Stowe is an amazing town in all four seasons, I will focus on fall but rest assured a winter round up is in the works! The first thing you will notice when you visit this amazing town are the wonderful people; all the locals are beyond psyched to live here which means you will meet amazing people wherever you go. If you want to live like a local, with all the insider tips, please read on, I tried my best to link all the relevant websites for you below but don’t hesitate to comment if you have any questions!!
Rent Bikes, Trapps Family Lodge is well known for their biking trails, they have trails for all levels, my 4.5 year old has been learning to mountain bike at this location. Finish your ride at their amazing new Bierhall for food and a cold beverage. Cady Hills are the amazing local mountain bike trails and a bit more technical then Trapps. For those who are looking for a gentler ride OR walk the Stowe Rec Path is fantastic and will get you views with big red barns, and the ski mountain in the background. The trial leaves from the big white church in town and goes 5 miles out to a cute covered bridge. If you follow me on social media @megliljedahl most of my scenery shots are taken on this lovely path.Pinnacle Hike is my favorite, it is an AMAZING one hour hike and gives you breathtaking view for a somewhat short hike. There are plenty of other hikes but this one gets you the “Biggest Bang for your buck”. In the fall you get a spectacular display of color looking back towards Mount Mainsfield. Bring a pack to carry your kids or take it slow and let them give it a shot around the age of five.Percy Farm Corn Maze is a sure winner for the whole family. Just off of route 108 they have a fun winding maze that runs through a beautiful corn field. After we got through the first few yards stopping to pick up EVERY single husk of corn on the ground my son really got into the adventure of being “lost” in a maze!
Edson Hill– This is where Bob and I go when we have a night away from the kids, the food is outstanding and the décor even better. You can sit out on the patio under the heat lamps or cozy up inside depending on the weather. Get a reservation if you are going here.
Plate– This is our other choice an adult dinner out. Owned by a cool couple from LA it’s got a fun rustic meets swanky LA vibe. The food is always great with lots of Vegetation options if you are into that, everything is amazing!
Top Notch– If it’s a nice evening you will likely find our family camped out at the Roost Restaurant at the Top Notch enjoying cocktail hour on the patio while the boys run around playing lawn games. This spot is super family friendly, and their menu has something for everyone.
PK Coffee– ALL THE WAY! It is a short drive up mountain road and Everything is Yum! I personally love their Lattes the best.
We hope to see you in Vermont soon!
