Skiing

A few tips to help you make the most of your skiing vacation.
If you’re in Stowe to ski, this is the place you’ll be heading to! Weekends can be busy - so make sure you plan your day well to avoid sitting in traffic, or arriving to a full car park. In particular, Presidents Week and February vacation week can be very busy. An alternative to taking your own car is to take the Mountain Road shuttle from the Round Hearth. Our favourite place to eat is the Cliff House at the top of the Gondola. It’s a good idea to arrive early, as they don’t accept reservations. Food at the Spruce Base Camp is ok, but not as good as the Cliff House for about the same price. The Octagon at the top of theQuad is great for breakfast sandwiches, or to warm up when its too cold! An alternative is the HourGlass within the hotel, which has good food, and again similarly priced.

This is one of our favourite places to eat in Stowe. Located right in the heart of the village, Cork offers a small menu with a seasonally focussed selection of small plates, and a few main plates, accompanied by a great wine selection. They also offer a smaller selection of local beers.

It’s the closest breakfast and lunch venue to the house, just a 5 minute stroll on the corner with the Mountain Road. AND their lobster rolls and salads are simply the tastiest and greatest value in Vermont!

Unfortunately, the weather isn’t always supportive of our plans for outdoor activities, so it’s good to have something fun to do as an alternative.
