Relaxing Resort Charm, Just Minutes From Camel's Hump State Park
For classic New England hiking on one of the few undeveloped peaks of Vermont, consider Camel's Hump State Park - just a short drive from The Inn, and well worth the journey. Known as the Sleeping Lion by French explorers, it remains a favored peak for the preservation of rare plants and wilderness habitat. Or brave the steep, narrow trails of Mount Philo, and feast your eyes on spectacular views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks.

After an invigorating hike in the brisk mountain air, come home to our resort, and relax in the comfort of your contemporary -country -style guest room. Nurture your body and revitalize your spirit at the neighboring day spa. And - if you still have the energy - poke about the numerous antique shops, or stop in at one of the local wineries for a taste.

Either way, a day of outdoor exploration isn't complete without savoring a meal at one of three of our Culinary Institute restaurants on property. Whether you're climbing the pristine peak of Mount Mansfield, or ambling the quiet lanes and backwoods of the Champlain Valley, our institute offers a host of features and services for your exclusive enjoyment, including:
