I launched Stowe Patrol in late 2008 after leaving Spruce Peak at Stowe Mountain Resort as its Marketing Manager. Stowe Patrol's mission was, and still is, to blog about everything Stowe from 3 different perspectives: first, and as the name suggests, as my now eleven years as a ski patroller at the Resort; second, as a local-area resident; and, third, as a Stowe-based Realtor®. I'd be glad to have you as a reader and visitor, and I welcome your comments.
This past Tuesday evening, Spruce Peak at Stowe, Stowe Mountain Resort, and Chittenden Bank hosted the Lamoille Area Board of Realtors annual holiday reception at Stowe Mountain Lodge. It was held in #506, one of the Front Four Private Residence Club 4-bedroom fractionals – a 2-story, at about 3,200 square feet, spacious home away from home! Hors d'oevres, created by Lodge executive chef Sean Buchanan, came from his Solstice kitchen included duck and salmon canapés, a tasty assortment of cheeses, and shrimp cocktail with several dipping sauces from which to choose, including simple horseradish.
As much fun as 50 or more realtors can have at a party, the real surprise presented itself when, upon leaving, we found a party, going full-swing, in the lobby, with crackling fires in its 2 massive fireplaces. It was straight out of the 1954 Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Dean Jagger classic, "White Christmas!" The lobby was overflowing with guests listening to and singing Christmas carols accompanied by a talented player at the lobby piano. The scene and the sounds were captivating – we really didn't want to leave. Here are a few iPhone photos that don't begin to do the evening justice:
