Finding romance in our mountain town
The ideal romantic getaway might mean different things to different people. However, the common denominator might have something to do with beautiful and peaceful surroundings, warmth and a feeling of closeness. There is no shortage of romantic opportunities in Stowe, Vermont as you can see from our “February Top Picks list” this month.
The town of Stowe, Vermont provides an idyllic backdrop for creating those romantic moments and memories. The landscapes and views take your breath away in every season. Taking in the view from our favorite mountain top, Mount Mansfield, after a long hike with a loved one creates a shared experience that you may have only ever had with that person. Connection is what romance is all about.
Those same beautiful surroundings provide the perfect location when you want to turn romance into something official. Stowe has hosted thousands of proposals and weddings over the years. We’ve seen proposals by the river on the Stowe Recreation path, while taking a break on the ski trail and even in the middle of the crosswalk in the center of the historic Stowe Village. Our favorite wedding planners, Jaclyn Watson and Nancy Jeffries-Dwyer, could give you endless suggestions on memorable weddings at the top of the mountain, by a river, on a farm, wild-flower covered fields, or a ballroom at one of many iconic hotels and resorts in Stowe.
Whether or not you are ready to take that big step, it’s really the small moments that make the biggest difference. If you ask us for the ideal romantic day as a couple, it would look like this: We would hit the mountain for early ski turns. Then we would trade our ski gear for bathing suits and move over to the Spa at Spruce Peak for a hot soak or steam. The day would end with dinner for two and a toast by a crackling fire celebrating our time together.
