Staycation or Workcation: Take a break from routine in the lap of New England luxury

Working from home has its compensations, but those same walls do get tedious after a while. Fortunately, lodgings in New England’s beautiful regions have risen to this need with the concept of the staycation or workcation. What’s that, you ask? It is a getaway (with your computer in tow) to a bright, comfortable, luxurious hotel or inn where advanced WiFi and ample working space allow you to knock out some work during the day, and to enjoy vacation-style pleasures morning, mid-day, and night. Imagine waking up in a luxury suite with in-room fireplace and view of the mountains and then relaxing over a fresh breakfast (that you did not prepare), before hitting the keyboard for a few hours. At mid-day and in the evening, break away for a spa treatment or swim in the pool without leaving the building. Many New England inns also offer equipment and outdoor places for a refreshing hour or two of skiing, snowshoeing, ice-skating, or a simple, brisk walk. Dining is guaranteed to be the best quality, from fresh local ingredients. How is that for a motivation to get the workday out of the way?
