Grafton Trails & Outdoor CenterStratton Mountain ResortIf your idea of outdoor activities is limited to golf, there are a number of nearby courses.  Why not try the 27 holes available at Stratton Mountain?  Choose between the Forest, the Lake or the Mountain courses.

If your idea of a vacation runs more toward museums, galleries, and general sightseeing, The Grafton Inn is ideally situated to keep you busy and well satisfied.  You’ll find everything from the Brattleboro Museum with its modern art to the Grafton History Museum.  You might even want to take in some fabulous summer theater at the Weston Playhouse. The Inn’s staff is happy to help you discover local sights, find your way, or suggest things to do.

New England Center for the Circus ArtsThroughout the year, Vermont celebrates its beauty, its ties to the land, and its New England traditions with fairs and festivals.  For an old-fashioned country fair, check out the Bondville Fair in Bondville on August 25 and be part of this 220 year tradition.  Or head to Manchester for the Manchester Food & Wine Classic from August 25-27 and celebrate fine wine, gourmet cuisine and excellent entertainment. For something totally different, attend the open house at the new home of the New England Center for Circus Acts in Brattleboro.  Watch a trapeze act, learn to juggle, and tour this fascinating facility.

Wherever your interests lie, the Grafton Inn is the ideal headquarters for your adventures. Even if your visit to Vermont is more about relaxing than doing, the Grafton Inn offers the tranquility and natural beauty that will renew and refresh. Plan your summer getaway today.
