Inn at a Glance: The Stowe Inn
Built in 1814, The Stowe Inn’s mansion brims with antique furnishings, including oriental rugs and a mahogany bar from the early 20th century. More wood furnishings accent the main inn’s 16 guest rooms, where you’ll also find Edwardian-style beds. The 22 rooms in the motel-style Country Lodge building offer amenities such as country quilting.
- Solve the murder mystery: The inn hosts Murder Mystery dinners, during which guests get to enjoy a three-course meal, a tour of the haunted basement, and murder mystery game (additional fees apply).
- Eat locally sourced cuisine at River House Restaurant, which serves delicious plates such as lemon-pepper grilled chicken and prime rib.
- Get cozy and curl up next to the crackling fireplace in the living room.
- In warmer weather hang out for a while on the wraparound porch, which gives you excellent views of all of Stowe.
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, lined with independent shops and roadside diners, stands out for its lack of chain franchises.
