Vermont: Stowe & Middlebury

5 DaysStarting at $3,395

Overview

We remember our first time in Vermont. The quiet little lane. The green hills that backed up to the barn with the grove of maples that led to the clapboard house with the big porch. The farmer with the smile and a tip of the cap. We’ll never forget the stillness, the absence of rush, the ten pictures we took of one scene hoping we could somehow capture it. The true appeal of Vermont is that none of that has changed. Whether we’re visiting a sugarmaker, exploring the woodlands and the valleys, strolling a village square, or watching Morgan colts frolic in a white-fenced pasture, the peace is authentic. The beauty is un-retouched. This journey ranges through terrains of town and country that you can hardly believe still exist in America. But they do. Clocks tick just as fast here, but you’ll slow down. And, if you’re like us, after a day outdoors and dinner by the fireplace, you’ll sleep as you haven’t slept for years.

Highlights

DAYS 1 - BURLINGTON / STOWE
We meet in Burlington for a lively waterfront walk along Lake Champlain with views of the Adirondacks to the west.

A short drive away, Stowe (2 nights) is our base for forays into classic New England. One dramatic walk includes Smugglers’ Notch and the expansive views of birch and maple forests to Bingham Falls. 

DAYS 2-3 – STOWE / MONTPELIER
We’ll visit the fragrant Hill Farmstead Brewery, and accompany a naturalist along the trails surrounding the Trapp Family Lodge.

In the state capital of Montpelier, we take a walk through the town takes us past the bustling Main and State streets to the Vermont State House, and If you like, climb up the 50ft stone tower for a 360° view of the city. we experience one of Vermont’s finest sights—the covered bridge. Northfield has the largest cluster of covered bridges in Vermont. We then visit Lincoln Peak Vineyard, for tastings and a tour of the operations.

DAYS 4-5 - MIDDLEBURY / BURLINGTON
With Vermont being famous for their maple syrup, it is only fitting that we stop for a visit to a sugar house to see how it is made. Later, you will enjoy a picnic lunch comprised of meats and cheeses from local cheesemakers while taking in scenic views. After a hike up the Falls of Lana in the Green Mountain National Forest, we head back into town for the farewell dinner. 

On our final day, enjoy a morning sunrise and stock up on maple syrup, before returning to Burlington.
