STOWE RESORT ACTIVITIES

Enjoy the Diversity of On-Property Activities & Adventures

Begin your Stowe, Vermont adventure on our 120-acre wooded estate. At Topnotch Resort, the luxury of choice extends to our resort activities. Choose an invigorating trail ride, or a friendly game of shuffleboard. A spirited tennis match, or a book and nothing but time to read it. A spa day or a craft beer sampling. A pool-side chaise or a biking excursion down the Rec Path. Four seasons a year, there is quite simply, so much to do at our four-diamond New England resort, right on property. We welcome you to do as much – or as little – of it as you like.

Equestrian Center

Vermont looks especially beautiful on horseback. The equestrian center located on the grounds of Topnotch Resort offers trail rides. Little ones love the corralled pony rides. Or take the entire family for a carriage ride, complements of our giant draft horses. When the snow flies, we offer sleigh rides through the Stowe, Vermont countryside, complete with warm blankets and jingle bells.
