Outstanding natural beauty, great recreational opportunities, and unspoiled Vermont villages combine with modern shopping and services, lodging, and restaurants in this area of the Lamoille River Valley to provide visitors a unique experience.

During the winter months a few miles of Route 108 are closed at the summit, and the Notch becomes a haven for snowshoeing, skiing, and ice climbing. With two major ski resorts adjacent to the Notch, it remains the focal point of activity throughout the year. At Jeffersonville, Route 108 and the cold, clear Brewster River winding alongside it meet with Route 15, the area's main east-west highway, and with the larger Lamoille River. All this makes the area both easily accessible and rich in places to hike, canoe, fish, bike, and relax.

  Honey Gardens [ Apitherapy raw honey from Champlain Valley ] - see 'recipes'
Apitherapy honey has never been heated or filtered, and thus it retains the beneficial traces of pollen, propolis, and beeswax, which the flowers and bees have put there. These contain healthful minerals, vitamins, enzymes, amino acids, and carbohydrates. Honey forms crystals around these particles, which you see on the surface or by holding a jar up to the light. Within a month or so after the fall harvest, Apitherapy honey will crystallize. To soften or reliquefy honey, place it in a warm place or in warm water.
