Vermont hotel vacations in ski country -- hotel listings, descriptions, availability and online reservations

by Eric H., lifelong New Englander

Along with New Hampshire, Vermont is generally regarded as having the best overall skiing in New England. Some ski areas like Killington have virtually built a community around skiing while other like Okemo in Ludlow and Mt. Mansfield in Stowe are a scenic part of established, classic storied Vermont towns.

Skiing is a nice way to spend a vacation, but your travel experience in Vermont doesn't go "downhill" from there. In this "green" state, you will find charming country stores with everything, but the kitchen sink (and some great Vermont cheddar cheese), beautiful unspoiled villages with cozy, warm fireside restaurants and interesting shops, and country roads that provide stunning panoramic scenic beauty.

Stowe is our personal favorite, the ultimate charming, historic Vermont village (it's 200 years old) with sweeping mountain views (Mt. Mansfield is Vermont's highest peak) and plenty of shopping, strolling, scenery and, of course, skiing opportunities. There are many fine restaurants, one of our favorites being the Shed (1859 Mountain Rd. (Route 108), Stowe, VT. Tel. (802) 253-4364). This large, attractive, popular Stowe landmark serves the incredible Shed Burger, soaked in beer, enhanced with spices and served on an English muffin. You can't go wrong, either, with any of its steak, seafood, chicken or salad offerings in an extremely friendly, well-run restaurant. The Mountain Road where the Shed is located also features myriad shops in kind of an upscale strip mall fashion, but it never gets overwhelming or generic; the wonderful mountain ambiance of Stowe overrides everything and just forces you to relax.

Vermont is really the perfect place to find a high end hotel or cozy inn, enjoy the skiing and discover what is regarded as some of the best representation of the classic New England lifestyle within the six-state region.
