Book a Romantic Retreat in Manchester Village, Vermont
Manchester exudes Southern Vermont charm, and it’s more off-the-beaten-path than Burlington, so you won’t have to worry about tourist hordes crowding your scenic mountain Instagram posts. Hike Merck Forest or Mount Equinox, canoe on Emerald Lake, amble along the marble walkways in the town center or ride horses in the Green Mountains. Stay at The Equinox, which is known for their tennis and golf club, and their New England steak and seafood restaurant, The Chop House. Have brunch at The Colonnade, where you can savor eggs benedict within view of Mount Equinox and the Green Mountains.
