Weekend Wellness Escape: Windham Hill Inn, Vermont


If you’ve dreamed about Vermont’s bucolic lifestyle and food culture, this Green Mountain inn will handsomely deliver on the fantasy and more.

If you’ve dreamed about Vermont’s bucolic lifestyle and want to experience the ultimate Green Mountain retreat, the Windham Hill Inn will handsomely deliver on the fantasy and more.

The 26-room inn is just over four hours from New York City. And when you’re sitting in an Adirondack chair, surrounded by the kind of calm and quiet that hurts, you couldn’t feel further away. In fact, your cell phone won’t even work here. (Mostly.)

We loved the barn accommodations (ask for a suite with a deck or fireplace—or both), and the delightful, attentive inn keeper, Katja Matthews. While the luxe inn is already a hit with canoodling couples, it’s suited to urbanites of all stripes looking for a restorative retreat and white-glove service in a country setting.

How to live la vida Vermont:

Go for a hike on the inn’s well-marked trails, which span a fraction of its 160 acres. Watch out for baby bears! During our stay one hiker spotted a very cute one on her pre-breakfast hike. (We just saw a wild turkey.) There’s a pretty outdoor heated pool for a dip afterward.

Get a massage in the barn. In addition to a handful of guest rooms, there’s the cutest one room spa you ever did see in the barn. Talented therapists come from the surrounding area and deliver a seriously spectacular deep tissue massage.

Settle in for dinner. Vermont’s known for its excellent food culture, and it’s showcased at the inn’s superb dining room. Much of the produce comes from the lovingly tended organic gardens on the property, and the other ingredients come from excellent artisanal purveyors and local farms. Save room for the three-course breakfast the next morning, which is included in the rate.
