  • Hands On With Magical Miniature Horses
    We will meet for a short orientation while you enjoy a welcoming coffee or cold drink. We will then introduce you to "the herd" and select a few horses to demo how to approach them, halter and lead them, groom them. You will then be helped to choose your own horse for the day. If the weather is cooperative, we can go for a short trail walk and perhaps see some of the wildlife who seem to be more comfortable and come closer when we humans are attached to a horse! Q and A is ongoing. All questions are welcome, and we will make every effort to gear the experience to the guests' individual interests. Some may simply want the 'therapy value' of touching and communicating. Some may want information on how we care for the horses. Some may want a demo on how we show them in competition. Energetic guests may want to take a horse over a set of appropriately scaled jumps or obstacles. All can be arranged, and everyone in the group can do something different, as long as I can maintain my ability to be six places at once. It's a talent. We can also provide a special occasion for any age guest and his or her celebrants, with appropriate refreshments that you bring along or order here. Other things to note Please dress appropriately for the weather. Closed-toe shoes, please. Sunscreen and bug repellent are handy seasonally. THE MAGICAL MINIS EXPERIENCE MAKES A FABULOUS, ONE OF A KIND GIFT!

Your guide to Vermont

Welcome to Vermont

This creative independence-prizing state unfurls dreamy beauty at every turn, from snowy mountains to emerald fields, and the bright kaleidoscope of fall foliage behind white church spires, not to mention scarlet barns and the country’s densest patch of covered bridges. The romance of small-town New England lies around every bend. Soaking up the scenery remains a huge draw in Vermont. But visitors also ski in Stowe, Killington, and Mad River Glen. Cross-country fans and snowshoers can hit the 300-mile Catamount Trail and one of the East Coast’s premier recreational networks, the Kingdom Trails, stretching over private lands. In warmer seasons, the route remains popular among hikers and horseback riders. Make sure to stay fueled up with some of the state’s outstanding specialties, which range from cheese to craft brews.


How do I get around Vermont?

Vermont’s main airport is Burlington International (BTV). It turned 100 in 2020, and continues to offer jaw-dropping views of Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains to passengers in window seats. On the ground, you’ll find rental cars and ample ground transport, including taxis. Visitors also rely on Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS), 208 miles southeast of Vermont’s center, and Canada’s Montréal-Trudeau International Airport (YUL), 116 miles northwest. Train travel can be a wonderful alternative, and bus routes also lace the region. Rideshares operate in Vermont too. Driving remains a popular option, with straightforward interstates running north to south. But get a good navigation app or mapwise friend for journeys across the state. The routes get byzantine quickly, and many mountain passes close in winter.


When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Vermont?

Locals like to joke that northern New England has just two seasons: winter and August. That said, May to mid-October brings pleasant temperatures, while avoiding winter’s snow and the worst of the mud season in April. Fans of snow sports should visit in February, when the Stowe Derby pits downhill skis against cross-country ones (the route requires both, but participants must pick just one). Spring also shepherds in the Vermont Maple Festival, while July showcases the state’s cheesemaking prowess (expect samples of chocolate, beer, wine, and spirits too). Catch acclaimed chamber musicians during summer’s Marlboro Music Festival and the state fair in mid-September. Leaf-peeping kicks off from then and runs through October: check a foliage forecaster for the peak splendor.


What are the top things to do in Vermont?

Brookfield Floating Bridge

Since 1820, one of America’s only floating bridges has spanned Sunset Lake here, 53 miles southeast of Burlington. Now in its eighth iteration, it forms part of Route 65, is fully accessible, and relies on modern materials like durable fiber-reinforced polymer pontoons. Timber decking preserves its historic look and makes for a picturesque stop.

Dog Chapel

A folk artist built this celebration to man’s best friend in 2000, following a grave illness and two-month coma. Styled like an 1820 white-steepled village church, it sits among the pastures and rolling mountains of St. Johnsbury, Vermont. Light from canine-themed stained glass spills across dog carvings, as well as notes and photos of visitors’ beloved pups. It also provides treats for any dogs tagging along, who can run, swim, and explore the property’s obstacle course sans leashes. Volunteers maintain this free attraction, which welcomes “All creeds, all breeds. No dogmas allowed.”

The Robert Frost Interpretive Trail

Take the road less traveled — or rather this National Recreation Trail in the Green Mountain National Forest. Poems by Robert Frost feature along this easy, flat 1.2-mile loop, running through woods, fields, and berry patches. Wheelchair users can access the first third of a mile, where a boardwalk crosses a beaver pond.
