The Most Over-the-Top Way to Leaf Peep

See the warm autumn colors from a new vantage point

We flock to New England for Cape Cod summers, picturesque ski slopes, fresh seafood and, in the fall, leaf peeping. If you aren’t familiar, leaf peeping is when travelers trek to the places where foliage changes color during the autumn months.   

Now, there’s a more luxe way to see the leaves. Two properties—the Taconic in Manchester, Vermont, and The Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge, Massachusetts—are teaming up to offer a complete town and country experience: a stay for two at Hotel Marlowe in the Presidential Suite followed by a chartered helicopter trip from Massachusetts to Manchester to see the red, gold and orange fall foliage, concluded with a two-night stay in one of Taconic’s cottages.

The $16,000 package also includes intimate dinners at the hotels’ restaurants, chef-packed picnic baskets, an excursion to the Mt. Equinox summit with Land Rover, a guided hike, departure brunch and transportation to and from the helipads and hotels.
