Resort in the Green Mountains the perfect site for your great Vermont vacation

Families love Vermont vacations, and it’s easy to see why: There is so much to do and see! Let The Pointe at Castle Hill Resort and Spa be your headquarters for your next family getaway. You can spend your days kayaking, canoeing, fishing, playing golf and zip lining in the warmer months. In the winter, go cross-country or downhill skiing, ice skating, snowboarding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing — even horseback riding and dogsledding! There are country stores, sugarhouses, family farms and cheese factories to explore. And, of course, there is spectacular leaf-peeping in the fall. Back at the resort, you’ll love your spacious suite, with a king or two queen beds and bunk beds so everyone has plenty of room. Ask about the resort’s hiking and history packages.
