The closest many of us get to a farm is walking down the dairy aisle. If you've been longing to take the nearest country road out of town, hitch a ride with this week's Escape to The Inn at the Round Barn Farm in scenic Waitsfield, Vermont.

Less than an hour outside Burlington, the converted 19th-century farm house and its round barn are set on 245 acres of mountains, meadows, and ponds in the Mad River Valley, recognized as a Historic District by the National Register of Historic Places. This sophisticated B&B is a relaxing retreat in pastoral paradise.

May 1 to June 21, you can plant the seeds of romance with a three-night stay for two in an individually decorated guest room ($392). You'll get cozy in a plush bed topped with a down comforter while enjoying your "Laughter Is the Best Medicine" welcome gift. Cultivate inner calm with an included hour-long yoga session and local handmade herbal teas from Vermont Liberty Tea Company.

You'll be spoiled with an apple a day, fresh-baked cookies, and afternoon hors d'œuvres, not to mention daily farm-to-fork breakfasts. As a founding member of the Vermont Fresh Network, The Inn at the Round Barn Farm serves seasonal fare from local organic growers. Graze on sweet fruit, creative entrees, rich Vermont-roasted coffee, and fresh-squeezed juice as you admire the incredible view of the hills through floor-to-ceiling windows.

Adventurous types can have bales of fun on a trek along Long Trail, named one of the "Best Hikes Ever" by Backpacker magazine. For an outstanding equestrian experience, take the reins on a guided tour of the countryside with the Vermont Icelandic Horse Farm, one of USA Today's "10 Great Places to Go Horseback Riding." These small yet sturdy horses will carry you through the valley's sunny meadows and wild thickets.

Getaways this good don't crop up very often, so harvest this week's Escape while it's still in season.

  • "You pass through a covered bridge just off Route 100 to arrive at one of the most romantic B&Bs in northern New England, a regal barn and farmhouse on 245 sloping acres with views of fields all around."
