Commodores Inn in StoweEven though back-to-school thoughts are foremost in your mind, there is still quite a bit of summer left here in Vermont.  If you find you really need a chance to relax before fall gets into full swing, plan your getaway now.  A perfect choice for the whole family (or a group of friends) is the Commodores Inn in Stowe.  Prices are reasonable, on-site and nearby activities abundant, and hospitality is first-rate.

Commodores Inn in StoweBy visiting in the summer, you may discover why an inn located in the mountains of Vermont has a nautical name.  Head to the inn’s 3 ½ acre lake and you might see the Stowe Yacht Club practicing for an upcoming regatta.  Regattas in Vermont?  Yes, if the boats are remote-controlled replicas of 12-meter racing yachts.  And, by the way, the inn’s owner is a national champion in model boat racing.

The lake is stocked and waiting for you.  In addition, there is open country with trails galore for hiking and mountain biking.  If you’ve been to Stowe for skiing, you might enjoy a hike to the summit of Mount Mansfield to see Stowe from a totally new viewpoint.

Commodores Inn in StoweFamilies love the fact that there is both an indoor and outdoor pool to amuse the kids – rain or shine.  Plus you’ll find nearby miniature golf.  The adventuresome adults and kids alike will thrill to the Alpine Slide, Bungee Trampoline, Gondola Sky Ride, Climbing Wall, and Obstacle Course at Stowe Mountain Resort.

If being outdoors for you has to include some golf, you’ll find multiple choices within a reasonable distance.  The Vermont landscape makes for some interesting and challenging golf holes – the source for some great golf tales once you return home.

Commodores Inn in StoweFor breakfast and dinner, the Commodores Inn Lighthouse Bar & Grill is certainly convenient and the menu comprehensive enough to please the pickiest eater.  For a quick bite or refreshing libation, check out the Commodores Sports Lounge. (Send the kids to the game room with ping pong and other games while you take a much needed rest in the lounge.) Plus you have the extensive selection of dining options available throughout Stowe.

Commodores Inn in StoweThroughout the year, Vermont offers special fairs and festivals to celebrate the season.  For example, you might enjoy the Stowe Wine and Food Classic on August 27.  Or perhaps the Stowe Jazz Festival on September 8 is more to your liking.  For a complete list of events, check out the Vermont.com Calendar of Events.
