Winter Getaway Lodging in New England

You might think you have a general idea of what a Winter Getaway in New England might look like. Insider heads-up here: it’s even better and probably a lot more varied that you are expecting. Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts all have their great ski areas, of course, with skiing, snowboarding, rentals, lessons, and lots of indoor entertainment for adults and kids. But you can also step away from the white powder for all kinds of other fun. Guides offer unusual adventures like dog sledding, ski mobile tours, ice fishing, and horse-drawn sleigh rides. Got an appetite? Resorts, hotels and downtowns in every state have unique restaurants cooking up healthy, creative dishes, very often from locally sourced foods. Then there’s the indoor fun: wine tasting, shopping, spa treatments, indoor water parks for the kids, theaters and live music everywhere. Winter also brings frosty festivals, usually with indoor and outdoor entertainments. New England is glorious in the ice-and-snow months!

A wealth of winter activities await you just steps outside your door at the Lake Morey Resort in the snow-capped hills of Vermont.

A nearby trail system (and free equipment) will satisfy every level of cross-country skier or snow-shoer, and alpine skiing is just minutes away. But if you’d prefer soaking in your Jacuzzi while just watching the lake from your spacious suite, that’s OK, too. Other indoor fun ranges from a pool and fitness center to a comfy dining lounge and rooms for cards, billiards and other games. Check out winter specials for New Year’s Eve, Carnival Weekend and ladies’ getaways.

When the weather turns cold, the fun heats up at the Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa in the White Mountains. From your mountain-view room, you can plan your day. Will it be cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snow-tubing or hiking on the 1,700-acre property? Or will you head out for a dog-sledding excursion, ice skating or a visit to Santa’s Village? Shopping in the area’s quaint towns and villages is a treat, but so is coming back to the historic resort for a hearty meal in the tavern or romantic dining in the 1865 Wine Cellar. Thinking about bringing your snowmobile? There’s plenty of parking and miles of easy-on trails.
