Stowe Recreation Path

Between the West Branch River and Route 108 is a biking trail full of scenic vistas and small town atmosphere.

Reviewed By Turkish340

Rent some good bikes and do it. Did it with family, youngest is 10. No probkem at all as the entire path is pretty much flat and paved so it is really easy to ride. Beautiful scenery all the way through, and some really magical spots to stop and admire the area.

Reviewed By Voyage816831

My husband and I live in southeast Georgia and wanted to go some place beautiful and snowy to celebrate my 60th birthday! Stowe was the perfect choice and Snowmobile Stowe was the highlight! The weather was cold and sunny and could not have been more perfect! In fact, everything was perfect from my initial phone call to schedule, all the way to the end of the back country tour. Our guide, Eli, was so professional, fun, and kind! I only wish the tour would have lasted the entire day! We also enjoyed the pooches, Lil Bit and Lucy! Thanks y’all. We’ll be back!

Elmore State Park

Reviewed By Anja98ac

Wonderful trail up to the fire tower, narrow and steep trails, like walking in a fairytale forest, expecting hobbits to come out of the trees at any time. So beautiful. Walked the trail with my husband on a Wednesday morning, never saw anyone else. We had the entire forest to ourselves - what luxury! The stillness and the beauty was marvellous. Absolutely recommend this trail. I’d also recommend using proper hiking gear, as there are climbs requiring some good footwear.

Nebraska Knoll Sugar Farm

Reviewed By RobertH717 - Ottawa, Canada

We drove here on a rainy day in January. We met Audrey the owner who gave us some great background on the syrup production process and we tasted the different grades (lighter delicate flavour and darker stronger flavour) of syrup. Hands down best maple syrup I ever had and we bought some of each type to bring home. Highly recommend a visit here, lovely people and a great product.

Could use a few more shops and restaurants on property but overall just a perfect hotel. Rooms are really REALLY pretty. The outdoor ice skating rink was magical. Very organized for a large hotel.
