Winter Destinations - Stowe Vermont

So the winter months are upon us and I thought it would be a good time to take a look at bed and breakfasts around the world offering winter entertainments. First up is Northern Vermont’s, city of Stowe.

Stowe is a year-round resort town located in Northern Vermont. Visitors from all over the world come to Stowe to enjoy the New England charm, stunning scenery, and endless activities. This area is famous for its world-class ski areas on Mt. Mansfield and Spruce Peak. Stowe hosts numerous festivals to highlight the sport including Spring Summit Celebration and the 61st Annual Sugar Slalom - one of the oldest and most esteemed races in the U.S. Visitors looking for milder winter activities can enjoy skating on frozen ponds or simply strolling along the Stowe Recreation Path.

Two bed and breakfasts worth a look if you are making your way to this area are: Fitch Hill Inn located in Hyde Park and Moose Meadow Lodge located in Waturbury. Fitch Hill inn is a Federal style home, c.1797, with a Victorian front porch on a hill overlooking the Green Mountains. It is 1/4 mile from scenic Vermont Hwys 15 & 100, providing a quiet location that is still close to all the activities in Northern Vermont. Moose Meadow is nestled on 86 secluded acres in the Green Mountains, the Adirondack style Moose Meadow Lodge in Waterbury, Vermont invites you to enjoy a truly unique B&B experience. The Lodge features four luxury guest rooms with private baths, hot tub, hiking trails, a pond, and the Sky Loft - a glass-enclosed gazebo at the highest point of the property.
