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 the picking of apples. Our county is famous for the apples. Stop by a local orchard stand to taste the multiple varieties of apples, and don’t forget the apple cider and cider donuts – yes donuts! You can also pick your own apples! October brings the colors and the visitors. Plan ahead for this time of year as our rooms fill fast! The culinary team in our kitchen switches over to the heartier fall delights. Finally, the cool days turn to cold nights, and we start the fireplaces. Our fall packages offer persuasive reasons to come and stay at the Swift House Inn.
Fly Fishing in Vermont
April 12 – October 31
Enjoy two nights at the Swift House and a day of fly fishing for two. In the autumn the trout are active and feeding to get ready for the long winter. The brown trout are spawning and are big and angry! The local Middlebury rivers and streams are teaming with rainbow and brown trout waiting for you. For your trip, a local guide from Stream and Brook accompanies you and provides 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 angler, enjoy this package.
This package includes two nights of 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 can opt to enjoy a massage at a local spa. Package ranges from $835 to $1100, depending on Main House or Carriage House room selection and weekday or weekend. (Package is subject to availability of guide and spa; taxes are included, but gratuities for guide and masseuse are not included).
