Stick Season in Stowe, Vermont

Stick Season is one of Stowe’s best kept secrets.
Traditionally, each year from November 1 to December 15.

Stone Hill Inn - Anniversaries, Birthdays, Engagements - Celebrate Life Together

 

Stowe, Vermont is a true 4-season destination, but if you had to say there’s a downtime, the weeks between fall foliage season and ski season would be it! This transition in seasons, when the leaves have fallen but snow has not, is the perfect time to explore Stowe and here’s why.


4 Reasons to Visit Stowe during Stick Season

1. Less Crowds
Stowe is popular, and for good reason. Stick Season gives visitors a chance to explore Stowe, without traffic, lines and crowds.

2. Foodie Paradise
During peak seasons, our wonderful restaurants and breweries get busy. We love Stick Season because we can easily get into all of our favorite spots.

During the last week of October many of our local restaurants participate in Dine Stowe. In 2018, restaurants featured multi-course specials for $20.18. Diners enjoyed cuisine from American to Italian and from fine dining to craft brew pub fare. Stick Season is the ideal time for foodies to explore our town named #2 by Fodors Travel in the “World’s 10 Best Ski Towns for Foodies.”

Need a dining recommendation?  No problem, we can’t wait to share our favorites with you!

3. Quiet Trails
November and December are still full of unmatched natural beauty and moderate temperatures. The fallen leaves give way to new views focused on the serenity of the mountains, rivers and lakes that surround you.

4. Better Prices
Bonus! Lodging prices are cheaper in the off-season, and we often run Vermont Resident Lodging Discounts, too.

One of the Best Vermont Fall Foliage Drives

A leaf peeping trip to Vermont isn’t complete without a beautiful fall foliage drive through the New England countryside.

We recommend this 60-mile Stowe and Northern Mountains Loop fall foliage drive to guests staying at our award-winning Stowe Bed and Breakfast.

Stowe Fall Foliage
This drive starts and ends in Stowe, Vermont — the #1 ranked fall foliage leaf peeping destination in the entire United States, according to TripAdvisor. Stowe in the fall is incredibly breathtaking!

For a unique view of Vermont’s Green mountains, consider taking a gondola sky ride or hot air balloon trip. Both indulgences provide aerial views of fall foliage in Vermont that you won’t soon forget.

This fall foliage driving trip guides you by two of Stowe’s favorite waterfalls, Moss Glen Falls (also, one of our guest room’s namesake) and Bingham Falls. We suggest jumping out at each waterfall and taking photos, enjoying a picnic, or taking a brisk fall hike.  This Vermont fall foliage drive also passes Lake Elmore State Park, which features a beautiful Vermont mountain lake.

With classic images of Vermont’s Green Mountains around every twist and turn, this enchanting fall foliage drive delights locals and visitors alike.

For the Adventurous – 5 Absolutely Breathtaking Stowe Vermont Hikes

Sometimes scenic drives just aren’t enough to get your fall foliage fix – especially when on a daily basis you’re surrounded by the hustle and bustle of city life. In those cases, we recommend taking off and enjoying the beauty of one of these five spectacular hikes:

Leaf Season: From early September through late October

During leaf season, visitors to Stowe delight in the pure gold, orange and red hues of our fall foliage while enjoying many fun autumn events. For over 100 years, guests have traveled to Stowe to marvel at our New England mountain vistas and brilliant colors. We hope that you decide to make the trek to our beloved Green Mountain State this fall. It will exceed your expectations!

Looking for Stowe Mountain Lodging?

Stone Hill Inn is a couples-only Stowe lodging option for your spring Vermont skiing getaway. Located nine minutes from skiing and six minutes from downtown Stowe, we’re the perfect retreat to get-away and relax after exciting days out in the snow.

AMAZING STAY IN STOWE! The Inn is welcoming, warm and beautiful, the breakfasts were amazing, the location is perfect. We will most certainly return to this little slice of heaven!!! TripAdvisor Review March 2018


 

Breakfast in a Snow Globe


Breakfast is obviously a favorite at Stone Hill Inn.
Guests comment that eating breakfast with fresh falling snow is like eating in a snow globe. We agree!

 

Our dining room features 14′ ceilings, 40 windows and individual tables for each guest room. Fresh fruit, home baked breads, muffins, and coffee cakes, gluten free options, homemade granola and yogurt. That’s just the start. The eggs are always fresh; the syrup (Grade A: Med Amber) is always warmed. Sunshine, snow, coffee and delicious breakfast aromas announce the beginning of the day.

**Don’t let diet restrictions keep you from enjoying time away and our lovely Stowe bed and breakfast. We’re happy to make your stay perfect in every way we can. With advanced notice, we are able to prepare AIP friendly meals, as well as meet restrictions for Paleo, Gluten Free, Vegan, Vegetarian, and Pescatarian diets.

Perfect Winter Getaway! The inn is a quiet and peaceful place to stay, unlike the huge resorts, yet still right in the heart of Stowe. Fantastic gourmet breakfasts, freshly baked cookies everyday, local recommendations, and excellent conversation. We look forward to returning! TripAdvisor Review April 2018
