Take some time to smell the local wildflowers and step outside into the 350-acre wilderness amid the Green Mountain National Forest to see nature in full bloom. Take the short walk to the resort's private beach, where you will find complimentary use of the kayaks, canoes, or paddleboat. Later, you may opt to take a guided trail ride on horseback.

The seeds for a serene Escape have been planted—just be sure you pick this one before it wilts at week's end.
