Trapp etc..Trapp is very picturesque, food is good, rooms adequate. Check out Stowe's website, the Lodge at the mountain has some great deals, and the rooms are really good. The Stowe Inn, owned by Peter Rushp, is usually good value.
Green Mountain Inn is centrally located, lovely hotel. The Commodores Inn is also very convenient and reasonably priced.
