Help! I'm Looking for a relatively inexpensive getaway in Vermont in January or February.

the boyfriend and i need a minivacation!!! I'm looking for inn's, resorts, maybe b&b's in Vermont that are under $180 a night, but still cozy and charming without being old and stuffy! we don't ski but plan on doing lots of lazying by a fire, maybe some snowshoeing, dining out, and not much else! Have any of you stayed anywhere in VT that fits my requirements?? doing lots of research but personal experiences help a lot!!! thanks in advance!!

Smuggler's Notch

I had an excellent time when I went there. I went for the skiing, but I know they have other stuff, too. And it was very affordable!

Snowshoe Adventure Dinner (18 & Older)
Tuesday, 4:30 pm - 8:30 pm
A dramatic weekly entertainment and dining feature for adults atop Sterling Mountain. The Sterling lift transports you to The Top of The Notch, our candle-lit mountain cabin. The renown Hearth & Candle Restaurant serves a gourmet meal with appetizer, salad, choice of main course and a famous dessert. After dinner, work off those calories with a 40-minute snowshoe down to the Base Lodge. This is truly a rustic experience with no bathrooms.
$65 per person. Advance registration at The Guest Service Desk is required.
Function will be cancelled in the event of severe weather. Sign-up deadline Tuesday at 12:00 noon. Minimum sign-up is required for trip to run.

Snowshoeing! that sounds like so much fun!

If you haven't ever snowshoed--you can get them for about $79 at Sam's Club... (I think they have them online as well, but you will pay more for the shipping.)

My hubby and I bought some snow shoes 2 years ago. It's great exercise (expecially if you are the front person in a nice fresh pile of snow). You can do it anywhere-- (see if there are any national, state or local parks open that have trails to walk on). And, if you are lucky, you might even see a few deer or other animals along the way....

Not sure what kinds of cabins are available, but you might want to check the national, local or state parks. Some may have mini-cabins that are reasonable in rate, and allow you access to places where you can have a nice afternoon snowshoeing in the woods.

A few words of advice when snowshoeing, however...

1) do NOT wear cotton clothing--it soaks up any sweat (which you Will work up) and once you stop moving, you'll get cold.

2)Opt for "wicking" or polyester clothing... to keep you dry and cool...

3) Dress in layers and bring a small backpack for when you may want to take off some of the layers. (great for holding snacks too!)

4) Binoculars (for bird watching & deer watching) and a camera are always great..

5) Have fun! Enjoy and you can do it anywherre for very little money!

The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better.

This link will take you to a blog post where you can download a FREE copy of the Cheat System Diet Cookbook! The Cheat System has also been turned into a major book to be published May 6th, 2014. According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
Here is a preview of the cover:
