We're not the only ones who love the views up here. In Winter the VAST Trail has a spur along the west border of our property, and the Main Route 122 VAST crossing is just up the road. Some come to go to Kingdom Trails (20 minutes away) and knock themselves out mountain biking, or skiing and many events at Burke Mountain. Craftsbury's many events (concerts & more in summer) and in winter there is the Open Center's groomed x-country trails (& dog-sledding). #1 Rated Hill Farmstead Brewery is just 18 minutes away (closed Sun-Tues). Thanksgiving often has the first good snowfall but this year snow started in early November and we've gotten 48" as of November 30th. In Winter there is x-country & downhill skiing, sledding, ice fishing, snowmobiling, dog-sledding, snowshoeing, and building snow things. Up here (Zone 4, 1800' elevation) we get LOTS of snow--3 miles away the weather is warmer and they get much less snow (Glover & Sheffield towns are at lower levels).

Many guests love gazing at the stars on clear nights. Birds all year round, Spring peepers in Spring, butterflies, fireflies & Luna moths in summer, the occasional moose, the abundant nature, wildflowers, beautiful Fall foliage, healthy water & raiding organic goodies from the Guest House Garden in the warm months. Others come for the many things to see, do, go to in the region, and come back happily exhausted at days' end. Swimming, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, biking, canoeing, kayaking, theater, concerts, exploring, boating -- so much in the warm months. early October to around the 21st are the various stages of foliage--from brilliant colors to glowing yellows afterwards.
