Head to the Northeast Kingdom to experience the true majesty of Vermont in the fall. This unspoiled area of mountains, lakes, streams and forests lets you feel closer to nature and “away from it all.” The Lakefront Inn & Motel in Island Pond, Vermont, puts you right in the midst of this beauty. Located directly on the shores of Island Pond’s pristine lake, the Inn is also within walking distance of the local village shops and restaurants. The Inn offers a choice of accommodation from a large guest suite with fireplace and full kitchen to efficiencies with kitchenettes to motel lodging to accommodate up to 4 adults per room. All rooms include all the modern conveniences of a comfortable seating area, private bath, local telephone, cable TV, and WiFi.
Take advantage of the lake by renting a kayak or boat nearby. If you have your own boat, bring it along as the Inn has its own private dock for guests to use. You’ll marvel at the magnificent scenery as the mountains take on their fall colors of red, orange and gold. Want to get even closer to nature? Take a walk along the nearby Bluff Mountain Hiking Trail.
In addition, fall in Vermont means fall festivals, the modern-day version of the old harvest festival. In the Northeast Kingdom, you can choose from a number of festivals throughout September and October. September 10-11 brings the Fall Foliage Craft Show in Lyndon Center and, on September 17, St. Johnsbury hosts Colors of the Kingdom. The Burke Fall Foliage Festival is scheduled for September 24 in East Burke and the Old Stone House, Cheese & Apple Tasting takes place in Brownington on September 25. During the week of September 26 to October 2, the Northeast Kingdom Fall Foliage Festival will be celebrated in various towns throughout the region, each on a different day. October brings Autumn on the Green in Danville on the 2nd and the 5th Annual Burketoberfest in East Burke on the 9th.
