Southern Vermont’s Deerfield Valley is home to Mount Snow Resort and Carinthia, as well as the valley towns of Wilmington, Dover and Whitingham. The Mount Snow area is the closest Vermont recreation area to NYC and Boston.

We are located on a quiet, level lake road off Route 9, convenient to Route 100 via Higgly Hill Road. 10 minute drive into town of Wilmington, 15 minute drive (7 miles) to Mt. Snow ski area. Cross country ski from the house on local ski trails and snow covered roads.

Wilmington is a small town with a large grocery store, pharmacy, 2 hardware stores, bowling, movie theatre (in West Dover), a brewpub, and several restaurants. Larger towns of Bennington and Brattleboro are a 20-30 minute drive away. Mass MoCa (art museum in North Adams MA) is 40 minutes drive.

Summer attractions include Marlboro Music Festival (chamber music), blueberry picking, hiking, biking, swimming, paddling, and local festivals for art/tasting/music. Fall foliage scenery is unforgettable.
