The Hermitage Club is a four-season escape in Wilmington Vermont at the heart of the Deerfield Valley. The 1,000+acre private enclave is perfect for families and individuals seeking uncrowded and uncompromising adventure and luxury. At the core of the property is 3,200′ Haystack Mountain which has been reopened and re-imagined as the East Coast’s only private, member’s only, ski-resort.
