If you’re venturing this way for at least three days at a time, the following itinerary is designed to help you make the most of the fun!

Day 1

The first day of your Lodge at Spruce Peak stay will begin with some well-deserved time embracing adventure by mountain biking. Stowe has long been a world-class mountain biking destination and whether you’re new to the sport or you mountain bike your way through every summer, you’ll find the trails around the lodge are ideal for beginners and advanced cyclists alike. The terrain here is equally fun and challenging and mountain biking is a wonderful way to spend time with your loved ones when you’re in town this summer with the entire crew in tow. Local companies and lodge partners like the team at 4Points Vermont offer mountain biking lessons for newcomers while Spruce Peak Outfitters is more than happy to help you set up a customized guided outing on day one as well.

After a fun day on the mountain biking trails, feel free to cool off in the pool right at Spruce Peak Lodge. This luxurious space is a welcome area for guests to hang out, relax, and enjoy the water and fresh air at their own leisurely pace. In addition to the pool, you’ll have access to two hot tubs and a swim-out tunnel.

Tonight, head out into the Village of Stowe to dine at Grant’s, which is known and loved for the elevated comfort food they serve up as well as their unique and mouthwatering drink selection. You can settle in with family and friends and enjoy a delicious meal that might just have you lingering longer than you planned. The restaurant is open Wednesday through Saturday from 4:00 pm until 9:00 pm.

Day 2

The second day of your summer in Stowe getaway is focused on the hiking fun ahead. Stowe and the terrain surrounding The Lodge at Spruce Peak is a hiker’s dream come true with well-maintained trails that offer stunning views along the way. While a leisurely walk around the lodge is a lovely way to spend a morning or afternoon, more experienced hikers might want to set their sights on a challenging trek up Mount Mansfield. Spruce Peak Outfitters offers signature summer hike options to guests ranging from a stroll along the Spruce Loop that includes beer and wine stops to the Sterling hike which makes time for a picnic lunch on the way to Sterling Pond. There are even star gazing and full moon hikes to enjoy as well as guided trips up Mount Mansfield for those who are looking for a local pro to lead the way. If you want to tackle trails independently, spend the rest of day two exploring routes like the trail to Bingham Falls, the Hellbrook Trail, The Stowe Rec Path, or the Barnes Camp Boardwalk.

When your feet are tired of trekking, you’ve earned the opportunity to hop onboard the Stowe Mountain Resort Gondola and make the most of a relaxing view. No matter what direction you look from this gondola, your vantage point is prime. You’ll be carried seamlessly up to the summit of Mount Mansfield with options to linger at sunset if you like before heading back down.

This evening, make your way to Charlie B’s Pub & Restaurant which is a Stowe culinary staple you won’t want to miss. The cozy atmosphere is a delight thanks to a wood-burning fireplace. Guests can browse a menu featuring local Vermont fare as well as locally produced wines by the glass. They also have an impressive lineup of cocktails and craft beers here too. Count on live music at Charlie B’s Pub & Restaurant seasonally.

The last day of your journey takes you out on a beautiful summer drive along the Historic Toll Road.

In total, the road runs 4.5 miles and winds its way up to an impressive 3,850 feet in elevation. It’s open to travelers daily from 9:30 am until 4:30 pm between the end of May and October.

If you could use assistance with renting a kayak for the day or setting up a guided tour, the team over at Umiak is more than happy to help.
