A romantic stay at a reimagined, historic Vermont country inn, with a full Vermont-style breakfast each morning

A quartet of pillars holds up Four Columns Inn, and this bed-and-breakfast itself is a pillar of Southern Vermont culture. Around since 1965, the property has become a regional icon for its superior level of service and harmony with the surrounding nature. Its 138 acres hold miles of private wooded trails and are close to major ski areas; even the restaurant honors the natural world, having served farm-to-table fare since years before even Alice Waters, considered the pioneer.

The delightfully outdoorsy leisure doesn’t stop here, a large part of why the inn boasts a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence – not to mention a slew of five-star reviews – and is a favorite of Michael Douglas, Mick Jagger and Sting. Special events like live music and winter bonfires with cocoa are just a few other unforgettable experiences that happen here. And you can always head into greater Newfane, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, for more outdoor trails and farm-fresh fare.
