Not quite ready to end your Labor Day weekend just yet? Grab your beloved and jet to this romantic New England resort!
Where: Okemo Mountain Resort. 77 Okemo Ridge Rd., Ludlow, VT. 800-78-OKEMO (786-5366) or www.okemo.com
What’s special: Guests enjoy the newest source of relaxation — the two-level, 18,000-square-foot fitness and aquatic center. Play tennis, bike, dine, visit nearby breweries, explore the area, see how cheese is made, and play golf on the two championship courses. (For an incredible mountain experience, we recommend Okemo Valley Golf Course: The fairways are filled with dips, ripples, rolls, and hollows and the greens are sweeping and sculpted to reward your short game.) Put this all against the backdrop of Vermont’s dazzling Green mountains, and it’s an experience you’ll never forget. Above all, enjoy Mother Nature’s splendid autumn display of colors.
The deal: Okemo Mountain Resort’s Romance Package: Spend two nights in an Executive Inn room at the Jackson Gore Inn and enjoy all the amenities of the Spring House pool and fitness center. Package includes one massage and one candlelight dinner at the Resort’s Coleman Brook Tavern for each person, along with a Vermont gift bag for the couple to share. In addition, each person will receive a certificate for 20 percent off lunch or dinner at Willie Dunn’s Grille or the Coleman Brook Tavern. The price is $625 including all taxes. Hudson Valley magazine readers receive an extra 10 percent off. (Other room types available with the same discount.) Mention the Hudson Valley Romance Package when booking.
