Dash through the snow on a sleigh ride vacation
By Aimee Heckel
It’s good enough to write a song about. And not just any song — one of the most renowned holiday songs of our time.
Winter is the perfect time for a sleigh ride.
If you’re craving a sleigh ride vacation, Vermont is the state for you. Here are some of our favorite inspirations for a winter vacation in Vermont:
1. Visit Okemo Valley.
“Jingle Bells” must have been written about the southern Vermont hillsides. Sleigh rides are one of the top winter activities in Vermont — whether it’s for a romantic date or a memorable family excursion.
Stay at a cozy bed and breakfast, like the Golden Stage Inn in Proctorsville. This unique, historic site was originally built in the 1700s as a stagecoach stop. Today, it features excellent, homemade food, animals, fresh honey and more. Tip: You’ve got to try the Saturday Night Chocolate Cake and hot apple cider, two of the Golden Stage Inn’s signature items.

3. Stay at the highly rated Governor’s Inn.
This is a charming, romantic getaway that feels like traveling back in time. No wonder it was listed as one of the 1,000 places to go before you die. Drink tea by the fire, go skiing and relax in the whirlpool tub.
Room start around $144 a night and can go up to $269 for a suite in peak season. It’s worth it, though. The suite has a bed chamber, four-poster bed, gas stove, chaise, whirlpool, TV and more.
