Dorset is a quintessential New England town, dotted with cozy homes and shops tucked into forested mountains and valleys. Visitors perusing the region's stores are bound to come away with a haul of fresh cheeses, local maple syrup, and warm woolens.

The Green Mountains, a branch of the ancient Appalachians stretching across Vermont, draw their name from the layers of stately conifers carpeting the range's slopes. Although itself ensconced deep in this undulating verdure, Chittenden also lies in range of a number of maintained wildlife-management areas and the expanse of the Green Mountain National Forest, opening infinite vistas for hiking, mountain biking, and game hunting. In winter, the towering peaks of Killington and Pico ski areas send snow buffs swooping down latticed networks of trails or flipping through freestyle zones. The Coolidge and Okemo State Forests are about an hour away by car.For a taste of history, lodgers can make their way toward the nearby towns of Killington and Rutland, both of which unfurl charters dating to 1761, before the creation of Vermont itself. From September 2 to 11, Rutland parades taffy pulls, pig races, and crossroads-conquering fiddlers at the Vermont State Fair. Throughout the remainder of the year, multiple weekly farmers markets studded with Vermont maple syrup and alpaca weavings array wares downtown, alongside frequent outdoor concerts and other family-friendly events, many of them free.Though The Mountain Top Inn & Resort sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
