The Destination
Perched in the Green Mountains, up a winding road somewhere off Interstate 89, Bolton Valley feels a bit like the middle of nowhere. This is the kind of place that gives the Green Mountains their name, a place where it's hard not to see the forest for the trees because that's all there is to see: dense deciduous forest plastered over ancient mountains. Now get this: It's just 24 miles from Burlington and 23 miles from Montpelier, the state's largest city and its capital city. Welcome to Northern Vermont's premier four-season playground.

The Digs
Vermont's only mountaintop B&B with private hot tubs behind many of the guest rooms, the Black Bear Inn sits on 6,000 acres adjacent to Bolton Valley Resort, offering ski-in/ski-out access to more than 60 trails. With a ski-lodge-turned-B&B feel to it, the Black Bear features 25 rooms, all appointed with handmade quilts and antique furnishings, some with old-timey gas firestoves. But make no mistake: Each is equipped with contemporary amenities—plush bedding, wireless Internet, cable TV—to make guests feel right at home.

After a workout on the slopes or a trip out to the big city, tuck into a three-course dinner in the dining room. With soft candlelight and white tablecloths setting the mood, Chef Brian O'Neil, a longtime veteran of the culinary arts and a fixture at the inn, prepares unpretentious yet elegant country fare. Grilled sirloin steak au poivre and a bottle from the carefully curated award-winning wine list, anyone?

  • "What's not to like? Great hotel, great location, great people—and the best food I had eaten on a four week visit to North America."
