Experience the magic of a winter countryside with this inn’s horse-drawn sleigh ride

Winter is magical in the mountains of Vermont, and there’s no better way to experience that special feeling than a horse-drawn sleigh ride across glistening snow. You can be part of that quintessential New England activity when you stay at the Mountain Top Resort, a pretty magical place on its own. Stay in a comfortable lodge room, luxurious suite, cabin for two or roomy guest house and plan your winter activities, from cross-country skiing to ice-skating to relaxing in the four-season hot tub. Horse-drawn sleigh rides include 30-minute tours on the 700-acre resort grounds, but private rides are available. Ask about the Sleigh Ride & Dinner Package, which includes a ride and a romantic three-course dinner for two.
