Backed by dense pine forests and overlooking one of the state’s largest lakes, the surrounds of Lake Bomoseen Lodge certainly score highly for natural beauty. Its condo and cottage accommodation is spread around several colonial-style buildings and offers home-from-home touches, such as full kitchens and snug lounges areas. Shorefront rooms provide dreamily uninterrupted views over the lake. Take to the water with free-to-borrow kayaks, canoes or paddleboards; on return, choose from a dizzying selection of craft ales in the Taproom.

The Vermont House’s immaculately whitewashed clapboard façade couldn’t fit more perfectly among the ridiculously quaint village setting of Wilmington. A travelers’ inn since opening in the 1850s, it’s been fully modernized throughout, while retaining a cozily traditional vibe. Reclaimed wood combines with sumptuous fabrics in the two-bedroom suite, which adds home comforts such as a kitchen, a living room and several bathrooms. After a day of exploring, warm up in the bar beside a crackling fire with a tipple from the lengthy wine list.
