Not Your Everyday Halloween

                 

Pumpkins, goblins and ghosts, oh my!  All Hallow's Eve, has turned into All Hallow's week, in Stowe.  And this year, the town has made special arrangements to close off Rt 100, north of the village, where some of the best trick or treating takes place.  This way the hundreds of kids who descend upon the village for tricks and treats, will be safe, and essentially be able to have more fun, not having to worry about crossing the busy street. 

There are enough events and activities for everyone of all ages, thoughout the week of Halloween.  Here are just some of the options:

  • Monday, Oct. 26 - "Trick or Tweet" at The Roost at Topnotch, from 3:30-6 pm.  Kids in costume eat for free
  • Friday, Oct. 30 - An annual favorite - the Stowe elementary school "ghost walk".  Come downtown at 2  p.m. to see the kids parade through the village, in their costumes.  We love to taking a break from work and head out to the street with baskets of candy to hand out
  • Saturday Oct. 31 - Halloween - Stowe village is the place to be.  Maple Street/Rt 100 will be closed off from School Street to Shaw's grocery store, from 5-8 pm, so the trick or treaters have freedom to roam all the neighbors who will be handing out candy for them
  • Saturday, Oct. 31 - Stowe Parks and Rec have a costume contest, spooky photo booth, music and games from 4 to 5:30.  Admission free, cash for games

For more information on additional events in the area, throughout the week, you can visit the Stowe Area Association's website.

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.

 

 

Celebrate Fall With These Exciting Events!

As the mountain ranges begin to change hue, and the days become shorter, new seasonal advertures are on the horizon.  Autumn in Stowe is one of the most beautiful times of the year. Pretty soon the smell of woodstove smoke and fresh mulled cider will fill the air.  In the meantime, don't forget to pause and mark your calendars for any number of fall events in the area.  One of our favorites is the British Invasion, which is coming up this weekend; starting with the block party in the village, Friday night, at 6:30.  There will be live music, food and beverages, and of course, British motor cars to check out and photograph.  The weather is supposed to be spectacular!

Looking for something involving recreation, check out The Stowe Mountain Bike Club's 5th annual Leaf Blower Classic.  A day of group rides througout the world class trail network of Stowe, enjoying specatular scenery, and joining your riding comrades for dinner, drinks and prizes, afterwards. 

No matter what you might choose during this beautiful time of year, you will enjoy the spectacular setting and scenery throughout the area.  For more information and a list of events in the area, click here.

      Skiing at Stowe Mt. Resort

      Skiing at Stowe Mt. Resort

      Skiing at Stowe Mt. Resort

      Stowe Mt. Resort Skiing is Just Around the Corner

      Update to our Blog: Stowe Mt. Resort will open to all seasons pass holders for one day only on November 10th.

      Skiing at Stowe Mt. Resort is coming in less than two weeks, Nov 17th is opening day.  We've had several days this past weekend with snow in the higher elevations, especially at Stowe!  This morning while I was feeding my twins breakfast there were large snow flakes coming down.  It was just a reminder that it's time to get my gear out of the shed, start to tune up the boards and prepare for the season.  Although my girls are only 14 months old, I'm getting excited to get them out in the snow and to start to teach them to ski in the coming years.

      But I wasn't the only one thinking of skiing this morning, the fine snow makers at Stowe Mt. Resort where already hard a work laying the base for the 2012-2013 season.  Here's some footage of the new snow making equipment in effect this morning.  They are blowing snow at the base of the 4-runner quad, but have been bringing in new equipment since last season, so the coverage this year should be very good.

      There's still time to get some dry land training in, get those legs ready, get the skis tuned up and to add duct tape to last year's gear.  I hope to see you on the mountain this year!

      If you are looking for a rental for the winter season we have several options left and if you are in need of a vacation rental, we have plenty of options, but they are getting booked as many people are planning to visit Stowe this year.  Email me today or visit Stowe VT Rentals to see what options we have available.

      Stowe is scheduled to open on Nov 17th, click here for more info.
