How It Works

The smart way to plan your perfect Vermont vacation.

Designed for independent travelers who want to make the most of their time in Vermont, our Green Mountain Insider puts local knowledge at your fingertips.

  • Want to beat the crowds come foliage season?

  • Wondering if you can trust your AllTrails app to plan that big hike?

  • Tired of endless Google searches for the "best" Vermont activities and restaurants?

  • Green Mountain Insider is the best way to take the guesswork out of planning your perfect Vermont vacation...without hiring a guide!

How It Works

  1. Fill out our quick and easy online form: let us know how long you're visiting for, what kind of outdoor (or indoor) activities you enjoy and whether you'd prefer to stay in a tent, a bed & breakfast or a luxury hotel.

  2. Look out for an email alerting you that your bespoke suggested itinerary is ready (typically within 24 hours of submitting the form).

  3. After we receive your payment, your personalized Green Mountain Insider will be delivered straight to your inbox!

  4. Make any recommended advance bookings or reservations, as needed. After that it's up to you to enjoy Vermont at your own pace, comfortable in the knowledge that every hike, camping spot, restaurant or inn was independently recommended by a real person who lives here, not an algorithm.


​​In keeping with our promise to provide recommendations from real people with real local knowledge, at this time Green Mountain Insider is only available to guests traveling to the greater Mad River Valley - Waterbury - Stowe - Montpelier areas.
