Charming home perfectly located in Stowe village now available for rental. Stowe Village's oldest home, 'The Wright House' was built in 1811 and has been tastefully restored and updated to serve as a comfortable family home with two bedrooms and two full baths. The home retains much of its original charm with its wide plank flooring yet adds modern touches such as updated kitchen, gas fireplace, wireless internet access, and HD Cable TV. Excellent location for skiers and non-skiers alike, with ALL village amenities within walking distance including the free Mountain Road Shuttle. The property overlooks the historic Green Mountain Inn & the Vermont Ski & Snowboard Museum. The spacious downstairs includes eat-in kitchen, dining room, two separate living areas, and a full bath. Two bedrooms upstairs share a large bathroom with claw foot bath tub/shower. Master bedroom includes a queen bed and walk in closet and second bedroom has two 'extra long' twin beds and child gate for the door.

Canoeing & Kayaking:

The beautiful lakes and rivers of the Green Mountains are best enjoyed from a canoe or kayak. If you don’t have much experience, the American Canoe Association has certified guides that can take you out and show the skills necessary to enjoy a day out on the water.

Within a short distance of Stowe lie many great rivers and peaceful lakes. The Lamoille and Winooski rivers wind through farms and forested countryside and offer excellent river trips. Lake Elmore is easily accessible and features a state campground and beach, and the Green River Reservoir is a pristine and undeveloped area, good for getting away from it all.

The following companies offer canoe and kayak rentals and trips:

AJ's Ski & Sports

Umiak Outfitters

Pinnacle Ski & Sports

Fishing:

Anglers from novice to expert will enjoy the fishing in the Stowe area. To find the best spots, hire a local guide and your sure to hook into some big fish. The local waters hold healthy populations of trout, bass and pike

The Lamoille and Winooski Rivers are two of the more popular trout fisheries close to Stowe. The best times to visit are early summer and then again in the fall when the fish are beefing up for the winter. The smaller rivers in the area is where you’ll find some native brook trout, a small beautiful fish that thrives in the mountain waters.

If it’s bass you are interested in, check out one of the many lakes and reservoirs scattered throughout the area.

The staff at Catamount Fishing Adventures is very knowledgeable and offers guided tours as well as condition reports on their website.

Biking & Hiking:

Cottonbrook, Old Country Road, Stowe Hollow and Brownsville are some of the popular mountain biking trails in the area. They are maintained by the Stowe Mountain Bike Club. Several local bike shops offer guided tours to help you get out and explore the trails.

A mellower option which is good for families is to ride the Recreation Path as it wanders through forests and meadows beside the West Branch River. You can stop to shop & eat along the way when you need a break.

Hiking:

From mellow walks to soaring peaks, there are trails for hikers of all abilities around Stowe.

Weissner Woods is a 80 acres of land that has been preserved in its natural state for all to enjoy. Wildlife commonly seen in Wiessner Woods include partridge, thrush, grouse, falcons, and owls, as well as deer, fox, and an occasional bear or moose.

You can travel a section of the Long Trail to the Summit of Mount Mansfield, the highest peak in Vermont at at 4395’. Expect steep sections and incredible views from the top!

The Wright house is very clean and has anything you would want in a vacation getaway including wireless Internet. It is right in downtown Stowe with walking distances to shops, restaurants, and bars. As a skier it is ideal and only minutes away from Stowe mountain resort. Will come back every year to enjoy this perfect Vermont getaway!

Charming place in Stowe

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in the Wright house for 4 nights. We had a great time and the cottage was well stocked and clean. I was surprised as a cook how well the kitchen was stocked along with the quality. We liked that you could walk anywhere downtown easily. The only reason this did not score a 5 is the upstairs tub is not friendly, especially if you are tall. The TV room is in the area with the pull out couch so if you have more than 4 people it makes it difficult...maybe put the big TV in the living room. Other than that it was perfect and would rent again if we come back to Stowe.

Stowe, being a 200-year-old picturesque New England village, has drawn people over the years to vacation amongst its fantastic ski slopes and imposing Green Mountains. The amount of year round activities available is endless, yet, if preferred, one can sit back and relax in the rustic natural beauty of the countryside. Stowe was recently ranked number one for skiing in Eastern North America by both Ski and Skiing Magazines and has continued to maintain its renowned low key reputation as a hide-out for vacationing celebrities and leaders of industry.

Throughout the year Stowe hosts many festivals / events including classical music in the meadow, winter carnival, horse shows, the hot air balloon festival, antique car shows, the British invasion, polo tournaments and antique shows. This lively resort has a plethora of fine dining and night spots for all to enjoy. If you have never had the chance to experience Stowe, we would love the opportunity to introduce you to this American classic.

Other Activities: Alpine Slide, Birding, Canoeing/Kayaking, Carriage & Wagon Rides, Dogsledding, Glider Planes, Gondola, Hot Air Balloon, Mountain Auto Road, Wineries

Golf: Golf in the Green Mountains of Vermont just doesn't get any better.

Stowe Mountain Club

This is the course that has caught the attention of the golfing world. Stowe Mountain Club, recognized by Golf Magazine as one of the “Top 10 new courses you can play,” meanders along the slopes of Mount Mansfield and Spruce Peak , reaching an elevation of more than 1,800 feet. It is this dramatic setting that has caused course designer Bob Cupp to remark, “Once every few decades, a spectacular sight for golf appears. Such is the case at the foot of Mount Mansfield in Vermont . There may be no finer collection of short par fours anywhere in America .” Welcome to a golf experience as spectacular as its setting.

Stowe Country Club

The Stowe Country Club offers players a tour through the rich history of golf in Vermont . Located on a turn-of-the-century dairy farm, its clubhouse residing in the original brick farmhouse, this 6,200-yard layout will test the skill of any player. The 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains, the long temperate summer days, and the feeling that everything is going your way makes each shot a memory to cherish. This is also the home of the Vermont Golf Academy , which offers a variety of instructional sessions designed to polish every aspect of your game.

A little further away, the Ryder Brook Golf Club is a challenging 9-hole course with a full pro shop and driving range.

Within an hour of town you will find over twelve more excellent courses.

Ski: While Stowe is rightfully known as the Ski Capital of the East, there are a host of winter activities to choose from. The combination of magnificent Mount Mansfield and the old world charm of Stowe Village has beckoned guests to our mountain retreat for over 200 years. With an average snowfall of 22 feet, Stowe is typically blanketed in white from mid-November through April.

Mt. Mansfield is Vermont’s highest peak (4395') and offers a wide range of terrain for every ability level. It’s well-known for the double-black diamond “Front Four” trails, but also offers some of the longest intermediate cruisers in the East, and a lovely group of beginner trails in the Toll House area. Spruce Peak is geared toward beginner and intermediate skiers and riders. Trip the night fantastic, and carve down the slopes of Mt. Mansfield under a canopy of stars.

Whether you’re interested in fine wine or big air, Stowe delivers. It’s a multi-dimensional community with many interesting personalities.
