Vermont offers many Adventures

We are located in central Vermont on the eastern shores of Lake Champlain.  The best of all worlds with fishing from our premises on Otter Creek or boating & swimming on Lake Champlain. In Vermont, we have a diversified landscape from the lake to the beautiful Green Mountains that run down the spine in the middle of Vermont from north to south.  They offer several awesome ski areas, hiking trails (such as The Long Trail), numerous rivers and mountain lakes to fish for rainbow trout, brookies or take a dip in the cool refreshing, clear pools carved out from the rocks and cliffs. Also, the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York are within driving distance offering lovely mountain lakes, Great Escape theme park, Lake Placid and so much more!
