Stowe Fall Activities

If you are looking for the perfect place to view and enjoy the spectacular fall foliage that Vermont is famous for, look no further than the vistas from the back yard of the Green Mountain Inn. It is impossible to predict exactly when the season will illuminate the surrounding scenery with it’s amazing colors; temperature, sun and rainfall all play a part in the timing of its peak, a little different from year to year. It is the subject of endless speculation with the area locals. As a general rule, the last week in September and the first two weeks of October are the ideal times to see natures wonders; with some isolated colors both before and after.
