Group activities

  • Take a scenic hike in the wintry landscapes of Stowe’s nature. Whether your snowshoeing skill level is the Stowe Recreation Path or up the side of Mount Mansfield, you are sure to find the perfect path for you with beautiful views.


  • Stowe, at night, Lantern Tours is a 1-hour walking tour around Stowe village. Carry a lantern while taking in the rich history of Stowe and hear about the local ghost stories too! Kids under 10 are free and the rest of the family is very fairly priced making this a perfect addition to your holiday.


Thanksgiving dinner

  • Mountainside Resort condos are perfect for this holiday as the fully equipped kitchens and full dining room make for the perfect preparation of a home-cooked traditional dinner. Turn on our cozy fireplace and enjoy your food with the Green Mountains outside the windows as the perfect backdrop.


  • Or many local restaurants usually feature a special classic Thanksgiving meal, buffets, or switch it up and head to get sushi! There are so many options in Stowe for dining on this meal-based holiday.
