Destination guide

A sparkling blue lake in the Green Mountain State

Situated at the tip of Lake Memphremagog and near the Canadian border, this little town represents all of Vermont's charms. From an adorable main street winding through downtown to a stunning waterfront leading out to a ton of lakefront activities, visitors and residents alike are never short on things to do and see. Whether you enjoy the local flavors at a farm-to-table spot in town, or laze away the day on a boat charter, one thing is for sure: mixing the local hospitality with a charming Vermont vacation rental means an experience that's sure to feel perfectly local.

Things to do

Pronouncing Memphremagog isn't the only fun to be had

At first glance, it's clear that the best way to enjoy Newport is by staying outdoors. From bike charters to birdwatching, there's plenty to see around Lake Memphremagog. But your travel squad doesn't have to consitst solely of Sierra Club members -- there's plenty to love about Newport's indoor acitivities, too. The dining scene downtown offers insight to the local flavors, and local boutiques feature wares from resident artisans. Take in some works at the MAC Center for the Arts, or hop in the car for a roadtrip around the region to truly enjoy the stunning scenery.

Activities

Lots and lots of love for local lakefront living

A lakefront marina means prime boating and fishing opportunities, while downtown Newport plays host to a variety of music festivals, sporting events, book fairs, and annual holiday celebrations -- all to the delight of visitors and locals. In winter, a short drive means amazing skiing in Vermont or Canada, while summer has no shortge of things to do. Hiking and biking can be enjoyed throughout the area, along a path winding around Lake Memphremagog's waterfront. For the best real estate, look for a Newport vacation rental right on the water, ideal for prime views and picturesque landscapes.

Weather

Winter really doesn't last forever, we swear

Vermont, like much of New England, celebrates all 4 distinct seasons, but winter lasts the longest this far north. Snowflakes have been known to fall in October, and can be spotted in May, but it isn't bad news. As the weather warms, summer is well worth the wait in Newport. Days on the lake are clear and bright, making the long, dark winters feel like a distant memory. Fall eases back in cooler temps and some rainy days, but softens the blow with vibrant leaves and pumpkin spice everything.

Natural features

Bonus points if you can say Memphremagog three times fast

Sitting at the bottom of Lake Memphremagog, Newport benefits from its waterfront locale -- and you can too, with the right Newport vacation rental. The town thrives on the water, complete with a beach and campground. A variety of wildlife, from birds to sealife, also populate the area nearly year round, and ski resorts are easily accessible from Newport for snowbunnies traveling north for the winter. Leafpeeping is New England's most famous fall activity, and one that shouldn't be missed for travelers visiting from September through November.
