Inn Activities

Four Seasons, For Everyone! We have so many amenities to keep you busy right here, you may not even want to leave the inn during your stay!

We created the inn with the vision of making it a spot for people to unpack, and just unwind. We know how hectic it can be to go on vacation, the feeling that you have to keep going to different locations to experience different things. But here at the Wildflower Inn, you can pick a few activities to do each day, relax, and enjoy the extra time you have by not traveling from place to place. If you feel you want to go exploring, don't pack up! Just head out on a day-trip to one of Vermont's great attractions, Northern New Hampshire's White Mountains, or even explore Southern Quebec.

With the changing of the seasons comes a list of new amenities for you to enjoy right here at the Inn. In the summer, you might enjoy swimming in our heated outdoor pool, an invigorating mountain bike ride on the Kingdom Trails, a leisurely stroll thru the gardens or longer hike on our foot trails. In the winter,  try skating on our outdoor rink, nordic skiing, snow-shoeing, Fat Tire Biking, or sledding on the best sledding hill around!
