The Alpenrose is a warm and friendly country inn. It’s located in southern Vermont in a quiet yet easy-to-reach location less than 10 minutes from the Stratton and Bromley ski areas, 15 minutes from Magic Mountain and 30 minutes south of the slopes of Okemo.
No matter what time of year you visit us, we’ll start your day with our hearty country breakfast. Fresh baked breads and muffins, locally made bacon & sausage, eggs, pancakes – the works!
For those who love shopping, Manchester with its fantastic stores and outlets and the picturesque New England villages of Weston, Grafton, Chester, and Arlington are all only minutes away. Antiquing in this region almost always brings pleasant surprises as there are hundreds of locations along VT routes 7, 30, 11, and 100. There is also an abundance of excellent restaurants just a few minutes from the Alpenrose.
In Winter the downhill skiing opportunities are outstanding. But if cross-country skiing and/or snowshoeing is for you, we have over 15 kilometers of groomed ski trails. Or you can break your own trail through areas of the Green Mountain National Forest. All of this is free and just out the back door.
In Spring & Summer there are three outstanding golf courses less than 15 minutes from the Inn. Take a day hike on the Appalachian Long Trail or spend a wild day at Bromley Mountain’s Alpine Slide, Big Splash water slide and Thrill Zone fun park. Open in summer and in fall, the Long Trail & Bromley are both less than 10 minutes away. If you prefer water sports you may fly fish the famous Battenkill River or one of several magnificent mountain lakes nearby. Canoeing and kayaking opportunities abound.
Then of course there is Vermont’s spectacular Fall Foliage which is all around you in the southern heartland of Vermont.
We are ideally situated for walks or drives to take in the magnificant colors.
Anytime of year … for those who just have the desire to leave the stress, the noise
and the every-day assaults behind for a while
at the Alpenrose Inn you’ll enjoy quiet solitude, breath clean air,
and appreciate the peace that is Vermont.
