Why do we love spring in the Green Mountains at Sterling Ridge Log Cabins?
For lots of reasons! Spring in the Green Mountain state of Vermont means budding trees and flowers, birds returning, festivals, hiking, fishing, maple sugar season and a lot more!
A sure sign of spring is all the budding trees and flowers and the mountains sides turning green with color again. After all, the green is how the Green Mountain state got its name: Vermont. The French explorer Samuel de Champlain called the Green Mountains of Vermont “Verd Mont” (green mountain.) At Sterling Ridge Log Cabins, there are meadows and gardens excited for the warm weather of spring to ease the blossoms into full bloom. Come experience the beauty of the Green Mountains in the spring, right from your very own cabin.
The Vermont Maple Festival in St. Albans, Vermont is a tradition in the Green Mountains for over 50 years! The Maple Fest takes place annual in April. Events include a carnival, parade, 8.5-mile run, live entertainment and LOTS of Vermont maple food and beverages.
