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. (This excerpt taken from the Branbury State Park website)
The long summer days and cool nights of our northern location, along with the rocky soil of our hilltop, give us the perfect conditions to produce red wine grapes. The Marquette and Farnsworth grapes that we cultivate create wines unlike any others in the world. Marquette wines have deep cherry and brambly flavors with notes of black pepper and spice. Farnsworth wines are rich with tannins and flavors of black fruits. We pick the grapes by hand and create wines in small batches. We process the grapes with a light touch to allow the full complexity of our terroir to express itself. (This excerpt taken from the Lincoln Peak Vineyard website)

Neshobe Golf Club image
Brandon, VT
(range: 12 miles)
Our par-72 Championship course lies amongst woods, farm and pasture land, and rolling hills. While Neshobe GC affords beautiful mountain views in all directions, it is not a typical “mountain course”, having no severe up- or down-hill lies or blind shots. Clearly, it is a tribute to our Course Superintendent and his expert staff that players rave about the conditions, featuring 18 distinctive holes which provide a variety of challenges to all facets of the game. (This excerpt taken from the Neshobe Golf Club website)
