Three Top Places to See Fall Foliage at its Best in Vermont

While many places across the world enjoy some semblance of fall foliage, there are the few, select destinations that are heralded for inspiring colors, views and landscapes offered as autumn arrives. Among the most prevalent of all must-see fall foliage destinations is Vermont.

While Vermont is the Green Mountain State (as its name suggests), those endless seas of greens burst into colorful blossoms like fireworks as September approaches. During the fall, looking out onto any of Vermont’s endless hilly vistas is a lot like looking at a finely crafted patchwork quilt. Swaths of oranges, reds, yellows and greens blanket the surroundings and show leaf-peepers the true majesty of Mother Nature.

Leaf peeping in Vermont should be on everyone’s list of things to do. When you do decide to book your trip, your goal should be to find a destination that provides you the most value for your investment. The three destinations outlined below offer visitors to Vermont an authentic, luxurious experience certain to make this trip one of your most memorable.


Twin Farms – Barnard, VT

Nestled conveniently between Vermont’s two major highways (I-89 and I-91) and just east of one of the state’s most glorious mountain ranges is the town of Barnard, the setting for Twin Farms.

Twin Farms offers a five-star experience across 300 acres designed to help you relax and recharge. Traveling to coveted leaf-peeping locales is as easy as hopping on I-89, I-91 or SR-4, but Twin Farms’ guests benefit from jaw-dropping views right from where they lay their head. Twin Farms’ seasonal meals incorporate the property’s own herbs, and are complemented by vintages from a 26,000-bottle-wine cellar. Spa treatments, an art gallery and more help to make this one of the most sought after destinations in the Northeast.

Enjoy Twin Farms with these added benefits

While guests of Twin Farms will enjoy a wide range of luxurious offerings, those who book their travel with Travel With Stephanie (A Virtuoso Travel Advisor) will get these added perks:

  1. A bottle of Dom Perignon champagne  (upon arrival)
  2. A selection of homemade artisan chocolates (upon arrival)
  3. Daily complimentary breakfast for two
  4. Upgrades (if available) at the time of check-in


Stowe Mountain Lodge – Stow, VT

Skiers and snowboarders flock to Stowe each winter for the town’s convenient location to the state’s best trails. But before the snow begins to fall, these trails are home to fall foliage that’s known to leave visitors breathless.

Bed and breakfasts are plentiful in Stowe. However, few places are as remarkable or luxurious as Stowe Mountain Lodge. Its pristine location at the base of Mount Mansfield (and minutes from the heart of downtown Stowe) makes this resort a four-season destination known around the globe. The resort features world-class golfing, luxury rooms, and interior furnishings made by Vermont artisans, including an exclusive line of Simon Pearce “Stowe Lamps.”

  1. $100 lodge credit
  2. Daily complimentary breakfast for two
  3. Upgrades (if available) at the time of check-in


The Pitcher Inn – Warren, VT

Most people who visit Vermont overlook the small town of Warren, VT, located in the heart of Mad River Valley.  But if off-the-beaten path is what you’re in search of, you’ll find what you’re after in Warren.

Despite its distance from either of the two VT interstate highways, Warren is a fairly populated town, thanks to the reputation of nearby Sugarbush. Sugarbush and its neighboring mountains become the focal point of Mad River Valley come fall. It’s as though the hills come alive in the weeks leading up to the first freeze. It’s a moment you don’t want to miss.

The Pitcher Inn is the ideal resort for leaf peepers. Just 15 minutes from Mad River Glen, three miles from Sugarbush, and directly across from the historic Warren Store, The Pitcher Inn has perhaps the best location in all of Mad River Valley for out-of-town visitors.

Experience The Pitcher Inn with These Complimentary Luxuries

As a Virtuoso property, The Pitcher Inn provides an added value for visitors who book through a Virtuoso Travel Advisor (such as Travel With Stephanie), including:

  1. Dinner for two
  2. Daily complimentary breakfast for two
  3. Upgrades (if available) at the time of check-in
