Colorful Comfort and Pizza in Stowe, Vermont

Posted September 21, 2009 by Kate Hamman


If Vermont and fall foliage go together like pancakes and maple syrup, then Stowe is the griddle. Surrounded by mountains, Stowe captures the quintessential New England-town feel, with its white-steepled church and picture-perfect main street of local shops and eateries. During the winter, the snow-covered peaks of Mount Mansfield serve as a skier's playground, while people spend the rest of the year participating in other outdoor activities. However, fall is one of the best times, when the mountains burst into a rainbow of colors.

Stowe Mountain Resort: Most people come to this little town for the outdoor recreation, and Stowe Mountain Resort is typically their number one stop. Though you can enjoy downhill skiing on Mount Mansfield in the winter or golf at other times of the year, sometimes its best to just kick back and enjoy the view, especially when the leaves are changing in the fall.

Pie in the Sky: When it comes to pizza and funky atmosphere, Pie in the Sky is out of this world. Visitors and locals alike take joy in its extraterrestrial decorations, including planets hanging from the wall. All pizzas are cooked-to-order in a wood-burning oven, and come with a range of toppings from healthy to indulgent. The Blond Vermonter—olive oil-glazed crust topped with cheddar cheese, apples, and ham—is just one of the many pizzas to choose from. Pies start at $9.50 for create-your-own, and $14.50 for specialties. And if you don't like pizza, you can order baked pastas, sandwiches, or calzones.

Auberge de Stowe: If you're looking for a comfortable place to rest your aching muscles after a day outdoors, look no further than the Auberge de Stowe. Each of the eight rooms is decorated with cozy quilts and floral curtains, and include a continental breakfast to start your day off right. On Saturday nights, guests are encouraged to BYOB and join other travelers around the Franklin stove for story-swapping. Rooms start at $99 per night during high season.

The Trapp Family Lodge is a beautiful, intriguing, comfortable place with lovely mountain views and first class cross country ski trails. "A little bit of Austria, a lot of Vermont."
