Make yourself at home at Taconic, a welcoming new Kimpton hotel sitting in the Vermont countryside. Traditional architecture, a grand front porch and rustic, earthy tones make this getaway homey both inside and out. You’ll feel just like family once you check in, thanks to thoughtful extras like complimentary coffee and tea in the living room, daily hosted wine hours and a yoga mat in your room – which happens to be a calming oasis in general. The plush furnishings, luxury bedding and cottage-style details create a friendly space and a perfect base.
Even the restaurant, the Copper Grouse, is an inviting spot. Unpretentious American classics are served in a warm and thoughtful tavern that make you and your fellow diners feel like community. And the sense of community extends beyond Taconic, too, with area farms providing ingredients for the restaurant’s rustic menu and kind locals who teach art classes, run shops and lead horse-drawn sleigh rides in the snow. Let the Taconic staff, ever eager to help, point you to the best of each.

The Copper Grouse Restaurant & Bar is the soul of Vermont cuisine. Classic regional fare is served in a chic tavern, emphasizing ingredients from local farms.

A destination for all the seasons, this Vermont escape also offers plenty of activities to keep you busy, like skiing, fly-fishing, golfing, antiquing, kayaking and hiking. Enjoy award-winning live music, browse local art galleries, try a tasting at a craft brewery, or visit a dairy farm. Your stay in this quaint Vermont town will be as laid-back or adventurous as you choose.
How to Get There
We stayed at the Kimpton Taconic for three days and the experience was amazing, well located in Main Street, The hotel is very nice and well kept. Rooms are comfortable, clean as same as bathroom. It is a Dog friendly place. It has a beautiful porch were you can enjoy the view while you have a good conversation with other guests. The Hotel offer a happy hour to enjoy a drink and hors d'oeuvre.
Lucky me, I won this 2 night stay here. Beautiful hotel very clean. Service is slow at the restaurant but it was worth it. The burger on the menu is delicious. Yummy offer in the morning. Equinox golf course is nearby and the course is great.
This was the most pet friendly hotel we have been to with our dogs and the hotel was comfortable and very accommodating. We would return should we be back on the area...everyone there seems to look out for our comfort.
Not shown in the rates up front (but listed as additional charges before booking).... Resort Fee.
Though we did not participate in any “resort activities”, was charged a resort fee. Was told the resort fee covers parking and internet access. Uhmm... the Hampton Inn down the street offers parking and internet access without charging a resort fee.
Great stay at the Kimpton. Lovely modern hotel,with quality fittings and furnishings. Room clean, lady who checked us in was great and we arrived just in time to enjoy a complimentary glass of wine, only slight disappointment was the breakfast, hotel only offering a buffet on the Sunday morning, and it seemed quite limited, in the choices available and very little for my vegan daughter other than a fresh fruit salad Hotel please take note!. No cereals on offer.They did have soya milk and herbal teas available in the lobby with the tea and coffee though. So perhaps we were just unlucky that the a la Carte menu wasn’t available. Staff friendly and welcoming . We also enjoyed the pool area. Hotel is dog friendly which was nice to see. Would stay here again.
