Storied Inn and Spa in the Heart of New England

If walls could talk, the ones in Snapdragon Inn would recite passages from the classics of American literature. Maxwell Perkins, the celebrated editor who elevated Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald to fame, once lived in what is now Snapdragon Inn. Built in 1815, the brick home recently underwent renovations that transformed it into an elegant inn and spa. The luxury boutique hotel preserves its literary roots with a wood-paneled library and en suite book collections. Throughout the property, chic decor recalls the glamour of Perkins's 1920s heyday.

Food & Wine magazine named Snapdragon Inn one of America's Best Bed and Breakfasts in 2011. Each of the eight available guest rooms has an updated look—the pastel walls are broken up by large colonial windows, from which sunlight spills across custom-upholstered armchairs and Victorian-style bed benches. The vibe extends to adjoining bathrooms, which have radiant floor heating.

Steps away from the guest rooms, Snapdragon Spa pampers its clients with organic products and lush spa robes. Stop here for a relaxation massage or a cleansing facial, a 50-minute treatment that uses sweet milk and botanicals to improve and balance your complexion.

Windsor, Vermont: Charming Riverfront Town Steeped in History

Located near Vermont's New Hampshire border, Snapdragon Inn stands along Windsor's Main Street among quaint antique stores and notable historical buildings. Take a stroll across the Cornish-Windsor Covered Bridge, which stretches nearly 450 feet across the Connecticut River—making it one of the longest covered bridges in America.

Just down the street from Snapdragon Inn sits the restored 18th-century tavern known as the Old Constitution House. The pub-turned-museum looks nearly the same as it did some 200 years ago, when the first state constitution prohibiting slavery was signed there. Nearby, at Simon Pearce, a glass-blowing factory, artists show off their labor-intensive craftsmanship to studio visitors.
