Overview: The Wildflower Inn serves as cultural hub of mountain biking in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. The inn boasts a trailside bike shop and serves as the host site for NEMBAfest, an annual gathering of more than 2,000 mountain bikers. Today, the 1700s-era barns, carriage house, blacksmith shop, and schoolhouse have been renovated to accommodate guests. Rooms are spacious and comfortable—most come with views of the Green Mountains, home to the acclaimed Kingdom Trails network, which runs through the property with access to more than 100 miles of singletrack.
Notable: The on-site Village Sport Shop takes care of your two-wheeled needs, from lessons to gear, rentals to repairs. Plus, there’s coffee to jumpstart rides and draught beers for unwinding after.
One Tip: If rain chases you off the trails, take the scenic 40-minute drive to Hill Farmstead Brewery, consistently ranked among the best in the world.
Stay Here If: You’re a mountain biker.
Information: Rooms start at $217 per night and include a hearty breakfast and afternoon snack. wildflowerinn.com —Alex Showerman
