STOWE, VT—Lark Hotels is set to debut Field Guide, its first mountain resort, on Oct. 1, which brings the number of hotels in the collection to 12.
According to Lark Hotels, the new resort is envisioned as a home base for exploration and unique Vermont vacation experiences. The property occupies the site of the former Ye Olde England Inn and features 30 accommodations, comprised of 17 standard guestrooms, 10 suites and three private-entrance cottages.
Boston-based interior designer Rachel Reider fused varied textiles and finishes with a rich, sunset-inspired palette. Green, gold, dusky purple, gray and orange complement furnishings that evoke shapes and textures found in nature, such as custom live edge wooden headboards, bathroom walls of reclaimed wood and silver leaf tree stump end tables. Wallpaper prints that feature the look and feel of birch wood and birds perched on tree limbs are juxtaposed with cardboard and papier mâché animal heads, old trail guides, antlers and whimsical vintage Vermont pieces.
Amenities include a daily, curated signature breakfast of small plates, seasonal heated pool and year-round hot tub, spa treatment room, meeting and event spaces, and a lounge where guests can play games or peruse a collection of vintage field guides. An onsite restaurant and bar,
still to be named, is scheduled to open in winter 2016.
“Field Guide was conceived and curated for active, curious adventurers who seek the relaxed, modern, and playful style that has become our signature,” said CEO Rob Blood, Lark Hotels. “We fell in love with the bones of Ye Olde England Inn and are excited to share this next chapter with our guests. The hotel is minutes from the slopes, trails, and main village, and almost any other activity you can imagine.”
Following in Field Guide’s footsteps will be The Merchant, an 11-room boutique hotel launching this fall in Salem, MA.
