Rest and recreation: life in a little New England town

Nestled between gentle mountains and lush forests, the cozy Vermont town of Waterbury Center invites you to enjoy its surroundings, no matter your interests. Looking for a place to simply relax and unwind? Then spend your days exploring the cozy village of Waterbury, home to quaint pubs, cafes, inns, and mom and pop shops. But if you're a lover of the great outdoors, the surrounding countryside is filled with lakes, parks, and nature preserves, making the area a giant playground for your adventures. Your Waterbury Center vacation rental is also an ideal base for visiting nearby ski resorts.

The last resort—skiing, ziplining, and other great adventures

Waterbury Center is just 25 minutes from Stowe Mountain Resort and Bolton Valley Resort, where you can ski, snowboard, ice-skate, and snowshoe throughout the winter. The backcountry sees its fair share of activity as well, with snowmobiling, dog-sledding, and sleigh rides taking place. Once the weather warms up, the resorts still provide plenty of fun in the form of gondola rides, treetop obstacle courses, hiking, and ziplining. Your Waterbury Center vacation rental never puts you far from the heart of the village where, under summer skies, you'll enjoy a weekly farmers' market, antique fairs, and free outdoor concerts.

Local legends: sampling Vermont's very best offerings

Travelers often make a beeline for Waterbury Center State Park and its 900-acre reservoir, where you can enjoy an afternoon of swimming, canoeing, kayaking, paddleboarding, and fishing. After all that exercise, you've earned the right to indulge in some local treats. For a fun Vermont experience, take a guided tour of the Ben and Jerry ice-cream factory and discover how the famed duo create their sweet concoctions. Parched travelers can sip on ale at the Cold Hollow Cider Mill or sample spirits at the Smugglers' Notch Distillery Tasting Room.

From snowfall to sunshine—what a difference a season makes

More than 100 inches of snowfall hits Waterbury Center each year, with the largest dump occurring in December and January. Severely cold winters include daytime highs below freezing and evening temperatures in the single digits. Summer is a different story, however, as temperatures climb into the 80s and humidity rises, particularly in July and August, the 2 rainiest months of the year. Late spring also sees its share of heavy rainfall. If you're visiting in the fall, make sure you book your Waterbury Center vacation rental early, as the foliage and 60-degree temperatures draw big crowds.

A Vermont valley surrounded by breathtaking beauty

Tucked away in pastoral countryside, the cozy town of Waterbury Center features a majestic backdrop, as the impressive peaks of the Green Mountains climb toward the sky. Inside the mountains lie a watery landscape, with mostly undisturbed brooks, lakes, creeks, and ponds. The region's most popular waterway, the Waterbury Reservoir, bustles with trout and bass. Nearby Mount Mansfield State Forest is home to Mount Mansfield, the state's highest peak at 4,393 feet. You can hike to Mount Mansfield's summit but make sure you stay on the marked trails and keep an eye out for black bears, moose, and bobcats.
