Stowe away

Attention leaf-peepers: You’d better fill up the gas tank; the season to drive through winding New England back roads to check out the scenery is here.

For travelers who like a little luxury with their foliage, the Stowe Mountain Lodge in Vermont is the ideal place to make a pit-stop in the coming weeks.

“Right now, we’re almost at the peak season,” says Rick Fidel, the Lodge’s rooms executive. “Another week or two, and we’ll be there. The leaves are already starting to change.”

This newly built New England mountain lodge knows its audience — it’s currently promoting special rates (through November, get 10 percent off for one night, 20 percent off for two and 30 percent for three nights or more) as well as offering guided hikes for all athletic abilities, so you can see the beauty of a New England fall up close.
