Fall in the Village of Stowe, Vermont!

14 Comments

I have always wanted to visit the New England region during fall season and this year round I got an opportunity to do so. Vermont is one of the six states in the New England region located north of Boston at a distance of about 200 miles which is about 4 hours of drive. Surrounded by hilly mountains and abundant forests, Vermont is a beautiful place to visit during the foliage. As we reached closer to the hills of Vermont we could spot horses, cows and little picturesque barns along the way.

We reached Vermont later during the day as the sun was setting. Our Stowe Mountain Lodge seemed just right to soak the cozy vibes of the little village of Stowe. Our first day was pretty much low key. We spent time walking around for a bit exploring the resort property. We then returned to the resort restaurant Solstice for dinner where we really enjoyed creamy tomato soup and cheese raviolis. The restaurant overlooked strings of lights outdoor in a back drop of wonderful fall décor. All I remember is it seemed to be a perfect fall night.

Next day we were all set to explore the Village of Stowe. Our hotel concierge was very helpful and suggested us the Gondola and bike rides. We started our day hoping into one of the Gondolas right next to our resort. The Gondola ride was up to the Mount Mansfield which is the highest peak in Vermont at about 4395 feet. As we went up in the Gondola, we could clearly see the spectacular foliage along the way. All we could see was vast stretches of crimson orange forests. From the top the view was beautiful and the other visitors also chose to have lunch in the Cliff House Restaurant.

Once we returned from the mountain top, we made our way to rent bike and explore the Stowe recreation path which is a 5.5 mile preserved pathway for over 80 years and is known as one of the Vermont’s heritage. As we started our bike ride at Mountain ops sports gear, we rode along winding pathways into the unbelievably beautifully woods painted yellow and orange. We crossed 9 arched wooden bridges over the south branch river to make our way to the community church in the village of Stowe. We biked along long stretches of corn meadows. There was a huge sense of fulfillment biking in the paved pathways with colorful trees on both sides and making way to our destination. It was the best thing we did in Vermont. Almost all the pictures I have posted here is from the Stowe Recreation path.

Visiting Vermont during this time of the year was like a dream come true to me. I would really recommend this trip to anyone who wants to experience the true colors of fall. Which is your favorite fall city. Do share, I would love to read!

  1. I will certainly pick up Stowe recreation path with beautiful woods. I guess it offers lots of photography opportunity too.

  2. I wish we had fall here. It’s been 100 degrees the last 3 days here in southern California.

  3. Yay, you went to the place we explored last year during peak of fall. I simple loved Stowe – the best place for fall colors i have been to yet.

    We took that Gondola also and spent quite some time up there, even though it was all frozen at the summit.
