Stick Season Closure: October 29 – November 23, 2017

Homestyle Hostel will be closed from October 29 through November 23, re-opening on Friday, November 24th (the day after Thanksgiving)! We will take this time to do some much needed kitchen renovations, and to go on vacation! Thank you all for a wonderful Summer/Fall season!

“A tranquil effect washes over Vermont immediately after foliage. A few bouts of rain, a burst of wind, and one early frost cause piles of leaves to slowly return to the earth. Bright yellows and burnt oranges drop from their treetops. The trees left behind remain tall and barren, surrounded by sporadic conifers and pines. Leaf-laden trails wind through a forest of bare branches and sweeping views. In Vermont, we call this stick season.” – Cheddar and Gin

THE AREA OF south-central Vermont around Stratton Mountain is a rural landscape of white-clapboard farm houses and rolling hills forested with tall pines and silvery birches. Indisputably beautiful countryside, to be sure, but with poor cellphone coverage, stringent restrictions on development and the native Vermonters’ inclination to keep a good thing to themselves, it hasn’t exactly been on the jet-set’s radar.

That’s largely what compelled me and my husband to buy a weekend house there in 2014—a spontaneous indulgence in that clichéd real estate fantasy of “getting away from it all.” We were eager to flee our Brooklyn home on winter weekends and take advantage of Stratton’s ski slopes, a 41⁄2-hour drive north of New York. Little did we know that our pokey winter retreat would morph into a stealthily fashionable destination where foodie restaurants are slowly supplanting diners with sticky booths and stylish hotels edging out doily-infested B&Bs. Increasingly, the area has enough going on to make it an attractive summer spot too.

In 2011, New England’s first private-club ski resort, the Hermitage Club at Haystack Mountain, opened outside the town of Wilmington; in 2015, it completed a 90,000-foot post-and-beam lodge. Mercedes-Benz buses whisking its guests to the mountain from the nearby small airport have become a common sight on the country roads. Nonmembers are welcome to stay at the club’s six inns—all renovated historic properties scattered around Wilmington and adjacent town Dover—enjoying nearly full access to the ski facilities in winter
