Is there a reason for Rutland?  I grew up in VT and there are so many lovely towns with beautiful places to stay, but Rutland isn’t the first place that comes to mind.  You could really find something nice and quaint if you opened it up to other towns.

@Cheeks225:  What a tactful way of putting that. Rutland really is not the nicest part of VT.

I would suggest Woodstock/Quechee, Manchester, or Stowe instead. Lots of B&Bs and such in those areas and they are your classic quaint Vermont villages. There are things to do in those areas as well- not so much around Rutland. March is definitely off season for non-ski areas so selection may be limited but prices will be good!

It also occurred to me that you might look at Middlebury too- pretty close to your 30mi radius.

@vermonster:  I second Woodstock.  It’s maybe 30 mins from Rutland?  Just over the mountain, but it’s all on rt 4, so its an easy drive.  Great inn, some B&B’s, dining, makes for a great honeymoon location.

There are many nice places to stay within 30 miles of Rutland. The Red Clover Inn is darling, intimate, romantic…and the owners are awesome.

 Also the Inn at Long Trail….sigh…it’s super cute…right at the top of the Pass, there’s an “Irish” bar (McGrath’s), and the rooms are super old-style romantic…plus they have fantastic breakfasts!!!

If you like more “modern” for a place to stay, the Inn of the 6 Mountains is more like a “proper” hotel…but since I lived “on the mountain” for 3 years…I tend to have a bit of an opinion. 🙂

PS, I lived in Rutland the first year I was in Vermont, yeah it’s not fancy, but apart from the 20-mile drive home in uber snowstorms, it was actually really fun. For the 2 years after, when I lived “at Killington”, I still had to drive down there to shop.

Rutland will always have a place in my heart as a “hometown” that I loved. If you have any specific questions please let me know.

Dont stay in Rutland, it is the opposite of romance! Head up to Killington (20min), Okemo/Ludlow (30min), Chittenden (20-30min), Middlebury (30min) or Woodstock (45-60min). The train station is in the walmart parking lot and like a block from the bus station. The Bus (local bus) would take you up to Killington for fairley cheap. Early March is still ski season for them so the access road will still be hopping.

Goodluck with finding your honeymoon oasis!
