It is finally starting to feel like fall here in Boston! As you may know, I originally hail from Vermont, so I always plan at least two trips to my favorite Vermont town in the fall, Stowe!! I lived in Stowe while I was in college, so it holds a special place in my heart.
I wanted to share with you all a few must see’s while in Stowe. It is seriously the perfect place to visit in the fall if you want the full Vermont experience, it has something for everyone!
I am heading to Stowe this weekend (can’t wait, pictures and outfits to come!), so here is a list of my favorite places to go when I visit.
Stowe Mercantile, 166 S Main Street, Stowe
If you are looking for the most quaint, country store, look no further! Stowe Mercantile is the best country store. They have everything from maple syrup, local craft beer, souvenirs and more. There is also an adorable boutique upstairs that has affordable women’s clothing.
Green Envy, 1800 Mountain Road, Stowe
I worked at Green Envy when I was in college, so I may be a little biased, but they have the most gorgeous selection of women’s clothing. They are on the high-end price scale, but they carry more affordable lines as well. They have everything from Vince, Joie, premium denim from Mother, Citizens of Humanity, AG and more! They have an amazing selections of shoes and jewelry (some local Vermont jewelers as well).
Well Heeled, 2850 Mountain Road, Stowe
Well Heeled is your destination if you are looking for footwear, gorgeous accessories and they have an amazing selection of high end clothing as well. If you are around the area on a holiday weekend, you have to stop in for their amazing sales!
Plate, 91 Main Street, Stowe
Plate is hands-down my favorite restaurant in Stowe. It is situated right in the middle of the village of Stowe. It has options for everyone, including vegetarians and vegans. A must try is the banana pudding for dessert, it is served in a mason jar and is out of this world delicious!
The Bench, 492 Mountain Road, Stowe
If you are looking for comfort food and local craft beer, The Bench is your spot. Their duck fat fries and poutine are the best around. They have everything from pizza, sandwiches and salads. Top it off with Hill Farmstead Edward, my all time favorite beer!
McCarthy’s, 454 Mountain Road, Stowe
My favorite breakfast of all time. Their loaded home fries are just what you need after a night of craft beer. Tip: get there early and bring cash (they do not accept credit cards).
Gold Brook Covered Bridge, Covered Bridge Road, Stowe
If you want to get a covered bridge pic, stop by Gold Brook Covered Bridge, known by locals as Emily’s Covered Bridge (it is said to be haunted by a woman named Emily!). It is a picturesque Vermont covered bridge.
Alchemist Brewery, 100 Cottage Club Road, Stowe
Home to the legendary Heady Topper, the Alchemist offers brewery tours and tastings, get there early and expect lines, it got voted one of the best breweries in the world! But so worth the wait!
Lost Nation Brewery, 87 Creamery Road, Morrisville
Lost Nation has amazing beer, and amazing food. It is a great place for lunch or dinner. A few miles away from Stowe in nearby Morrisville, but so worth the drive.
Hike the Pinnacle, Pinnacle Heights Road, Stowe
If you are wanting to be active, and catch a great view of the beautiful green mountain state, hike the Stowe Pinnacle. It is a fairly easy hike and the trails are well marked. The view at the top is so worth the hike!
I hope you all enjoyed this post, and will consider stopping in Stowe if you are in Vermont! Get ready for stereotypical Vermont foliage pictures this weekend!
Have a great day!
