"Welcome to Bomoseen State Park. The 3,576-acre park is located in the Taconic Mountains on the shores of Lake Bomoseen, the largest lake entirely within Vermont’s borders. The Taconics are the slate-producing region of Vermont, and the area's history parallels the rise and fall of Vermont's slate industry. The park contains several quarry holes and their adjacent colorful slate rubble piles as reminders of this period. These quarries provided slate for the West Castleton Railroad and Slate Company, a complex of 60 to 70 buildings that stood between Glen Lake and Lake Bomoseen. Several slate buildings and foundations remain in the park. A self-guided Slate History Trail leads hikers through remnants of this bygone era."

"Branbury is located on the eastern shore of Lake Dunmore at the base of Mt. Moosalamoo. The Green Mountain National Forest is its neighbor to the east. Historically, the 69-acre park operated as a farm at the turn of the century, then as a guest house, summer boy's camp and private beach and picnic area. In 1945, it became Branbury (Brandon-Salisbury) State Park. The 1000 foot natural sandy beach, clean, clear Lake Dunmore, and the large open grassy areas make the area very popular for swimming, sunning, or picnicking."

"After nearly 20 years of growing grapes on our farm, we’ve started down a new path. We’ve narrowed our focus to our best wines— to make them even better. It’s our red wines— among all our whites and rosés recognized for their excellence over the years— that have garnered the most acclaim. Lincoln Peak Vineyard— our land, our people, our vines— combines all the elements to make great reds. We have rocky limestone soil on a hilltop in the Champlain Valley; the long days and cool nights of our northern location; years of experience producing wines that delight palates and defy expectations."
