Wilmington, Vermont, (Mount Snow Region)
Hermitage is located just a bit off the beaten path, nestled into the base
of southern Vermont's Green Mountains and surrounded by acres of lawns and
Open year-round, our guests can experience
an almost endless number of activities in all of Vermont's seasons. Or as
our name implies, The Hermitage can be simply a retreat from the outside
world. The choice is all yours.
Each of the 29 rooms is decorated with a
superior collection of New England antiques; many have working fireplaces.
Everywhere on display is a large collection of lithographs and prints by
well-known artists plus hundreds of antique decoys-a veritable art
Amenities include a clay tennis court,
swimming pool and sauna. These comfortable and informal surroundings speak
again of the meaning: Country Inn, the perfect place for a wedding,
conference or family reunion.
The foundation of a good inn is fine dining
in a gracious manner. Our reputation for good food, well prepared and
served with care, has been widely acclaimed throughout the country in
newspapers, magazines and books: Food Arts Magazine * Wine Cellar * New
York Times * Boston Magazine...
Game birds are featured every evening in
the Chef's Specials, pheasant, goose, wild turkey, duck and partridges. In
spring, we make our own maple syrup in the Sugar House. In Summer, we fire
up the kettles again to make jams, jellies and preserves from local
berries, apples and peaches.
A good wine cellar enhances the enjoyment
of dining. The Hermitage is honored to have received the Grand Award from
the Wine Spectator as having "One of the greatest wine lists in the world"
every year since 1984. Today, our cellar stocks over 40,000 bottles
representing over 2,000 labels. An extensive selection of wines are
available in our Wine and Gift Shop.
A description of the inn would not be
complete without mentioning the wide variety of activities available
throughout the year: golf, hunting, fishing, hiking, boating, swimming,
horseback riding, downhill and cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice
skating and tubing. Visit nearby art and craft shows, sporting events,
country stores and museums. Or simply wander down Vermont's many scenic
and historic back-country roads. Evenings might include a local chamber
music concert or quiet cocktail in our cozy fireplace lounge.
The Hermitage we will be happy to help you
plan a very special vacation or getaway weekend. Come stay awhile, a warm
welcome awaits you.
