The Ski Capital of the East
Stowe bustles in winter when skiers and snowboarders flock here to challenge themselves on the long, steep trails careening down Vermont's tallest peak, Mt. Mansfield. With colonial homes, a lofty white church spire, and covered bridges nearby, the town offers classic New England atmosphere for apres-ski and other diversions for those not hitting the slopes. The town of 4,000 actually draws many visitors to its golf courses, hiking trails, fishing streams, and fall foliage before the snow starts to fly. Local spas offer pampering for skiers and non-skiers alike, and restaurants serve up locally sourced meals in cozy settings, making Stowe an indulgent vacation destination no matter how active you plan to be. With the Inspirock international travel planner, Stowe and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.

Where to stay in Stowe

Where you should stay in Stowe depends on why you’re visiting. If you plan to ski or snowboard and want to minimize your travel time between the gondola and your bed, opt for a place at the base of the resort or as close to it on Route 108 as possible. Look for ski-and-stay packages to save money on the combined cost of lift tickets and accommodations. If skiing or snowboarding is just part of the plan or not on the itinerary at all, stay right in town. You'll find a range of accommodation types, including charming inns and bed and breakfasts, and hotels and motels that serve both visitors on group trips and independent travelers.
