Travelers booking romantic trips in New England this fall can choose from some of the most charming small towns and quaint resorts in the country, according to USA Today.

The publication released a list of 11 romantic small towns and resorts for fall across the United States and more than half of its picks are located in New England. They are: Blantyre in Lenox; Kennebunkport, Maine; Omni Mount Washington Resort in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire; The Lodge at Spruce Peak in Stowe, Vermont; Woodstock Inn and Resort in Woodstock, Vermont; and Winvian Farm in Morris, Conn.

Blantyre in Lenox, located in the Berkshires, which the publication called “the best spot in Massachusetts to see fall colors” is a Tudor mansion estate with private trails for guests.


Maine’s Kennebunkport offers excursions such as lobster fishing and “some of the country’s most striking color changes,” according to the publication.

While in New Hampshire, travelers should book a stay at Omni Mount Washington Resort, “an elegant hideaway in dreamy Bretton Woods,” USA Today wrote.
