Along with the amazing view and the well-stocked gift shop, this place is worth a stop for the natural museum alone, especially if you are a bird person. There’s a magnificent display of all types of birds that have been preserved (taxidermy style) as well...More

This is such a stunning view, so wide, so much colour, worth the visit alone. We will remember the view, recommended by a UK colleague forever. The 'gift shop' not so much. Could have been anywhere.

Cute store offering all Vermont specialties. Great view! On a major curve on highway so tricky to leave street parking safely.

Before you even go in the gift shop the view is amazing! The store is full of clothes, toys, souvenirs and CHEESE. The cheese is delicious! A must stop!

This gift shop has a great "boardwalk" outside where you can stroll to take in the lovely mountain views. There are also outdoor picnic tables on the deck where you can eat the delicious ice cream for sale inside. There's lots of "Vermontiana" for sale...More
