"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."

"A mountain steeped in history, trails were first cut here in 1934, making the Snow Bowl one of Vermont’s earliest ski areas and clearing the way for a legacy of champion Middlebury College ski teams and a host of Olympians.Today three chairlifts-two triples, one double and a carpet lift- serve 17 trails, plus several gladed areas for skiing and riding in the trees. State-of-the-art snowmaking ensures quality snow even when Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate. The mountain’s historic lodge, which was expanded and remodeled in 2003, features the original fieldstone fireplace where intrepid skiers warmed their woolies in the early days before the lodge was built."
