Our favorite places to eat and relax around the area.
Great food! The seafood is always fresh. The live music is always great! Good arcade for the kids or the kid in you. There is usually a wait on a Friday or Saturday night. Go up stairs on top of the arcade, grab a drink and play some ski ball while waiting for your table.

Somerset Reservoir is a large lake in southern Vermont that is nestled deep within the Green Mountain National Forest. The lake is actually a dammed section of the Deerfield River, and is roughly 6.5 miles long and covers 1568 acres. The shoreline is totally undeveloped, but there is a small boat launch, some picnic tables, and a porta potty for those who come to recreate. The lake sits at 2,000 feet above sea level, so it’s a great place to cool off in the summer. The winter snows don’t melt here until May. Winds can be fierce here, and it’s an excellent spot to bring a small sailboat, fishing boats, canoes, or kayaks. Boats with motors can not exceed speeds of 10 miles per hour. Paddling around Somerset on a rare calm day is an amazing experience. You may see loons, ducks, or mergansers, and moose, deer, and black bears are also common along the shore. Anglers come from all over to fish for smallmouth bass and trout. You will find the boat launch at the southern end of the lake, and if you go during the week, you may not see another boat or another person. Summer weekends can be busy, but because the lake is so big, you will always find solitude on the water or hiking trails. There is an extensive trail network in Green Mountain National Forest, and the East Branch Trail runs along the east side of Somerset Reservoir, all the way to Grout Pond, which is just north of Somerset. Mountain bikers use the trail, and it is part of the Catamount cross-country ski trail that runs the length of Vermont. The lake remains an unspoiled treasure in Vermont, perhaps because you must travel 10 miles on a dirt road to get there. Whatever the reason, this beautiful Vermont lake is definitely worth a visit.

https://www.doververmont.com/valley-trail Located in the town of Dover, the finished Valley Trail will be a scenic pedestrian and bicycle pathway approximately five miles in length. Located mostly on private lands, the Trail will connect Mount Snow in the north with the West Dover Historic District and village in the south. The proposed trail will provide important transportation benefits for the community, linking the shopping areas and recreational amenities. It will also serve as an important link between several extensive mountain bike trails in Dover and proposed trails in Wilmington, allowing riders to bypass Route 100. The Valley Trail is designed to benefit both the town's 1500 residents as well as the 600,000 visitors each year who come to Dover to rest, enjoy the rural countryside, and to participate in the area's many amenities and recreational activities.

Golf
Vermont has a reputation for golf courses with amazing views and unique layouts.
https://www.mountsnow.com/golf/ The Mount Snow Golf Course has matured into one of Vermont's premier mountain courses and has been rated one of the top five in the state by Golf Digest. Designed by New England course architect Geoffrey Cornish, our 18-hole championship course has also been named one of the top 10 resort courses in the country by SKI Magazine.

https://brattleborocountryclub.com/ The course measures 6,533 from the tips (71.1, 126 slope), 6,073 from the regular tees (69.1/122), 5,051 from the forward tees (64.2/112 for men; 69.8/114 for women). A hole-by-hole guide follows, but it will be tough to pick a favorite. The challenging par-5 second, that heads up a hill, takes a right turn to a narrow strip of fairway only to head up another hill for the third shot? The drivable par-4 sixth? The risk-reward of the par-5 seventh? Or the long march of the par-4 eleventh? These are other questions are best answered by teeing it up for another round. “Every hole is unique. Some golf courses you won’t remember one hole from the next.” You remember the holes here. Vermont Business Magazine agrees, naming the BCC as the 2017 Best of Business Awards (BOB Awards) winner as Best Golf Course for Windham/Windsor Counties – and again in 2018 and 2019.

Stratton's first nine opened for play in 1964, followed by two more nine-hole layouts, with each taking full advantage of the mountain landscape. A multi-year project has restored the fairways, sculpted the greens and rebuilt bunkers to reflect the original Geoffrey Cornish blueprint.
