Pull those soft flannel shirts and worn leather shoes from your closet. It’s time to make cinematic moments in the rustic state of Vermont, where maple candy and hearty American breakfast welcomes travelers year round. Whether tasting iced cider from Eden’s local orchards or bantering in border-town French, hang your boots in one of the welcoming Newport, Vermont, hotels.
Abundant, unspoiled nature awaits just outside your door in this northern land. And the hotels near Newport, Vermont, are charming destinations in and of themselves. Each is a small beacon of the town’s motto: “Newport: Genuine by Nature, Active by Nature, and Fresh by Nature.” Exploring the area, you’ll feel like a local walking in the shade of leafy trees and catching your first breath of clear lake air. After a slow morning at one of the hotels in Newport or an hour mushing your own dog-sled team, head to the town’s Northeast Kingdom Tasting Center. These downtown meals often come with that extra fresh, farm-to-table seal Newport is known for.
If you’re curious what lies beyond the city, rent a car near Newport and head north. Board a cruise across the Canadian border toward Magog, the nearby province of Quebec, and listen for whispers of Lake Memphremagog’s ancient monster. Legend has it that Viking petroglyphs hide in a nearby mountain summit -- glyphs depicting a swimming serpent. The great Memphre monster lives in the depths of the lake waters, a relic of the Cretaceous Period and surreptitious keeper of Magog town lore.
