Where you’ll be

Calais, Vermont, United States

This area of Central Vermont, just 10 miles north of the capital, Montpelier, boasts a vibrant community.
The land abuts Curtis Pond with a dock and kayak or canoe or rowboat.
There is a wonderful local store a mile down the road in Maple Corner, as well as the home of 'the Whammy Bar' offering live music Thursdays (open mike night) through Saturdays. They also have delicious fare.
The Maple Corner Community Center is still using funds raised from 'the Men of Maple Corner' calendar to host activities such as the Fourth of July parade and party, and a Mardi Gras winter celebration in February on Curtis Pond!
There are plenty of opportunities to explore the local area's many ponds, swimming, canoeing or kayaking, skiing right from your door, hiking, and biking, local walks, and local theatre, as well as Shao Shan Zen Buddhist Temple just down the road.
In Montpelier, there are many great restaurants, a local coop, and unique shops, and of course, the capitol building (which is open for tours for those liking a little history.)
Hardwick, the 'town that food made', eleven miles to the north, provides other options for dining, as well as a local coop.
Stowe, Waitsfield, and Burlington, all an hour away, offer many further options for dining, skiing, shopping, hiking, water sports, bike paths, and simply enjoying the beauty of Vermont.
Or, stay at home at Birch Hollow, and enjoy a retreat! There is plenty to do right in the neighborhood!
