Brewery

Great local brewery with awesome German food.
Great place to grab a beer and for great Austrian and American food. They have an amazing Biergarten in the summer months as well. This place is certainly a must visit while here. The chicken schnitzel is amazing as is the Cobb salad with chicken schnitzel and the large grill platter for a take of all their sausages.

The Trapp Family Lodge can be seen. From your apartment across the valley to the left of the ski slopes. They have multiple dining options, their high end main dining room, the Kaffeehaus deli and bakery and the very famous von Trapp Brewing Bierhall. You can get massages at their spa and use their indoor pool and 20 person outdoor jacuzzi with any spa service (insider secret) as well as buy a property or trail pass to use their grounds or access their 60km of private trails for mountain biking or hiking in the summer or fall or cross country or snow shoeing in the winter months. They also have a ton of property tours you can take like their “Meet the Cows” tour to meet their cute herd of Scottish highland cows, their family history tour where you can meet a real life von Trapp or a maple sugar tour to checkout their maple sugaring process by snow shoe. A favorite activity of ours in the winter is to rent cross country skis or snow shoes and head down to their Bierhall for a well deserved beer and hot meal before making the trek back to their outdoor center. If you can walk, you can snow shoe!

The rec path plus amazing duri bnb any season. This paved 7 mile path goes through town and head up towards Mount Mansfield and Spruce Peak where the Stowe mountain ski resort is located (it doesn’t make it to the mountain though) there are many eateries and shops to visit along the way including Sushi Yoshi, Tres Amigos, idyletyme, Piecasso, Stowe bath, kitchens and linens, Yellow Turtle and many more! It runs along the Little River and crosses over 10 pedestrian bridges along the way. There are many amazing spots to take a nice cool dip in the river during the summer months. Highly recommended! You can cross country ski it in the winter or run/walk/bike it in the summer months. We suggest renting bikes from AJs which is closest to the start of the path.

Vermont’s tallest waterfall, Moss Glenn Falls is a great place to visit. You’ll park and trek through some beaver habit (check out the crazy big trees they’ve chewed down) along some boards that have been placed on the ground until you reach an area where the path starts rising up. Follow the path for breathtaking views of this waterfall or if in the summer months follow the river along its path to reach the base of the waterfall. During the spring melt this waterfall is a torrent of water which is an amazing site to see. Do not access the river portion and base of the waterfall during springtime snow melt as the water flow is too high and dangerous.

This amazing spring comes rushing out of the ground heading into “The Notch” at the top of mountain round. Only accessible Spring, Summer and Fall by car and by foot, cross county ski or snow shoe up the notch road in the winter. You can even drink the water (at your own risk but we’ve never had a problem). Check out the historical info on the site once there. Cool spot!

Smugglers notch or as locals call it “The Notch” is a great place the visit any time of the year. The area has some great hikes paths and is a favorite area for tock climbing enthusiasts with is large boulders on the ground and large rock walls. It’s a crazy road that has giant boulders literally in the way at some points that have fallen into the ravine over the years. Between Mount Mansfield and Spruce Peak it gets its name from the prohibition era when folks use to smuggler liquor down from Canada into the US. We highly suggest the hike up to Sterling Pond at the tip of Spruce Peak in the spring, summer and fall months and cross country skiing or snowshoeing up the notch road in the winter for breathtaking views.
