Why Stay At Castle Hill Resort
Panoramic views, pools, and a spa at a stately estate within an hour's drive of Woodstock, Vermont.
Easy access to ski trails and central Vermont's forested countryside are two reasons to stay at Castle Hill Resort, a cozy hotel on a hillside in Ludlow, an hour south of Woodstock. The other reason? The hotel actually comprises two distinct properties, so it's well suited to any type of traveler. The Castle, a 1902 stone mansion formerly owned by a state governor, is at the heart of the resort, with a mahogany-paneled dining room and 10 guest rooms furnished with four-poster beds and claw-foot tubs. The more family-friendly Pointe Hotel, a contemporary, 96-room hotel steps away, is more casual, with a breakfast-only restaurant and indoor pool. An Aveda spa, gym, and manicured rose gardens round out the experience.
Head to the library on weekends, when a pianist performs American songbook classics and show tunes.
Don't miss the weekend yoga and Pilates classes in the solarium ($10 for 60 minutes); throughout the week, private classes are available on request.
