Stowe Village


Stowe is widely revered as the Ski Capital of the East and has proudly been a popular family vacation destination since the 1860’s. The endearing town of Stowe is a unique village filled with authentic country stores and century old inns that accentuate the quaint, small town feel of this highly regarded community. This quintessential New England town offers spectacular art galleries, a variety of restaurants that will excite even the most critical of foodies, a plethora of bars boasting only the best local beers on tap, a vibrant nightlife filled with live music and dancing, and exceptional retail shops for anything else you may need.

Things To Do


Stowe proudly provides year-round recreational adventures. During the summer months, there are multiple local golf courses, the popular Stowe Recreation Path, miles of biking routes, and an endless amount of hiking trails. Stopping at the infamous Ben & Jerry’s factory for an ice cream is a must-do after hiking the Pinnacle trail on a sunny day. You can go fishing or rent a kayak, canoe, or stand up paddleboard at the nearby idyllic Waterbury Reservoir. Pay a visit to the shops on Church Street in Burlington and watch the sun set behind the Adirondack Mountains on the Lake Champlain waterfront. Be sure to stop by The Alchemist Brewery for the famed Heady Topper beer after a day of zip lining from the highest peak in Vermont. Tired from all your adventures but still needing to get your mountain fix? Drive up the Toll Road and take the breathtaking walk across the top of Mount Mansfield to the tallest point in Vermont.

Besides having access to the best skiing and riding in the East, there is an abundance of wintertime activities to keep you busy in Stowe. Stowe Mountain Resort offers excellent Nordic skiing at our Cross Country Center, snowshoeing, and ice skating at Spruce Peak. If you need a break from skiing, you can indoor rock climb at the Adventure Center, see a concert at the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center, or go into the village for bowling and a movie at the local theatre!
