Weston, Vermont


Weston Vermont is a town located in Windsor County, in the "Southern Vermont" region of the state. A hidden gem among the Green Mountains of Vermont, Weston is a town for all seasons, interests and ages, and a relaxing, rewarding step back in time.

Centered around a village green complete with bandstand, Weston is one of Vermont's most picturesque villages. The Inn at Weston offers Romantic Getaways, Gourmet Dining, and a Glorious Site for Vermont Weddings, Honeymoons and Corporate Retreats.

During the warmer months visitors come from far and wide to visit the nationally renowned Vermont Country Store, the Weston Priory (a small Benedictine Monastery known world-wide for the singing voices of the Monks who live there), and the Weston Playhouse.

Weston is also very popular during the winter months because it is conveniently located within minutes of four major downhill ski areas (Bromley Mountain, Stratton Mountain, Magic Mountain, and Okemo Mountain), several cross-country ski touring centers, and snowmobile trails are abundant in the area.
