There are So Many Things To Do In Stowe

Are you here on vacation, and everyone else you know is skiing?  Looking for something to do until they come back?  Here are some suggestions:

1. Walk, snowshoe or hike in Smuggler's Notch - just steps away from the Mt. Mansfield parking area.

2. Snowshoe at Trapp Family Lodge, or one of the many Stowe Land Trust conserved properties, like Wiessner Woods, or Kirchner Woods.

3. Treat yourself to a spa day!  Topnotch, Stoweflake and The Lodge all offer wonderful options for treating yourself to what you deserve.

4. Relax at a cozy coffee shop, or at Cork in the afternoon with a glass of wine, after checking out the art exhibit at Helen Day Art Center, or perhaps checking out a book at the library

5. Shop 'til you drop at any one of these places, and more.

6. Take in that movie you've been wanting to see, by treating yourself to a matinee.

7. Check out the Stowe Area Association website for a continued list of fun things to do. 

Enjoy your stay in Stowe, Vermont, and happy New Year!

Cork in Stowe, VT! Open and Ready to Serve!

The highly anticipated opening of Cork, in Stowe, has happened!  Danielle Nichols who recently purchased the Blue Moon Cafe building, in Stowe village, has been scrambling to get ready, before the fall foliage rush.  Since Cork in Waterbury has met with such success over the years, it seemed natural to expand to a second location.  Cork will enhance vibrancy in Stowe village with the opportunity for people to meet, taste and sip wine, and dine on small plates of delectible food offerings.  The goal is to make the experience approachable and friendly to everyone.  Bringing people together in a thriving community setting is part of Danielle's vision.

Danielle says that it is "an incredible honor to own a piece of Stowe history".  The building was constructed in 1871, and is part of a collection of unique and historical buildings in the heart of Stowe village.  A lot of investment has been made, and work  taken place to get up and running, so a Kickstarter campaign has begun for those who would like opportunities to invest in what is presumed to be a highly popular business, just as Cork in Waterbury has been, over the years.  The Smith Macdonald Group helped Danielle with this successful commercial real estate transation.

Many have asked, if beer will part of the offerings.  The answer is yes, including such iconic favorites as Heady Topper by the Alchemist.
