My wife and I stayed at West Mountain Inn for her birthday (Dec. 23-24) on our way to CT. We spent the early part of the day in Manchester (just a few minutes north) and had lunch at the Equinox.Between the Equinox and WM Inn we really got into the Christmas spirit (think of all those old romantic movies about Christmas at a Vermont Inn).
We arrive at 4 pm and were very pleased with our room. They first took us on a tour of the inn before we settled in. One thing that was a particular delight was dinner. We ate at the inn which attracts quite an outside, local clientele. Dinner was great and everything was changed to our room which - another surprise - we found to be very reasonable at checkout time. The Inn is gorgeous and the staff was great. After dinner we enjoyed an evening in front of the fireplace and just sipped wine, talked and enjoyed the Christmas music. We live on the Vermont border in upstate NY and spend a lot of time in VT. This is my best bet for a reasonably price, romantic stay with a great restaurant and ambiance.When do folks nowadays just get to slow down and smell the roses. This is the place I'd recommend to do it.
My wife said it was her best birthday ever.
