Sterling Ridge, what a summer vacation resort!
Summer is a wonderful time at the Resort. Explore many activities like swimming in our in-ground heated pool, hiking, mountain biking, nature walks, kayaking, canoeing, horseback riding or just relaxing with a good book, antiquing, browsing in local boutiques or enjoying the culinary bounty at local restaurants.
Trails for Hiking, Swimming and Cycling
There are hiking trails at Sterling Ridge or a challenging hike on the Long Trail that will take you to the summit of Mt. Mansfield, where you will experience breathtaking panoramic views. For a more relaxing experience, take a walk on our natural road, through a covered bridge out to Brewster River Park. While there, enjoy a refreshing dip in one of many swimming holes along the way.

Green Mountain Troutfitters, just down the road, offers equipment and a guide service to enhance any fishing trip or try a bass fishing boat excursion with Bass Fishing Vermont - a pet friendly, guided fishing experience.
Things to do nearby
Stowe Village is nearby or as we say, "through the Notch". Enjoy the Stowe Rec. Path, a five mile recreational path that is great for cycling, rollerblading or walking. Bike rentals can also be found right on the Stowe path. Nearby, one can find an alpine slide, rollerblade park, and a gondola ride to the top of the ski hill on Mt. Mansfield.
There are many unique craft shops, antique stores, and restaurants to discover. A visit to Waterbury is a must, so that you can tour the Ben & Jerry's ice cream factory.
