The Land

Blueberries under their netting, ready to be picked!

During the spring, summer and fall, enjoy our many acres of landscaped gardens, lawn and fields. A delicious crop of blueberries awaits you during late July and early August. Neighboring farmstands and farmers’ markets provide locally grown corn and tomatoes—as well as countless other fruit and vegetables, locally made cheeses, chickens, and more!

North Star House’s contiguous 700 acres include a network of over 9 miles of trails for casual strolls, crosscountry skiing, serious hikes, and mountain biking—both single and double track. We offer free access to the public for hiking, biking, horseback riding, and skiing (no motorized vehicles permitted). View trail map.

Connecting trails to the Cornish Town Forest are available for seriously technical biking, as well as hiking access to more great views of Mount Ascutney and the Vermont countryside.

 

 

 

 

For a daytime (or nighttime!) getaway, check out our restored sugar house with its wood stove and rustic collection of old farming and sugaring tools.
