i've posted my itinerary for our honeymoon from ireland on the forum for cape cod and for VT. it's basically this:
8 nights cape cod (chatham, captain's house inn)
4 nights vermont
4 nights boston (eliot suite)
the gap is in vermont. looking for luxury (it's a honeymoon!), importantly to be within daytrips to lake champlain, stowe, woodstock, shelburne (from what i've read)- and to see mountains or lakes or scenery.
really need opinions on accomodation. Top Notch resort is very high on my list at the mo. Cost high but within budget (compared to winter prices). Is the location reasonable to get around?
Inn at Essex i see recommended. but to be honest the room photos aren't enticing me!
Considered Willard St Inn, but very similar to accom in Cape Cod i think, and would love a change. Courtyard Burlington was another consideration.
Twin Farm definitely too dear! Basin Harbor closed or not available.
Please please please give your opinion. I really want this to be perfect - she knows nothing about it.
