Sugar House - The Landmark Trust USA - Dummerston, VT
The Landmark Trust USA

707 Kipling Road Dummerston, VT, 05301 Phone: 802-254-6868

Historic Vermont vacation rentals ideal for memorable couple’s getaways

Cue the romance: With its historic Vermont vacation rentals, The Landmark Trust USA has two in particular ideal for a couple’s getaway. The Sugarhouse is a rustic cabin that once served as part of a maple syrup operation (they still tap the nearby maples). The cabin, with a gas-log stove, was a key location for “The Cider House Rules.” It’s close to hiking, biking, skiing – or just relaxing on the screened-in porch. Equally charming is Kipling’s Carriage House, next door to Rudyard Kipling’s Naulakha retreat. It sits on the edge of a forest, above a meadow, with valley views. There’s a gas-log fireplace and ping-pong table. Ask about the Sweet Escape or Green Mountain Getaway packages, that include apple pie, breakfast and snack goodies.

Romantic Vermont inn with mountain views an idyllic retreat for couples

As if Vermont isn’t romantic enough, the Manchester View has several more reasons to make it your go-to place for a couple’s retreat. Tucked in a tranquil valley between the Green and Taconic Mountains, most of the inn’s rooms offer serene mountain views and have rustic, in-season wood- or gas-burning fireplaces as well as one- or two-person spa tubs. You can open your windows to that countryside air, or open your sliding glass door to a private deck or patio, a perfect place to enjoy your complimentary continental breakfast before swimming in the outdoor heated pool or heading out to golf, skiing, horseback and sleigh riding. Ask about adding cake, candy and flowers to your room.
