If you’re fortunate enough to be able to stay in our mountain town for 30 days or more, you may wonder how you will find enough to do to fill all that time, especially if you are from a big city where hustle and bustle is a normal part of life. A month is a lot of time to fill, but we know that once you get the hang of the slower pace, you’ll soon find yourself wishing you had more time to spend in Stowe! In any case, this guide to your 30-day visit to Stowe, VT should help you find enjoyment and contentment during your stay. We can’t help you find more time, but we can definitely help you fill the hours you do have!
Except when you’re on the slopes, life moves at a slower pace in this part of Vermont, so taking the first week of your journey and getting to know your surroundings should be done in a slow and easy manner. Sleep in late, take walks around the neighborhood, and discover the meaning of the words unhurried and mellow. Take some mornings to find your new favorite breakfast restaurant. The Green Goddess Café at 618 S Main Street is one of our favorites, but perhaps you’ll enjoy the more classic breakfasts served at Butler’s Pantry, located in the heart of the Village area on Main Street. We won’t feel bad if you like something else better; we just encourage you to take your time and explore the culinary map of our favorite place on earth!
Once you’ve discovered the pace you like best, it’s time to start seeking adventure. While every season is our favorite, winter in Vermont is so spectacular we think it’s important to address the snow activities. From sledding to winter hikes to skiing, your 30-day journey will be very snow-centric. And because many of our guests are avid skiers, we like to suggest purchasing a seasonal pass from Stowe Mountain Resort. Featuring a variety of passes, you’re sure to find one that matches your financial needs. Knowing that you can wake up every morning of your winter visit in Stowe and spend the day on the slopes is absolutely priceless!
As each day passes, you may be amazed at the opportunities that arise during your Vermont journey. Stowe Tasting Tours offers beverage tasting tours of the best breweries, distilleries, and cideries in the area, including custom tours of the places you love most. The hiking trails in the region will lead you to roaring waterfalls such as Moss Glen Falls and to places known for their beauty and historic value like Smugglers’ Notch.
But perhaps the most beautiful moments when you visit Stowe, VT will be the ones spent in the quiet security of our Stowe Country Homes vacation escapes—moments that include sipping hot chocolate in front of a roaring fire, lazy hours spent reading in that comfy chair by the window, and quiet evenings watching sunsets and wildlife from the comfort of the back porch. Every day will offer a new adventure, and every night of your journey will be one spent in deep and dreamless sleep as you explore what some would say are the most beautiful vacation homes in the state!
