Stowe Stories and Tips

Accommodations/Dining/Things To Do

Accommodations: Stowe is filled with wonderful B&Bs, country inns, and full-service resorts sure to please any taste. Within each category there is a range of services and rates. You’ll find inexpensive, casual B&Bs and beautifully decorated, luxury B&Bs; moderate country inns and inns with fireplaces and hot tubs in each room. The Green Mountain Inn, Stone Hill Inn (B&B) and the Meadows at Stoweflake (condos) are the best places to stay.

Dining: Stowe offers the full spectrum of dining experiences from casual to fine dining and includes nearly all types of cuisine including Steaks, Seafood, Italian, German/Viennese, Thai, Mexican, Continental and Japanese. There are over 60 restaurants from which to choose, many with wonderful views and most with roaring fireplaces. Michael's on the Mountain, Blue Moon, Trattoria de Festa and Mes Ami are my favorites.

Things To Do: Stowe is truly a year-round resort offering a wide range of activities. In winter, there is downhill and cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, snowmobiling, ice skating, sleigh rides and horseback riding. Spring, summer, and fall offer hiking, golf, tennis, canoeing, and horseback riding. Fly-fishing for trout in spring is a local favorite, and hot-air ballooning over the mountains in summer is an exciting experience. Throughout the year, you can enjoy the Recreation Path which begins in town and winds its way 5.5 miles toward the mountain through the woods, beside bubbling brooks and next to open fields. Depending on the season you can walk it, bike it, cross-country ski it, rollerblade it or snow shoe it. It is wonderful introduction to the beauty of Stowe. There are sights to see, shops to explore, art galleries in which to browse and antiques stores to search for treasures.
