From its vibrant fall foliage and white winters to its cool summers and colorful springs, Vermont is the perfect place to take a romantic getaway any time of the year. If you’re wondering why couples flock here, we’ve put together a few of our favorite romantic things to do in Vermont to help you plan the perfect romantic itinerary.
Here’s 5 of the most romantic things to do in Vermont
1. Cruise through one of the romantic towns in Vermont
Vermont is well known for its natural beauty and romantic towns. One of our favorite places is Sunderland, Vermont. Do not miss the incredible Mount Equinox Skyline Drive. The drive features breathtaking vistas that are the perfect backdrop for a picture of you two.

2. Become leaf peeping lovers during the height of Fall
If you’re looking for romantic things to do in Vermont in September or later, go on a Fall foliage adventure with your sweetheart. Every day, from mid-September to late October, Vermont’s trees turn into vibrant displays of oranges, reds, and yellows as they shed their leaves in preparation for winter.

Surrounded by extensive views of the Green Mountains and large trees, the Inn at Ormsby Hill is the perfect place to stay in Manchester Center for leaf peepers. With 10 rooms, this pleasant inn also has impressive gardens onsite. Explore while you stay and you’ll find a labyrinth in the meadow, a cozy gazebo, and more.
3. Experience the magic and intimacy of smaller lodging
The best thing about a bed and breakfast or inn is how personalized the experience is. No chain hotels with the same breakfast each morning and staff that see you only as a room number. When you stay at a smaller lodging accommodation, you’re welcomed like an old friend and treated to a tailored experience. Every couple is different so staying at a bed and breakfast or inn is a great way to experience a vacation that is truly suited to your needs.
Where To Stay: Deerhill Inn in West Dover, Vermont
Featuring all of the charm and personalization you seek, the Deerhill Inn has also been recognized by Condé Nast Traveler Magazine as one of the “Top 25 Chef Owned Inns of North America.” In addition to its delightful cuisine, this foodie inn also has 13 rooms, a welcoming pool, and panoramic views of the scenic Green Mountains.
4. Hit the winter slopes with your sweetheart
While most people say March is the best time to ski in Vermont, it also happens to be the most popular time for families to hit the slopes together so plan a ski trip with your sweetheart a few months earlier to enjoy quieter slopes. Skiing is one of the best romantic things to do in Vermont in December because there’s nothing to distract you from the beautiful scenery and each other.
One of the best places to ski in December is Okemo Mountain Resort, Vermont… but you don’t have to stay at a bustling ski resort to enjoy the slopes. We’ve got another more intimate and relaxing option for you.
Where To Stay: Three Mountain Inn in Jamaica, Vermont
Nestled in the quiet village of Jamaica is the Three Mountain Inn. Although it’s not far from the resort, the peaceful atmosphere makes you feel like you’re many miles away. The Three Mountain Inn offers guests a scenic setting overlooking Vermont’s woodlands and the Jamaica State Park. Each of its 15 guest rooms is the perfect place to host a romantic weekend getaway.
5. Enjoy a country romance complete with full country breakfasts
Sometimes, the best way to reconnect with each other is to get away from everything that’s standing in your way. Give yourself time away from jobs, phones, and whatever else that keeps you in that busy mode. Spending time in nature is a great option for a romantic getaway. If you’re traveling to Vermont, the countryside is a natural choice for a scenic getaway far from any distractions.

Complete with 150 acres of gardens, lawns, woodlands, and meadows, the West Mountain Inn is the ultimate country retreat.
