Vermont vacation home rentals are a great place for families to reconnect through any of the endless recreation activities available in this beautiful New England state. Try something new, such as a hot air balloon or glider ride over the gorgeous Green Mountains in the west. Or, learn how to rock climb at one of the many climbing centers. The whole family can walk the Long Trail, the oldest long-distance hiking trail in the United States, or learn something together at the Vermont Institute of Natural Science and ECHO: Lake Aquarium. Vermont is also home to Lake Champlain, the sixth largest freshwater body in the United States. Covering over 435 square miles, cast your line, rent a boat, or just swim in the clear blue waters of Lake Champlain. Other lakes to visit include Lake Seymour and Lake Rescue. The mild temperatures of a Vermont summer should be invitation enough to try some of New England's most beautiful golf courses, such as those designed by Jack Nicklaus himself, located throughout Vermont.
With more than 20 alpine ski resorts and almost 50 cross-country locations, Vermont is also a hot spot in the winter. The state boasts 4,500 acres of ski terrain with 900 trails and 150 lifts. Every level of skier will find a slope that is just right for them including those who like to snowshoe.
