Stowe in the summer

I am looking for a nice 5 day summer trip with my husband and 2 daughters ages 8 and 12. Last summer we visited Lake Placid and really enjoyed it. Is there enough to keep us busy in Stowe in August? Also, we wanted a high end resort- which is nicer and has more to do- Top Notch, Trapp or Stowe Mountain resort? Thanks!

There's plenty to do in and around Stowe to keep you busy for 5 days. Do a few searches in the vermont forum for 'stowe activities' or 'stowe things to do' and you'll get lots of info.

You will find more to see and do in Stowe than you found in Lake Placid, so no worries there.

Regarding your 3 resorts, the "highest end" resort, and also the newest, is Stowe Mountain Lodge. Personally, I'd pick that vs. Topnotch or Trapp, as long as you don't mind the big price tag.

There is a lot to do in Stowe. You can also visit http://www.gostowe.com/

Trapp Family Lodge would be very good choice with a wonderful hill view.

Probably, there will be some annual events when you there too.

best wishes.

More than enough for you to do. Do a thorough search and you will come up with many things. Stowe is a good base. You can easily travel a good share of VT from there without it taking hours. I envy your trip. We love it there.
