Sweet Success – Vermont Maple Open House Weekend!

Vermont Maple Open House

Vermont is the nation’s leader producer of maple syrup and because of all those sweet maple trees it’s also one of the most beautiful fall foliage displays in the country.  There are many wonderful things to be said about the state of Vermont, but one claim to fame would be that it’s called America’s Maple Syrup Capital and coming this March 28 and 29, maple producers all over the state will open their doors to show the public how it’s done!

The Green Mountain Inn welcomes you to come and experience the true sweetness of Vermont during the Vermont Maple Open House Weekend.  As the days start to warm up, the sugar maples’ sap will begin to flow and the area will come alive with young and old getting ready to sample our state’s sweetest prize.  Plan a fun weekend and enjoy exceptional accommodations while here!
