Top 10 Winter Things to Do in Vermont

Vermont is the ultimate snow lover’s destination. The weather is gorgeous, the skiing is terrific, and our Vermont bed and breakfast is oh so cozy. There is no shortage of fun things to do, so pour yourself a piping hot cup of cocoa and peruse our top 10 list.

Go Skiing

Did you know that Vermont boasts the longest snow season in the East? If skiing is your thing, Vermont is your place! Start planning your ski trip now. Killington and Okemo are both incredible nearby skiing areas and some of our top recommendations for places to fly down the mountain. (Look forward to having our cozy inn to come back to after a long day on the slopes!)

Snowshoe Around Our Expansive Property

If skiing is a bit fast for you or you’re interested in a more leisurely snow activity, showshoeing is the perfect option. It’s a great little workout and the perfect way to take in the beautiful nature scenes of winter that our property boasts. Walking and hiking is also a lot of fun, but snowshoeing has a special uniqueness you can only experience in the powdery white Vermont snow.

Go Antique Shopping

Searching for unique treasures is always a great joy and lucky for us (and you!) we are located near some of the best and most charming antique shops. If your winter stay takes place before the holidays, you are sure to find some lovely gifts for friends and family. Make an afternoon of it! View Our Favorite Antique Shops Nearby

Get Cozy By the Fire

Our quaint inn is warm and cozy like your favorite hot winter beverage. Look forward to spending time in our roomy living room with an antique brick fireplace that is always roaring during the winter months. Cuddle up on the couch with your love and enjoy a glass of wine or play a game of chess as the fire crackles calmly in the background.

Escape Into a Good Book

Did you know we have our own little library at our bed and breakfast? We do, and we welcome it to all our guests to enjoy anytime. Winter is a particularly nice time to curl up with a great page-turner and get lost between the pages.

Savor Hot Breakfasts Each Morning

Your winter getaway wouldn’t be complete without a hot breakfast each and every morning of your stay. After a peaceful night of sleep, awake to a piping hot cup of coffee and an exceptional three course country breakfast. Enjoy in our sunlit conservatory from 8:00-9:30am. Learn More About Breakfast at Our Inn

Attend a Unique Local Event

Our town and its surrounding area is more than just another Vermont town – it’s special! We look forward to welcoming you to the place we call home and hope you might find the Shrewsbury area to be your home away from home. This winter, enjoy a fantastic laser light show in Ludlow with Okemo’s Let It Glow Laster Show and Fireworks on January 13. You will also not want to miss the Okemo Shakin’ Skate Night if ice skating with a live DJ sounds like fun to you! This rockin’ event will be January 14.
