Well, the cold temperatures have delayed the maple sugaring season, but we’re hoping to gather sap today and next week! Next weekend, if you’re interested in experiencing the Vermont tradition of sugaring, the the Middleton Springs Historical Society hosts its Maple Festival – http://www.middletownspringshistoricalsociety.org/events-maple.html
Applewood Manor B&B is located near picturesque Castleton village in the Lakes Region of South Central Vermont, close to Vermont’s Green Mountains, Rutland, Poultney, Fair Haven, Lake Bomoseen and nearby colleges. It’s an ideal getaway base for exploring the state’s beautiful scenery, many attractions, such as Shelburne Museum, and historic sites, such as Hubbardton Battlefield and Fort Ticonderoga. In summer, hiking, fishing, kayaking, horse-riding, swimming, golfing are all close-by, and there are great roads for biking and motorcycling! In winter, there is skiing at Killington & Okemo, X-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and ice-fishing. Castleton State College is within walking distance, Green Mountain College is close, and Middlebury is about thirty minutes away. Of course, if you don’t want to go anywhere or do anything, relax at the bed & breakfast in our lovely guest rooms, on the porch, or at the swimming pool in summer, or walk the trails to the river or through our woodlands at any time of year!
