Explore Southern Vermont

Discover The Green Mountains, Historical Attractions, & More

Come discover the magic of southern Vermont’s Green Mountains. Explore 160 acres of unspoiled nature right here at Windham Hill Inn or venture out to the Green Mountain National Forest or to one of the nearby gardens.
Historical attractions include Hildene, the home of Abraham Lincoln’s descendants, and, of course, the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park.

Museums in the area range from the Williams College Museum of Art to the American Museum of Fly Fishing and the Vermont Raptor Center, where you can see owls, hawks, falcons and eagles.

For in-depth information on local activities in the Manchester and Stratton area, we recommend visiting the Manchester and Mountains Chamber of Commerce website. A local area guide that we often share with our guests is the Stratton Magazine, a regional lifestyle magazine that has been celebrating Southern Vermont for 45 years.
If you need more information, recommendations or assistance with arranging tours and activities, please speak to our front desk team, who are happy to guide you towards your next adventure.
