So the winter months are upon us and I thought it would be a good time to take a look at bed and breakfasts around the world offering winter entertainments. First up is Northern Vermont’s, city of Stowe.
Stowe is a year-round resort town located in Northern Vermont. Visitors from all over the world come to Stowe to enjoy the New England charm, stunning scenery, and endless activities. This area is famous for its world-class ski areas on Mt. Mansfield and Spruce Peak. Stowe hosts numerous festivals to highlight the sport including Spring Summit Celebration and the 61st Annual Sugar Slalom - one of the oldest and most esteemed races in the U.S. Visitors looking for milder winter activities can enjoy skating on frozen ponds or simply strolling along the Stowe Recreation Path.

So we are a few days into Fall. I love this season; everything starts to slow down, we all start to cook a little differently, and watch the season change from the greens of summer to the spectacular colors of fall. I have to admit, when I think of fall color, New England comes to mind first. What better way to celebrate the season than to visit a New England inn or bed and breakfast. Get ready to relax in the season and take in some spectacular color.

East Hampton is a historic village offering visitors a glimpse to the past - majestic old elms, green expanses, windmills - of the English, not Dutch variety - and the famous Town Pond with its picturesque swans and a 300-year-old cemetery. Close by are many charming boutiques, antique shops, art galleries, and world-class restaurants and gourmet food shops. For the sports enthusiast there is world-class saltwater fishing, sailing, surfing, golf, tennis, hiking and horseback riding. And, of course, there are the beaches; the ocean beaches in the Hamptons are considered some of the most beautiful in the world, with mile after mile of pristine sand, dunes and pounding surf.
