Historical Mansion Tucked in Green Mountain Foothills

At the beginning of the 20th century, Vermont Governor Allen Fletcher hired a team of European craftsmen to build a country house in the foothills of the Green Mountains. With an Old-World aesthetic in mind, the builders tapped into New-World resources, quarrying local stones for the exterior and carving the interior out of woods such as mahogany. They constructed an English Cotswold–style mansion that now functions as Castle Hill Resort and Spa and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Inside, you can still find original elements, such as the grand staircase, carved plaster ceilings, and Tiffany light fixtures. And it makes the perfect home base for ski or snowmobile trips—Okemo Mountain Resort is about four miles away.

An elegant grandfather clock sits outside of the oval-shaped dining room, where executive chef Alphonsus Harris serves French-influenced American cuisine using locally sourced produce and meats. Entrees include beef wellington and slow-roasted rack of lamb.

The hotel's Aveda Concept spa sits apart from the old mansion, inside a historical carriage house. Here, technicians chase stress away with various massages ranging from classic deep-tissue sessions to specialty Black River hot-stone massages and Elemental Nature treatments with aromatherapy.

Of the 10 individually decorated guest rooms, all feature antique and reproduction period furniture. Modern influences vary by room and may include flat-screen TVs, refrigerators, and bathtubs.

Proctorsville, Vermont: Quaint New England Town near Skiing

Proctorsville lies adjacent to Vermont's Okemo Mountain. The family-owned mountain, which has more than 600 acres of generally uncrowded slopes and beginner-friendly trails available in colder months, has maintained its natural beauty by resisting overdevelopment.

Nearby, the town of Ludlow has a diverse culinary landscape that includes classic Italian restaurants, Irish pubs, and steak houses. Boutiques and antique stores welcome window shoppers to feast their eyes on elegant gifts, collectors' items, and local art.

Very nice, but TV only had one channel working.

Beautiful. Comfortable. Convenient to Ludlow and Okemo. Live piano and fireplace.

We had a lovely time (we stayed in the condo with our toddler, and our friends stayed in the Castle) and hope to go back next year for another weekend.
