All our Vermont collections:
Vermont, in the north-eastern United States, is all about tantalising countryside scenes, from the spectacular fiery colours of ‘The Fall’ to the gorgeous greens of spring and summer (75% of the state is forest) to charming villages and snowy mountain ranges. Not surprisingly, it attracts outdoors enthusiasts whether skiers, snowboarders, walkers, mountain-bikers or hikers. Equally, it appeals to those who just like to drink in the scenery at a more stately pace, and our choice of the best places to stay in Vermont caters for both types.
Thousands of acres of alpine terrain make it a popular New England winter destination for skiers and snowboarders; Sugarbush is a favourite destination. You can go fly-fishing in the many creeks or cast from a boat on Lake Champlain or you might want to hike the 300-mile Long and Catamount Trails.
For a more leisurely visit, you can take a drive to admire Quechee Gorge or browse Hildene, the Georgian Revival mansion of Robert Todd Lincoln, son of the First President, or explore the Vermont Ski Museum in Stowe.
And foodies are in for a treat, too, with a cheese trail, food trails and dozens of farmers’ markets and craft breweries. Of course, it’s also the home of both Ben & Jerry’s ice cream - yes, you can tour the factory in Waterbury - and maple syrup.
Many of the welcoming, small, towns have attractive, well-preserved downtown areas with clap-board properties and handsome public buildings, such as Montpelier with its magnificent State House and thriving arts scene, and Wilmington with its great choice of farm-to-table eateries and artisan craft shops.
So use our guide to the best places to stay in Vermont to plan your trip.
