If you enjoy a nice craft brewed micro brew the Alchemist in Waterbury (where you exit i89 for Stowe) is a VERY good Brewpub. Be a little careful at the Shed or you will experience a local phenomena known as the 'Shedache'... the beer there doesn't always agree with everyone and it's high octane, usually over 8%.
Other good places:
The Matterhorn for classic Apres ski.
Mr Pickwicks in the Old English Inn (next to Golden Eagle) great English Pub with a ridiculous beer menu and REALLY good food... but $$$, mmmm Kobe beef sliders...
Rimrock Tavern if you want to catch any sports on TV in a bar with nice TVs (short walk from G.E)
It's always worth taking a ride up to Trapp Family Lodge to just see the scenery.
I work right across the street from the Golden Eagle, I'm happy to help if you need any guidance for the area and I'll probably be out skiing Tuesday and Thursday. Stop in and say hi.
