Vermont Summer Outdoor Adventure Lodging Packages

Horse Drawn Sleigh Rides
An unforgettable winter ride through the scenic Vermont countryside. Snuggle up under warm blankets and glide through new-fallen snow. Our massive draft horses will jingle their bells all the way to a cozy campfire surrounded by mountain views. Once you're there, they'll treat you to steaming hot chocolate and all the fixin's for marshmallow s'mores.  After visiting and warming up awhile, you'll return to Mountain View Ranch as darkness descends on the majestic landscape.
