Suites with fireplaces. On-site equestrian centers. Upscale spas and restaurants. Just some of the fine touches you can expect in the top luxury hotels in Vermont – all bookable on Culture Trip.

With verdant summers that slide into a blazing fall palette before a white winter blanket settles over rolling hills and peaks, Vermont is rightly famed for its dramatic shifting of seasons. A scattering of quaint towns also paints a picture of a timeless, quintessential America, adding to the perennial appeal of this New England state. And, if you’re feeling flush and want to experience the state in style, there’s no shortage of blow-the-budget hotels in Vermont to make your stay here extra special, too.

Kimpton Taconic Hotel quickly established itself as one of the finest boutique hotels in Vermont, and it doesn’t take long to see why. The personalized service includes the option of custom-made itineraries for each day, ensuring you make the most of your Vermont vacation. If you’d rather take it slow, an in-room spa service offers everything from detoxifying body wraps to a romantic couple’s massage – opt for the suite with a fireplace to keep things extra toasty.

Luxury doesn’t come much quainter than a stay at the Four Columns Inn. From a fairytale facade to bewitching gardens – complete with a babbling brook – it’s hard not to fall for the charms of this historic Vermont hotel. You’ll find log-burning fireplaces and deep soaking jacuzzis in most rooms for winter warming; in summer, massages by the pond are a not-to-be-missed treat. Fantastic farm-to-table dining completes the enchanting experience.

With a skillfully rendered combination of rustic chic and Scandi style, Hotel Vermont charms as soon as you set foot inside – the blazing log fire draws you in further to linger in the cozy corner lounge. For a spoiling stay, book yourself into one of the huge suites at this luxury hotel in Vermont, and luxuriate in a whirlpool tub, before fixing a drink from the in-room bar in your fancy Vermont flannel bathrobe. If you can tear yourself away, the Juniper restaurant is highly regarded for its classic American fare and signature cocktails.

Woodstock Inn & Resort

Woodstock Inn oozes as much affluent luxury as you’d expect from a hotel created by a member of the Rockefeller clan. The old inn was torn down and rebuilt in the style of a grand 19th-century New England estate, and it’s certainly a beauty to behold. Glamorous boudoir-style suites celebrate local heritage while offering top-tier comforts such as in-room bars, spa-quality products and Nespresso coffee makers. Pull in for posh pampering at the spa, before enjoying a lavish afternoon tea that will really make you feel part of Vermont’s high society.

From the gleaming columned facade through to the full-service spa and 18-hole golf course, the Equinox is every inch the swanky, luxury resort in Vermont. For more than two centuries, it has drawn well-heeled visitors to its luxury lodgings, where a sense of historic grandeur combines with world-class facilities. Refined dining attracts discerning locals here, too, while this year-round resort also offers no end of outdoor activities – including tracing 11 trails through the 1,000-acre (405ha) hotel reserve, expedition-style Land Rover experiences, fishing and falconry.

With 120 acres (49ha) of grounds set against a scenic backdrop of a wooded mountain, Topnotch Resort in Vermont impresses for its setting as much as its ample array of upscale extras. The in-house equestrian center promises horse-drawn adventure, and there’s a world-class tennis academy to help sharpen your serve, too. Afterward, soothe tired limbs at the deluxe spa, or, back at your suite, slip into your deep granite tub. Finally, embark on an evening of fine dining, or curl up with a glass of wine by the log fire in your lounge.

Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa

First opened as a modest motel in 1963, the family-run Stoweflake Mountain Resort has evolved over three generations into this expansive, high-end holiday hideaway – one of the best resorts in Vermont. A huge spa takes center stage, with a dizzying choice of Ayurvedic massages and signature body treatments, plus mineral soaking pools, fire-warmed lounges and a Zen meditation garden. Retox with a tipple from the 3,000-bottle wine cellar, or at the cozy wraparound bar of the Charlie B’s Pub & Restaurant, offering all the warmth and bonhomie of a traditional Vermont tavern.

The Lodge at Spruce Peak

Spruce Peak isn’t just a hotel but a self-contained resort offering everything you might need for an upscale Vermont vacation, including some seriously high-end indulgences. Splash out on a suite at the Lodge for spectacular mountain views, or luxury cabins with designer kitchens and ski-in, ski-out access. The Spa Butler Program brings wellness directly to your door, and there are tons of dining options, events and activities to cherry-pick from, too.
