Enjoy a Weekend in Stowe Vermont at the Spruce Peak Lodge

You don’t have to have several weeks of free time to make the most of a Stowe, Vermont getaway. While an extended adventure here is always a treat, travelers with a weekend to spare will find there’s plenty to enjoy that leaves them feeling refreshed after three days of fun. When you’re ready to make the most of every moment, this itinerary for a weekend in Stowe Vermont has you staying at the Spruce Peak Lodge and enjoying time out and about across scenic Stowe in good company.

Day 1

After a hearty breakfast enjoyed in your welcoming vacation rental booked through Stowe Mountain Rentals at the Spruce Peak Lodge, you’ll be heading out on a hiking adventure that’s one-of-a-kind. When you stay here, you can easily customize a day out on the trails alongside Spruce Peak Outfitters. Whether you’re looking to enjoy a private hike or a group adventure, Spruce Peak Outfitters is happy accommodate. Alongside your expert guide, you’ll explore beautiful nature trails, enjoy wildlife watching, and savor the scenery at a preferred pace.

When you return to the Spruce Peak Lodge, take some time to unwind after all of that trekking with a cool down in the on-site pool. Open daily from 9:00 am until 10:00 pm, this is a great place to relax your muscles and soak in the sunshine. Of course, if you’re looking for even more activity, you might just find you’re right on time for a water aerobics class! There are also two hot tubs near the pool for those who are hoping to enjoy even more restorative moments after time out in nature.

Tonight, treat yourself to dinner at The Roost located at 4000 Mountain Road. This eatery is open until 9:00 pm each night of the week and is a great place to pair American classic dishes with cocktails, wine, or beer in an elegant yet welcoming space.

Day 2

The second day of your weekend trip to Vermont has you heading out to open water to cast a line after breakfast. Stowe is a terrific place for anglers to enjoy and the waters here host more than 90 species of fish. Whether you’re on the hunt for trout or walleye, you’ll find reeling in something exciting is a good way to start the day. There are many waterways to choose from around Stowe and the Spruce Peak Lodge but if you prefer to head out with a guide who can show you the ropes, Spruce Peak Outfitters offers this service upon request. If you’re ready to head out on your own and just need to stock up on gear, make your way to The Fly Rod Shop where they also offer instructional classes.

After fishing, it’s time to freshen up and head off to enjoy a brew tour of Stowe. In total, Vermont is home to over 60 breweries and counting. Stowe is certainly a place where you can count on easy access to microbrew beer and cider, but if you want to be sure you’re hitting up all the best spots in town, this afternoon is best spent alongside the team over at Savor Vermont Tours. They’ll happily drive you to top destinations in the area utilizing a pre-set itinerary and offer up insightful information on the production process in between savory sips.

This evening, you’ll balance out your beverages with a mouthwatering meal at The Bench. Found at 492 Mountain Road, this eatery offers up a robust menu of options ranging from ribs and wood-fired pizza as well as Cubano’s featuring mustard, ham, and Swiss combinations. Don’t leave without at least trying their Buffalo mac n’ cheese.

Day 3

The final day of your weekend trip to Vermont has you heading out to enjoy kayaking and canoeing. A stay at the Spruce Peak Lodge means you’re never far from the tranquil Lamoille River which winds its way through Green Mountains towards Lake Champlain. Umiak Outdoor Outfitters is a one-stop resource for kayaking and canoeing tours on the river that are custom-designed to meet your needs and traveling crew. To make the experience even more meaningful, be sure to book a tour that infuses wildlife watching into your paddling.

Once you’re back on land, it’s time to head over to the Mountain Course at Spruce Peak and enjoy a round of golf with family and friends. Here, you’ll find amazing views and challenging terrain waiting to be tackled utilizing your best short and long-game skills. The course sits at an elevation of 1,800 feet and is a scenic place that just might keep you around for a second game when the first comes to an end.

End your weekend in Stowe Vermont at Harrison’s Restaurant at 25 Main Street. This quintessential Vermont eatery serves up options like fried duck wings and wasabi-encrusted salmon in a space that’s adorned with warm wood beam ceilings and a brick fireplace. It’s as cozy and welcoming as it is tasty, topping off your trip in ideal style.
