Fall in Vermont
Fall and Thanksgiving in Vermont cannot be outdone! If you want to see the fall foliage, there is nothing better than an autumn vacation in Vermont.
The early part of fall brings cooler days, a slower pace, students coming back to the college, and apple picking. Stop by a local orchard to taste the multiple varieties of apples (or pick your own), cider, and donuts – yes donuts! Happy Valley Orchard’s apple cider donuts are some of our favorite! October brings the colors and the visitors. Plan ahead for this time of year as our rooms fill fast. Take a drive during the day to appreciate the natural beauty Vermont has to offer and then stay in for the evening with a romantic candlelit dinner for two at Jessica’s Restaurant. The culinary team in our kitchen switches over to the heartier fall delights and specials made with local ingredients. Finally, the cool days turn to cold nights, and we start the fireplaces.
Fly Fishing in Vermont
Mid-April – October 31, 2019
Enjoy two nights at the Swift House and a day of fly fishing for two. In the Spring, the trout are hungry and active after a long, cold winter. The local Middlebury rivers and streams are teaming with Rainbow and Brown trout. You will be accompanied by a local guide from Stream and Brook, providing local knowledge and everything from useful tips to teaching you how to fly fish. Everyone from those who have never fished to the most experienced will enjoy this package.
The Package includes 2 nights lodging, one dinner for two, and a day of guided fly fishing with lunch. Rates are for two people fishing; if only one is fishing the second person will enjoy a massage, manicure, and pedicure at a local spa. Package ranges from $996 to $1166 plus tax, depending on Main House or Carriage House room, and what time of year (Package is subject to availability of guide and spa; gratuities for guide and masseuse are NOT included).
