The Green Mountain Inn is a great place to stay
with your skiing family. It’s historical, the first Inn in Stowe
Vermont, dating back to 1833. It’s conveniently located on Main
Street in Stowe Village so you can walk to shops, restaurants, even
the Vermont Ski Museum. And it’s a full service resort, despites the
name as an Inn. The Green Mountain Inn has two excellent restaurants, a health
club with outdoor heated pool and Jacuzzi, a Game Room and family
activities for the kids, and spacious suite lodging.
The Green Mountain Inn is just a 10 minute drive up the Mountain Road to Stowe Mountain Resort and the ski slopes. The Green Mountain Inn ski and stay packages includes lift tickets for direct to lift access, at a savings over daily Stowe lift tickets. And when you return to the Inn after your day on Stowe’s slopes, the kids will love that complimentary cookies await them. Mom and Dad will love après ski beverages at The Whip, the popular pub downstairs at the Inn. The Whip is also a great place to take the family to dinner with an extensive menu ranging from Vermont cheddar burgers to Duck and Veal – the chef uses all locally raised beef, game, produce and cheese in his preparations in the dynamic open-concept kitchen. Sit by the kitchen or by the cozy fireplace for a fun night at the Whip.
The Green Mountain Inn has over 100 guest rooms ranging from traditional, romantic rooms with canopy beds in the Inn, to luxury suites in newly constructed townhouses located behind the classic red Inn. These luxury suites offer common living rooms where families can gather, and the suites are spacious with separate sleeping arrangements for the kids. Most of the suites have fireplaces and Jacuzzis, plus all the latest amenities from TVs and Wifi to spa-like private bathrooms.
The Green Mountain Inn will introduce your kids to a bit of Stowe skiing history – the hallways are lined with old photographs of the first hotel on Mt Mansfield, called the Summit Hotel, and the first skiing on the legendary Front Four back in the 1920’s and 30’s. A visit to the next door Vermont Ski Museum will teach them even more about the evolution of skiing in Vermont. A stop at Cabot Creamery for some cheddar cheese and a Ben & Jerry’s Factory Tour with ice cream, and the kids will be hollering for more ski trips to Stowe.
