A romantic retreat with homemade eats spread between 18th and 19th century buildings with access to ski spots
With a hilly nest in northeastern Vermont, the estate-style Rabbit Hill Inn is as homey as it is scenic. Dating back to 1795, the rooms are split between the main house, the original historic building and a carriage house, and décor runs the gamut from rustic-chic to fusty florals. Some rooms have fireplaces, canopy beds and/or double whirlpool tubs. Set on 15 acres of manicured gardens and wooded hills (plus a spring-fed pond), there are plenty of hiking trails and outdoor adventures. The kitchen will be sure you’re fueled up with housemade granola and hot breakfasts (think cheddar and roasted red pepper egg Napoleons with sundried tomato anglaise and rosemary potato galette) followed by elegant afternoon teas, craft cocktails and seasonal American fare like roasted Cavendish guinea hen with truffle glazed corn and patty pans for dinner.
In the Area
In the winter, you’re within driving distance of the slopes at Cannon, Burke or Bretton Woods. The hotel can arrange for romantic winter sleigh rides as well. Spend a day strolling through picturesque Littleton, NH, about 15 minutes away, whose quaint streets are lined with antiques shops, galleries, boutiques and cafes. Sample the hearty American fare at Bailiwick’s Fine Restaurant with dishes like farm stand risotto and pork tenderloin with sweet potato-pineapple hash. Head north to St. Johnsbury to visit the 1871 Athenaeum, a historic library with an impressive collection of American art.
