Four of New England’s Best Vacation Hotels

December 8, 2021

People look for New England’s best vacation hotels when the holiday season is near. Whether people celebrate Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, or the Winter Solstice – they are spoiled for choice when marking the darkest time of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. 

Here are four of New England’s best vacation hotels.

The Wilburton – Manchester, Vermont

Sandwiched between the Green and Taconic Mountain ranges in southwest Vermont, The Wilburton – formerly a 1902 mansion – has been transformed into a country inn. The hotel is pet-friendly and adorned with season-themed decorations. 

Besides, there will be a signature seasonal Wilburton event in early December, the canine Christmas slumber party weekend.

Shopping enthusiasts love Manchester’s 40+ stores of the Manchester Designer Outlets, plus several locally-owned shops and art galleries, all nearby.

Snowvillage Inn – Snowville, New Hampshire

Rather than referencing the fluffy snowflakes blanketing the village, Snowville is named after the Snow family that started a sawmill here in 1825.

The inn offers a snowshoeing program, including guided tours through the forest that surrounds the place. Visitors can look forward to the inn’s cozy atmosphere. There’s a lobby fireplace, and the antique wood stove creates a rustic cabin vibe. 

Make wreaths during your vacation and join the annual Mount Washington Valley Inn to Inn Cookie Tour.

Woodstock Inn & Resort – Woodstock, Vermont

The idyllic village of Woodstock appeals to visitors with its annual Wassail Weekend in early December. The festival revives an old English celebration to appreciate nature’s abundance and mark the end of the harvest time.

You won’t find a warmer winter welcome than at the Woodstock’s lobby fireplace that invites you to linger. Sit down and read a book, or simply gape at the garlands, wreaths, fairytale lighting that evoke the magical feel of this season. 

Also, kids love the lobby’s massive, six-foot-tall gingerbread house – a true playground to explore.

Winvian Farm – Morris, Connecticut

Don’t like the seasonal hustle and bustle? Winvian Farm offers silent nights and coziness. Spread across 113 gorgeous acres amid the Litchfield Hills, this haven of tranquility in the country on the original 1775 farmhouse is surrounded by huts – from rural cottages to unique ones like the one erected around a genuine helicopter.

Kick back at the inn’s spa and tuck into scrumptious food at the inn’s restaurant, one of Connecticut’s quality eateries. Surrounded by a garden sprawling with vegetation, the guys serve food from its doorstep and provide cozy fireplaces.
