Architect Robert Shannon began designing A Stone Wall Inn in the 1970s, creating a modern architectural masterpiece situated on a 12-acre plot in Vermont’s Green Mountains.
Each of the 10 guest rooms is uniquely designed, with floor plans of various geometric shapes and south-facing windows capturing solar heat to warm the space.
A Stone Wall Inn is eco-friendly. The innkeepers don’t use any fossil fuels to heat the inn’s buildings, which are constructed out of environmentally friendly materials.
In the morning, dig into a deluxe continental breakfast of fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, homemade jams, and baked goods. Past dishes have included quiche, scones, zucchini bread, and muffins.
Guests can relax in the lounge, swim in the outdoor pool, or stroll the woodland paths that wend through the gardens and near three ponds.
You can put your $50 dining credit to use at an area restaurant.
Windham, Vermont: Outdoor Recreation in the Green Mountains
Located on the outskirts of Green Mountain National Forest, the quiet town of Windham and the surrounding area are known for their outdoor recreation. In nearby Jamaica State Park, you can swim at Salmon Hole or hike to Hamilton Falls. Whitewater kayakers frequent a section of the West River dubbed The Dumplings, thanks to a series of boulders that create frothy rapids. You can also swim, hike, or fish in the park.
