Hotels in Vermont
Vermont offers a wide variety of small inns, luxurious hotels, all-inclusive resorts, and romantic bed and breakfasts. But although Vermont is known for its outdoors, travelers with any type of lodging desires will find something to love from the many hotels in Vermont.
Two of the best hotels in Vermont are Three Mountain Inn and Equinox Resort & Spa. Three Mountain is a charming country resort and B&B located in Stratton, an unspoiled village of woodland trails and mountain views. Equinox, meanwhile, offers New England charm with contemporary luxury. There's a golf course, a spa, shooting and fly fishing courses. The property, which predates the American Revolution, was gorgeously renovated a few years ago. Both are perfect for outdoor adventure vacations or a romantic vacation by the fire, and both belong on the short list of best Vermont hotels.
