The Lake Champlain Region of Vermont is home to secluded hiking trails, sweeping vistas, gorgeous waterfront, and rolling farmland. The valley extends from the northwest shores of Lake Champlain eastward to the spine of the Green Mountains and includes Vermont’s largest city of Burlington. Four colleges and universities provide big-city sophistication and atmosphere without urban hassles. With a multitude of festivals, events, attractions, and peerless quality of life, Burlington and the Lake Champlain Region are repeatedly recognized as one of the country’s best for living, working, and visiting.
Lake Champlain, the nation’s sixth Great Lake, stretches for more than 120 miles between Vermont, New York, and Quebec. The lake sets the stage for outdoor festivals, historic exploration, and everything from swimming, sailing, and fishing to hiking, mountain biking, and skiing. Its mountain backdrop is one of the reasons author and world traveler Rudyard Kipling said that Lake Champlain was one of the most spectacular places in the world to view a sunset. All of these amenities and more are just a short drive (or even a manageable bike ride) away from Red Barn Kitchen.
