Welcome to Middlebury, Vermont!

Middlebury is a special place. Whether you’re here for a few days or a lifetime, we think you’ll agree. The town is everything you’d expect in a quaint Vermont village—a white-steepled church, a Main Street lined with unique shops and a pretty town green. Stop and admire Otter Creek as it tumbles over a twenty-foot waterfall in the center of town.

Home to world-renowned Middlebury College, there’s a thriving arts scene with museums and art galleries as well as lectures, theater, music and dance performances nearly every night. With the Green and Adirondack Mountains as backdrops, recreational opportunities are nearly limitless with hiking, biking, golfing, skiing, fishing and boating on nearby lakes and streams. 

Just want to kick back and enjoy great food and beverage? Middlebury has that too with both casual and fine dining, as well as several tasting rooms where you can sample many of the fine beers, spirits and ciders that are locally produced. 

Come for a visit…you won’t be disappointed. And if you’re already part of our community? Discover something new about the special place we call home.
