Overview

The highlight of this week in Vermont was renewing my love for the town. I have visited Stowe at least 10 times in the last 15 years and every time I go, I love the town more than the previous visit. There is so much to do and see. You should review literature and make your own choices as to what to do but here are my top five things for your enjoyment of your week: 1. Dine out at a fantastic restaurant such as Emily’s, Ten Acres Lodges, or Trapp Family Lodge. The food is wonderful and each is very charming. 2. Dine out at a local pub such as Charlie’s B, Mr. Pickwick’s (we always stop here at least once), or The Whip. 3. Take a gondola ride (if it is open). The views are fanta...Read More

Grill 108

Restaurant

Quote:
This is an excellent restaurant. We had so many choices of restaurants in Stowe and I was glad we selected Grill 108. I would definitely return. While waiting for our food, I gazed at the décor of the restaurant. We were seated in a very large booth which I enjoyed since we were not cramped at all. The benches have very high backs, which certainly is great for romantic settings. Unlike some benches, these benches included very thick cushions, which made for great comfort! There is a lot of wood molding around the room, which adds to the richness of the décor. There also are many prints to look at. Very enjoyable scenery! The food was delicious. I ordered ribs, which were so tender that I...Read More

Dutch Pancake Cafe

Restaurant | "Mouth-watering pancakes at the Dutch Pancake Café"

Quote:
We had to wait a bit before this restaurant opened up but it was well worth the short wait. I had read a little about the restaurant but I was not prepared for how delicious the pancakes would be. What is a Dutch pancake? We found out a Dutch pancake has a special recipe than the recipes you may use at home. In addition, the pancakes are prepared in a Dutch skillet. Each pancake is large since the size of the skillet is 12 inches in diameter. Of course, you could order “plain” Dutch pancakes, but most people will spend quite a long time looking over the menu to decide which ingredients to add. I, of course, knew from the beginning chocolate would be one of my extra ingredients. For less than $9...Read More

Attraction | "Falling in love with Stowe’s Recreation Path"

Year after year, I use this path for walking, running, and biking. Of all the places I have vacationed in, this pathway is absolutely the nicest. The pathway is so nice that I ended up using the Stowe Rec Path every single day I was on vacation! As I was doing one of my daily walks, I thought of all the reasons this path (nationally recognized by the way) is so vacationer-friendly. The primary reason that the pathway is used so much is the multitude of access points and the location. By that, I mean most tourists can get to the path by walking a short distance from either a restaurant or motel on Route 108. There are also some access points with parking lots (and portable toilets) if you are staying a...Read More

Stowe Shopping

Attraction | "Save Time for Shopping while in Stowe"

I am not much of a shopper but I always make some time in my week for some shopping while in Stowe. Shopping in Stowe is a delight since there are several pockets of stores and as you wander from one to another, you definitely feel the New England charm. First up for me is always artsy jewelry stores. This summer I was dismayed to find my all time favorite store had gone out of business but I found two great substitutes. The Stowe Craft Gallery and Vermont Heritage Gifts and Crafts had a very nice selection of jewelry as well as other unusual gifts. Make sure you look at the wonderful kaleidoscopes and outdoor sculptures. Very unusual and very tempting. Yes, I did add to my collection of jewelry ...Read More
