The Taylor Farm makes cheese using milk from their dairy herd. They specialize in Gouda cheeses. The shop is open to sell their award winning cheeses along with a few other Vermont made goods. We did the sleigh ride on our most recent visit. The ride lasts about an hour including a stop in the woods near a lean to where you are served hot cider and marshmallows to roast on the camp fire. You are allowed to bring your own 'spirits' to drink on the ride.
Magic Mountain is where the locals go. Those in the know will ski here on the weekends when Bromley and Stratton areas are crowded. A weekend adult lift ticket is Mid-week skiing here is $56. A Midweek lift ticket drops to a reasonable $39.
Check their web site below for more info.
Magic is especially great to get to when Mother Nature dumps 6 or more inches of white stuff on the mountain. It has the most challenging slopes in the area and it's especially nice when the snow flies.

We usually eat here during our annual ski weekend in February. It is located in an old barn filled with old tools and exposed wooden beams. It is very dark inside and it may take a while to get used to the dim light. They do not accept reservations. On our most recent visit (Feb '12) our party of eight was told there would be an hour and 15 minute wait. We all went to the bar and ordered drinks and just as the last person was served we were told our table was ready. They appeared to be short staffed because although there were empty tables the service was very slow. Most of our party enjoyed our entrees.
The atmosphere is outstanding.
Favorite Dish: I usually go with one of the items listed on the special menu. This past visit I got the London Broil which was very tender and cooked just the way I ordered it(medium rare).
They do not really push this place as a restaurant to tourists. You need to walk past the check in desk and through the lobby and past the bar to get to the dining room. Patrons are mainly folks staying here with a few local walk-ins. Large menu with many entries some with Swiss/German accent.
We are sure to stop in here on our (almost) annual trip to ski in the area. We have only had 'bar' type food, pizza, cheesesteaks, burgers, etc. One of these trips we'll have to get into the dinner menu. Service is great.
Favorite Dish: They serve the Vermont brewed Longtrail.
The bakery is located in a barn like structure right on the highway. I can't believe that I never saw this place in all the years that we have visited the area. Good selection of baked items
What to buy: Fresh baked pies and other baked goods. They also have a large selection of frozen items to bake at home. Other than dessert items, they have frozen quiches, Shepard's Pie, Pot Pies and dinner items.
They serve Green Mountain coffee in the shop to enjoy with your pastry.
