Rolling hills and picturesque views make Stowe Hollow a special part of Stowe. The Hollow is located just outside of historic Stowe Village and is known for breathtaking vistas of Mt. Mansfield, Stowe Mountain Resort and open meadows. Here you’ll find some of Stowe’s most beautiful and sought after homes. Vacation home owners and full-time residents alike find Stowe Hollow a very desirable neighborhood because of it’s beautiful setting and close proximity to shops and restaurants.
One of the many highlights of this neighborhood is Grandview Farm, which has been a sheep farm, dairy farm and skier lodging. Today the farm and its pastures, which are protected as part of the Stowe Land Trust, have been restored to their original use of raising animals. The property’s iconic barn, which is over one hundred years old, along with 65 acres of land will remain undeveloped for future generations to enjoy.
Another Stowe Hollow landmark is Emily’s Bridge, a small wooden covered bridge that carries Covered Bridge Road over the Gold Brook. It’s also known as Stowe Hollow Bridge and the Gold Brook Covered Bridge and has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1974. Said by some to be haunted, the bridge is the only surviving 19th-century covered bridge in Stowe.
Stowe Hollow is also home to one of Stowe’s most popular hiking trails, The Pinnacle, which is located just off Upper Hollow Road. With panoramic views of Mt. Elmore, the Worcester Range and the spine of the Green Mountains, including Mt. Mansfield, Camel’s Hump and Mt. Ellen beyond the tiny village of Stowe, The Pinnacle is well worth the 1.4 mile hike to the top.
