Natural Feature
“ROUND MOUNTAIN Located on the lands of Lilac Ridge Farm in West Brattleboro, the 1.2 mile trail begins by crossing pastoral farm fields, then enters the forest and climbs steeply to the summit, where two clearings provide views east and south. This trail starts easy but is more difficult at the end.

Park
“Our town park has lots to do: playground, swimming in summer, ice skating, and a $5 rope tow ski lift! If you want to wind up one of the locals over a beverage, ask about 20-year skatepark odyssey. ”

Laundry
“Just a laundromat (not a dry cleaners) located down the Avenue from our building, about 4/10 of a mile, at 1020 Western Ave. Hours of operation are apparently 7am to 9pm. Next door, there's a Seven Eleven convenience store and very good West Brattleboro Pizza. Nearest decent dry cleaners appear to be 25 minutes drive (either to Targett Dry Cleaners in Keene, NH or to Kristins Dry Cleaning in Greenfield, MA).”
