The epitomes of tradition al elegance and personal comfort, your accommodations are a perfect complement to the rich history and natural beauty of the Green Mountains. The townhouses feature fireplaces, fully equipped kitchens, porches and mountain views. For comfort and rustic style, they offer The Green Mountain Suite. And from the two-story Dwight Eisenhower Suite, you can enjoy a bird's eye view of the historic village and mountains, and a comfortable four-poster, canopied bed.


Eating and drinking at the Equinox is an extraordinary experience. Their new Chop House restaurant features the finest cuts of steak, grilled to perfection. While at the new Falcon Bar, enjoy gourmet chocolates and locally-sourced cheeses paired with an extensive wine list or one of their single malt scotches' or step out on their deck to enjoy a beautiful Vermont evening.
