Modern 19th-century resort complex, sandwiched between Vermont’s Green and Taconic Mountains, home to one of the country’s top golf courses
The 195 accommodations at this 200-year-old complex (spread out among a main building, a clutch of townhouses, and a restored inn distinguished by its iconic Doric pillar façade) underwent a $20 million overhaul in 2008. While rooms swapped their outdated pine furniture for contemporary pieces by New York-based designer Geoffrey Bradfield, the property retains its quaint soul thanks to uniformed bellhops and homey details like rocking chairs that line its front porch. One of the original taverns, rumored to be a watering hole and strategizing spot for revolutionaries during the Civil War, also remains. The neighboring 1,000-acre wilderness preserve is a pretty natural playground where city slickers can participate in a long list of rugged pursuits, like a crash course (no pun intended) on off-roading aboard one of the property’s Land Rovers or Hummers or trout fishing on the Battenkill River, while colder months offer snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. The nights here, which might involve a board game session besides a crackling stone fireplace, are delightfully low-key.
In the Area
The resort, a leisurely four-hour drive from New York City, is ideal for a New England road trip.
