The Green RiverGreen River map

A setting guaranteed to please even the most jaded Vermont visitor is the Green River, about 20 minutes from Brattleboro, in the extreme southeast corner of the Green Mountain State. The area is accessed by a winding country road from nearby Guilford. The Green River setting grabs you from the moment you crest a little hill and look down on the covered bridge and the Green River Bridge House right next to it. Across the road, perched on a small hill, is the former Methodist Episcopal Church with its classic white steeple. Next to the covered bridge, water thunders over a restored timber crib dam.

The tranquility of the village is almost infectious. Depending on your life experiences, it will likely conjure up feelings of refuge, or a hideaway. There is a perfection about the setting. The bridge and the dam are well-maintained.

The pictures in the slide show below are from the fall, but I am betting that this is the sort of place that looks good no matter what the season. Bring your camera!
