What can I say as a second home owner in Vermont? Lots actually, but maybe I will write a book someday. We bought our little cabin in 2004 and have enjoyed it for fishing, skiing, hiking and getting to know the natives. There is a saying in Vermont that you aren't a native until the last person who knows you dies. Pretty much sums it up. The best thing about Vermont is that the pace of life is different there. I have been all around the world for my work and I can say that my favorite thing to do is sit on the porch of the cabin with a good book and watch the world go by. Especially in the fall. There is something different about the light that exists in Vermont, it is very different than Connecticut where I live. Particularly at dusk, the fall maples seem to catch fire and I have not seen it anywhere else. There is much else in Vermont such as Cows, Sheep, Goats and Patridge (that's how they pronounce Partridge there), but that's for another day.
