As Vermont's Green Mountains rumble through the southern end of the state, they arrive at Ludlow, a "low-key and unassuming" town (per Frommer's) that's home to The Pointe at Castle Hill hotel, where an exclusive package has sent prices down 50%.
Visit Sundays-Thursdays through Sept. 10 for $79 per night. Weekends are $20 more per night, with a two-night minimum.
Bookings come with a $25 credit toward a 50-minute massage at the Aveda spa and a $25 credit toward a three-course prix fixe dinner for two at Castle Hill Restaurant -- a wood-paneled dining room in a historic building next door.
The hotel is a ten-minute drive from Okemo Mountain, crisscrossed with hiking trails, golf courses and zip-lines. The hotel is also within an hour's drive from Manchester, Woodstock, Quechee and Weston, which offer historic town centers and antiquing.
This deal is not available on: July 12-13, 22-24. Dinner credit not valid on July 27; Aug. 17; Sept. 8.
