Summer Fun

Summer is a beautiful time in Vermont. It is not called the Green Mountain State for nothing. Everything is green and lush and it is a great time for mountain biking and hiking in the mountains. There are lakes and rivers for swimming, fishing, boating, kayaking or to just sit around with a good book. Why not go for a swim in Lake Raponda or rent a boat at Harriman Reservoir.

Summer is also the prime time for golf. There are three 18-hole golf courses within minutes away from the Inn.

Looking for adventure?  Try the Deerfield Valley Canopy Tour, a unique aerial trek through the forest canopy of the northern Berkshires via zip line.  Bridges and rappels take you to platforms high above the forest floor offering participants an unparalleled view of the forest and surrounding countryside.

Or stroll through galleries and shops in the valley or visit the weekend flea markets in Wilmington or Newfane.

Fall Foliage

Autumn in Vermont cannot be described — it simply has to be experienced. Foliage season is spectacular and in addition to the magnificent sights it is the perfect weather to enjoy the outdoors.

Why not take a scenic chairlift to experience the beautiful colors of nature or go for a hike.

Take a bike ride on one of the country roads and see the beauty of nature up close. Visit one of the many country fairs, auctions and antique shops around in the valley.

After a day fun filled day there are a variety of restaurants to choose from for your dining experience. We will gladly give you recommendations and make reservations.

Winter Snow

Located just minutes from Mount Snow and nearby Stratton Mountain, the Gray Ghost Inn is a great place to base your winter ski vacation.  Whether you ski, snowboard, or just soak up the atmosphere, you’ll find plenty to keep you busy.

In winter months, the Gray Ghost Inn provides comfortable and cozy quarters for all its guests, including our friendly lounge where you can warm yourself by the fire and chat with other guests.  Our relaxed setting is the perfect place to wrap-up your snow day.

Spring Scenes & Scents

Spring in Vermont is a glorious season. There are beautiful flowers blooming and the greenery gets greener in the mountains every single day. Pleasant days and cool nights can lead to some of the finest weather of the year for exploring Vermont.

Come at the beginning of the season to see and taste maple syrup being tapped, boiled, and bottled for the coming year; come a bit later for some of the first farmers’ markets.  Whenever you plan your trip, you’ll find Spring in Vermont will put a spring in your step.
