Hotels >The Equinox Golf Resort & Spa, Vermont
A great place for families. A week of conference time was made much better by this setting. My kids even ate the satay chicken. Had a Mother's Day brunch in their well-appointed restaurant that was quite special. It is hard to pick just one small detail out as everything about this place was well done. We even got to see a falcon lecture inside the hotel !!
An endless array of activities in a historic, all-American setting..
With suites named after former guests, such as Mary Todd Lincoln, it's no wonder this resort is on the National Register of Historic Places. Its oldest building is the 1769 Marsh Tavern. It is surrounded by the Green and Taconic mountains on 2,300 acres that include the 900-acre Equinox Preservation Trust, where guests can cross-country ski. The property does a steady year-round business and is particularly busy during holidays. Autumn draws guests who come to see the changing of the leaves.
The 183 guest rooms and suites include accommodations in the historic inn and those in the Charles Orvis Inn, former home to the founder of the Orvis company. The Charles Orvis Inn has a boardroom, billiard room and private concierge, making it perfect for executive retreats. Restaurants include the Colonnade Dining Room for fine dining and the Dormy Grill for casual fare such as weekend lobster fests. The list of activities is seemingly endless: championship golf on the Gleneagles Golf Course, falconry, archery, fly-fishing and ice skating. Kids will find pursuits such as Junior Off Road, while more adult offerings include the Avanyu Spa.
