Gluten-Free in Stowe VT....sounds like a jingle, but, let us assure you, Gluten-Free travel is possible for your entire family here in Stowe, Vermont.

This is our 2011 Best of Stowe VT™ Gluten-Free Food and Dining Guide
A few notes: Just like our 2011 Best of Stowe VT™ Dining Guide, we selected these food and dining locations based on a combination of personal experience and Stowe Meadows Lodge guest feedback. Restaurants that advertised "gluten free" items on their menus, but whose staff didn't understand GF (ex. they brought the salad complete with croutons), did not make our list. We feel that a top-rated GF business should have staff and chefs who truly understand issues like cross-contamination. We visited each of our recommended locations multiple times and never had a negative reaction.
