Vermont Inns: Dreamy Vacations and Vocations

The Shoreham Inn is for SaleFor sweethearts across the country, cozy Vermont Inns are the stuff of dreams. Especially in the Fall. Open your mind’s eye for a minute. Imagine crisp evening air, a crackling fire in the hearth and an exquisite meal of local food. Now lean back with a snifter of cognac, make it Calvados in honor of the apple season, and a slice of Banoffi pie and you are as near to heaven as you can get here in Central Vermont.

“Smoke wafted from the chimney, and two benches in front sat empty. I opened the red front door and to my surprise, about a dozen people were inside, waiting for dinner and sipping wine. The warm smell of comfort food wafted from the restaurant. The inn was exactly what I had imagined: creaky wooden floors, wood-beamed ceilings and a living room with cozy couches and a piano.” New York Times October 18, 2009
