Stowe Village was settled in the early 1800s. This village location provides an opportunity to discover this world of beauty and charm. From the specialty shops, restaurants, art center, library, playhouse and craft shops, you will stroll through 200 years of history. The Helen Day Art Center and Library is steps from the Inn and offers exceptional exhibits and a quiet reading library. Use the village lighted tennis courts or in winter take a spin on the village ice rink. Enjoy entertaining live theater on Main St with Stowe Theater products.
The Stowe Trolley, which is actually a bus, runs summer and winter. In winter, the Trolley provides a transportation service for locals and visitors. For a small fee you can ride the trolley and leave your car at the Inn. The Trolley stops just steps from our front door!
The Stowe Congregational Church is one block from the Inn and hosts over 100 weddings each summer. This scenic New England church with the tall white steeple is selected by many visitors who get married in Stowe. If you are planning a wedding, consider renting the Inn for your special guests. They will be able to walk to the church and enjoy the town from our location.
Our favorite Village restaurants include the Blue Moon Cafe, Fridas, Harrisons, Cafe on Main and the Whip Bar and Grill. For a little evening treat or great ice cream you don't want to miss the Malt Shop.
