    Beyond the back of beyond

    There's getting away from it all, then there's getting away from it ALL. A Somerset vacation rental is going to set you right at the heart of the sort of vast, wild country that's the stuff of fever dreams for outdoor enthusiasts. With 16 miles of coastline, Somerset reservoir is a paradise for kayakers, sailors, and fishermen, surrounded by hundreds of thousands of acres of pristine national park, high mountains, and the occasional ski resort. Whether your tool of choice is the paddle, rod, hiking boot, or ski, chances are you'll find what you're looking for out here in the great beyond.

    No need to reserve your spot on this reservoir

    Kayakers are drawn to Somerset Reservoir like moths to a flame, with the fishermen and hikers not far behind them. Fortunately, there's more than enough space for everyone, and while jet skis, waterskiing, and wakeboarding aren't allowed on Somerset, nearby Harriman Reservoir caters to anyone with a need for speed. For those who like their velocity powered by gravity rather than engines, then winter sees buzzing downhill ski resorts at Mount Snow and Stratton Mountain. These often host big international events in the winter, while in summer you'll find golf, tennis, summer camps, and plenty of dining and shopping options.

    Road trippin' out in Windham County

    In keeping with its back-to-nature vibe, Somerset Reservoir is at the end of a dirt road, surrounded by forests, wetlands, and mountains. Meaning that if you're looking to get a bit of culture while you're on your Somerset vacation rental, you're probably going to have to get in the car. Fortunately you won't have to go very far. The arty gateway town of Brattleboro is less than an hour's drive away, while the town of Bennington, only 20 miles from Somerset, is known for its music events and history museum. It's also home to the tallest man-made structure in Vermont.

    The question is, do they make parkas thick enough?

    Set at 2,000 feet, Somerset takes a bit longer to thaw out than most of the rest of Vermont, and there can still be ice on the water well into the spring. But that's no bad thing if you've deliberately come out here for the snow. In fact, a Somerset vacation rental will put you at the heart of the South Vermont snowbelt, which consistently experiences some of the heaviest snow in the state. Good news for those ski resorts, even if the temperatures can get pretty biting at times. As for summer, expect it to be warm and humid.

    Where the wild things most definitely are

    Somerset is set way out in the great wilderness of Vermont's Green Mountains. There are a couple of busy ski resorts up there, but it's mainly pristine forest and wetland backcountry, and the scale of it isn't easy to get your head round. Want some numbers? Well, for starters, Green Mountain National Forest covers nearly 400,000 acres, with around 900 miles of trails and 8 officially recognized wilderness areas. It's home to black bear, beaver, moose, and deer, plus a massive range of bird species. Much of it can only be accessed on foot, so bring your hiking boots.
