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!

Stowe Restaurants -- Some of our Favorites Revisited!

 

Many ski towns offer a variety of food, but not a variety with quality.  The Stowe area is known for having both; here are a few of our local favorites:

Markets & Quick Eats:

Cork located in downtown Waterbury, VT at the corner of Stowe Street. This wine bar and market is operated by a long time friend Danielle Moffat. She offers a wide variety of beautiful tasting wines along with a cozy atmosphere. Stop by on your way to Stowe for a drink and pick up a bottle on your way out the door. 

Commodities Natural Market, newly opened in Stowe, this is the second location for Commodities the other being the East Village in NYC.  Run by Michael and Audra Hughes Commodities offers a full array of natural and orgainc products from prepared foods to bulk items.  Commodities has a ton of local products ranging from cheese, veggies, bread to beer and wine. 

Casual Dining:

Harrison's, ask for Andrew and Kathy Kneale, the mother and son duo that has been pleasing locals with their food for decades. Casual dining located in the Stowe village. Known for their mussels, but everything that comes out of the kitchen is great. 

The Bench locatied on the Mt. Road (Rt. 108) just after the movie theater, this new addition to the Stowe restuarant scene has been welcomed by locals and visitors.  Offering wood fired food and tons of beer on tap it makes for a great combo after spending the day on the slopes.  The wings rock and my kids love the mac'n'cheese and pizza. 

Piecasso Pizzeria, NYC slices in Stowe also rated Top 11 slices in America by Travel and Leisure Magazine. They have a great family set up and also a cool bar and game room, plus the pizza is great. 

Phoenix Bar & Table, owned and operated by long time local resturant operator and chef Jack Pickett, Phoenix offers a varitey of seafood and unique eats that span the world.  The kale and wedge salads are terrific as well as the po-boy sandwiches.  A great option for lunch and dinner.  

Plate, located on Main Street, next to Coldwell Banker Carlson Real Estate, offers locally sourced Vermont food made in a healthly Califorina style.  They offer everything from vegan and gluten free to a full gamut of meat options.  

Gracie's, another Stowe Classic, run by Archie, you'll never leave there hungry. Known for their burgers, Gracie's take it to the next level. I love the boxer and their famous chicken sandwich. 

Cactus Cafe is Stowe's Tex-Mex favorite. Offering their famous jalapeño chips at the table, beware they bring the heat. Also on the menu are slow smoked pulled pork tacos, a southern twist to a Mexican standby. Wash it all down with their Mansfield marg! 

McCarthy's is the only stop for breakfast in Stowe. They've been serving it up for over 30 years and know how breakfast should be done. Ask for Diane, she'll probably be at the door waiting for you with a smile. Their homemade corn beef hash is made from scratch, just like the maple nut bread. 

The Roost & Flannel, located at Topnotch Resort, these are two nice options for different kinds of fun.  The Roost offers a relaxed environmnet with good bites to share along with craft beer and cocktails.  Enjoy shufflepuck or relax outside by the fire.  Flannel, is a more formal dining setting, a bistro with flare and great patio seating. 

Formal Dining:

Michael's On The Hill located in Waterbury center, just south of Stowe. This chef owned restaurant sources local foods at a very high quality. Offering tasting menus and creativity, Michael's if perfect for a romantic dinner. Try their Manhattan, made with port wine, as a bourbon lover; I give it two thumbs up. 

Hen Of The Wood located just off I-89 in Waterbury this kitchen has been cranking out high-end food for many years. The unique location and old stone mill offers a view of the river and waterfall which is only match by the quality of the food. 

Kitchen Table Bistro, a bit further away, located in Richmond, but well worth the drive. As with the other two they locally source their food and offer a stunning wine list. The menu changes with the seasons and offers a real look into handcrafted Vermont food.
