Getting around

Guests will need own vehicle. If winter, snow tires are a must, not all season radials.
AWD or 4-wheel drive a bonus to getting around in wintery Vermont. Adding to this, please wear proper winter boots and not "city boots" on your feet or you will fall. You are responsible to sanding and salting your walkway; there is no way to predict when ice will form. We will supply the salt and sand.
