Visitors can rent vehicles from one of several companies at Burlington International Airport (BTV) in South Burlington, and Morrisville-Stowe State Airport (MVL) in Morrisville. Public transportation is provided in town via Green Mountain Transit (GMT). In winter and early spring, guests can take GMT's free Mountain Road Shuttle from Stowe Village to Stowe Mountain Resort. In the warmer months, bicycles are a great option for shorter distances. Stowe also has fantastic mountain biking trails, hiking trails, and walking paths. Peg's Pick-Up Stowe Taxi and Uber are also available for taxi services in/around Stowe.
Feel free to contact me anytime during your stay. In the case of an emergency, please contact 911 for immediate assistance. If there is an issue re: the home, property, or technology, our Property Management company and/or any related service providers will take care of it as soon as possible.
Free private parking in driveway, up to 3 vehicles. Guests are encouraged to get outside and explore all that beautiful Stowe has to offer. In the winter, the driveway and walkway will be professionally plowed and shoveled (and sanded as needed). Our driveway has an incline, so drive only on the gravel and proceed with caution. Our neighborhood has privately maintained roadways, so be advised that weather can affect driving conditions (roads can get bumpy, slippery, or icy).
