Abbott’s Glen Vermont Naturist Resort Review:
Vermont is the closest thing we now have to Spain, a state where nudity is legal everywhere except a number of places where excess enthusiasm in the public square forced local ordinances restricting it.
While you will find loads of well-recognized informal places to simply pull over and jump in the river – looks that every river has a road running alongside it – people like to congregate.
One popular area is Abbott’s Glen Resort handily just above the Massachusetts boundary. We used it as a base during a recent stay and found the place fairly fascinating.

The first thing that hit us was the range of surroundings within its 55 acres. One level plain attributes landscaped sweeps, a pond, a wildflower meadow, a garden, an orchard and a four-hole golf course in case bare golfing is on your own bucket list.
One afternoon, cows from a nearby farm came to graze there. Several trails lead into a ravine about as close to virgin development forest as you can nevertheless get in New England and noticeably cooler only a few steps in.
The North River flows through the property with 100 yards or so dammed away for very sluggish tube. Trees hang over the banks on both sides, offering stretches of shade and occasionally some pretty striking cathedral lighting.

Accommodations range from camping to reasonably refined. Balconies are aligned with vistas and a cliff’s-edge glider provides another view to savor.
An outdoor coffee nook and the communal shower share a roof – and a view. Should not work but definitely does. Owners Lindy and Amy are constantly tinkering with this labor of love. They’re also serious Vermont foodies, with the day-to-day breakfast and weekend dinners (both optional) never routine.
Nearby Shelburne Falls, MA and Wilmington, VT are small towns that punch above their weight with live music and creative cuisine. For months when textile weariness is more difficult to repair, worth noting that it’s open year round with hot tub and sauna on the list of conveniences.
No must additionally rehash what’s on their web site:

AG additionally gains from really being a suitable distance to The Ledges, found on a innocent expanse of Harriman Resevoir with a small plage and several stone slabs overlooking pristine water.
It’s clothing- and hosts an incredibly gregarious bunch on summer weekends. Don’t come without your own provisions, but do not be surprised if some friendly people are passing around a tray of whatever have baked.
One could get psyched to bring diving gear and try to find the resevoir’s submerged village, but that impulse will pass.
Elsewhere in VT:
The Cornfield just west of Brattleboro now has some rigamarole for access but is worth the effort if your broad, shallow river behind a chocolate factory appeals to you.
The Punch Bowl near the Mad River in Waitsfield features an opportunity to leap from a rock into a whirlpool that spins you gently into the shallows, a stunt I wouldn’t attempt until I saw a three-year old do it.
Cunningham Cove on popular Lake Willoughby barely survived a legal challenge a few years back but stands as a model for a c/o section coexisting with a textile lake thanks to (pretty short) natural impediments.
