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.

  • Nice drive on a rainy day, we wished we had time to go back in better weather to explore the trails.  more »
  • We didn't have time to actually go hiking here, on the way back home we saw pictures online and decided to see the road ourselves. It's definitely worth spending more time here. picturesque road, fres...  more »

  • You will feel closer to God here. Peaceful
  • Strange to rate a location rather than an establishment- just go. We went for foliage and I'm sure it's also amazing in other times of the year. The colors were off the chain. Drive up. Spend a few hours. Hike around. Enjoy. No disappointment here.
  • Beautiful campground! For such a small campground your site feels cozy and private. Clean bathrooms and great views of the mountains. Wish we could have stayed longer. Highly recommend!
  • Camp sites are fairly secluded with a nice fire pit. Running water is pottable and clean. Shower is pay, but nice. Great view of the stars on a clear night. Best of all the staff is friendly and helpful. Be sure to take a minute at the Ranger Station to check out all the Humming birds.
  • Very quiet and EXCEPTIONALLY clean grounds, camp sites, bathrooms and showers! They facilities are cleaned every hour or 2. I have been to many campgrounds and this one is BY FAR the nicest I have been to!!! The views on the drive in/out are exceptional and breathtaking. All of the site's have fire pits with cooking grills attached as well as picnic tables. Firewood and Ice are available at the Ranger station where you check in. If you stay here, be sure to drive the Toll road and go to the top of Mt. Mansfield. The road closes by 5 PM so go early and plan a day of it. Lots of beautiful trails to hike around at the top as well as photo ops. It is one of the few places in the U.S. with true Alpine forest. Also make your way up to Smugglers Notch, which has plenty of trails, large boulders, and nooks and crannies to explore.
