Time to make the donuts...
It's a fact. Doughnuts are the new cupcakes and it was only a matter of time before hotels began incorporating the yummy fried dough into their menus.
At The Equinox Resort & Spa in Manchester Village, Vermont, you can rest assured that their doughnuts are the freshest they can be as the hotel has its very own doughnut machine. And Chef Jeffrey Russell put the machine to good use immediately, concocting Vermont apple cider doughnuts which he's been giving out to guests.
Normally we think of Vermont as a nice place to visit during the ski season but not any time else mainly because its too darn cold. However, you troublesome leaf-peepers can head up to the Equinox Hotel in Manchester Village for more of your fall foliage hijinks.
The hotel is now a huge modern resort but still contains the historic Marsh Tavern, built in 1769, as part of its complex. There's no specific Fall Foliage package offered here but you are essentially surrounded by it as the resort is situated on 2,300 acres. There's lots of outdoorsy activities to partake in such as canoeing, off-road driving and golfing or else you can hit up the award-winning Avanyu Spa.
If you really have your heart set on some foliage, then visit the hotel during October 28 when a naturalist from the VT Institute of Natural Science will offer a tour around the Equinox Preservation Trust to search for wildflowers.
Rooms start at around $220.
