With temperatures at an all-time high, heat lightning & thunderstorms abound & steamy commutes to and from work, we need a place to beat the heat! We’ve teamed up with nine of our local experts in each of the states William Raveis Real Estate occupies to bring you the best places to relax and cool down for the remainder of the summer.

Kathy Burns, one of our top agents in Ludlow, Vermont tells us exactly how she relaxes after work on summer weekends.  “Buttermilk Falls is a series of waterfalls and swimming holes attached to the Branch Brook which is part of the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation.  I go with my husband and two daughters to swim in the fresh pools to cool off during the heat.”

Mount Holly a Special Place in the Valley!

At just 49 square miles, Mount Holly is a small town with so much to offer. This little town of rural simplicity is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the day. Year round, take in the farms and fields dotted along the dirt roads and rolling hills as the backdrop to spectacular views of the valleys and mountains. While the town has much to offer in the warmer months due to its proximity to Star Lake and Lake Ninevah, it surely cannot be overlooked in the winter months!

When you decide to take some time off the Mountain to explore the various towns surrounding Okemo be sure to make some time for the miles of V.A.S.T trails in Mount Holly or just walk around the village and say hi to the locals.

This special town takes real pride in their community events from their special 4th of July celebration to Columbus weekend, the folks in Mount Holly come together to appreciate what they have and invite everyone to join in their celebrations.

The next time you are in town and thinking that you might want to venture out of Ludlow village, take a short drive up the scenic 100 byway to Mount Holly. You will be glad you came!

Next week we will take a ride up the road to Plymouth.
