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.

75 Acre Potential Horse Property with Amazing Lake Champlain Views!

Vergennes, Addison County, Vermont

Your first impression as you approach this property is one of utter and complete privacy as you negotiate the wood lined private drive. Breaking out into the open you get your first glimpse of this marvelous family compound perched on the hill above, sited in the middle of the 75 acres that are included. As you wander the grounds, phrases that come to mind include "Big Sky" view and even "Tuscany" as you sample the views from the main house over the vineyard and pond to the westerly horizon which is totally consumed by the stately Adirondack Mountains of New York . Not to exaggerate, but this view is truly one in a million! The home has been freshly painted inside and out over the last year and offers 3 forms of heating and cooling all powered by wood or electricity produced by the private two year old solar array. If harvesting grapes and the power of the sun while enjoying complete privacy and killer views are on your check list for your next home, feel free to put this home on your must-see list.
