Meeting Space Reno at Vermont’s Equinox

The Equinox, a Luxury Collection Golf Resort and Spa, a destination resort in Vermont, completes a multi-phase renovation this month that includes a refresh of its meeting and event spaces. The renovation is being led by Carey Watermark Investors in collaboration with Studio 11 Design, an award-winning, full-service, international design, art, and branding firm.

The Equinox Golf Resort & Spa has 18,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor venue space that can accommodate from 10 to 350 guests. The space has been refreshed to accommodate meetings, weddings and exhibits, and artwork now decorates the corridors of the meeting and event spaces, while carpeting and paint have been revived with colorful tones of blues and slate. New upholstery aims to inspire a more traditional, clean feel.
In terms of accommodations, the property’s 147 guest rooms and suites have been updated with new carpeting, drapery, plush couches and lounge chairs, desk furnishings, tables with dark wooden bases and marble tops, along with new hardwood box frame beds. Corridors have also been updated with blue and grey hues in the new wallpaper and carpeting, and bathroom lighting has been enhanced with mirrors in inset lighting.  The new color scheme also includes soft neutral colors with green accents that pay homage to Manchester’s landscape. 

Public spaces have also been renovated. In addition to new furnishings, the lobby has a wine bar. One of The Equinox’s restored gas chandeliers from the 19th century Opera House across the street has been restored and hung in the Great Room, while the original antique key box has been mounted behind the front desk. A focal point of the property is the Library, where guests have been gathering around the wood-burning marble fireplace since 1769. The area also caters to special events with an expansive hardwood dining table, lounge chairs tucked into cozy spots with smaller tables for intimate gatherings, reading, or playing board games with the family.
The Equinox Golf Resort & Spa’s onsite restaurants have also been renovated. Serving classic New England pub fare for lunch and dinner, Marsh Tavern now has a contemporary feel with modern light fixtures, seating, and round tables to facilitate conversation.
The Chop House has been completely redone with new banquette seating against the walls, and the marble fireplace engraved with Louise Orvis initials has been decorated with new mantel accessories. The steakhouse serves a variety of prime-aged beef sourced from local farms and purveyors for dinner as well as fresh seafood, signature sides and house made breads.
Falcon Bar received a light refresh with new wallpaper, seating, and upholstery with a deep wooden aesthetic.. The design team paid homage to the resort’s falconry experience by adding a decorative glass falcon to the back bar as well as abstract images of falcons along the walls. Near the falcon bar is the Equinox desk offering a 10x10-foot lava fire pit with a view of the Equinox Mountain.
Finally, the Spa at The Equinox is fully renovated with soft wood flooring and a wood-accented reception desk. The newly renovated hot tubs both offer guests a full body immersion into relaxing waters while enjoying views of the Equinox Mountain. The 14,000 square foot facility houses, sauna, steam room, movement & fitness studio and 75-foot lap and recreational pool, which has a Jane Armstrong sculpture of the Sea Horse along with new lounge furniture.
