Pool / Fitness Center
In the winter of 1997, Hawk introduced its pleasantly surprised guests to the unique experience of Vermont's first year-round, heated outdoor swimming pool. As an adjunct to Hawk's indoor pool, the two swimming pools together create a wonderful swimming experience. Featuring multiple lap lanes and an adjoining water lounge, the outdoor pool is heated to approximately 90° in the middle of the winter and is brought down to a comfortable and refreshing 72° in summertime. Either way, the experience of swimming outdoors among the splendor of the Green Mountains, whether they are snow-covered or lit fiery orange with the foliage, will be an experience you won't soon forget.
Inside, Outside...Choose Your Pleasure
Meanwhile, for a more traditional swim, the indoor pool is always ready for a leisurely dip. Sheltered by a cathedral ceiling in a climate-controlled, glass-enclosed room overlooking the Black River, the freeform indoor pool remains popular year-round as well. Just steps from your inn room, both pools will tempt you as you pass by them on your way to The River Tavern. So when it comes time to experience luxury of an aquatic nature, all you have to do is choose your pleasure - you can't go wrong at Hawk.
The Feeling is Nothing Short of Invigorating
Return from a challenging day on the slopes and slip into the outdoor pool to thaw out while surveying the myriad of stars in the Vermont night sky. Sure, it's freezing outside and the snow is coming down at a steady pace. But the warm water all around you provides one of the most unique sensations you've ever experienced. Suddenly, you notice that your hair is forming icicles, yet you don't feel the least sensation of being cold. In fact, you feel like you could stay there forever breathing the crisp mountain air while listening to the sounds of the Black River as it forges its course past the Inn. So perform your daily laps or just assess your natural surroundings from the water lounge, and watch in awe as cross-country skiers glide right past the edge of the pool on their way through the circuitous Hawk trail network.
