Stowe – Ski Capital of the East and a Classic Vermont Resort Village

Travel into Vermont’s Green Mountains. Along the ride, your guide will tell of the region’s rich history, point out unique geologic formations and share a bit of Yankee humor.

As you enter the Waterbury area, stop at “The Vermont Annex” retail outlet for Cabot Cheese, Danforth Pewter and Lake Champlain Chocolates. Enjoy the shopping and the free samples.

Your next stop is the Cold Hollow Cider Mill where you will open the door to a mouth-watering aroma of fresh-baked cider donuts and apple cider. The Cider Mill gift shop offers a fine collection of Vermont specialty food products, crafts and wines.

Stop for a photo opportunity at the enchanted, but haunted, Emily’s Covered Bridge. Learn of the bitter-sweet love story.

Luncheon is served at the Von Trapp Family Lodge. The Sound of Music resonates as you arrive at this classic Austrian chalet and restaurant, currently owned and operated by the Von Trapp family. A luncheon buffet will prepare you for a walk around the exquisite property and impressive display gardens and will leave you singing “The Hills Are Alive.” Bring cameras!

After lunch, enjoy time at your leisure exploring the charming Village of Stowe. Visit Shaw’s General Store, boutiques and galleries.

For the perfectly sweet ending to your day, visit the Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory. From Chunky Monkey to Cherry Garcia, a scoop of “Vermont’s Finest” is a must.
