If you think autumn in Vermont is beautiful, wait until you've seen winter—we're pretty sure snow globes were invented to replicate those velvety-white months in the state's idyllic countryside.

Delight in your own personal snowscape at The Hermitage Inn in West Dover, less than two hours from Albany. Originally a 19th-century farm, The Hermitage Inn has been continually reinvented to include a wine wing, carriage house, and a second residence. Today, the 21st-century property mixes old and new, with eco-friendly practices, vintage furniture, flat-screen TVs, a game room, famed artwork, and hot tubs adorning the property.

Snuggle up in the distinctly New England ambience of a double, full, queen, or king room. Some of the 15 individually decorated accommodations feature original canopy beds, plaid blankets, and natural wood accents, and all rooms come with Wi-Fi, gas-burning fireplaces, and views of the countryside.

Once you've settled in to your room, hit the on-site ice rink for some figure-eights and triple toe loops. Then, imagine you're a bobsledding champ on the Inn's tubing hill, offering a thrilling 500-foot vertical drop.

With rosy cheeks and chilly toes, you'll want to warm up over an elegant dinner at the inn's restaurant. Executive Chef Paul Eschbach will dream up your culinary fare with a menu that cites both local and international ingredients as its muse. Indulge in epicurean delights like a Vermont cheese board, butter-poached Maine lobster, or a miso-glazed dry-aged strip steak.

The following day, strap on snowshoes or cross-country skis and track up the miles of wooded and meadowed trails that surround the property. Then, soak your weary legs in the hot tub and curl up with a
book by the fireplace in your room.

  • "The Hermitage exceeded my expectations in all areas: beauty of location, quality of room, friendliness of staff, quality and selection of restaurants, and available activities. I've already booked another trip back."
