If there’s one word that describes Vermont, it's ‘scenic’. Winding roads along rolling hills allow for wonderful vistas of tumbling streams, lovely villages and superb trails amid thick woods and state forests. But sometimes, you need to take a break from the great outdoors and soak your bones in a relaxing pool. Luckily, a few of our favorite resorts in this New England locale have great places to snag a swim. Take a dip:
Castle Hill Resort and Spa offers old-world charm that is all about the details -- from the historic wood-paneled walls to the library filled with old books. There are just 10 quaint rooms here, offering antique touches like Tiffany lamps, claw foot tubs, and brick fireplaces. The heated outdoor pool with comfortable loungers is a modern perk.
