Vermont is known throughout the world for their delectable maple syrup. For a chance to see some of these enchanting trees up close and personal, a visit to Gifford Woods State Park is in order. It is the perfect spot to explore old-growth hardwood trees, including sugar maples and beeches. To make this visit even more magical this time of year, bring along some eggs and baskets and plan an Easter egg hunt for your crew. To make it really special, stuff the eggs with some gourmet maple caramels from the local candy shop. Green Mountain Sugar House is the perfect shop to stock up on supplies of maple products, Vermont cheeses, and candy galore. This red-roofed gem is so much fun, we recommend going at the start of your visit so you can spend your holiday weekend sampling all of the unique goodies before returning to stock up on Easter gifts and treats for everyone back home.
When spring is making its debut, there’s no better place to visit than a country farm. Here is where we all learn how the world really works. Billings Farm & Museum is a perfect way to experience Vermont in all of its glory. See how a fully operational dairy farm operates, take in some of America’s favorite history, and pick up some goodies for yourself along the way.
If the weather is permitting, we highly recommend you enjoy some of the hiking trails. A popular option is Thundering Brook Falls, an incredibly easy and handicap accessible trail that leads you to the sixth largest waterfall in Vermont. Reaching the end of this trail and soaking in the truly magnificent sight of the roaring water spilling over the rocks will leave you feeling energized and fulfilled. Looking for a bigger challenge? Don’t underestimate the long-distance Appalachian and Long Trails that both cut through the town, so you can easily tackle a section of the trail to suit your level of comfort.

While all of these things come standard with all of our Easter rentals, there are other things to consider adding to your wish list. All rentals are not created equally, so you might find that you prefer one of our ski-in/ski-out rentals that allows you to take maximum advantage of the ski slopes proximity. These rentals often come with resort amenities such as a workout gym, indoor pool, and hot tub (though you should confirm the amenities before booking). We also have condo like rentals located closer to town with is perfect for guests that love to be close to the action of restaurants, pubs, shopping, and the bustle of a holiday weekend in town. On the contrary, some guests prefer the quiet of the woods – trading in the noise of the city shuttle (which is a free service, by the way) for the sound of whispering pine. In this case, check out houses for rent for a true Easter getaway.
