Room with a View

If you’re looking for a few more amenities while you enjoy the season, Seyon Lodge offers a retreat Teddy Roosevelt would have been sure to enjoy. The recreational opportunities in Groton State Forest are unparalleled winter or summer. There are 4.9 miles of groomed cross-country ski trails for your family’s use.

Additionally, thousands of acres beckon to be discovered on snowshoes right outside the front door of the lodge. Then, when you’re done with your adventure, completely relax next to the fire and then retreat to the dining room for a wonderful evening meal. The meals have even been known to draw the locals out from their warm homes and down the snowy roads! After you awake to your breakfast, the friendly Innkeepers will be happy to direct you to all the exciting opportunities the area has to offer. Seyon Lodge, without a doubt, offers a winter get-away you will never forget.

A whole new world of recreational opportunities presents itself when the snow falls in Vermont. Even in winter, there are great things happening in Vermont State Parks. All park lands are open and available for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and lots of other winter activities. In fact, two fantastic winter parks are in full swing. The Stone Hut on the top of Mt. Mansfield and Seyon Ranch in Groton are surrounded by the perfect environment for all your winter adventures.

The Stone Hut is a rustic single room cabin that offers winter camping with the opportunity for first tracks on the slopes in the morning. While not far from the bustling activity of Stowe, its sits among the wind swept firs and the uninterrupted night sky. You can hike, ski or ride the lift up then settle into a warm cozy cottage built by the nation’s ski pioneers with the help of the Civilian Conservation Corps. You’ll enjoy a quiet night with family

or friends by the fire and you certainly will not miss the electricity, TV or phone as you settle into your bunk with dreams of the next day’s winter adventure. Whether your plans include back country skiing, ice climbing, snow shoeing along the highest peak in the state, or the preeminent downhill skiing in the East are sure to be surrounded by the best terrain and scenery in the state. Your stay will certainly result in great adventures, great memories and a great desire to return again next year for a stay in the historic Stone Hut.
