BEST FARMHOUSE RETREAT
Meadowlark Inn, West Brattleboro

BEST BOVINE B&B
Shearer Hill Farm B&B, Wilmington

BEST RETRO ESCAPE
Casablanca Motel, Manchester Center
Don’t look for an arcade; join in a game of bocce, volleyball, or croquet instead. The 10 themed cabins (“Norman Rockwell,” “Sugar Maple,” and so on) offer up-to-date conveniences and great mountain views. Rates: from $75. 5927 Main St. (Route 7A) 800-254-2145, 802-362-2145; casablancamotel.com

BEST JAMAICAN ESCAPE
Three Mountain Inn, Jamaica
The country-inn experience, with no facet overlooked: antiques, featherbeds, fireplaces or stoves (in 10 of the 15 guestrooms), three-course breakfasts, and dinner in one of only a handful of AAA four-diamond establishments in Vermont.

BEST ISLAND GETAWAY

BEST REFUGE BY A REFUGE
Campbell’s Bay Campground, West Swanton
Canoeing and kayaking are popular pastimes at this Lake Champlain complex bordering a 7,500-acre wildlife refuge, but fishing reigns supreme.
