There is no better time to plan a visit to Vermont than right now. Ski season is winding down, and resorts are changing their focus to spring/summer activities. Many even offer specials during this interim period between winter and summer seasons. For example, the Green Mountain Inn in Stowe is offering a special midweek (Sun. – Thurs.) price from $123 a night for two. Includes room, daily tea and cookies and breakfast daily. Take a self-guided brewery tour (the Inn provides your kit at check-in) or explore the village of Stowe with its over 70 unique shops. Outdoor enthusiasts may opt for hiking or biking the nearby trails. (Check with Vermont State Parks to determine what trails are open. Some trails may be closed if too muddy to prevent damage to the trail and surrounding vegetation.)
Another spring special is being offered by Sterling Ridge Resort in the Smugglers’ Notch area. This unique resort is made up of individual log cabins with fully-equipped kitchens and cozy woodstoves. Until May 23, you can stay midweek for as little as $155 a night for a one or two-bedroom cabin!
Or for the full “resort” experience, head to Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa in Stowe with savings of 50% off room rates as well as spa specials. This spring special only lasts until May 24, so reserve quickly.
The Essex, Vermont’s Culinary Resort & Spa, in Essex, Vermont in the Burlington area, promises a totally unique resort experience. Your 3-night package for two includes room, dinner credit at the resort’s on-site restaurant, breakfast daily, spa lunch credit daily, private two-hour Vermont Guided Tour, plus $250 spa credit per person and two seats in a Cook Academy class! Perfect at any time of year!
If you want to plan your getaway for a little later this spring, you can still take advantage of special deals. For the golfer, why not try Stratton Mountain Resort in southern Vermont this spring? Book combination lodging and golf starting at only $99/day for two people. This offer is good any day from golf opening day through June 14, 2018. Or midweek (Sunday through Thursday) from June 15 to golf closing day. You’ll love the challenge of Stratton’s 27 holes – the Forest, the Lake, and the Mountain courses.
If your schedule allows, grab the kids and head to the Tyler Place Family Resort in Highgate Springs in the northern Islands & Farms area of Vermont anytime from the end of May to early June for special savings. Early season rates of up to 25% off toward your week-long package include accommodations, three meals a day, child and teen programs, plus full access to all resort activities and facilities. Sail or paddle on the lake or explore nearby nature trails. You might even see local wildlife emerging after the long winter.
