Best Time To Visit

Best Time To Visit

Assuming you are not afraid of snow, there is no bad time to visit Stowe. 

Many are drawn to the stunning fall foliage. That means it can get crowded. But look for deals on lodging and more. If you don’t mind a nip in the air (nighttime temps hover around freezing), you’ll appreciate why this is a favorite destination for leaf peepers. 

Summer offers pleasant hiking weather topping out in the 60s (Fahrenheit). Cool enough for even four-legged hikers in fur. 


Things Not To Miss

Downtown Stowe offers pet friendly, summertime dining on several patios. And a few stores even welcome polite pups indoors. 

If you arrive during the summer or early fall, don’t miss a ride up the mountain on the gondola. You’ll love the view. And your pup will be glad for a chance to doze after exploring the many area hiking trails. 

If you stroll the Stowe Recreation Way, your water-loving buddy can cool off in the river along the way. 

The only question about vacationing in Stowe is who will enjoy it more—you or your pet.
