Second Annual Stowe Changes Report

In an efforts to keep you informed on what it’s like to live in Stowe, Vt., here’s our Second Annual Stowe Changes Report.

Stowebee Bakery special occasion cupcakesStowebee Bakery

Located across the street from People’s United Bank, this bistro-bakery-sandwich shop has it going on. Coffee however you want it, sweets for all, local and organic ingredients, seasonal lunch fare, and lots of honey. Thus, Stowebee. Easy parking!

The Butchery sandwichThe Butchery

Get your protein here! Organic chicken and turkey, ground beef and whey-fed pork, scallops, pork belly, duck, lamb, stakes, rib eyes, and seafood. The Butchery is committed to quality and ordering what patrons want. I, for one, want a rack of lamb! Located on at 504 Mountain Road.

Stowe Seafood fresh clamsStowe Seafood

A long-time Stowe favorite for fresh seafood, meats, and groceries, Stowe Seafood has moved to 394 Mountain Road, next to The Bagel.  They make weekly trips to the Boston Pier to bring the best of the ocean home to Stowe.

Edgewater Gallery exhibitsEdgewater Gallery

This new gallery, located on Main Street in Stowe in the old site of the Stowe Hardware Store, is home to contemporary and fine art paintings, sculptures, pottery, and jewelry by artisans from Vermont and beyond.

Tres Amigos margaritaTres Amigos

After a few years without a Mexican restaurant, Tres Amigos is filling that need, and is also filling the space the former spot of Stowe’s iconic nightspot, the Rusty Nail. It was sold to Chad Fry and Mark Frier, the dynamic duo behind Waterbury’s Reservoir restaurant and The Bench in Stowe. With names like that, how can you lose? You’re either the Fry or the Frier. From apps to empanadas to custom-made margs, you’ll get your Mexican fix here.


Anyone who comes to Stowe to ski knows there’s a parking problem at the ski area. Hopefully that will be resolved by the time the snow flies. Expect to find additional parking at the Mount Mansfield Cross-Country Ski Center, or better yet, leave your car in town and take the shuttle.

Cady Hill Forest

If you’re coming to Stowe for some winter mountain biking, you won’t be able to ride at Cady Hill Forest. November’s wind storm devastated the trail system, with hundreds of trees uprooted or snapped off 10 feet above ground. The trails are closed, but work has begun to restore the popular network. For more information on the clean-up progress and to volunteer any help, physical or financial, visit the Cady Hill Forest website page at

So there you have it. You are now up-to-speed on the latest changes in Stowe, thanks to our Second Annual Stowe Changes Report. When you’re ready to move here and want to buy a house, or of you looking to sell your Stowe home, contact me, I will bring my best to the table.
