If you're searching for an authentic inn in the heart of a small, quaint Vermont town, consider this Colonial dating from 1840. The three rooms put together by Sara Widness—who happens to be an expert on luxury travel—are cozy, comfortable, and avoid romantic clichés. They are simply adorned with tapestries, antique rugs, claw-foot tubs, comfy sofas, and old bed frames guarding soft linens and a mountain of pillows. The living room hearth, the old wood stove in the
kitchen, and the library nook create a real sense of home.
