How to Pack for a Trip to Vermont
Vermont is worth a visit any time of year. In the spring and summer, nature enthusiasts abound, eager to wade in its endless swimming holes, kayak in its vast lakes and hike its hundreds of trails that lead to seemingly endless vistas. In the winter, resorts like Killington and Stowe host the northeast skiing community, who plow through powder down to bustling lodges below.
But the autumn is when Vermont shows its true colors. As the sun descends on mountains washed in burnt reds and yellows, it’s as though the entire region is bathed in a magical, sunlit hue. So for the perfect fall weekend getaway, we head to Twin Farms, a five-star resort set in the bucolic town of Barnard. Read on for our packing list.
On the to-do list are leisurely forest walks, long lunches, local antique shopping and curling up with a good book while the leaves fall outside. Little else is needed but simple items that fuse the region’s low-key, rustic vibe with classic Northeast Americana prep—a wardrobe of relaxed staples to take a traveler from enjoying endless outdoor activities to doing absolutely nothing at all.
