BROWNSVILLE, Vermont — With all the news on “green living” and minimizing our “carbon footprints” that we hear about lately, one often wonders “What can I do to help, and, just maybe, have some fun in the process?” Well, if you’re planning to spend a nice vacation at Ascutney Mountain Resort in Brownsville, Vermont, you can take the original public transportation: the train! Amtrak’s Vermonter Line starts every morning from Washington, D.C and follows the eastern seaboard through nearly every major city en route to Windsor, VT, only five miles from Ascutney’s front door.

For those wishing to rent a car during their visit, there’s even a local car rental agency that will provide free pick up and drop off service with each car rental.

With all of Ascutney’s amenities, including multiple on-site restaurants, a complete Fitness Center with indoor and outdoor pools and spa, tennis, racquetball and basketball courts, hiking and biking trails and an on-site Activities Director to help take away all of the guesswork in your adventure planning, you’ll be ready to have fun right out of the gate! Within a short drive from the resort, you can enjoy a whole range of activities and adventures including: horseback trail rides, canoeing and kayaking, golf, hang gliding rides and lessons, hot air balloon rides, scuba diving lessons, guided fly fishing, local swimming holes, covered bridge tours and the 3.7-mile Auto Road that ascends to the top of Mt.
