Take a Hike with a Sunrise View or Take a Dip by a Waterfall:

Take a hike with a Vermont sunrise view. If you prefer a more relaxing approach to a fabulous view, take a ride on the Stowe Gondola to the top of Mount Mansfield. Either way, order a picnic before you head out from our Vermont bed and breakfast to make the most of your time at the summit.

When you're ready to cool off from your adventures, head to Warren Falls, where you can swim at the base of the falls or, for the daredevils among you, jump off of several popular cliffs ranging from 10'-20' in height. Whichever option you choose, you will have the perfect ambiance and dreamy backdrop for a romantic adventure.

Explore the Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Factory:

Unleash your inner child with a fun and delicious tour of the famous Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Factory. Share laughs and sample a variety of whimsical flavors of ice cream, adding a sweet note to your romantic weekend. Don't forget to snap a photo of you both on a Ben and Jerry's ice cream container. 

Indulge in a Gourmet Dinner at Hen of the Wood or Michael's on the Hill:

No romantic weekend is complete without a fine dining experience, and Waterbury offers two outstanding options. Book a table at Hen of the Wood, one of Vermont's top-rated restaurants, and enjoy a truly Vermont experience featuring farm-to-table cuisine in a casual, contemporary setting in the heart of the Waterbury Village Historic District. Make sure to ask to see their speakeasy bar (not accessible without a staff escort)!

For a fantastic fine dining experience with a view, book a table at Michael's on the Hill, known for its focus on locally-sourced ingredients and its French cuisine and prix fixe menus.
