Vermont Route 103 seems to traverse along the ‘top of the world’ as it rises west out of the Okemo State Forest across a high ridge overlooking the group of small villages in the surrounding green hills that make up the town of Mount Holly, Vermont. Nestled between the state forest on the east and the Green Mountain National Forest on the west, the villages of Mount Holly, Vermont are hidden gems amidst the unfolding landscape that are not to be overlooked or underestimated.
Quaint and Beautiful
The most notable, the village of Belmont, is as quaint and beautiful a Vermont village you’re likely ever to see! Located along the shores of Star Lake, the village center revolves around its general store, a beautifully restored community center & library, and not one, but two museums. Stonewalls climb out of town past galleries, farms and fields, along dirt roads up and over gentle hills offering exquisite views of the valleys and mountains in the distance any time of year.
Mount Holly, Vermont enjoys an unassuming rural simplicity, unsurpassed natural beauty and vibrant, friendly community that make for an ideal destination for anyone looking to getaway for a while. Star Lake and Lake Ninevah to the north offer year-round fishing and water sport activities, and anyone looking to explore the green mountains won’t want to miss a visit to the spectacular White Rocks National Recreation Area, or explore the miles of V.A.S.T Snowmobiling Trails in the winter.
Mount Holly takes special pride in its annual community events: the Fourth of July Celebration; Artfest, held the 1st weekend in August (every other year) on the Village Green; Cider Days over Columbus Weekend; and monthly dinners at Odd Fellows Hall in Belmont from April through October.
