Downtown Lyndonville, VT, Northeast Kingdom Vermont


Article and photo by Eric H., lifelong New England native

Downtown Lyndonville, located in the largely unspoiled Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, looks like something out of the 1940s. With a splendid village green, old brick buildings and traditional downtown businesses like a local pharmacy, book store and coffee shop, Lyndonville has certainly not become gentrified or precious like some other Vermont towns that have sold out to transplants with agendas. Lyndonville does have its rough edges, but more importantly, this small town never pretends to be something it isn't.  You could picture Andy Griffith walking down the street to Floyd's Barber Shop here, although, yes, the southern drawls would have to be replaced by New England accents.  The bottom line is that if you like towns that haven't changed much over the years -- and have not becomed depressed -- then Lyndonville is certainly worth a visit.  The location is also ideal, near Burke Mountain for skiing and Lake Willoughby for summer recreational opportunities -- not to mention incredible fall foliage during October.  The famous Bailey's and Burke Country Store, in East Burke, is also located minutes from Lyndonville!
