A literary landmark that is only minutes away from the American poet's burial site.
Don't miss a tour of the Stone House Robert Frost occupied in South Shaftsbury from 1920 to 1929. The poet wrote many works here, including "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening." The house itself dates back to 1769 and was already considered a historic landmark before Frost came to live there.
Exhibits here give insight into Frost's life and works. The surroundings of the home are also wonderful to look at as Robert Frost planted many red pines and apple trees, the majority of which still stand today.
Don't miss a timeless hike through Ripton's hills, which is annotated by some of the poet's best work. Having chosen the road less traveled, you'll soon see why America's most revered wordsmith tapped the Green Mountains for inspiration. Vermont's fall tapestry greets explorers at every turn; with fiery maples and exploding yellow birch that stretch in all directions. Everywhere deciduous flora looks ready to burst in sharp hues you've hardly imagined.
