Top Things to Do For the Perfect Summer Vacation in Stowe

Stowe’s variety of offerings for families, friend groups, and even corporate retreats tend to attract visitors all year round, but the summertime is especially popular. With great weather, special events, and access to even more outdoor adventures, you can’t go wrong with a summer stay in this charming Vermont town while staying at Meadowstone Manor.
These are some of the top things to do to make the most of your summer vacation in Stowe:


Stowe has plenty of hiking trails to explore from beginner friendly routes to more challenging feats like summiting Mt. Mansfeld, Vermont’s highest peak. Other popular trails in the area include Camel’s Hump and Sterling Falls Gorge.


If you’d rather get around on two wheels, Stowe is also home to over 50 miles of mountain biking trails. For a less strenuous experience, try road cycling on the Stowe Recreation Path, which is perfect for families.

Paddling and Swimming

The hotter temperatures of summer make it a perfect time to explore Stowe’s waterways by renting a boat, canoe, kayak or stand up paddleboard. And when it gets a bit too hot, you can go for an invigorating swim in one of the lakes, swimming holes, or waterfalls.

Brewery Tours

Nothing is better than a cold refreshing beer on a hot summer day. Luckily, Stowe has a buzzing craft beer scene with breweries like the von Trapp Brewery & Bierhall and Idletyme Brewing Co. and cideries like the Cold Hollow Cider Mill, which is a family friendly spot to spend the day.

Gondola Skyride

When the snow has melted away from Stowe Mountain Resort, travelers can still hop on the Gondola Skyride to enjoy panoramic views of the mountains. At the top, they’ll have access to hiking trails, restaurants, shops, and more.
