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!

Other indoor fun ranges from a pool and fitness center to a comfy dining lounge and rooms for cards, billiards and other games.
