Illusive Minds Starry Sky

Welcome to the Jay Peak Region at the Top of VT

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 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.

Hi Vue Maples

Welcome Hi Vue Maples of Vermont. We produce 100% pure maple products harvested naturally from our maple grove. In 1903 the first plume of steam rose from the Smith family sugar house, high in the hills of Richford, Vermont. It was the beginning of a proud tradition that has spanned for over 100 years and 5 generations of delivering the highest quality Vermont maple syrup. and an ever expanding line of maple products including, Maple Candy, Maple Vinegar and Maple Cream.


I’m Jessica Boone and along with my father, Dale Smith, my husband Matt and our children, Juliette and Ian, I am very proud to carry on the traditions of my great-grandparents and grandparents.

From our table…to yours, thank you for choosing Hi Vue Maples!
