Vermont in the fall is breathtakingly beautiful and something everyone should see at least once in their lifetime.

Enjoy the Best of Vermont in the Fall in 2023

There are plenty of fantastic things to do in Brattleboro throughout the year, but in the fall, the area becomes even more breathtaking and inviting for adventures big and small. We have a fantastic guide for you when it comes to enjoying the best of Vermont in the fall.

Most trips to Vermont in the fall revolve around the outdoors and enjoying the colorful annual show Mother Nature puts on. However, enjoying Vermont in the fall is about more than taking great hikes or scenic drives. The atmosphere here is extraordinary as we celebrate the changing of the seasons.

Even if you choose to do nothing but relax in the comfort of our Vermont Bed and Breakfast, you can still enjoy some of the best views of Vermont’s fall foliage from our gardens, not to mention the retreat trails behind our Inn. When you’re up for a bit of adventure, here are a few recommendations for our favorite ways to enjoy Vermont in the fall:

  1. Take a walk through brightly colored trees! Brattleboro has several casual walking trails, including the Retreat Trails, that leave directly from behind our Vermont Bed and Breakfast. From these trails, you’ll enjoy views of a picturesque pond ringed by foliage, along with forested trails and a historic farm. There’s even a 3.5-acre bird sanctuary to enjoy. 
  2. If you want a bit more activity in your getaway, there are plenty of great fall hiking trails to take that offer breathtaking fall views. This is a great way to see the colorful landscape of Vermont in the fall! Recommended hikes include the fire tower at Molly Stark State Park, Mount Wantastiquet, and Mount Monadnock. We’d be happy to suggest even more!
  3. Biking through Vermont in the fall is also a striking way to explore the landscapes. Whether you want to enjoy a leisurely ride through downtown Brattleboro or meander windy country roads, we’re happy to help you get on your way. If you don’t want to bring your bike, rent one in downtown Brattleboro. There are also excellent local biking tours with companies like Diverse Directions.
  4. There’s nothing more striking than taking a scenic drive through the rural country roads of Vermont in the fall. Some great choices include Route 9, the Molly Stark Scenic Byway, the Brattleboro to Whitingham through Mount Snow loop, and The Connecticut River National Byway.
  5. Have you ever considered taking a relaxing and romantic train ride through the fall foliage? The Green Mountain Railroad, north of Brattleboro in Chester, offers two fantastic fall foliage excursions. The round-trip Rockingham ride is a 1-hour tour along the Connecticut River with views of two covered bridges and the Brockway Mills Gorge, while the Ludlow trip is 2 hours and travels through the Green Mountains and over a high trestle bridge.
