Things to do on holiday to Vermont

When on holiday to Vermont, there are plenty of activities no matter the time of year you visit. During the winter, you can take advantage of the snowfall and icy weather by trying your hand at ice fishing, ice skating, snowmobiling, snowboarding or skiing. Beginners will be able to find instructors to help them learn just about any of these winter sports. If you visit during the fall, you will be witness to the spectacular sight of the leaves changing colour. The green leaves turn to fiery shades of yellow, orange and red and seem to light up the sky with their brilliant colours. The fall is also when the maple harvests occur. You will be able to visit small, family owned maple farms and learn about how this sweet treat is harvested and processed today, as well as how it was done in the past. In the summer, you can swim, boat, dive as well as explore the gorgeous scenery on one of the many hiking or biking trails.

There are thrill rides, a water park and the longest zip line in New England. Those who love history must stop by Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home which was built by the son of the 16th United States president.

The fireplace is beautiful and the pre chopped wood made starting a fire effortless. It's an 8 minute ride to Stowe mountain, there is a grocery store minutes away and plenty of great restaurants nearby. The hot tub was amazing after skiing! We were able to bring our dog along with us which made us (and him) very happy. There is a lot of privacy and the road nearby is very quiet. Internet access was perfect and the cable was also a plus. One of our favorite things was the little woodchuck who chose to hibernate outside of the cellar window- it was cool to see an animal hibernating in its natural habitat! Overall it was a great vacation and we felt very "at home". We would definitely rent here again!
