Arrival Experience

The resort now has a completely redone arrival area, with a newly landscaped driveway and new lobby. Additionally, the building has been rotated to maximize mountain views. 


The resort now has two new restaurants, The Roost and Flannel. The Roost is the property's casual bar experience, focusing on local beer and small plates. Nice touches - the menu at The Roost has annotations from the chef, and an indoor shuffleboard table proved to be a popular local attraction.

Flannel is the property's update to the previous Norma's restaurant. It serves local Vermont cuisine in an indoor / outdoor space that looks out over the properties' central courtyard and over the surrounding mountains. 


The resort's new guestrooms have undergone a top-to-bottom overhaul, with local artwork and naturally-inspired furnishings. 


Programs at the property's spa are now organized around four Pathways to Wellness, which group treatments into easily understandable categories. The Discovery Pathway, which is aimed at guests new to spas, offers a wide selection of services designed to help a guest hone in on their preferences. The Active Pathway is for sports enthusiasts and focuses on fitness goals. The Revive Pathway has anti-aging and beauty treatments, and the Restorative Pathway is for those guests who just want to relax. 

Wedding and Event Spaces

The property's event spaces have likewise undergone a full renovation. The ballroom and indoor meeting spaces have new windows for increased natural light and new AV equipment. The new outdoor space in the property's central courtyard has mountain views, fire pits, a broad lawn and a bocce ball court.
