Hugged by the forested alpine slopes in Stowe, with a village green and ice rink at its core, this mountain lodge looks plucked from a German fairytale. Rustic as the exterior may be, the resort packs in luxury comforts, including marble bathrooms fitted with whirlpool tubs – ideal for relaxing after hitting the slopes or indulging in the raclette at the cozy on-site restaurant.

2. Hotel Vermont in Burlington, for a stylish stay

Oozing Scandi chic from its blond wood furnishings, clean white walls and tripod lamps, this stylish Burlington hotel is ideal for couples with an eye for design. Dig into a wood-fired pizza at the outdoor kitchen and bar before kicking back in your private whirlpool tub for a laid-back romantic getaway. Foodies should also know that one of the best restaurants in Burlington, Hen of the Wood, is steps away.

3. Woodstock Inn and Resort, for timeless elegance

Housed in a grand 19th-century mansion fronted by white pillars, this resort proclaims itself as “Vermont’s most beautiful address.” One look at the rooms, with their tassel-tied bed curtains and vases of fresh-cut peonies, and it’s hard to disagree. For a lavish romantic escape, book the suite modeled after the personal rooms of billionaire businessman Laurance S Rockefeller. Top off your trip with a private wine-and-cheese tasting with the executive chef.

4. Kimpton Taconic Hotel in Manchester, for a romantic stay near the slopes

Set amid the color-morphing trees in Manchester and a short drive from the slopes, this stately colonnaded hotel draws leaf peepers and skiers alike. If you’d rather stay indoors, you can cozy up by the open fire in winter or take a dip in the outdoor heated pool in summer. Ultra-soft Frette linens and, in some rooms, freestanding baths bring understated luxury to the mountain-view rooms, while the on-site Copper Grouse restaurant deals in farm-to-table specials, such as the duck confit potato hash.

5. Topnotch Resort in Stowe, for a home away from home
