One look at this eco property has me wishing for nothing more than a long weekend in Vermont. The state’s greenest inn, A Stone Wall Inn B&B is a “new century escape” that blends design and landscape to appeal to guests and the surrounding environment.

Solar heated, the buildings are constructed of mostly locally milled wood, some of it recycled. Exterior pine siding has been re-used, re-fabricated and utilized as an interior finish. Also inside is a collection of biodegradable detergents, soaps, shampoos and cleaners. Natural fiber fabrics cover beds and outside, herbs, flowers and fruits are grown for jellies and delectable breakfast foods.

During a stay, guests can explore the backwoods of Jamaica State Park, the beautiful Hamilton Falls or the Green Mountain National Forest, or simply spend a day leisurely shopping the area’s many local antique shops.

Rooms start @ $125. For more info, visit www.astonewallinn.com
