Historic Resort in Vermont Countryside
The Inns at Equinox occupy 30 newly renovated townhouses.Though located on the history-soaked grounds of The Equinox Resort, the inns have a fresh, contemporary look, thanks to bright splashes of color, stylish light fixtures, and photographs of the surrounding Vermont countryside taken by local artists.
The resort sits on 1,300 wooded acres abounding with opportunities for both leisurely and active pursuits. The rocky terrain accommodates Land Rover Experience Driving School classes year-round, and the British School of Falconry lessons take place about a mile from the hotel. The resort’s onsite spa houses a shimmering 75-foot turquoise pool surrounded by loungers and statuary. Body treatments and steam rooms help unknot muscles, and an elaborate 24-hour fitness center treats exercisers to views of the grounds. With this Getaway, you’ll receive a credit you can apply toward a spa massage or greens fees at the resort’s award-winning golf course.
