Romantic Getaways in Vermont: The Norwich Inn
New England’s Upper Valley is filled with absorbing history, awe-inspiring natural beauty, and undeniably romantic inns, which is why couples from across the region flock to the neighboring riverfront communities of Norwich and Hanover for well-deserved romantic getaways in Vermont. Nestled in the heart of Norwich, VT, rests The Norwich Inn, one of the most romantic hotels near Dartmouth College. The Norwich Inn is immersed in history and elegance as it was established in 1797 by Dartmouth graduate Colonel Jasper Murdock. Our alluring Vermont inn not only features three properties highlighted by dozens of visually-striking guest rooms, but you and your sweetheart can also enjoy refreshing housemade Jasper Murdock Ales and fine on-site dining.
Romantic Getaways in Vermont
The Norwich Inn remains one of the only romantic getaways in Vermont that’s within 1.3 miles of an Ivy League school, a popular recreational body of water, and one of the premier staples in the baking industry: King Arthur Flour. Whether you’re hoping to bake with the pros at world-famous King Arthur Flour, paddle through the tranquil Connecticut River, or embark on a tour of Dartmouth College, The Norwich Inn is the ideal “home base” for your romantic escape to the Upper Valley.
For those who’re looking for a “taste” of adventure during your visit to the Upper Valley, we recommend kayaking along the Connecticut River, rock climbing in the Green Mountains, and hiking on the Gile Mountain Trail. Enroll in King Arthur Flour’s baking school, stroll through the Norwich Farmers Market in search of fresh vegetables, unique crafts, and gorgeous flowers, and observe award-winning artworks at the Hood Museum of Art before retreating to The Norwich Inn for dinner, craft beer, and sophisticated relaxation.
Fine Dining and Housemade Craft Beer
Choose between a romantic, elegant experience inside The Dining Room or a casual yet scenic meal on The Patio to commemorate your anniversary, engagement, honeymoon, or spontaneous escape. There’s something for every palate here at The Norwich Inn thanks to Executive Chef Scott Liberty’s creative, newly-transformed menu, which is highlighted by a 100 percent grass-fed filet mignon and fresh-caught Faroe Island salmon. Take a step back in time inside our subtly-luxurious yet old-world Dining Room before slipping over to The Pub for a pint of award-winning craft beer, most notably the “Whistling Pig Red Ale,” our game-changing Irish classic. Visit this website for an up-date tap list. You never know what our talented brewers are whipping together on a given day, but fans of experimental IPAs, malty Scottish ales, and robust stouts are in for a real treat!
