Vermont is a special place for my family, Mom and Dad had a cottage there years ago and my memories from that time are sweet. My Mom and I, with my kids and my nephew, were lucky enough to rent a charming cottage with its own spectacular Koi fish pond this summer in Cabot, Vermont. We created some new memories of our own hiking Mount Mansfield, jumping off cliffs at Warren Falls, bicycling in Stowe, visiting the Cabot Cheese Factory, making tie-dye shirts and swimming in our own Koi filled pond. Mom would have taken that screened porch home if she could have. Vermont did not disappoint.
