Green Mountain Inn in Stowe, Vt.

Green Mountain Inn

There’s a lot to like about the Green Mountain Inn in picturesque Stowe, Vt. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the warm and inviting inn has more than 100 comfortable rooms filled with antiques, and two popular on-site restaurants. So it’s no surprise that Boots Berry doesn’t want to leave. Boots was born in 1840 in Room 302 in the third-floor servants’ quarters, and grew up to be the inn’s horseman. He was a local
hero, lauded for stopping a runaway stagecoach, before he started drinking, got fired, and left town. He returned in 1902, when he saved a girl who was stranded on the inn’s roof during a snowstorm, before slipping to his own death. Some guests swear they hear Boots tap dancing on the roof, just above Room 302.  18 Main St., Stowe, Vt. 802-253-7301, www.greenmountaininn.com, standard rooms $159-$279.
