Illusive Minds Starry Sky

Welcome to the Jay Peak Region at the Top of VT‘s Northeast Kingdom

If it is covered bridges, spotted cows and farmers’ markets you seek…look elsewhere. This is the Top of VT.

It’s not that you won’t find such things up here. It’s just that they’re so…tame. The Top of VT is a bit unruly. An area of the Northeast Kingdom (NEKed) in the Green Mountains that resists being defined by postcard images. Where people  find a place where the clamor and confusion of everyday life is replaced by preciousness stillness and views of boundless expanse; where they discover a community shaped as much by weather and wilderness, as the quirky culture that comes with living and working along an International border.

So yeah, we’ve got bridges. They just moan with a bit more history. And the spots on our cows are more lopsided than most. And as to our Farmers’ Markets, well, you have to see them to believe them.

This is such a great time of year for Weddings in Vermont. Beautiful Covered Bridges, farm fields with Cows to gaze at, all while taking in the Fall Foilage like no where else and don’t forget the local farmers markets.

Come on in and see what’s waiting for you in the Jay Peak Region at the Top of VT.
