This article is part of a hosted stay in Burke, Vermont.
I am SO EXCITED to be Vermont bound this afternoon. It’s been too long since my last visit, and I can’t wait to get back. Any season is beautiful in Vermont, but the range of colors in fall is spectacular. We will be staying at the Burke Mountain Hotel & Conference Center. You may recognize the name Burke Mountain from the Burke Mountain Academy, whose alumni include many Olympic downhill skiers including 2014 Olympic slalom gold medalist Mikaela Shiffrin!
We have been wanting to visit Burke Mountain for quite some time since they are nestled amongst the Northeast Kingdom Trails, some of the best mountain biking (and trail running!) on the East coast. I’m also excited to check out the newly renovated Burke Mountain Hotel & Conference Center. It features 116 suites that range from studios to three-bedroom units, many of which have beautiful views of Burke Mountain. The boys are excited about the outdoor pool!
While we are up in Vermont, we are planning on doing some serious mountain biking, hiking, and swimming. We will, of course, be doing some leaf peeping too! One of the many things I love about Vermont is its farm to table cuisine, so I’m sure we will be getting our fill of good food as always. We’ll have to stock up on maple syrup too!
On a side note, I started having the boys pack for themselves (with the supervision of course!). With 3 kids, I need all of the help I can get with packing! I found this helpful printable on Pinterest, and hopefully, it might get your kids to help you with packing too! They were quite excited to have their own checklist…
