Friendly, helpful people. Relatively close (by VT standards) to highways and larger towns. Nice rec fields and twin greens. Cute country store, cafe, and a couple other small businesses. Country living at its finest!

Lovely rural town. Out of the way, a few small businesses, mostly residential. Relatively close driving distance to larger town centers in several directions.
You rarely ever hear about something dangerous happening in this area.
