The very name Vermont conjures up mental images of rolling green mountains, peaceful and attractive small towns, and blazing fall colors, and glampers wishing to make this image a reality will not be disappointed by the small town of Sandgate in the Green Mountain State’s Bennington County. Whether visitors wish to tackle the famous Long Trail, America’s oldest hiking route, as it works its way up the state’s mountain spine towards Canada, go skiing in mountain resorts such as Killington, which features the second largest vertical drop east of the Rockies, or at snowboard-friendly Stratton Mountain, or simply relax and enjoy the small-town pleasures of villages like historic Sunderland with its ancient tavern or Manchester with its arts scene and boutique shops, Sandgate provides the perfect New England getaway.
