Discover your Vermont

…from the peace of a front porch-rocker – or from the seat of a mountain bike as you tear up the trails at the Grafton Ponds Outdoor Center! We’re geared up to provide whatever experience you desire, with something to excite everyone.

At the heart of all activities at Grafton Inn is our gem, the Grafton Ponds Outdoor Center. This year-round recreation center offers our guests 2,000 acres of amazing scenery, trails and grounds. As a guest of the Inn, you enjoy complimentary* use of the Grafton Ponds.

In the summer, enjoy mountain biking, running, a bike terrain park, hiking, canoeing, fly-fishing instruction, biathlon and summer kids camps for ages 5 through 16 years. Grafton Ponds is a perfect setting for the annual Vermont Symphony Orchestra concert every July 3.

In the winter, enjoy 15k of tiller-groomed Nordic skiing (with 5k of snowmaking), 10k of snowshoeing, biathlon, and a 600-foot snow tubing hill, along with a myriad of special tours and programs, including the popular Wine & Cheese snowshoe tour.

Equipment rentals, guided tours and lessons are available at the Grafton Ponds in all seasons.

*Trail use is complimentary. Rentals, lessons, excursions, special events have additional costs.
