Vermont is rife with pretty villages, but Newfane is near the top of everyone's list. All the postcard-perfect sights you'd expect in a Vermont town are here: tall old trees, white high-steepled churches, adorable inns and gracious old houses. In spring Newfane is busy making maple sugar; in summer, the town buzzes around its flea market; fall lures leaf peepers; and winter brings couples seeking cozy rooms in warm hideaways.
A short stroll exposes Newfane's core: you'll see the stately Congregational Church (1839), the Windham County Courthouse (1825), built in Greek Revival style, and a few antique shops.
Newfane is on VT 30, just 12 miles northwest of Brattleboro and 19 miles northeast of Wilmington.
