Stowe house description

Charming home perfectly located in Stowe village now available for rental. Stowe Village's oldest home, 'The Wright House' was built in 1811 and has been tastefully restored and updated to serve as a comfortable family home with two bedrooms and two full baths. The home retains much of its original charm with its wide plank flooring yet adds modern touches such as updated kitchen, gas fireplace, wireless internet access, and HD Cable TV. Excellent location for skiers and non-skiers alike, with ALL village amenities within walking distance including the free Mountain Road Shuttle. The property overlooks the historic Green Mountain Inn & the Vermont Ski Museum. The spacious downstairs includes eat-in kitchen, dining room, two separate living areas, and a full bath. Two bedrooms upstairs share a large bathroom with claw foot bath tub/shower. Master bedroom includes a queen bed and walk in closet and second bedroom has two extra long twin beds.

Canoeing & Kayaking: The beautiful lakes and rivers of the Green Mountains are best enjoyed from a canoe or kayak. If you don’t have much experience, the American Canoe Association has certified guides that can take you out and show the skills necessary to enjoy a day out on the water.

Within a short distance of Stowe lie many great rivers and peaceful lakes. The Lamoille and Winooski rivers wind through farms and forested countryside and offer excellent river trips. Lake Elmore is easily accessible and features a state campground and beach, and the Green River Reservoir is a pristine and undeveloped area, good for getting away from it all.

The following companies offer canoe and kayak rentals and trips:
AJ's Ski & Sports
Umiak Outfitters
Pinnacle Ski & Sports

Fishing: Anglers from novice to expert will enjoy the fishing in the Stowe area. To find the best spots, hire a local guide and your sure to hook into some big fish. The local waters hold healthy populations of trout, bass and pike

The Lamoille and Winooski Rivers are two of the more popular trout fisheries close to Stowe. The best times to visit are early summer and then again in the fall when the fish are beefing up for the winter. The smaller rivers in the area is where you’ll find some native brook trout, a small beautiful fish that thrives in the mountain waters.

If it’s bass you are interested in, check out one of the many lakes and reservoirs scattered throughout the area.

The staff at Catamount Fishing Adventures is very knowledgeable and offers guided tours as well as condition reports on their website.

Biking & Hiking: Cottonbrook, Old Country Road, Stowe Hollow and Brownsville are some of the popular mountain biking trails in the area. They are maintained by the Stowe Mountain Bike Club. Several local bike shops offer guided tours to help you get out and explore the trails.
A mellower option which is good for families is to ride the Recreation Path as it wanders through forests and meadows beside the West Branch River. You can stop to shop & eat along the way when you need a break.

From mellow walks to soaring peaks, there are trails for hikers of all abilities around Stowe.
Weissner Woods is a 80 acres of land that has been preserved in its natural state for all to enjoy. Wildlife commonly seen in Wiessner Woods include partridge, thrush, grouse, falcons, and owls, as well as deer, fox, and an occasional bear or moose.
You can travel a section of the Long Trail to the Summit of Mount Mansfield, the highest peak in Vermont at at 4393’. Expect steep sections and incredible views from the top!

              Stowe, being a 200-year-old picturesque New England village, has drawn people over the years to vacation amongst its fantastic ski slopes and imposing Green Mountains. The amount of year round activities available is endless, yet, if preferred, one can sit back and relax in the rustic natural beauty of the countryside. Stowe was recently ranked number one for skiing in Eastern North America by both Ski and Skiing Magazines and has continued to maintain its renowned low key reputation as a hide-out for vacationing celebrities and leaders of industry.

              Throughout the year Stowe hosts many festivals / events including classical music in the meadow, winter carnival, horse shows, the hot air balloon festival, antique car shows, the British invasion, polo tournaments and antique shows. This lively resort has a plethora of fine dining and night spots for all to enjoy. If you have never had the chance to experience Stowe, we would love the opportunity to introduce you to this American classic.
