Juniper Bar & Restaurant serves fresh and elevated meals, featuring local and seasonal ingredients, as well as a Bloody Mary bar and a decadent brunch menu. Downtown Burlington also offers plenty of delicious food and drink options, like Dedalus Wine Bar and Zero Gravity Brewing, and shops to peruse.


But, when away from the kids, moms likely crave good sleep. That’s where Hotel Vermont’s bedtime menucomes in, offering guests a list of amenities available to order before bed, from aromatherapy to a hot toddy. A meditation room in the fitness center helps round out the relaxation, as do on-site Peloton bikes or bikes for guests to use along the lake, helping to burn off steam and get their heart rate up.

The offer also includes tickets to ECHO Leahy Center for Lake Champlain, an interactive science and nature museum.
