The Best Place to Vacation That You’d Never Guess – Stowe, VT (Part 2)

Part 1 on Burlington HERE!


Where to stay

There’s also a spa here. Obviously Vermont spa treatments aren’t going to be as great as what you’d experience in a city, but a spa treatment is still a spa treatment! I’d try and stay away from the nail services though – they turn out looking pretty cheap.

But theeee best thing about Topnotch in the summer is that you can rent one of the share houses on the property for pretty cheap! These houses are huge and in their own little neighborhood next to the hotel. Staying in a house vs. a hotel room makes the experience feel that much more personal and relaxed – what Vermont is all about #cheesey.


I love the food scene in Stowe. Just like Burlington, all of the restaurants are super picturesque with ~romantic~ outdoor seating areas.

Oh! You should also check out the Farmer’s Market on Sunday’s. SO many samples and amazing local food. I always get the dairy-free chocolate gelato and approximately 1 million jelly with saltine cracker samples.


You could probably guess that Stowe isn’t exactly a shopping mecca, but there are still some really cute stores (actually way better than anything in my hometown of Westwood, MA).

Bike riding on the Stowe recreation path is an easy, fun activity to do as the bike rental shop is right next to the path. The path takes you right into town, and on the way you pass a ton of restaurants that you can stop at if you want to break up the bike ride.

For those that are as adventurous, athletic and daring as my sister and I (TOTALLY KIDDING), we’d recommend hiking Stowe Pinnacle. It’s definitely challenging enough so that you feel accomplished for the day and the view is absolutely unreal.

There are also a ton of good breweries in Stowe, buuuuut I don’t drink beer so you’d prob be better off googling this one yourself. 😉
