Vermont Vacation Homes Offer a Stay in Winter Wonderland

Vermont, a state in the far northeastern region of the United States, is dotted with ski resorts, many of them with names that indicate a colorful history; Smuggler's Notch, Mad River Glen, and Suicide Six, among others, draw thousands of tourists every winter. Skiing is not the only attraction at these resorts. Snowboarding and snowmobile courses are also popular, along with a host of other winter sports. Visitors will also enjoy the small-town ambiance is most of these resorts, where downtown streets still feature buildings constructed during the 1800s, many of them displaying classic Victorian architecture.

Summer is also a popular season for tourists. All year long, Lake Champlain offers activities to tourists, from ice fishing during the colder months to trout tournaments in the summer. State parks, historic sites, and golf courses across the state also draw tourists who enjoy extended stays in vacation rentals in Vermont. In fact, the state is so popular for tourists that almost 15 per cent of all housing units are used to provide holiday housing. Only Maine has a higher percentage of housing reserved for visitors to the state. Some of the cities in Vermont with the most housing for visitors are Ludlow, Stowe, and Manchester.

Locals enjoy hunting, but visitors to the state should be certain to check seasonal regulations; hunting is controlled for certain species including wild turkeys, moose, deer, and black bears. A local delicacy not to be missed is Vermont maple syrup; some restaurants actually serve it with dill pickles to temper its extreme sweetness.
