Vermont itself is a place that's very obviously alive with its own spirit. The air is crisp and perfumed, instantly changing the mood of any visitor to one of renewal and ease. Within this microcosm of retreat lies the Windham Hill Inn, a heritage 21-room country inn that seems to hug each an every guest.
160 acres of private land in the Green Mountains welcome you with a network of hiking trails, tennis courts, and an outdoor pool. Nearby, museums and craft shops await those with greater curiosity.
Breakfast at Windham Hill Inn could wake the sleepiest of guests with one whiff, featuring fresh ground coffee, daily baked muffins and breads, crepes, savory egg dishes, and even Champagne - if the occasion calls for it.
The real pleasures here, though, are the rooms, suites, and cottages. Antiques pepper each space, ranging from Pine headboards to freestanding baths. Molton Brown products will have you grinning as you inhale and wrap yourself in terry towel - just before getting acquainted with your cozy bed. 15 rooms feature fireplaces and brick flourishes, with many sporting their own private patios should you feel inspired to wrap up in tartan blanket and pen your first novel.
