6 Days | 5 Nights
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Experience the beautiful country and fine foods in New England’s farm belt of Vermont. With dairying in decline, the hardy family farms had to rely on their ingenuity to stay alive — with delicious results! Explore New England foods, maple products, cider and the creation of culinary pleasures. Meet with local chefs, cheese makers, maple tappers and entrepreneurs who demonstrate the quality and artistry of Vermont foods, as well as a passion and drive that has re-invented the state from sleepy dairy region to an avant-garde, savory destination.


• Learn about the production and sample some of the goodies of several area culinary artisans and growers.
• See firsthand demonstrations of gourmet perfection with the inn’s acclaimed Austrian chef.
• Get the inside scoop on how Vermonters developed a unique culture of sustainability, freshness and craftsmanship.
