Time to Plan Fall Foliage Travel

Our parking lot, September 27, 2008

With all the rain and cool temps, it seems like we haven't started summer yet so fall has to be far off. And, while we have about two months before the fall season rolls in, planning for it should be started.

Looking at our reservation book, I can see the early birds have been calling steadily already. We are far from full in late September and early October but we are close enough now that you should make lodging reservations very soon for the last week in September and first two weeks of October (maybe a week later in southern Vermont). Fall foliage is our busiest time of year and if you want to find a place to stay, especially on weekends, you should decide now.

That's not true just for us - every inn and motel is filling in their most popular rooms. You can wait until the last minute if you must, but you will get either the smallest or the most expensive rooms as options. And I certainly would not drive or fly here without having your lodging reservations lined up and confirmed. Every year we get some people looking for a room after they have arrived in the area and they often end up spending a lot of their valuable time looking for a room.

Last year's fall foliage colors were spectacular and the season was one of the best in the most people's memories. It was a year like this year with a very rainy June and July. Not so great for people but trees loved it. They had a low stress summer and celebrated with a fireworks display of color. I swear some of the trees looked fake they were so bright and colorful, especially the reds. Some of our maples had orange leaves that looked like they had been painted on with neon paint. I can't wait to see what our beautiful Vermont hillsides will look like this foliage season.
