In Green Mountain National Forest, 5½ miles off a mountain pass on a dirt road, you'll find this secluded inn with lush gardens and a pond with a wood-fired sauna on its bank. Many rooms have views of the mountains; all are furnished with antiques and quilts. Homemade cookies are plentiful. The restaurant prepares a four-course prix-fixe menu nightly, filled with local Vermont ingredients such as cider-glazed pork loin and maple-roasted squash. The grounds are gorgeous,
and there's lots to do if you're into nature: biking, hiking, and a cross-country ski center with 43 miles of trails.

If you're looking for a cookie-cutter B&B, this is not the place for you. Tony Clark, the innkeeper, presides over the most charmingly rustic inn to grace the mountains of New England. The food is sublime and the hiking trails are fab (you can link up to the Long Trail...right out the back door of the inn!) A truly unique experience, not for those out to get Marriott points.
