Southern Vermont forms the backdrop for a sojourn of unparalleled tranquillity. The Inn’s isolated location amid 160 acres of pine and maple forests makes it the ideal retreat for winter walks and snowshoeing from the doorstep. In the main farm house, dating back almost two hundred years, rustic chic rooms feature antiques and locally-crafted furniture – some having jet spa tubs, many with private porches, fireplaces and window seats. Original farming equipment enhances the rustic charms of the adjacent White Barn – rooms and suites are prettily decked out in gingham and farmhouse-style rugs, with positioned-for-vistas soaking tubs. For impressive 360 degree views, choose the atmospheric suite in the lookout tower; for privacy, select the three-bedroom cottage in the grounds. Farm-to-table cuisine is served in the restaurant, your stay including a gourmet breakfast, afternoon tea, evening cheese board and complimentary hot and seasonal beverages. The delightful shops and clapboard houses of Manchester are a forty minute drive, and in just twenty minutes you can be in the ski resort of Stratton.
