This New England village offers first-rate lodging, from luxurious to laidback.
After a day on the slopes at Ascutney, Killington or Okemo, the timeless village of Woodstock, settled by railroad and banking barons in 1768, remains one of New England's most charming retreats. Though not slopeside—the ski resorts are 10, 17 and 25 miles away, respectively—Woodstock's architecturally rich main street, flanking a central square known as the Village Green, offers a historic twist on a Vermont ski and stay. Settle into one of the vintage brick homes or restored Victorians converted into cozy hotels and B&Bs.
The Osprey at Beaver Creek, A RockResort, formerly known as the Inn at Beaver Creek, is undergoing a $7-million transformation this summer and will be relaunched as RockResorts' newest addition in time for the 2008-2009 ski season. The 41-room hotel, owned by RockResorts, is situated in the heart of the village of the world-class Beaver Creek Resort.
