Equinox Resort Spa, VT (and Backroad Discovery Tours)

10 Nov

Wonderful experience.  I stayed in a townhome which was easily accessible to everything.  It was huge with a modern, sleek design. It has balcony overlooking the mountains and fully equip kitchen.

The service was outstanding, making restaurant reservations for us and shuttling to and from.  The town itself is full of outlets, so we did plenty of shopping.  Our visit happen to fall upon restaurant week, so we took full advantage of that as well.

I didn’t use the actual spa services, but I definitely got use out of the gym, indoor pool, and jacuzzi located outside.  I regret not taking a in-the-pool fitness class which was no extra charge.  The resort gives you the fluffiest robes to lounge in!

The main building has a restaurant (which I didn’t try because it was pricey) and two bars.  They plan activities but my favorite was drinking by the bonfire.

They make the BEST apple cider doughnuts you will ever taste.

And if you are staying in the area you HAVE to check out Backroad Discovery Tours. I loved the tour guide; she was more like a friend.  We touched upon everything we hoped for, like local histories as well as syrup tasting and cheddar cheese! We even got to play with animals.  I definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the area. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes!

Great escape from the city congestion, and a wonderful long week to take in the fall.  Or have a wedding! Keep an eye out- this place is always popping up on TravelZoo.
