Vermont is an American state in the region of New England. The state is often called “the green mountain state” because of the marvelous and vast green mountains. Even its name in French has the same meaning as this territory was claimed by France in the early colonial period. Interesting fact about Vermont is that it is the only state in the New England region that has no reach to the Atlantic Ocean. Vermont is known for its production of maple syrup and the warm hospitality that attracts plenty of visitors to enjoy cheap holidays and memorable experience.

The house of the American poet Robert Frost built in the mid-18th century is exquisite example of the architecture in the Colonial age combining stone and timber. The house has been preserved in its original way and it welcomes visitors from all parts of the country.
