About Stump Sprouts
Stump Sprouts is a small rustic resort on a 450 acre mountain top farm just south of the Mohawk Trail. With elevations ranging up to 2000', Stump Sprouts has some of the most reliable snow conditions in Southern New England. 25 KM of trails designed primarily for classical skiing and snowshoeing wind through the property and out into the adjoining state forest. The unique trail system features wooded glades and landscaped intersections connected by a variety of trails. A large boulder stands guard near a clearing at the highest point on the land where four trails meet. The view from this point makes it a popular destination.
The lodge was hand built and furnished by the Crawfords, who have operated Stump Sprouts for over 30 years. The lodge features expansive vistas in all directions, a fireplace, and several cozy bunkrooms. Great home-cooked meals are provided for weekend guests and midweek groups. The lodge is a favorite gathering spot year round for family reunions, clubs, small weddings, and informal business meetings. Couples, individuals, and families all find it a wonderful place to spend vacations and holidays during the winter months.
Built entirely with wood from the land, heated with sustainably harvested trees from our land and using a photovoltaic system that provides as much electricity as we consume, Stump Sprouts is one of the most eco-friendly winter resorts anywhere.
