Less than 3 miles south of the hotel, Manchester Center has tree-lined sidewalks lined with designer outlets, fine antique shops, and independent bookstores housed in colonial clapboard buildings.

Stratton Mountain Resort is located on southern Vermont’s highest peak, about 17 miles southeast of The Inn at Willow Pond. Its slopes feature 92 trails and a high-speed base-to-summit gondola. For a memorable cross-country skiing or snowshoeing trip, head to Hildene, the early 20th-century home of Robert Todd Lincoln, President Lincoln’s son. In the winter, Hildene’s trails transform into Nordic ski tracks, and there are snowshoe and ski rentals onsite.
