Travel To Stowe Vermont - Ski Vacation Capital Of The East
by Catherine Olivia

Nothing says New England like a small white church with it's steeple rising in the air high above orange, yellow and red hued fall leaves beneath a sky so blue that you can actually feel the cripsness of the fall air. One of these most famous New England churches is the Stowe Community Church in the beautiful 200 plus year old town of Stowe Vermont.

Walking down Main Street in Stowe you will feel like you are back in time, and you won't be at a loss for shopping. Park the car and enjoy the old time ambiance as you stroll the quaint town center. You will find antique stores, ski shops, a clock and lamp shop, ice cream parlor, a book store, Vermont made furniture store, and a quilt shop, to name a few. There is even an old fashioned general store tucked behind the shops that sells New England mustards, those ever present maple syrup candies and any array of souvenirs you might need.

After enjoying a tour in the town of Stowe, you might want to spend the night in the fabulous Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa. The Stoweflake is a AAA Four-Diamond luxury resort. It boasts a 50,000 square foot spa, state-of-the-art fitness center and two award winning restaurants.

The Stoweflake offers a wide array of rooms, from standard guestrooms with 1 king or 2 double beds to their one- bedroom suites that include a living area, fireplace and jacuzzi tub with two separate vanity areas. For vacations with the family the Stoweflake offers townhouses for rent right behind the main hotel.

No vacation to the Stoweflake would be complete without being pampered by one of the many spa services offered by the Spa at Stoweflake. From traditional massages and facials, to treatments for men, to Eastern or Vermont bodywork the Spa at Stoweflake is a world renowned spa. The highlight of the Spa is the Aqua Solarium which has a hydrotherapy water falls and Hungarian mineral soaking pool to ease any tensions away.

Travel to Stowe any time of the year. You will find a variety of activities all year round. For a winter vacation with the family, the area of Stowe is known for cross-country skiing with the nation's largest cross country trail system. There are over 150 kilometers of groomed trails and 100 kilometers of back-country trails. For travelers looking for a downhill ski vacation, there is Mt. Mansfield for unsurpassed New England downhill skiing. The summit elevation is 4395 feet with a vertical drop of 2360. Mt. Mansfield offers skiing for all levels, beginner to expert.
