Stamford VT
Vermont State Route 100 begins its northward path here and bisects the state from its bottom at the Massachusetts border to its top just a bit short of the Canadian border. Route 100 is a continuation of Massachusetts Route 8 which runs north from the town of North Adams. This two lane road meanders a little over 200 miles through some of the most beautiful and peaceful countryside in the world. It is one of the longest and most scenic drives you will ever see. I hope you have the opportunity to see it all.

0.3
Sully's Driving Range
West side. If you have been traveling for a while, here's a good place to stretch and hit some golf balls. Sully's field is sometimes home to a flock of Canada geese. The photo is of a small barn with American flag located across the street. You will see a large number of America flags along Route 100. You could create a travel game by counting the number of flags you see.
0.8
1.3
Stone Lions
The lions are in the front yard of a beautiful home and farm on the west side. The village of Stamford is home to three churches, two of them good examples of classic New England church architecture. You will see as many churches as American flags along Route 100!
7.8
12.6
Heartwellville, Vermont
A small cluster of homes and a wonderful 1876 church.
8.1
13.0
VT State Route 8
Route 8 continues straight north while Route 100 begins to turn southeast. Route 8 is a scenic drive with some nice views.
9.4
15.1
River on south side
You will begin to see the Deerfield River, Vermont on the south side of the road, running parallel to the road. Such rock and boulder-filled waterways will become common sights on your Route 100 journey.
10.9
17.5
Pull off
On the south side of the road is a pull-off where you can get out and see the river. If you brought your fishing rod, give it a try (but don't forget to get your VT fishing license - available at many stores and shops). And it's OK to do some hot weather wading too but stay away in the spring - these rivers run high and fast, and are quite dangerous.
12.8
20.6
Readsboro, Vermont
General store and gas. Route 100 begins to climb a long hill through a forest and then opens to roadside farms and marshes before heading back down into the next valley.
17.3
27.8
Whitingtham, Vermont
There's a nice lake to the north just as you pass the Whitingham town line. The town is not much to look at but the surrounding countryside is very picturesque.
18.2
29.3
Brigham Young Birthplace
The famous leader of the Mormons was born here. There is a marker on the road noting that he was born on Stimpson Hill Road but our side trip up that road did not reveal the location. Ask one of the locals if you are interested in finding it.
18.6
29.9
Brigham Young Monument, Vermont
Turn south on Sadawga Lake Road. There is a sign on the right pointing the direction to the monument.
20.1
32.3
Sugar house
On the south side of the road is a sugar house where maple sap is brought in the early Spring and boiled down to maple syrup. If you drive by at that time of year and see great clouds of white smoke, don't stop to call the fire dept! It's just steam from the evaporators. Sugar houses have the large and distinctive cupolas on top to release the steam.
21.6
34.8
Sap lines
You may see plastic pipes running from tree to tree alongside the road. These pipes are the modern method of collecting sap and have replaced the galvanized buckets at commercial maple syrup operations (but some small operators and hobbyists still use buckets). These pipes lead to the stainless steel or plastic tanks you may see. The tanks are picked up by truck and taken to the sugar house. It's a labor intensive business but a strong tradition in Vermont.
21.9
35.2
Jacksonville General Store
Route 100 takes a 90 degree turn to the north here and begins a climb out of the valley. Marillas Antiques on the south side is a pretty good store. It has a small deck out back overlooking a stream with step-down water falls where you can think about whether or not to purchase that special item you just saw inside. (Route 112 and 8A go right and head south to Massachusetts.)
23.4
37.7
Sprague and Sons (and grandsons, and great grandsons, etc)
Six generations of Spragues have been farming this area and running sugaring operations. That's not an uncommon number in Vermont.
27.5
44.3
Route 9 Intersection
The Vermont Liquor Outlet occupies what was once a huge sugarhouse with massive stone fireplace for visitors. It is a classic post and beam construction but unfortunately no longer is used for its original purpose. Averill Stand, a 200 year old inn, is on the opposite side of the intersection. Organic farm produce is big business in Vermont and you can find such goods at Elain's Market about 100 yards down Route 9 from the intersection. On Route 100 just past the intersection is an Antique and Flea Market open weekends from mid-May to mid Oct.
27.9
44.9
White Horse Inn
On the east side just as you start down a hill. A nice looking facility, AAA rated, and a good vista from its hilltop location.
28.1
45.2
Wilmington, Vermont
You are on the outskirts of Wilmington, Vermont. Routes 100 and 9 are running together here. A tenth of a mile farther, the Viking Motel is on the east side of the road. There are plenty of restaurants, gas stations, and other conveniences in the area.
28.7
46.2
Stop Light in Wilmington, Vermont
There probably aren't two dozen stop lights along Route 100 in the entire state but this town's narrow streets can get congested with summer and fall tourists and winter skiers so a light was a necessity. Route 9 goes straight east and Route 100 turns north. If you go straight on Route 9 for a tenth of a mile, you will see the Chamber of Commerce office on the right. It is an excellent source for travel information. Also, there are several very fine inns and restaurants, as well as quaint shops, in the same area. The best thing to do in this town is to find a place to park and simply walk up and down the street - it's a small town and easily covered on foot.
31.7
51.0
Taddingers (on the west side of the road)
This is a very well known General Store and Fly Fishing Shop. It's worth a stop even if you dropped all your money at shops back in Wilmington.
34.5
55.5
West Dover, Vermont
It won't take you long to see this is a ski town. There are lots of inns, restaurants, and ski shops of course. This area is very developed and therefore not the nicest looking part of your journey.

Note the huge logs used to make this building.
37.3

50.0
80.5
Stone spaceship
Speaking of the space shuttle, here's how it would look if it were designed in Vermont. This home is on the west side as you leave Wardsboro and just a few feet from the road but comes up quickly so keep an eye out for it. The drive north from Wardsboro is through a forest valley with a large rock stream alongside for much of the way.
52.4
84.3
One lane bridge
Tip: pull all the way up to the line or the light won't change for you.
52.6
84.6
Route 30
Route 100 and Route 30 run together here.
55.5
89.3
D & K Garden Center
On the west side of the road This is definitely worth a stop. Not only a wonderful garden center but also a fascinating butterfly 'heaven,' bird aviary, petting zoo, and llamas. Don't miss this gem of a spot - you'll enjoy it.
55.9
90.0
Jamaica, Vermont - Three Mountain Inn
Well known, very good quality inn in the town of Jamaica, Vermont. This would be a good inn and a good town to spend a couple of nights. The town has a rural Vermont feel with a little Bohemian culture mixed in. Nice place, nice people. Spend some time just kicking around here and you'll find yourself relaxing.
56.0
90.1
Old Corkers
Old Corkers, on the east side of the road, is an interesting antique store with rustic furniture. It is next to the Jamaica Country Market, and across the street from the Jamaica Coffee House which is a good place to hang out and chat with the locals.

63.4
102.0
Jamaica Cottage Shop
Turn onto Winhall Station Road. Builders of fine quality garden sheds, playhouses, wood bins, and even whimsical outhouses. It's worth a short stop to poke around, watch the free ranging chickens, and see sheds that are far better than the cheap stuff you find at home center parking lots. If you go to their web site, you can sign up for their newsletter, 'The Funky Chicken.'
63.4
102.0
Camping area
At Winhall Station Road - go one mile up the road to the east.

Frog's Leap Inn
Beautiful white colonial house on the west side about 200 yards back from the road. Well regarded facility in a very nice area.
73.1
117.6
Weston, Vermont
One of Vermont's most popular villages. Home to the Vermont Country Store - the one with the black and white catalog of stuff you thought wasn't made anymore. There are several other quaint shops and a few inns here. The local theater group is well known for presenting excellent quality plays. The web site is very modest and does not give you a good idea of how nice this village is. But it does have a calendar of events and a listing of local inns.
76.8
123.6
Route 155 intersection
Turn north (east) to stay on Route 100.
78.6
126.5

86.5
139.2
Lakes
You are passing Rescue Lake, Vermont on the right. It has a number of houses on the shoreline, a fairly unusual occurrence is this state which values natural surroundings. Slow down a little and watch for For Sale signs. Perhaps you will find that waterfront cottage you've always dreamed of.
89.0
143.2
Tyson, Vermont
Echo Lake, Vermont and Amherst Lake, Vermont are on the right, just north of Tyson, Vermont. The river you have been seeing for a while is the Black River and it has good possibilities for Brook and Brown trout.

Echo Lake Inn & Inn at Waters Edge
Echo Lake Inn, a very old and classic Victorian built for summer visitors more than 100 years ago, is on the west side (see photo), and the Inn at Waters Edge is on the east side. Both are well known, excellent quality resorts. Also, there is a very nice lake front state park nearby. You can find it by turning east, going past the Inn at Waters Edge, continuing a few minutes and then turning left onto Scout Camp Road. Follow it a couple of minutes to the Plymouth State Park on the left. There are picnic tables, boats and canoes, a beach, etc. A day pass is $2.50 per person, a great bargain.
90.0
144.8
One Lonely Picnic Table
On the east side. There must have been a wide spot in the road and one more picnic table left in the budget that year, so here you go: a nice place to stop and enjoy a sandwich.

During busy periods, you need a reservation. Call them at (802) 422-3886.
106.6
171.5
Route 100 takes a right, Route 4 continues straight
Watch for the right turn that Route 100 takes just beyond Bill's Country Store, the red barn building on the right. It can be hard to spot especially at night but I hope you are driving during daylight so you can see how pretty the next stretch of Route 100 is. Route 4 continues straight and goes past Pico ski area to Rutland. There is very little to see in Rutland so you can skip that side trip. There is an alpine slide in operation at Pico (pronounced 'pea-ko') during the warm weather. It's a lot of fun and just a few miles down Route 4 on the left.
107.1

118.1
190.1
Peavine, Vermont Recreational Area
If you desire a detour, go straight on National Forest Road 330. This is a dirt road that is directly ahead where Route 100 takes a sharp right turn. There is a parking area a few minutes down the road. That is the White River to your right. Try your luck fishing under the Route 100 bridge.
118.4
190.5
Antique Store and Ted Green Ford
Route 100 makes a left turn here. It's interesting to see a car dealership this far out in the country. Ted started selling Fords about 90 years ago, the same time Henry was getting his fledgling company going. There is a very nice antique store across the street in an old red colonial house.

On the east side is the Sweet Onion, a vegetarian and vegan B&B.
131.0
210.8
Hancock Overlook
On the east side is a small parking lot and information board about the area. You can look a long way up and down the valley. It's not a spectacular view, except during fall foliage, but it's a beautiful and bucolic setting where it's enjoyable to stop for a few minutes, smell the fresh air, and relax.
131.8
212.1
Granville, Vermont Town Line

133.4
214.7
Town Hall
On the west. Another magnificent symbol of what the folks here a century ago were able to build and pay for, even though they had to work very hard to get by in a challenging environment. Striking architecture with beautiful symmetry yet bold proportion.

137.3
221.0
Moss Glen Falls, Vermont

Picnic area on left

144.8
233.0
Warren, Vermont
Watch for the right turn that will take you through the village of Warren which is worth the slight detour. Warren, Vermont has a small covered bridge and several quality shops such as Warren Pottery, Warren Country Store, Bradley House, and Parade Gallery. Try to park in front of the Warren Store on the left (see the photo) if you can. The Pitcher Inn across the street is a Relais & Chateaux facility that offers world class lodging and restaurant. You may see a celebrity or two hanging out here.
144.9
233.2
Lincoln Gap Road
On the left and it's easy to miss. Closed during the winter but it's a nice drive in summer and fall. The Long Trail, which runs the length of Vermont, crosses this road at the mountain ridge. There are small parking areas on both sides of the road right where the trail crosses. If you're in a hiking mood, you could get out and walk the trail for a while. Very pretty area especially in fall.

The bypass through Warren comes back out on Route 100 here.

On the left. One of the many very good quality inns in the area.
150.7
242.5
Route 17 Intersection
A 'Y' intersection where Route 17 goes west and Route 100 bears east. Route 17 is a beautiful drive up a winding road over the main ridge of the Green Mountains. Mad River Glen Ski area is a few miles up this road. This is a great detour that will be well worth the 45 minutes or so that it takes to drive to the top and then retrace your steps back to Route 100.

244.0
Bridge Street
On the right. There is a very nice 170 year old covered bridge about 150 feet down the road on the right.
