Stowe Family Vacation Journey to the Spruce Peak Lodge

Spending time away from the to-do list and enjoying a great vacation is always a treat. When you’re fortunate enough to have that time alongside those you love most, it’s even more meaningful. This year, when you’re looking for a place to book a family friendly getaway, Stowe, Vermont is calling your name. At Stowe Mountain Rentals, we have the Spruce Peak Lodge accommodations you need to elevate your Stowe family vacation this way in luxury, comfort, and style. When you have three days to spare in the name of fun with your traveling crew, the following itinerary is the perfect place to start.

Day 1

The first day of your Stowe stay at The Lodge at Spruce Peak begins with time set aside to explore the scenic Stowe Bike Path after a hearty breakfast. This top-rated bike bath is ideal for cyclists of all ages and skill levels thanks to its well-maintained surfacing and route that runs from Stowe Village to the Top Notch Resort on Mountain Road. In total, the Stowe Bike Path runs 5.3 miles and there are plenty of places to stop along the way and enjoy views out over the Little River and mountains. It’s an easy way to access local eateries and shops as well when you want to slow things down, relish the moment, and savor the sights at your own preferred pace.

After a morning and early afternoon of cycling, there’s a good chance you’ll be looking for a family-friendly place to cool off. While you can always enjoy the pools at The Lodge at Spruce Peak, a hike to a natural swimming pool is worth your while as well. Set out on Mountain Road and travel 5.2 miles from Stowe Village to Notch Brook Road. You’ll turn right and travel for a quarter of a mile more to reach a path to a natural swimming hole that’s welcoming and refreshing!

Spend time splashing around and enjoying nature before returning to town to enjoy a dinner at Piecasso. This is a great pizza place that adults and kids in your group alike are sure to love. In addition to a great slice, the menu here also features pasta, sandwiches, burgers, salads, and small plates. Piecasso is located at 1899 Mountain Road and is open Friday and Saturday from 11:00 am until 10:00 pm and Sunday through Thursday from 11:00 am until 9:00 pm.

Day 2

The second day of your Stowe stay with an emphasis on family-friendly fun takes you to Cady Hill where you can enjoy mountain biking in the fresh air at its very best. Stowe has long been loved for its gorgeous terrain which lends itself seamlessly to prime mountain biking trails. Stowe hosts a vast network of well-maintained trails to check out around and beyond Cady Hill, where cyclists can try routes suitable for all skill levels. It’s a chance to enjoy the view, hone your skills, or simply spend some quality time outdoors in good company.

This afternoon, partner up with the team over at Mountain View Tours and enjoy a family-friendly outing that gives you better insight into all things Stowe. This company has been hosting comprehensive sightseeing outings for over 17 years and tours are designed to encourage visitors to look for off-the-beaten-path gems that make up this area. There are half- and full-day tours available to book as well as options to reserve your place on a private tour if you choose to. A touring van, coach or bus is included in the experience and tours can be conducted in either English or Spanish upon request.

Tonight, treat yourself to a savory dinner that everyone will love at Sushi Yoshi. From the lo mein noodles to the vast sushi selection, this is a place you can linger for much longer than you originally planned! You’ll get an authentic Asian culinary experience in a family-friendly setting with indoor and outdoor dining options available. There’s a children’s Hibachi menu available for added entertainment and for the adults in your crew, be sure to pair your plate with an Alchemist beer. Sushi Yoshi is located at 1128 Mountain Road and is open Thursday through Tuesday from 11:30 am until 10:00 pm.

Day 3

On the last day of your adventure, gather the family and head over to 454 Mountain Road to enjoy a delicious brunch at the Skinny Pancake. This fun and welcoming eatery is known for its locally sourced ingredients and delicious brunch options ranging from omelets and French toast to pancakes and coffee. There’s plenty of room for everyone to settle in and the service here is always friendly as well.

Next up is a gondola ride for stunning views over Mount Mansfield on day three. You can purchase a round trip ticket for enhanced panoramic views or make it a one-way ticket and give yourself time for a hike back down.

If you’re a family with a shared passion for time on the greens, ending your day with a round of golf at the Stowe Country Club is always a great option. Situated in the heart of Stowe Village, this farm-turned-golf course has beautiful fairways and meticulously manicured greens to enjoy. It’s a place that’s perfect for those looking for a challenge with rewarding views included.
