Location

Car: Necessary

Every season at SkyLight Lodge brings its own attractions. Ski at nearby Stratton and Bromley in the winter. Cross Country ski at Hildene, Robert Todd Lincolns home overlooking the Battenkill Valley. SkyLight is on the VAST trail for snowmobilers. Fall is foliage and hiking up Mount Equinox or on the Long Trail. The Lodge is surrounded by the Green Mountain Forest and situated just below Spruce Peak. Spring is sugaring season and the sugar shacks are available to see how real Maple

syrup is made. Summer brings Dorset Summer Theatre, swimming in the Quarry, golfing and fishing. Bromley opens its Sun Mountain and has a ZipRider and Alpine Slide for fast paced thrills.

And each season has antiquing, great restaurants, museums, lots of outlets shopping (Ralph Lauren, Lilly Pulitzer, Coach, Kate Spade, Theory, J.Crew...) and the beautiful Equinox Spa. Attend Fly-Fishing or Wingshooting Schools at Orvis in nearby Manchester. The American Museum of Fly Fishing, Battenkill River Canoe Trips, Southern Vermont Arts Center.

The best book store I have ever been to is Northshire Books and it has a good amount of author events and the best cafe attached for when you get hungry.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My husband and I bought this lodge when our eldest son, Sam, was attending Stratton Mountain School for his 8th grade Winter Term. We also have three girls, Doodle , Jane and Nellie. We bought SkyLight Lodge from Frank and Jean Burns who were the original owners and they ran it as an Inn for over 40 years while raising their two daughters. We ski at Stratton and Bromley and snowmobile right from our front door on the VAST trail. We can literally walk across the street to Mistrals, a highly acclaimed French restaurant for Chauteaubriand. We live full time in Litchfield, Connecticut but spend as much time as we can in Vermont.

Why the Owner Chose Peru, VT, USA:
In its heyday, SKI Magazine, February 1977 issue said, ' most of the serious skiers who frequent SkyLight Lodge wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. Evening entertainment consists of fireside conversation, usually about skiing. The Burns's promote good fellowship and guests with good senses of humor.' SKI Magazine, October 1994, said of SkyLight, 'The den in the cellar, says Jean, is where in the good ole days , everyone smoked and smooched.' Although SkyLight has been completely and beautifully redone the bones of this old school ski lodge is still there. It is warm and cozy while being able to accommodate a large crowd. We love it and know you will too.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
The view from one of the two Master Bedrooms of Mount Equinox is gorgeous. There are so many things to do in the area everyone will be happy. The possibilities are endless in every season.
