Experience: Four Columns Inn of Newfane, Vermont

New England is a picturesque area of the country no matter what season you visit it in (except maybe deep winter), and summer is a spectacularly glorious time. Warm weather mixed with cool evening breezes makes it perfect for pool side lounging and evenings by a fire. And the best place I’ve found to do that? Four Columns Inn in Newfane, Vermont.
This charming and historic inn has been carefully upgraded to reflect the modern tastes for finer things in life; spacious rooms, comfy down beds, an on-site spa, pond, fire pit, pool, and gorgeous lawns makes this place straight out of a movie. The “Tavern” bar is well-stocked with favorites and the Artisan restaurant offers everything fresh from the farms and back gardens. I loved the large bathroom in our room, too, with its soaking tub AND separate shower - perfect for cleaning off after a day at the river and then falling into bed for a cozy sleep.
The complimentary breakfast isn’t your classic hotel continental; this seated meal has a broad range of farm to table options of fresh breakfasts.
Famed chef Erin Bevan is exceptional, and absolutely passionate about sustainability and the farm to table community. Being in Vermont, surrounded by farms they’ve partnered with, you know you’re getting the freshest food possible. Erin is known for stopping by the farm stand on her way in to work and picking up whatever strikes her fancy! When it came time for dinner we opted for a broad range of plates; I got the super food salad (what can I say, ya girl likes kale), while my sister had the artichoke tart to start. For the main we tried the goat cheese gnocchi and a side of asparagus saffron couscous.
When it came time to end our stay at the Four Columns Inn it was like saying goodbye to family; everyone had been so welcoming and friendly. I can’t wait to head back again!
