About Vermont


Vermont is the second smallest state in terms of population (it has 609,000 residents) and the sixth smallest in geographic area. Lake Champlain, the nation's sixth-largest freshwater body lies at the northwest border with New York State and Canada. The state is split east-west by the Green Mountains, which are popular for recreational activities. The eastern border with New Hampshire is defined by the Connecticut River. Vermont is the only landlocked state in New England which leads to its often being short-changed in guides to the region.

The state is extremely rural, its valleys littered with farms. Its largest city is Burlington, pop. 38,889. Among the state's major exports are cheese, maple syrup, marble, slate, and granite.

Tourism is also a very large industry in Vermont, as skiers travel from Boston, New York, Canada, and elsewhere to ski resorts up and down the Green Mountain spine during the winter. In summer, the many bed and breakfasts fill up with couples and families wanting to visit the state's small towns and wild areas. Vermont's autumn foliage is known for being the most spectacular in the country, and possibly the world. It occurs quite early -- usually mid-September to mid-October.

Cedar Grove Farm

Barnet, Caledonia County, Vermont

Welcome to Cedar Grove Farm. Established in 1835, this countryside retreat has been lovingly restored and expanded by its current owners. With Panoramic views of the charming village of Peacham, Vermont, in what is perhaps the best kept secret of the Northeast. Vermont's Northeast Kingdom is a secluded destination just a short drive from New York City, Boston, Canada, and Maine's dramatic shoreline. This 133 acre estate is the perfect balance of modern efficiency and historic craftsmanship. Upon entering the well appointed main house, one is greeted with the charm of this quintessential Vermont farmhouse. The large open kitchen and great room provide the perfect setting for entertaining friends and family. The exposed timber-frame, wide plank flooring, and expansive fireplaces overlook the meticulously manicured English Garden, and invite onlookers to wander through the courtyard into the orchards, organic gardens and seemingly endless trails. The expansive Gazebo overlooks the private beach and pond that so perfectly reflects images of the unspoiled Vermont countryside, passing clouds and original barn with round silo. Situated just a short distance from hundreds of lakes, ponds, cycling, walking, ski, and snowshoe trails, this region is home to many artists, authors, and a growing local food movement. Cedar Grove Farm may continue as a retreat for its new owners' sole use, or could easily be a destination for equestrians, organic gardeners, musicians or naturalists.
