We stayed at the condos.
They rent it out for the summer, so mostly jewish.
Minyanim e.t.c.
They have a guy that gives details where to go on trips...
They sell some kosher food in the office.
2 private pools.
Though the ladies must drive to the Inn area to swim.
It's a nature and skiing area much like New Hampshire. Beutiful. We took a nature walk every day.

Shelburne Museum is very cool and interesting, and only about 15-20 minutes away. You can also take a ferry across the lake (it can take cars) to the NY side and go to Ausuable Chasm or Lake Placid area. Mt. Mansfield (road or tram to top of Vermont's tallest mountain), Stowe (gorgeous hiking and biking), and Ben and Jerry's tour are pretty close as well.

Thanks.  I am looking to get info from people who have been there lately because I have been trying to contact the place for about a week and no one picks up the phone or calls me back. That is why I am wondering.   And I saw only a few posts about the place so I am looking for some details.   again,  thanks a bunch

How are the rooms in the Condominium?  clean?   comfortable?  I would like to go from August 30th to September 4th.  Should I take the condo even though it has no a/c?  any decent attractions there or am I going to sit like a "klutz" in the hotel?

I keep calling the vermontMenucha number and no one picks up or calls back. This has been going on for about a week. Does the place still exist?
