Dogs are welcome at these two comfy, cozy properties in the Vermont countryside

Taking a Vermont vacation but leaving the dog at home? Don’t even think about it! The Landmark Trust USA has two delightful, picturesque properties that welcome up to two dogs each. The Sugarhouse, a rustic cabin at the edge of a stand of maples still used for sugaring in the spring, is just perfect for two and a pooch (or two). It’s located on the trust’s historic Scott Farm, so close to apple picking. Enjoy the screened porch or set out for great hiking – and cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. The barn-red Amos Brown House sleeps six, and you can literally walk out the door to hiking (there’s a lovely old roadway that meanders through the woods), biking, bird-watching, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
