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.

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 here two nights as part of a New England road trip. We stayed in one of the cottages. There was a convention at the hotel during our stay, but they ensured the hotel guests were not effected by this. We were offered a free social drink on the front porch. The decor was contemporary New England style with open fire in the reception area. The adjoining restaurant was excellent. The rooms had some really nice touches- walking stick, umbrellas, bath robes. I particularly loved the yoga mat. It is Located within walking distance of the main town , with lots of designer outlet shops as well as local independent shops. There are lots of hiking options locally. We also went kayaking. The staff were very helpful. The manager went above and beyond with his service. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Beautiful setting and building, warm welcoming staff and service, and an exceptional experience all around. This hotel lives up to and exceeds the very high standards I find at all Kimpton hotels, but due to its setting in small-town VT, it stands out as maybe the best. The service from staff at the front desk, the restaurant and throughout the hotel made this an exceptionally pleasant stay.
Had a wonderful overnight stay at the Kimpton Taconic. From setting foot inside the reception with the roaring log fire, to enjoying the early evening Social Hour with a free glass of wine (5-6pm) in a rocking chair on the porch, this was a fantastic stay! Great service, brilliant location and some of the best food we've had this trip downstairs in the Copper Grouse.
