Things to do
Arbortrek Canopy Adventures
Get ready to soar through the forests and explore the wilds of the Green Mountains of Vermont as you ride up to 4,500 feet of zip lines, cross sky bridges high above the forest floor, and rappel from trees. Nestled in a scenic valley below Smugglers Notch, the zip line canopy tour is designed to provide access to reaches of the forest canopy and views of the area otherwise not available to hikers and explorers
Biking from the Inn
Guests of the inn have direct access to Stowe’s 5.3 mile (8.5 km) award winning paved recreation path. The path starts at the inn, winds its way through forests and meadows, crosses the West Branch River 11 times on arched wooden bridges, and eventually ends at the Stowe Village, with easy access to Main St. Along the way are numerous shops, lodges, and restaurants all most accessible from the path. The inn has a selection of bicycles for our guests use. However, If we don’t have what your looking for, the folks at the Nordic Barn Bike Rentals located just next-door will have the perfect bike for you!
Stowe is one of the top mountain bike destinations in New England, The Boston Globe named it “mountain biking mecca”. Stowe has a large network of trails that are fun and challenging for every ability.
Canoeing & Kayaking
There is no better way to see Vermont's breathtaking landscape than from a canoe or kayak. Before a road system was developed in our area, the Native Americans used the rivers as a major mode of transportation. You, too can experience the freedom and beauty that they did, as you paddle downstream on the Lamoille and Winooski Rivers.
