It only seems appropriate that a day devoted to celebrating the work ethic and social and economic achievements of the citizens who make our country great should be celebrated by doing nothing that even closely resembles work! Labor Day is September 3rd this year, and if you haven’t considered a vacation in Stowe, Vermont for your celebration we only have one question: Why not? As fall moves closer and the leaves start to change, Stowe offers these five ways for you to spend Labor Day weekend in Stowe.

Hit the Links

The weather this time of year is absolutely perfect for a day on the greens, and Stowe Country Club is an award-winning course with acres of rolling greens dotted with mature trees. This idyllic landscape soothes the soul no matter how bad your game! Located at 744 Cape Cod Road, there’s no more American way to celebrate Labor Day!

Head for the Wilderness

Even a small town like Stowe can seem crowded to the introverts among our guests, so why not spend your Labor Day fishing for the night’s dinner? Rent a pole and bait from the Fly Rod Shop (they have maps for the best fishing spots) and spend your day communing with nature. For those who like company with their fishing trips, Catamount Fishing Adventures is a fishing guide service that will lead you to the hot spots when you’re spending Labor Day weekend in Stowe. 

Picnic by the Falls for Labor Day Weekend in Stowe

The Moss Green Falls Trail is about three miles long and leads you to the breathtaking Moss Green Falls hiking area nestled in the woods. Pack a backpack with a simple lunch and hike to the base for a quiet and romantic picnic or continue to the top for a view of the valley that will have you forgetting to breathe! The beauty of the Stowe landscape is unmistakable from these two vantage points.

Ben & Jerry’s Waterbury Factory

Just because the summer is ending doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the mouthwatering dairy delights offered on the Ben & Jerry’s Factory Tour. Located about nine miles south of Stowe in Waterbury, tickets are $4 for adults, $3 for seniors, and free for children under 12. Open every day except for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day, here’s your chance to see how the magic is made when you spend Labor Day weekend in Stowe!

Stay Home & Play

Simple moments often offer the biggest impact. A day spent enjoying the comforts of one of our Stowe Country Homes can change your life! Comfortable and relaxing, these are the places you can grill the fish you caught earlier and enjoy it with a glass of wine as you watch the sunset from the deck of your vacation escape. Reserve yours today and have the best Labor Day weekend you’ve ever had by choosing one of our rentals, whether they are our 6 bedrooms, 8 bedrooms, or our other rentals!
