Moss Glen Falls in Stowe, Vermont is a spectacular waterfall to visit. The Moss Glen Brook flows through a forest before the stream turns into a narrow confined gorge.  The stream goes over several cascades and small falls before dropping into a pool at the top of the last drop. The total drop of the waterfall is 125 feet which makes it one of the largest falls in Vermont.        The falls are accessed by a short flat trail with a steep roughly thirty foot climb at the end. You can also view the falls by walking up the stream from below.Here are a few photos to show just how beautiful Moss Glen Falls is! Be sure to include it in any visit to scenic Stowe, Vermont!

Stowe, Vermont - Condo Sales Market Report - 2007 through 2015     2015 seems to have been the year of the condo/townhome real estate market comeback!  Stowe, Vermont has many condo developments.  Many condos are owned by primary residences.  They can be a great solution for locals who prefer not to deal with chores such as mowing and plowing.  Most, however, tend to be purchased by vacation property buyers.  Condos can be the perfect solution for those folks that like to come and visit Stowe to ski/snowboard in the winter, or enjoy the Stowe Rec Path in the summer, or become a leaf peeper during our spectacular foliage.  Many also invest in condos to use occasionally and rent when not in use.     Here is a Chart showing Stowe, Vermont Condo Sales, Inventory and Sale Prices for the year...

Stowe, Vermont Land Sales - Market Report - 2007 through 2015Stowe Vermont Land Sales were significantly down in 2015 when compared to 2014.       I have found that the demand for land to purchase is very much affected by the the single family market trends.  When homes are selling for less than "the normal", the demand for land purchases is reduced.  Also, the cost to carry land by the current owners it not nearly as high as home owners.  Land owners, for the most part, just have to keep up with property taxes.  Once the real estate market becomes more balanced, the demand for land to build one's dream home will pick back up again.  The new homes will incorparate the demand for higher energy efficient homes.     Here is a chart comparing the statistics of land sales in Stowe from 2007 ...

There is a lot going on tonight at Spruce Peak in Stowe, Vermont. There was a torchlite parade down the ski slope with fireworks afterwards. The new ice skating rink was being enjoyed by many while looking at the nicely decorated Christmas tree and the fire in the outdoor fireplace. There are several ice sculptures to enjoy. What a perfect place to ring in the new year!
