Boutique, Victorian-Style Inn with Gourmet Restaurant
Built in 1814, The Stowe Inn’s Victorian mansion brims with antique furnishings, including oriental rugs and a mahogany bar from the early 20th century. More wood furnishings accent the 16 guest rooms, where you’ll also find Edwardian-style beds. The wraparound porch gives guests an opportunity to look over all of Stowe, or sit and admire the river and covered bridge nearby. Minutes from the bike and recreation paths, and situated right downtown, The Stowe Inn offers a multitude of options.
Chefs at the onsite River House Restaurant use locally sourced ingredients to prepare an array of dishes, including grass-fed beef and pork belly and saffron risotto with grilled freshwater shrimp. You’ll also find several dining options elsewhere in town, ranging from upscale seafood spots to craft breweries. After visiting the area’s artisan shops and specialty stores, head back to the inn for a relaxing dip in the outdoor pool.
This getaway includes two tickets to the Ben & Jerry’s factory tour in nearby Waterbury. You’ll get behind-the-scenes access to the popular ice-cream company's production process, see cows grazing in the fields, and sample the flavor of the day.
Stowe, Vermont: Quiet Village Flush with Outdoor Adventure
The quaint town of Stowe is nestled in the quiet countryside of northern Vermont. State law bans billboards, ensuring unobstructed views of the sugar maples and hemlock covering the Green Mountains along the roadways. Hiking opportunities abound on mountainside trails that range from steep vertical climbs to flat sprawls. Stop by a local sport shop to rent bikes for exploring the Stowe Recreation Path, a paved 5.3-mile-long avenue that winds along the sparkling West Branch River and through Stowe's main commercial strip. The strip is lined with independent shops and roadside diners and stands out for its lack of chain franchises.
