If you’re heading to Mount Snow and the surrounding Green Mountains in Vermont, you’ll be spoiled with activity choices in summer or winter. These places to stay in and around Mount Snow are perfect for reflecting on your day’s adventures, and bookable on Culture Trip.
Vermont’s Green Mountains offer a pastoral holiday year-round. From Stratton Mountain to Mount Snow, the range is rich in ski resorts, but you don’t have to be comfortable on skis or a snowboard to want to explore, as there’s also hiking and fishing, as well as leaf-peeping in the fall. Charming small towns and resort villages offer the essentials, while lodging is focused on relaxation and après-ski features, such as fire pits and saunas. Choose one of these hotels or inns as the base for your outdoor getaway.
Take in the mountain views, whether you’re planning to hit the slopes at Mount Snow or not, from this bucolic inn in West Dover. Cozy rooms have a modern farmhouse vibe, which isn’t stodgy or dated. There’s even a charging station for electric cars. The on-site chef focuses on cooking with local ingredients. Book vacation packages with your stay, such as in-room massages or horse-drawn sleigh rides in winter. Packages that include ski lift tickets are available, too.
This 1850s-era colonial-style bed and breakfast is about 15 minutes south of the Mount Snow ski hill in Wilmington. But it is front-and-center for all the charming town’s après-ski activities, including restaurants, bars and boutiques. The guest rooms have been updated with modern decor and amenities without losing the historic charm. If you are a light sleeper or have kids, consider asking for a room that faces the back, which gives you a little buffer from Wilmington’s bustling evening scene.
Each of the 10 rooms at this bed and breakfast in the Green Mountains is different. All aim to provide a romantic, cozy experience away from it all (the property is about an hour northwest of the Mount Snow ski resort), with four-poster beds, antique furnishings, gas fireplaces and hot tubs. Home-cooked breakfasts include Vermont maple syrup as a local touch. The inn is popular with couples as a wedding, anniversary and babymoon destination.
The White House Inn was built in 1915 as a local lumber baron’s summer home, and ever since it has been a Green Mountain escape in one form or another. Today, it’s an 18-room inn with guest rooms featuring antiques and original woodwork. The decor isn’t fussy or overly period, however. The restaurant serves breakfast and dinner as well as a popular Sunday brunch. Take advantage of the inn’s hilltop location to admire views of Wilmington and the surrounding Green Mountains.
When’s the last time you stayed at an inn with alpacas on site? Never? Well then, it’s time to book a room. Hill Farm Inn, as is befitting its name, is a working farmstead, so you’ll take in meadow views and see the aforementioned alpacas, as well as goats, ducklings, pheasants and the barn cat named Milo. But you don’t have to get dirty (unless you want to). Rooms are modern and well appointed. Fish in the Battenkill River or just sit in a chair and warm yourself next to the fire.
Choose between studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units in the ski resort village and spend your time walking to the lifts, playing in the snow, soaking in the hot tub and relaxing in the sauna with the time you’re saving not commuting to and from Stratton Mountain. Units are independently owned, so features and decor vary. Ski lessons and other activities are available on site.
You can’t get much closer to the Mount Snow slopes than this four-bedroom house, which is less than 4mi (7km) from the resort. Relax under its beamed ceilings or on its sizable deck and patio and take in great views of the Green Mountains – perfect for sipping a hot toddy while you curl up by the fireplace. The pet-friendly home sleeps eight.
