Cabot Farmer’s Store

The Cabot side sells every kind of cheese you can think of, plus tons of free samples throughout the whole store. Crackers, cheese, jelly’s & Jams. Plenty to eat for free when you stop buy. Plus in the same building, right next door is Lake Champlain Chocolates store. Not too many samples here, but from what Michelle says its a great place for the chocolate nut.

Hildene – Lincoln Family Home

In the beautiful green mountains of VT is the home of Abraham Lincoln’s only son that survived to be an adult. The guided tour really explains life in this mansion back in the early 20th century. The surrounding grounds are truly remarkable and very beautiful.


Knights Spider Web Farm

OK, so this is a little quirky and certainly not for those with acrophobia. The original owner mastered a process to preserve and mount real spiderwebs onto wooden plaques. This is a small operation that has caught national attention due to it’s uniqueness. 45 minutes for this “something different stop.”

Morgan Horse Farm

Learn the history of the Morgan horse and take a guided stable tour. At this National Historic Site, the “Home of the Morgan,” you can tour the breeding farm of this world famous horse. One hour or a little more for this stop.
