Enjoy Fall Foliage at Vermont’s Luxury Equinox Resort
Equinox Resort & Spa
The Equinox is a luxury golf resort and spa located in Manchester Village, Vermont. The resort, which dates back to 1769, underwent a complete redesign in 2008.
This luxurious 195-room resort, which includes both the Orvis Inn and the 1811 House, is a luxurious year-round destination that’s nestled on 1,300 acres of pristine countryside all within just a four-hour drive of New York and Boston .
The Equinox offers Falconry, Land Rover off-road driving, Orvis fly fishing, mountain biking/hiking, archery, horseback riding, and a 13,000 square-foot full-service resort spa with pool, nearby skiing at Bromley and Stratton as well as the Golf Club at The Equinox, an18-hole championship golf course with mountain views.
In addition to the above activities, there is no better place to enjoy Vermont’s amazing fall foliage. See a vibrant array of leaf colors from the Equinox Resort & Spa.
Vermont’s Equinox resort offers its guests a fine dining experience and features two new culinary outlets – the Chop House and Falcon Bar, as well as new outdoor fire pit veranda.
Equinox Resort & Spa
You can find several stay packages that are suited for every kind of traveler; family, business, leisure or affordable luxury.
Orvis Pet Series
This summer, the resort introduces an enhancement of our existing pet-friendly program, ‘Orvis Pet Experience at The Equinox.’ Guests bringing their four-legged friends can enjoy amazing Orvis amenities including a dog bed, a leash and a mat for dogs of all sizes. The resort will also have Orvis paw plungers available, so those guests without four legged friends will not be fazed by paw prints!
Cow Power 2010
On July 1st the resort partnered with Central Vermont Public Service’s Cow Power™ program, which promotes development and reliance on renewable energy in Vermont generated from cow manure. The Equinox’s 1811 House and Cottage is now fully powered by cow manure. The cows are staying at a local farm and the electricity is imported by the resort. One cow’s waste can produce enough electricity to light two 100-watt light bulbs 24 hours a day; it will take approximately 62 cows to meet the electricity needs of the 1811 House and Cottage.
Farmer’s Dinner Series
A unique dining experience comes to the Equinox resort with the 2010 Farmer’s Dinner Series, where local farmers will share the story of the meal as it unfolds. On Friday October 29, guests can experience the best of Vermont ’s fall harvest for $50 per person. A full weekend package including a stay at the hotel along with the Farmer’s Dinner is also available.
The Equinox resort is planning their second weekend of luxury, just for the ladies, with the ‘Perfect Girls Getaway Weekend’ November 19th. Women of all ages can enjoy a weekend of shopping, makeovers, Pilates and fine dining starting at only $224 a person.
Apple Cider Donuts
This past winter we introduced homemade donuts to the amazing culinary options at The Equinox. This has long been a goal for Executive Chef Jeffrey Russell, as one of his fondest memories from growing up in Vermont was driving to the local apple orchard and watching the cider doughnuts be made and eating them warm. His wish came true; we now have a donut machine that makes 114 donuts per hour! Guests can enjoy the proprietary Equinox Apple Cider donuts at the breakfast buffet, or purchase them in the gift shop.
