The artists’ haven of Brandon, Vermont, once proclaimed the “Art and Soul” of the Green Mountain State by a punning state governor, is well known for its period architecture, covering multiple periods of early American history, and for art galleries, potteries, glassmakers, sculpture workshops, and every other type of craft shop under the sun, not to mention its numerous musical events and other festivals. However, culture vultures are not the only ones who will be thrilled by this attractive corner of New England. With the Long Trail passing nearby as it snakes its way along the mountain crests towards the Canadian border, hikers and nature lovers will also be enthused by their surroundings, as will winter sports aficionados, due to the proximity of several ski areas. Brandon’s glamping accommodations include cottages on organic dairy farms and historic villas, ensuring glampers can combine culture, outdoor splendor, and luxury all in one.
