Dog Friendly Snowshoeing, Cross-Country Skiing, Hiking in winter and dog friendly swimming, picnicing, and adventuring in spring, summer, and fall...
Whether you and your dog(s) are looking to reconnect with
nature, take a leisurely stroll or explore the back woods of Vermont, there are literally
hundreds of dog friendly hiking trails, mountains, lakes, rail trails, and quiet retreats spread
for every level throughout the Vermont region. Dogs are
welcome in ALL of these spots that we reccommend.
It is our greatest pleasure to share this incredible region
with you! Upon checking in we are happy to provide suggestions
based upon your desires and driving directions to each.
Please note that we are often asked "Can my dog be
off-leash on these trails." Well our answer is that
there is a "leash law" in every state but we have
"experienced" responsible dog owners who respect
the land. We suggest that you use your own judgement when
hiking with your dog off leash.
Some of these spots do offer boat rentals for Paw House
Also, in case you have not heard about the worldwide treasure
hunt known as "Geocaching,"
we encourage you to check it out! There are some fantastic
caches in and around the surrounding towns and hiking locales.
possible we've tried to provide you with different
websites that help convey the specialness of some
of our favorites. But nothing beats the real McCoy!
And - believe it or not - within minutes of the inn
there are many, many more spots just waiting to be
discovered by YOU! Come visit us soon!
of the Long Trail - a bounding river cuts through
great vistas, fields of wildflowers in the fall, great climbs.
Downstream is an indeal swimming hole where you and

the river bank. (Here's Bruno enjoying the view...)
