WINTER WARM UP TO LUXURY
The stars reflecting upon the winter snow light up our country clear skies. Surround yourself with cashmere soft blankets, down duvets, and cozy up to one of our fireplaces. Here, you can delight in the warmth of the Inn, or take advantage of one of our Ski Packages, as well as a blissful massage or spa treatment. Enjoy fabulous shopping and great restaurants. This is also a great time to take advantage of our holiday weekend events such as Martin Luther King Day and Valentines Day, Presidents Day, etc. Our Kent Falls Concierge can arrange any activity or service you wish. The Winter Warm Up Package includes complimentary cocktails with any two or 3 night stay.
WINTER SKI ESCAPES | Dec - March

Mohawk Mountain is offering the Mountain Master Ski Package for $90 (includes lift, rentals, and lessons). Go to www.mohawkmtn.com for details. Another favorite of mine is taking advantage of the cross country ski trails near the Inn and either snowshoeing or skiing amongst thousands of acres of protected land and forest. Back Country Outfitters can outfit you in the rental gear that you will need. In addition to skiing there are my favorite winter hikes. Explore the thousands of acres of protected land at Kent Falls, Pond Mountain and Macedonia Brook State Forest, all within minutes from the inn.
