Historical Vermont Inn in Continual Operation Since Late 18th Century

The Dorset Inn, which welcomed its first guests in 1796, is one of the oldest continually operating inns in Vermont. Today, after more than 200 years and several renovations, the inn continues to evince an aura of quaint New England charm. Period furnishings and wide-planked floors distinguish the living rooms, restored tavern, and candlelit dining room. In December 2011, the inn's old-fashioned coziness and attention to detail helped it earn the No. 3 spot on Yankee Magazine's list of New England's Best Historic Inns.

Each of the individually decorated guest rooms combines the warmth and comfort of a country cottage in the Green Mountains with modern-day amenities such as flat-screen TVs, wireless Internet access, and electric maple-syrup dispensers. Meals served in the dining room are composed of ingredients culled from local farmers and the nearby Atlantic Ocean. The menu changes frequently, but wild shrimp, mussels, and cobbler with vanilla ice cream are always on hand. The tavern pours selections from a wide-ranging wine list as well as single-malt scotch, Irish whiskey, and bourbon.

Dorset, Vermont: Traditional New England Town Surrounded by Forested Mountains

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 slopes of Stratton and Bromley mountains supply ample opportunities for skiing, snowboarding, and downhill speed dating. Ice skating, snowmobiling, and sleigh rides round out the area's wintertime offerings.
