3 New England Destinations Named Best All-Inclusive Resorts In America
You check in, head up to your room, and put the wallet away for the duration of your stay. There’s a heightened level of relaxation when you go on to an all-inclusive resort. Travel and Leisure published a report on the best all-inclusive destinations in America for 2023, and three places in New England made the list.
Often travelers think of island paradise locations when considering all-inclusive trips. While there certainly are amazing options in places like the Caribbean, there are now some under-the-radar escapes within the country. At these all-inclusives, all-you-can-eat and drink options are included in your vacation booking. No need for a passport! And driving to one of these resorts might be an attractive option, as opposed to the typical day-long travel and dealing with airports.
As Travel and Leisure points out, booking an all-inclusive resort is very helpful in properly budgeting what the trip will cost and what you can afford to add on. “While private sessions like spa treatments are rarely included, it’s easier to factor in extras because you know exactly how much you’re spending upfront,” they explain.
So, where are these New England destinations that were named among the best all-inclusive destinations in America? Let’s hop in the car and find out.
The Green Mountain State has two out of three. However, they are quite different from each other, and about two hours apart.
Twin Farms, which is ten miles from Woodstock, is situated upon the estate of Sinclair Lewis and Dorothy Thompson. The property consists of ten cottages within 300 acres. Each cottage is unique with a historical touch. This is a country-side destination that offers home-cooked meals that are paired with wines. You will have hiking, archery, picnics, tennis, and pickleball available outside your door.
Next, if you head north to Highgate Springs, you will reach the second Vermont all-inclusive vacation spot named one of the best in New England for 2023. Tyler Place is a family resort that is more recreation driven. You name the summer activity and they have it. It has boating, a rock wall, swimming, biking, and more. The meals included are also primarily sourced from local farms.
Lastly, Miraval Resort and Spa in Lenox was also featured as a New England all-inclusive resort you need to know about. The difference here is that Miraval “offers an immersive wellness experience with a program that focuses on healthy elevated eating,” Travel and Leisure explains. This is a gratuity-free resort. Furthermore, you are given a nightly $175 credit that can be used at the Spa or towards any fee-based activity. With a genuine emphasis on a healthier you, Miraval Berkshires “invites you to slow down, notice and appreciate the spectacular here and now,” they explain.
