I am from the Boston area and have never really been to Vermont. I saw a piece on Chronicle about Mad River and it looked really nice and peaceful. I am not big into skiing so I am not looking for a ski resort. Mad River looked like a quiet, quaint area that would be a nice place to get away from the rat race for a few days. I'd like to take the wife to a nice place, nice rooms, maybe a little shopping, a sleigh ride, a nice pub and restaurant. I've never really stayed at a bed and breakfast or Inn. As long as the lodging is nice, warm and comfortable and I have my own bathroom, I would be open to something like that. I can't remember the lodging that was featured on Chronicle, but it looked real nice. Are there any Vermont experts out there that can give me some recommendations on where to stay and what to do? If there is some place better than Mad River, I am open to that. The Chronicle piece just really peaked my interest on this area. Valentines Day is just around the corner so this is going to be a last minute thing. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
