Did we mention that Vermont has some great food? Stop by the NEK Tasting Center to try a little bit of what our farmers and producers have to offer.

Sightseeing
If you are in our neck of the woods, then we have to send you down the road to take a peek at beautiful Lake Willoughby. Flanked on either side by Mt. Pisgah and Mt. Hor, and reminiscent of a Scottish Loch, Willoughby is, in our opinion, one of the most beautiful lakes in New England - don't miss it!
