Summer is coming to an end, but leaf-peeping season is right around the corner! Vermont has so much to offer in its colder seasons: corn mazes, pumpkin patches, apple cider donuts, and of course the colorful scenery we're so known for. One of the best ways to get up close and personal with Vermont's farms, communities, landscape, and local food scene is staying at a locally-owned bed and breakfast!
