Destination guide

Get your slice of bucolic Vermont in Marshfield

The soft hills of maple trees and beeches and oaks that surround little Marshfield are a reminder of just how far north you've come getting to this rustic town in the middle of Vermont's countryside. Then come the Marshfield vacation rentals themselves, which range from homey lodges with boating jetties on the Peacham Pond to timber cottages close to the swaying canopies of the Groton State Forest. Bring the walking boots, bring the sailing gear, and get ready for a trip to the sylvan valleys of Washington County.

Activities

Country magic in Marshfield

Life in Marshfield moves slowly. It flows to the rhythm of bobbing lake canoes on the region's pretty ponds, or ticks over to the clink of coffee cups and New England accents in the town's homey diners. It beats with the breathing of the forests and the tread of birders' hiking boots on the boardwalk trails around Groton Lake. And it babbles with the Winooski River and the occasional whip of a fishing rod in its currents. Marshfield vacation rentals really are your ticket to the quieter side of life.

Weather

Marshfield is hot and cold

Marshfield's seasons follow the same pattern as the rest of northern Vermont. Winter, between December and March, means plenty of snowfall. That's a great time to come if you just want to snuggle up in front of a crackling log fire after days of cross-country skiing. Spring and summer run from May to September, heralding the best hiking and boating times. And then there's fall, when many visitors book out Marshfield vacation rentals to catch a glimpse of the New England forests changing color.

Natural features

Marshfield sits in Vermont's soft hills

Marshfield is nestled in a charming little cradle of lush hills and valleys close to the heart of Vermont State. The low ridges around town are dressed in maple groves and spruce trees, sweeping out to meet the higher massifs of the CC Putnam State Forest and the Camels Hump State Park in the distance. The dense woods of the Groton State Forest are right on the doorstep though, offering untrodden Vermont countryside that's peppered with cobalt-blue ponds and stalked by moose.
