Vermont is famous for its rolling farmlands, wooded landscapes, and endless mountains. Each season has its own perks, from summer to winter, therefore glampers here are lucky every time of the year.
The warm weather months are great for visiting farms and exploring the lush green landscapes around the region. Hiking ranges from easy family hikes to vigorous mountain adventures, while mountain biking, mountain climbing, geocaching, horseback riding, and trekking are popular activities in the area. Nearby state forests such as Taconic State Park, Grafton Lakes State Park, Clarksburg State Forest, Woodford State Park, Lake Paran, the Battenkill River, and Lake Shaftsbury are superb locations for activities such as kayaking, canoeing, tubing, swimming, picnicking, fishing, and photography.
The tri-state area is home to many wild animal species such as wild turkeys, white-tailed deer, and even bears and moose! And speaking of wildlife, the fly fishing is unsurpassed anywhere in New England and guests can even take lessons at the Orvis Headquarters, hire a guide on the well-known Battenkill, or visit the Vermont fisheries where those trophy fish are raised to stock the area lakes and rivers.
During the winter months, glampers can take advantage of the snow-cover at higher altitudes and enjoy cross-country and downhill skiing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing from November to April. Ice skating on one of the many frozen lakes is a popular winter sport. Guests can even learn to operate a dog sled if they are so inclined!
If guests choose to get a break from the outdoors, they can venture into the towns of Bennington, Williamstown, and beyond where world-class museums, historic sites, and cultural venues await exploration. Vermont and the surrounding areas are known for the farm fresh produce, cheese, organic meats, craft beer, and maple products, so guests can enjoy farm-to-table cuisine in popular restaurants and watering holes or buy from the source and eat in. Antiquing is also popular in the region, as well as shopping at local craft and art galleries, outlet malls, and boutiques.
These towns also are home to golf courses, so golfers should not forget their favorite clubs.
