Built in the 19th century, the Amber Vermont Resort was initially owned by a Scottish botanist and geologist who is renowned for having discovered fossils in the Sivalik Hills in the Himalayas. The property was then bought by a British family, after which it was refurbished into a boutique resort. This typical Victorian architecture reminds one of the luxuries of 19th century when the skyline of a town was made up of grand mansions and manors. So, for everyone who loves archaic structures, Amber Vermont Resort is sure to delight you.
