Lake Morey ResortLook at all Lake Morey Resort has to offer.  Set on a 600-acre mountain lake, Lake Morey Resort provides recreation opportunities for everyone.  Spend the day on the lake paddleboarding, kayaking, or canoeing.  Want a little more action? Try waterskiing, wake boarding, or tubing. The premises also have tennis courts, volleyball, basketball, indoor pool and health club. For those looking for something a little less strenuous, the resort includes an impeccably maintained golf course.  Or you could just sit quietly and let the magnificent scenery soothe and relax.

Billings Farm & MuseumAlthough there is so much to do on site, the local area includes intriguing options.  Families will enjoy the Billings Farm and Museum in Woodstock, a working dairy farm with a long history.  Just across the road you will find the Billings-Marsh-Rockefeller National Historic Park dedicated to land stewardship and conservation.  The park’s mansion is the boyhood home of George Perkins Marsh, one of America’s first conservationists.

Simon PearceHead into Woodstock village for a taste of quintessential Vermont.  Stroll the tree-lined streets and visit local shops, some as old as the town itself. A “must-see” is Quechee Gorge in nearby Quechee, Vermont’s Little Grand Canyon.  View the gorge 162 feet above the Ottauquechee River or hike the many trails. Visit Simon Pearce Glass, also in Quechee, to watch the creation of hand-blown glass and handmade pottery.  For a treat, plan your day to lunch in the Simon Pearce restaurant.

In Vermont, many weekends throughout the year include festivals and fairs. You’ll find everything from traditional country fairs to brewfests to arts and crafts shows.  Check the Calendar of Events for events that might interest you.
