Whether you've been coming to Stowe for years or you've just discovered America's most storied ski destination, nothing compares to vacationing at Stowe. And, there's never been a better time to make it your four-season vacation home. It's a natural choice for home ownership. And, it's a fast, easy getaway from the major cities of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.
Long before there was skiing, Mount Mansfield was a tourist destination. In 1858, entrepreneur William H.H. Bingham built a grand hotel, the Summit House, atop Vermont's highest peak. Some of the most influential people in history were among its guests, including the Roosevelts, Vanderbilts, and Rothschilds.
With the advent of American skiing — founded by visionary men right here at Stowe - winter tourism put Stowe on the global map. And ever since the 1930s, locals and visitors alike have enjoyed a true mountain experience among these peaks.
Today, the Stowe citizens — just as they have done since 1797 — attend town meetings and work hard to preserve the character and heritage of this mountain community — one steeped in history and beauty ... and poised to keep it.
