Hospitality Partners

Stowe Land Trust’s Hospitality Partners give guests an easy way to give back to Stowe, so that it will always remain a special place to visit. For every night’s stay with one of SLT's Hospitality Partners, a $1 donation goes to Stowe Land Trust. These voluntary donations are used to support SLT's work to conserve important natural resources in the Stowe area.  

We invite you to join the Hospitality Partners today. For more information, contact executive director Kristen Sharpless at or (802) 253-7221.

The Stowehof

The Stowehof is a classic Alpine hotel with a storied history unique to Stowe. No two rooms are identical – some are grand, some cozy, and many feature wide-open mountain views. You can play cards in one of their game nooks, shoot pool with friends, read a book by one of several fireplaces, roast marshmallows at the fire pit, stroll through the rolling meadows, and relax by the pool in the summer.

The Stowehof is next door to Wiessner Woods – a beloved community recreation area that was donated to Stowe Land Trust by the family of Fritz Wiessner, a world-famous mountaineer in 1992. Today, Wiessner’s legacy and spirit continue to be celebrated both at The Stowehof and its beloved ratskeller “Fritz Bar”, and in Wiessner Woods, whose trails are open to the public for hiking, snowshoeing and cross country skiing.
