Fodor's Review

When Vermont hero Ethan Allen retired from his revolutionary activities, he purchased 350 acres along the Winooski River and built this modest cabin in 1787. The original structure is a real slice of 18th-century life, including such frontier hallmarks as saw-cut boards and an open hearth for cooking. A kitchen garden resembles the one the Allens would have had. There's also a visitor center and miles of biking and hiking trails. In warmer months, climb Ethan Allen Tower

at the west end of the property for stupendous views of Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains. Don't forget mosquito repellent.
