Supercar Showdown 2004: A Mountain Man's World

  • Karen Cakebread

While supercar test-driving is not part of the everyday activities at the Equinox, located in southern Vermont’s Manchester Village, the resort’s Country Pursuits program does include off-road driving, archery, and falconry (see "Raptor Rapture"). Those desiring more mainstream country pursuits can avail themselves of 18 holes on the Gleneagles golf course, tennis or fly-fishing, or winter sports at the resort’s cross-country touring center. When a day in the field segues into dusk and indoor comforts beckon, the inn has those areas covered as well. The recently renovated Avanyu Spa carries on the Vermont theme with an extensive menu of treatments, such as the Mountain Man’s Facial and the Maple Scrub. And besides a main building that contains 136 comfortable rooms and a tavern, the Equinox’s clublike adjunct, the Charles Orvis Inn next door, houses nine luxurious fly-fishing-themed suites plus a private bar, a billiard room, and its own concierge.
