Isham has farmer's market's in the summer/fall season on Tuesday evenings! Also, they typically offer a variety of evening performances here as well. During the other season's, they make and sell their own maple syrup and grow cut-your-own Christmas Trees.....and might be one of the cutest love stories available on a Netflix featured documentary titled 'My Love' - worth watching the entire series in case you are wondering!

Highly recommend if touring the area on Bike. Definitely worth grabbing a bike and taking yourself on a tour of the Queen City and the Islands. The Bike Ferry is located at the end of Colchester Causeway on the Island Rail Line Trail - you will need to hop the quick ferry ( it is so close distance wise, that it feels like you could almost hop - if only we had that super power! ) in order to skip over to the other side and bike the Islands.

Located about 5 mins away (sometimes less depending on what time you go) - This is our most favorite *hidden gem* to stroll, bird watch, take a hike, trail run ...and if you mountain bike, you will enjoy this spot as well! Has over 20+miles of trails. We recommend parking in the designated lot, checking in and then crossing the street - to the left of the Inn (if facing it from lot) is the entrance. This portion of trails are simply breathtaking, and soothing. Enjoy!! ***IMPORTANT NOTE***: Please leave any furry friends behind, as they do not allow pets. Pedestrians are free, but for biking, snow sports, etc. there is a cost for entry. Worth it!

Sightseeing

Most of the homes and town buildings in our historic village were built in the nineteenth century, with our c.1790 farmhouse as one of a few exceptions. The streetscape is lined with large stately trees, mature shrubs, many well-tended lawns. The variety of architectural styles, including the brick Greek Revival buildings which dominate the core of the village, give stature and distinction to the district. Exceptions to this historic setting are Williston Central School, Dorothy Alling Memorial Library and the Bandstand. These add significantly to the character of the village, bringing vitality and a sense of community.

Williston History: People have called this area home dating back 8,000 years. The Abenaki people lived here prior to the first European settlers who arrived in the 1700s. Higher elevations, such as Five Tree Hill, were used as lookouts to site herds of caribou or deer. Wetlands and ponds, such as Mud Pond and Lake Iroquois, were rich in wildlife and served as hunting grounds. European settlement began in the early 1770s. Present day Williston’s proximity to Burlington International Airport and I-89 make it attractive to businesses. Rich historical and natural resources, a commitment to quality education and recreation opportunities make it a perfect place to visit or call home.
