Winter in Vermont

Our winter vacation packages let you experience all the wonder of a New England winter. With 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, sauna, and steam room here at the inn.

Enjoy a relaxing dinner or a glass of wine from our Wine Spectator Award-winning list in front of one of our fireplaces. Schedule your winter weekend or weekday at Swift House Inn!
