Tours are offered monthly through the fall. Reserve your place now for best selection of itinerary and rooms.
From Railroads to Wildlife: Learning Walks in Southern Vermont
Explore the picturesque woodlands of Vermont on expert-led walks, learn about fascinating local wildlife or railroad history of the area, depending on your which week you choose. 6 day tour.
At a Glance
Peaceful, pastoral and picturesque — the Vermont countryside is New England wilderness at its finest. From your home base at a quaint bed and breakfast nestled in the Dover Town Forest, take expert-led walks to experience lakeside woods, verdant mountains and breathtaking vistas. Discover the state’s colonial history and explore scenic landscapes in the Green Mountain State’s famously lush forests. Each week of this program will focus on a different topic, so choose your course: from wildlife and ecology to the history of Vermont railroads. Each theme will lead you down a different path: along railroad trails and around reservoirs or through moose habitats and along beaver ponds.
Learn by Playing: Bridge Lessons in the Green Mountains
Elevate your bridge game to new heights in the idyllic Green Mountains of Vermont, where you’ll learn about bidding, taking tricks, defensive play and much more!
At a Glance
In picturesque Vermont, award-winning, certified instructors teach concepts rather than rules and help you master the game of bridge by playing hands. Each day’s sessions include expert presentations on bidding, play of the hand and defense. By program’s end, you will have heightened your bridge skills and tested them by partnering up for a competitive but fun mini-tournament — perhaps with a jug of Vermont maple syrup as a grand prize!
