Mountains and farm life inspire art throughout Vermont

Vermont and the character of life in the Green Mountain State has a very special meaning to people who live here and know this place well. Some Vermonters would say the place’s artistry is expressed through its farming and food-making culture, and its history of innovation and love of the outdoors. More-conventional forms of art are found on every side, too, inspired by the mountains, the persona of the omnipresent dairy cow, and Vermont humor. Come enjoy the state’s many galleries and artists’ workshops.

Turn back the pages of history when you stay in Kipling’s Vermont home

Did you know that Rudyard Kipling wrote the two “Jungle Books” and “Captains Courageous” in Vermont? He did, and now you can stay (for a minimum of three nights) in the home where that happened: Naulakha, now fully restored by The Landmark Trust USA and available for you to explore and enjoy. The shingled, secluded house, which the author called Naulakha, his “jewel beyond price,” includes a mini-museum with artifacts from Kipling’s life and Nobel Prize-winning career while in Vermont (he moved to the state in 1892) as well as a spacious library, game room and all the modern amenities to make your travel back in literary time a comfortable one.
