We passed this place on the way into Wilmington, but stopped in on Sunday on the way back to logan airport to meet other family members coming up to stay. went back Monday to get some that amazing smoked vermont cheddar cheese, so we could fire up the barbeque. hans down the best cheese i've ever had.

Not hard to get to, and a great view on a clear day. Right off route 9. Has a gift shop, and a museum also. Try the Vermont maple cream liqueur. Delish.

We stopped here on our way to Mt Snow. The view was pretty and the fudge from the store was delicious.

Nice overlook, you can literally see for about 50 miles. The store at the overlook has Vermont Wine and Cheese and a musuem. No need to spend more than 2 hours unless you brought your own picnic basket and want to sit on the overlook and enjoy brunch. Nice place, we enjoyed it

Stop and look! On a clear day you can see New Hampshire's Mt. Monadnock and beyond. In the fall, the colors create a multicolored carpet. In all seasons, you get a spectacular view.

An opportunity to visit some gift shops and get an ice cream treat with a long view to New Hampshire and Massachusetts to boot.

My family pulled over, parked the car and immediately got out to see the overlook. We just stood there overlooking the beautiful view while listening to a few birds chirp. It was quite nice as no one else was there. There is a cute little shop there, forgive me as I don't remember the name, but we bought a few... More
