The Stowe Motel & Snowdrift is a motel located nearby the center of Stowe, a short drive away from Mount Mansfield. It’s a great option for guests looking for an affordable and clean stay in between days at the slopes without any frills. With a wide variety of room options, including standard rooms, efficiencies with kitchenettes and fireplaces, apartments, suites, and houses, there’s an accommodation for every preference.
While the motel doesn’t have a fitness center or swimming pool open in the winter, guests looking to get active can take advantage of their free snowshoe rental and take a hike on the paths around the motel or ride the shuttle up to Stowe Mountain Resort for a day of skiing. The shuttle is a quick walk from the motel, or guests that prefer to drive can make the quick 5-mile drive up the mountain. Also offered at the motel are bikes available to rent, perfect for days when the weather is nice and travelers want to enjoy a quick ride into town. For runners, Stowe’s recreational path is located nearby for a scenic outdoor run, or for guests with pets to take their dogs for a walk.
One perk to staying at the motel over the weekend is the Stowe Farmer’s Market, located on the Snowdrift property every Sunday from 9am to 3pm. While it makes traffic heavy on Sundays, it’s a great opportunity to pick up some locally grown produce and other goods. The motel is also a short walk from multiple dining options, the spa at Stoweflake Resort, and a ski and sports store.
