With or without snow, there are many outdoor activities around us—both nearby and afar. Our property is only a few steps from a half-day of cross-country skiing or snowshoeing on 170 acres of Vermont Fish and Wildlife land.

Across the road and up aways is another opportunity for a cross-country ski or snowshoe adventure. Both Catamount Family Center and Sleepy Hollow have groomed trails and equipment rental for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

Lewis Creek is home to many animals whose tracks can be followed along this creek.

There are many activities and attractions to which you can drive. Feel free to bring your bikes if you'd like to explore the area.

Come, join us! Get refreshed and relaxed at The Hidden &Breakfast.

Your hosts, Marcia & Peter.
