Where to stay in Vermont

My husband and I are planning an anniversary trip to Vermont in Mid-November for 3 nights. We want to stay someplace quaint that has character, and not very touristy. Any suggestions? There are so many little towns that all look nice.

We would love to find a small cabin rental or boutique hotel but not one of the resorts to stay.

Morning divindaze,

Woodstock VT is the real thing with original character and in November will be mass tourist free! Check out www.woodstockvt.com the village website.

There are a few lodging options that would qualify as 'boutique' and many cabins in the hills around that you could rent. You will find a National Park, several galleries, a Vermont top 10 sight to see (Marsh Billings) and many local restaurants and even an eco brewery just west of the village (LongTrail).

If you wish to take a day trip by car most sights are accessible in under 2 hours to either Burlington or Bennington/Brattleboro and route 100 should be the road of choice to travel on.

Happy planning.

not really sure what difference there may be in your mind between a boutique hotel as opposed to an Inn or b and b.

If flying into Burlington, then certainly look in the northern Vt area but if you are flying into Albany, then southern vt makes sense with Dorset, Jamaica, Peru, Newfane among many relatively non touristy areas. From Boston, you could head north or south. Here are a couple of places to just give you an idea.

These are just a very few great places to stay. You should go to your local book store and check out books like frommers and others for more suggestions as well as check the lodging reviews to the upper left.

We are driving so don't have to worry about flying into airports. We can really go anywhere.

As far as the boutique hotel I mean smaller, qaint hotels but my husband doesn't like B&B because he likes more privacy.

Any suggestions?

I have looked at the Frommers site as well as Trip Advisor but find there so many choices it overwhelming. I like to get a bit more input from people that have visited the areas.

did you check out the suggestions already made?

One of the nicest hotels IMHO is the Equinox in Manchester.
