Embark on Quintessential Outdoor Fun

Take in the winter ambiance from the back of a horse-drawn carriage, explore the trails with some cross-country skiing or snowshoeing, and let out your inner kid with some snow tubing fun down their dedicated hill. It’s a great place to spend a day enjoying everything the outdoors has to offer with a little something for everyone, no matter your skill level! Head back to the inn afterward for warm drinks and a cozy atmosphere, perfect for reflecting on the day’s many activities.

Wine & Dine at 1801 Tavern
The 1801 Tavern is your place to be for delicious dishes prepared using only the freshest local ingredients as a proud “farm-to-table” establishment. Our menu rotates seasonally and you can look forward to New England-inspired meals taking cues from whatever season we happen to be in. Winter places an emphasis on hearty offerings with warm flavors and plenty of seasonal spices as the fruits of the harvest make their way from farm to plate. Stop in for a satisfying post-ski meal and warm up or have a romantic candlelit dinner with wine.
Check Off Your Holiday Shopping List
Our cozy Vermont inn is located not too far from some great shops to visit and peruse! Visit our very own Grafton Village Cheese Shop for a tasty, authentically made treat to bring home.
