A beautiful little town

Craftsbury is a beautiful place that not many people visiting Vermont probably have on their radar. It’s small and spread out but that is what adds to the charm of this small town. The lush green foliage in the summer months makes it a great place to visit and spend time outdoors and with the leaves turning to all sorts of colors in the Autumn, Craftsbury is a beautiful multi-colored wonderland. In the winter, Craftsbury is a perfect place to go skiing and snowshoeing and walking around the snow-capped trails and hills. There’s also tons of amazing fresh farm food accessible at the markets around Craftsbury and not to mention tons of privacy in quaint little cottages. Craftsbury is definitely worth your next visit.
