The Inn at Round Barn Farm

1661 E. Warren Rd., Waitsfield, Vermont, 05673, USA

A Shaker-style round barn—one of only five in Vermont—is the centerpiece of this bed-and-breakfast, but what you'll remember when you leave is how comfortable your stay was. In winter, you toss your shoes under a bench when you come in and put on a pair of slippers from a big basket: there's magic in that gesture, as it breaks down barriers between guests and invites you to really kick back. The 12 guest rooms inside the 1810 farmhouse have eyelet-trimmed sheets, elaborate four-poster beds, richly colored wallpapers, and brass wall lamps for easy bedtime reading; many have fireplaces and whirlpool tubs. You'll feel like a kid again in the downstairs rec room with its TV, board games, and billiards table; there's also a heated lap pool on the lower level. The inn's resident dog is your guide—literally—as you snowshoe or hike the miles of trails on this beautiful property filled with gardens and sculpture. Plan a winter trip around one of the moonlit snowshoe dinners, which terminate with hot chocolate in an old cabin.
