Winter in Vermont
Our winter vacation packages let you experience all the wonder of a New England winter. Winter in Vermont is never more alluring than after a layer of freshly fallen snow; the air is clean and crisp making it an ideal location for any outdoor activity like skiing, snowshoeing or just watching the snow fall. After a long day on the slopes at one of the 19 alpine ski areas or 30 cross-country centers across the state, our guests come back to their rooms and enjoy the fireplaces, jetted tubs, sauna, and steam room here at the inn.
Enjoy a relaxing dinner or a glass of wine from our Wine Spectator list in front of one of our fireplaces. Now is the time to schedule your winter weekend or weekday here at the Swift House Inn.
