Stowe's location in a broad, fertile valley between the Green Mountains and Mount Mansfield—Vermont's highest peak at nearly 4,400 feet—makes it an ideal launching pad for outdoor recreation. Stowe Mountain Resort awaits skiers with 485 acres across 116 powdery trails, and snowboarders can catch big air or an aerial sighting of Bigfoot on the half-pipe.To counterbalance its adventurous outdoors attractions, Stowe also cultivates a more abstractly adventurous art scene. The West Branch Gallery & Sculpture Park combines a traditional art gallery with an innovative and spacious sculpture park, showcasing the handiwork of budding and mid-career local artists.

If you take a moment to survey the photos hanging on the wall in Harrison's, you'll see one of Andrew Kneale, cheerily manning his childhood lemonade stand. And if you glance over at the bar, you'll see that same boy, a few decades older, smiling as he pours a glass of wine for a guest. Andrew's mother, Kathy, is likely nearby, whether escorting people to a table or in the kitchen baking one of her beloved raspberry pies.
For the pair, the restaurant is a labor of love for two reasons: not only is it an homage to David Harrison Kneale, the family's late husband and father, but they've also been feeding the Stowe community since opening the Partridge Inn back in 1973. The dinner-only service means Harrison's is rarely less than full, so it's not surprising the small-town spot got "high marks" from the Boston Globe's travel section and the local teacher who grades everything. The menu's charming balance of comfort and class makes it hard to choose between dishes such as steak au poivre rubbed with black peppercorns and pecan-encrusted ahi; but whatever you pick, make sure to save room for that raspberry pie.
