Chartered in 1763, Stowe began as a farming community. Nestled between Mount Mansfield (Vermont's highest peak) and other western Green Mountain peaks, and the Worcestshire Range in the east, the scenery in this area is legend. From mid-May to mid-October, the drive from Stowe through Smugglers Notch is a must.
After the civil war, it became a summer tourist destination because of the spectacular scenery and cool climate. Skiing didn't begin to factor into the equation until 1933 when the first trails were cut by the Civilian Conservation Corps on Mount Mansfield. The first "lift", a rope tow, followed in 1937 and a chairlift in 1940. Stowe Mountain Resort enjoyed a major expansion in the late sixties, and with it came a gondola and a reputation as the "Ski Capital of the East". The original gondola was replaced with a new Poma gondola for the 1991-92 season and development continues today.
It was in the early 1940's that the von Trapp family settled here after fleeing the Nazi regime in Europe. They chose the area because it reminded them of their native Austria and opened the historic 27 room inn in 1950. After a devastating fire in 1980, the original Trapp Family Lodge structure was replaced with the gorgeous 96 room entity guests enjoy today.
A wide array of facillities are available to host the Stowe wedding of your dreams - from first class resorts like Top Notch Resort and Spa to intimate B & B's like the Stone Hill Inn, Stowe can accomodate Vermont wedding dreams of all sizes and budgets!
