Things To Know Before You Come

Food services:
There are no food services or vending machines at the park. Full service restaurants (also with take out) are located in Windsor, Vt. (3 miles west), West Lebanon, N.H. (12 miles north), and Claremont, N.H. (12 miles south). Deli services and sandwiches, are located at convenience store on Rt. 12 A in Plainfield, N.H. (4 miles north).

A drinking fountain and special water bottle filling station, are located in the Visitor Center. Picnic tables are located near the main parking lot and the Visitor Center.

Because of limitations with the historic structures and landscape, certain buildings and areas of the site unfortunately are not wheelchair accessible. These include Aspet, the Ravine Studio, the Picture Gallery, the Formal Gardens and the nature trails.

Pathway surfaces between buildings include grass, brick, mulch, asphalt and gravel. Grades are slight to moderate. There are numerous benches located in the buildings and around the grounds. We regret that there are no wheelchairs available for loan.
