Leaf-peeping season is almost here and this hotel is the perfect place to make all your fall dreams come true.

After being closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, Hotel Vermont has officially opened its doors to visitors again, just in time for the autumn leaves to change.

The hotel, located in Burlington, Vermont, near the shores of Lake Champlain, is a modern stay that is amazing for hikers, cyclists, outdoor lovers, or just people who want to relax and get away from the bustling city. It’s also the best place to celebrate all things fall.

Now that the hotel is open again, visitors can partake in the two customized fall foliage mini road trips that the hotel has curated especially for fall.

Hotel Vermont’s Fall Foliage itinerary is a scenic drive that takes you down Route 100 through Stowe, across Smuggler’s Notch, down through Jeffersonville and back to Burlington with several stops along the way to take pictures, rest, or just take in the beauty of some of the prettiest places in Vermont.

Or, if you’re looking for all the fall scenery plus lots of unique places to stop, you can take the hotel’s Take a Drive itinerary that takes you down Route 7 and highlights must-see spots, including Philo Ridge Farm, Rokeby Museum, Vermont African American Heritage Trail, Kingsland Bay State Park, and Vermont Cookie Love for some of the best cookies, ice cream, and other treats in the state.

Burlington also has lots to offer if you want to stay close to the hotel as well. The hotel can guide you on your own takeout brewery tour around the town, highlighting the best places to get to-go brews and delicious takeout food. Have yourself a personalized tasting either in your hotel room or on the hotel’s patio.

The hotel also has an outdoor restaurant that serves brick oven pizza and is open through October. Or, guests can enjoy to-go items from the hotel restaurant, Juniper.
