It is such a magical time and truly is the essence of what Vermont is all about. The Okemo Valley is one of the best places to spend during this time and Columbus Day weekend is the peak! Here is a sneak peak of our favorite things Vermont things to do this weekend!</p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>Take a Hike:</strong></p> <p dir="ltr"><img alt="View from Fire tower" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6200/blog/IMG_3851.JPG" style="float: right; width: 200px; height: 150px;">&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;There are so many amazing hikes to experience within a 30 minute drive of Ludlow and all of them are the best during foliage season. Of course, one of the most popular hikes in the Okemo Valley is the <a href="https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/vermont/okemo-mountain-via-healdville-trail"> Healdville Trail</a> that leads you up the backside of <a href="https://www.okemo.com">Okemo</a>. Pack a picnic lunch and take a break at the top with a climb up the firetower at 3,340 feet!<br> &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;<img alt="Deer Leap in Killington" class="featured featured featured" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6200/blog/IMG_0722.jpg" style="width: 360px; height: 124px; float: left;">Another great hike is <a href="https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/vermont/deer-leap-overlook-trail"> Deer Leap</a> in Killington. This hike is 1.9 miles of a beautiful wooded trail that leads to a peak and opens up to grand views of <a href="https://www.killington.com">Killington</a>, <a href="https://www.picomountain.com">Pico</a>, and beyond! Better yet, you can bring your dogs! After your hike, head to <a href="http://longtrail.com/age-verification?destination=node/2">Longtrail Brewery</a> for some lunch.<br> &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;For a hike with different scenery, check out <a href="https://www.trails.com/us/vt/ludlow/cascade-falls-vt">Cascade Falls</a> in Weathersfield. The hike is about 2.9 miles from the trailhead to the summit. Along the way, you will find 84ft and 60ft waterfalls that are absolutely breathtaking. If you are looking for a day hike, continue on your way to the various peaks of Mount Ascutney!</p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>The Sights:</strong></p> <p dir="ltr">&nbsp;&nbsp; <img alt="Buttermilk Falls" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6200/blog/IMG_2243.jpg" style="float: right; width: 150px; height: 113px;">&nbsp;One of the most well known sites in Ludlow is <a href="http://www.newenglandwaterfalls.com/vt-buttermilkfalls-ludlow.html"> Buttermilk Falls</a> in the Okemo State Forest. There are 3 waterfalls to check out on a short nature hike along the river. The river is surrounded by exquisite fall colors and provides a peaceful place to enjoy the great outdoors.</p> <p dir="ltr">&nbsp;&nbsp; <img alt="The Pinnacle" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6200/blog/IMG_1002.jpg" style="float: left; width: 190px; height: 99px;">&nbsp;Another popular local spot is <a href="https://vermont.hometownlocator.com/maps/feature-map,ftc,1,fid,1459886,n,the%20pinnacle.cfm"> The Pinnacle of Ludlow</a> off of Commonwealth Avenue. There is a short secondary road that you can drive up if the gate is open, or you can choose to park at the bottom for a nice walk to the top. The Pinnacle has giant rocks to climb that overlook the entirety of Okemo Mountain. While this view is amazing all year long, it is exceptionally magical during the fall foliage.</p> <p><strong>Shopping:</strong></p> <p dir="ltr">&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;You can&rsquo;t come to Vermont for a weekend getaway without going to the <a href="https://www.vermontcountrystore.com/home">Vermont Country Store</a>, either in Weston or <img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6200/blog/the-vermont-country-store-.jpg" style="float: right; width: 160px; height: 115px;">Rockingham. This store holds all of the best items this Green Mountain state has to offer. You can fill up on samples of Vermont cheeses, meats, and dips and leave with a brown bag full of old fashioned candy. The store also carries many Vermont products, such as soaps and clothing. We promise you won&rsquo;t leave disappointed.&nbsp;<br> &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;If you are in Ludlow, you must stop by the <a href="https://www.gmsh.com">Green Mountain Sugar House</a>, located on Lake Pauline. You can stock up on maple candy and maple syrup, but the best item is their Maple ice cream. If Vermont had a taste, it would taste like a Maple Creeme!</p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>Activities and Events:</strong></p> <p dir="ltr"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6200/blog/IMG_0811.JPG" style="float: left; width: 125px; height: 110px;">&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;A personal favorite fall activity of mine is apple picking and the best local place to go is <a href="http://wellwoodorchards.net">Wellwood Orchards</a> in Springfield. Take a walk into the orchard to pick your own apples or catch a ride on the hay wagon for the real Vermont experience. Wellwood also has a petting zoo that is great for all ages!</p> <p dir="ltr"><img alt="Okemo Valley Golf Course" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6200/blog/IMG_0899.jpg" style="float: right; width: 150px; height: 110px;">&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;Another great activity is to play a round of golf at the <a href="https://www.okemo.com/activities/golf/okemo-valley-golf-club/">Okemo Valley Golf Club</a>. The course has an 18-hole layout that has a par 70 and measures 6,400 years in length. It is playable for all abilities and provides a challenge for everyone! While this is a beautiful course all year long, nothing beats the views during the fall foliage.</p> <p dir="ltr">&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;If you are looking for a true Vermont experience, head to Mount Holly for <a href="http://vermontjournal.com/event/cider-days-belmont-green/2018-10-07"> Cider Days on the Belmont Green</a>! This event runs Saturday, October 6th from 10-4pm and Sunday, October 7th from 12-4pm. You can watch how apple cider is made and even try some for yourself!

Most of our restaurants feature local ingredients and as the season is changing from summer to fall, the menus will also be changing to offer some delicious seasonal items. Read on to learn about some of our favorite spots!</p> <p dir="ltr">&nbsp;&nbsp;<img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6200/blog/tdg_02.jpg" style="height: 125px; float: left; width: 125px;" class="featured"> &nbsp;One of the most sought after restaurants in Ludlow is The Downtown Grocery, or as locals refer to it, TDG. The restaurant is owned by Vermont native, Chef Rogan Lechthaler, and his Southern wife, Abby Lechthaler. Together they have created a casual fine dining experience where the servers wear plaid, but the menu depicts food that makes you feel like you are eating the best that any big city has to offer, while using local ingredients. The menu has great staples, but the best items come from a specials board that is constantly changing. Whether you are looking for a Pimento Cheese Burger, House Made Gnocchi, or a frequent special of Shrimp and Grits, you will not be disappointed. Tip- MAKE RESERVATIONS!</p> <p dir="ltr"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6200/blog/SWC_logo_701.jpg" style="float: right; width: 250px; height: 39px;">Right across the street from TDG, is Stemwinder, an apres ski favorite. Stemwinder began with a vision from two local women, Wendy Neal and Leslie Stuart, both of which are major supporters of our Ludlow community. The idea behind the restaurant is to have good wine and craft beer with a diverse selection of small plates. They always use local ingredients and you can bet that their menu is constantly changing with the seasons. If you are new to the area, you need to try the Cheese &amp; Meat Board that has some of the BEST local offerings you can find in Ludlow.</p> <p dir="ltr">&nbsp;&nbsp; <img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6200/blog/fall-wth-logo.jpg" style="float: left; width: 175px; height: 61px;">&nbsp;A Vermont Properties favorite that we frequent quite often is Homestyle Hostel. This cute and quaint hostel, located in the heart of Ludlow is now well-known all over Vermont thanks to the creative Chef, Alyssa Prouty. Just like Stemwinder, they have a wide variety of small plates that are perfect to share with your family and friends. We highly recommend ordering many options and trying as much as possible because it is all delicious! The menu is always new and always has the best ingredients that you can find in Vermont. If you are looking for a place to stay, Homestyle Hostel is also a great option, or head across the street to their sister property, Main + Mountain, for a more traditional stay and the best cocktails in all of Ludlow.</p> <p dir="ltr">&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;<img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6200/blog/1533318786182.png" style="float: right; width: 125px; height: 125px;">Moving into its second year of being open is Mama&rsquo;s, also owned by the Lechthaler&rsquo;s. Mama&rsquo;s features all hand made Italian food that makes you feel like you are sitting in a piazza in Italy. Mama&rsquo;s is open for lunch and dinner, both of which we highly recommend. For an afternoon pick me up, try the Arancini or a classic Italian Sandwich. For dinner, start with the Caprese Not Really. I have had a lot of caprese, but nothing compared to this delicious dish. You can&rsquo;t leave Mama&rsquo;s without a glass (or two) of wine. Abby Lechthaler is passionate about serving only the best wine and is always willing to help you find your new favorite. So, as autumn moves in, try out Mama&rsquo;s for some incredible comfort food.</p> <p dir="ltr">&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;We could go on and on for days about all of the restaurant options in Ludlow, but we will stop here...for now!

Take the scenic drive on Route 100 North, where you can stop along the way to take in the beauty of many Vermont lakes. You also don&rsquo;t want to miss a visit to the <a href="https://www.gmsh.com">Green Mountain Sugar House</a> for a Maple Creeme or even take a short detour to the <a href="https://coolidgefoundation.org/the-foundation-historic-site/site/about-the-historic-site/"> Calvin Coolidge Homestead</a> where our 30th president grew up. Once arriving to Long Trail Brewery you can choose to sit in the the German inspired pub inside or along the banks of the Ottauquechee River in their lovely outdoor seating area. Long Trail always offers a great variety of seasonal beers, including a personal favorite, Blackberry Wheat. Don&rsquo;t forget to try the Loaded Nachos and the Jonas Wings; you won&rsquo;t be disappointed!</p> <p dir="ltr"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6200/blog/c5qTBaHu.jpg" style="float: left; width: 150px; height: 150px;"><a href="https://www.harpoonbrewery.com">Harpoon Brewery</a> is located in Windsor, VT, about 30 miles from Ludlow. Once again, take a scenic drive along Route 131 that follows the Black River. In the river, you will find a variety of native Vermont trout, perfect for fly fishing. So, if you have the time, breath in the fresh air and catch some fish. After spending some time in the sun, you might be thirsty, so continue on your way to Harpoon. Harpoon has a wonderful outdoor Beer Garden, along with a lively Tap Room. Choose from several Harpoon beers on tap and purchase a growler to take home with you. The kitchen is always serving several great specials, however, The Vermonter sandwich is always a great go-to!

This hidden gem was purchased by three local boys who had been dreaming up this idea since being in high school together. From the outside, the brewery looks like a factory, but the inside is a Vermont haven, filled with fishing paraphernalia and homemade tables made from Vermont trees. On the tables you will find games to play with friends, along with music playing or a sporting event being projected for all to see. On the weekends you will often find a band playing outside and a food truck serving some delicious grub in the outdoor seating area. You can try several selections of beer by the pint or a sampler tray made out of old tap handles. If they are serving Trout of Solace, be sure to give it a try!</p> <p dir="ltr"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6200/blog/RutlandBeerWorks_logo_REDblack-3-1.png" style="float: left; width: 150px; height: 79px;">Last but not least, the <a href="https://www.facebook.com/rutlandbeerworks/">Rutland Beer Works</a> was a great new addition to Vermont in 2017. The owners of <a href="https://hopnmoose.wixsite.com/hopnmoose">Hop &lsquo;N Moose</a> in downtown Rutland began this new venture to expand their love of beer and we couldn&rsquo;t be more excited. Rutland Beer Works is currently a brewery and canning facility, but their beer can be tasted at Hop &lsquo;N Moose, among other locations in the surrounding areas. There are also many places to buy cans, including <a href="http://www.brewfestbeverage.com">Brewfest Beverage</a> right here in Ludlow! However, if you are heading to Rutland, we highly recommend checking out Hop &lsquo;N Moose, both for their food and beer. They are known for their pizzas, including a personal favorite of mine, the Hawaiian.

Choosing your starting point may not be the most difficult part of your adventure, but it won&rsquo;t be easy to pick from the available options. Start from the Okemo Mountain base or the Jackson Gore base and make the 4.5 mile journey to the summit. For those looking for shade, try the 6 mile round trip Healdville Trail. A quick 9 minute drive from the base of Okemo will bring you to the neighboring town of Mount Holly, where you can enjoy the woods and wildlife of Vermont on your way up the back of Okemo Mountain. Once the top, test your limits and try to climb to the top of the fire tower. Your efforts will surely be rewarded as you stand above the treetops and appreciate all of Vermont&rsquo;s beauty.</span></span></p> &nbsp; <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span id="m_-1270593891480552581gmail-docs-internal-guid-1b7598ac-3cad-5fef-2ca6-848eeee50f39"> <span style="font-size: 11pt; font-family: Arial; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); background-color: transparent; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;"> The Vista Trail is a great option for those wishing to enjoy a hike and the beach. Located in Camp Plymouth State Park, visitors can tour the Plymouth cemetery and take in the view of Echo Lake and the state park from the Vista. Afterwards, go for a refreshing swim in the lake to cool off. Be aware that admission to the park is charged during the summer season.</span></span></p> &nbsp; <p dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span id="m_-1270593891480552581gmail-docs-internal-guid-1b7598ac-3cad-5fef-2ca6-848eeee50f39"> <span style="font-size: 11pt; font-family: Arial; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); background-color: transparent; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;"> After you&rsquo;ve finished your hike head over to the Green Mountain Sugar House located on Route 100 North for a maple creemee!
