Most romantic restaurant/bar: The Bistro at Ten Acres
Don't leave without: Staying in a cabin like the rustic yet luxurious offerings from Goldilocks Cabin, where you can rough it without, you know, actually roughing it
Located at the base of Vermont's highest peak, this laid-back resort town less than an hour east of Burlington may be most well known as the home of Stowe Mountain Resort. It may be even foxier in the fall months, though, as the trees unfurl their glorious autumn foliage. Explore the idyllic mountain town's covered bridges and hiking trails before taking a seductive gondola ride up to Mount Mansfield. Get a taste of cold air, then head home to kindle a fire.
