As the Vermont forests burst into their legendary palette of colors, moods and routines change. Embrace the sweater, don the fleece, and pull up a chair to a bonfire on the beach. Gather round with food and a beverage, and let the storytelling begin. Return to your cozy cottage where soft light illuminates the windows and enjoy a hot cup of tea before bedtime. Each day a new shade of color appears on the mountainside, and as the leaves slowly begin to drop, hikers rustling through the leaves can see clearly in all directions from the peaks and ridges.
