Our proud

Stowehof history


The story of The Stowehof begins in the summer of 1945. While on vacation in Stowe, the burgeoning Ski Capital of the East, architect Larry Hess comes upon a beautiful mountain hilltop. He takes in the magnificent view of Stowe Valley and recognizes the location’s potential.

1949 / 1950

It’s settled. Hess is ready to build The Stowehof, and his plan is a progressive one for the time: reclaim, recycle, repurpose.


Hess sells the thriving business to C.V. Starr, founder of the insurance giant known today as A.I.G. Starr, who plans to use The Stowehof as a retreat for his friends and executive personnel. They have their fun, and eventually the Mt. Mansfield Company takes over operation of The Stowehof as a hotel. The property is ultimately sold to Peter Bartholemew, a long time employee of Starr’s.

Fritz Wiessner, an illustrious pioneer of free climbing, was once a neighbor of The Stowehof, but in the 1980s, he decides he loves The Stowehof enough to make it his permanent residence. He later goes on to donate the Wiessner Woods to the Stowe Land Trust. As a result, guests can take advantage of snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, dog-walking, and hiking through the woods.


The property is restored to its former luster while incorporating enhancements and updates. The Stowehof lives on.
