Around the Area
If you don't know Washington County, you have a treat in store.
Winding country roads lead you to hidden spots of beauty and charm. The Battenkill Valley region of the county is especially beautiful with the river winding through hills and fields.
Life in the country is very much in tune with the changing seasons.
Very early spring means maple syrup time. Visit a sap house - just
minutes away - and purchase the real thing to take home.
A little later in the year, you can fish the famous Battenkill for trout, or go tubing down that lovely river. Take a canoe out on Cossayuna Lake or on the quiet waters of Carter's Pond.
Autumn offers the season's spectacular sights and smells - the
abundant harvest, apple picking, cider pressing, the glorious
pageant of changing leaves.
When winter whitens the rounded hills, you'll enjoy skating, skiing
(downhill or cross-country), ice fishing. Choose a Christmas tree to
Visit Gardenworks for a lovely supply of holiday greenery.
