Stowe - A Four Season Destination
Only a handful of mountain resorts can truly claim world-class status, and in New England only Stowe, Vermont joins that elite company as a four season destination. And what a town Stowe is. The first hotel opened in 1848, and today Stowe lodging includes more than 50 luxury resorts, spas, romantic country inns, and B&Bs. Stowe dining is equally varied. The town boasts 40 restaurants, and has won more awards for culinary excellence than any New England town of similar size. Shopping, as you would expect, is just as rewarding. Every single one of Stowe's 70 shops and boutiques is unique and owner-operated - not a franchise to be found.
There are many reasons why summer visitors have flocked to Stowe for over 150 years: hiking, biking, fishing, sightseeing, golf, tennis and much more. Fall foliage is unparalleled. There are many facets to Stowe's famous winter allure: skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing. At the heart of all Stowe adventure is majestic Mt. Mansfield, Vermont's highest peak and one of the world's most famous ski and snowboarding mountains and the finest above-timberline hiking in Vermont. From Mansfield's summit, visitors can see three states, two countries, and the sixth Great Lake (Champlain). The challenge and majesty of Mt. Mansfield are perfectly matched by the history and charm of Stowe village, where guests find shopping, music, theater, and much more. Perhaps nowhere else in North America is there such an inspiring fusion of legendary mountain and historic town...
The Stowe Experience: one great mountain, one magic town. Unforgettable.
