BRISTOL

Bristol VT Downtown

Bristol is a wonderful town with its own nostalgic character. It is halfway between Middlebury and Burlington - you'll find commuters choose to head both North and South for work, while happy to call Bristol home. Covering 41 square miles, Bristol is surrounded by serene woodlands, delightful mountain scenery and crystal clear streams and rivers: swim at Bartlett Falls, canoe and kayak at Bristol Pond, fish the New Haven River, or hike the many trails surrounding, including up to The Ledges right from downtown Bristol for an incredible bird's eye view of town and much of Addison County beyond. Four-season natural beauty is within easy reach by car, bike, foot or fishing pole.

On the food and beverage circuit, Bristol is home to a lively locally owned bakery (Bristol Cliffs Cafe), a range of restaurants (people come far and wide for the Bobcat Cafe & Brewery, locals can't get enough of Cubbers Pizza, and foodies have long-hailed Mary's Restaurant at the Inn at Baldwin Creek to name just a few options), two celebrated catering groups each with their own storefront (Almost Home Market, and the grassroots Tandem, a performance and event venue), the popular Hatch 31 where you'll find pub fare and some great live local music, a complete grocery store and a great selection at Bristol Beverage. You'll find all necessary amenities (and plenty of extras!) here too, with Kimball Office Services, Recycled Reading of Vermont, Art on Main art & craft gallery, the fun and funky at Emeraldrose Gifts and newly opened Emeraldrose Grows where you'll find resources for organic and sustainable growing. Of course there's a full service pharmacy and post office and Martin's Hardware, the local go-to for building and home (and with all the contractors in the area, it is a necessary resource in this small town!). 

Want to plan a trip to Bristol around a local event? Watch for the annual 4th of July festivities - bringing not only residents of the four towns surrounding, but enthusiasts from all of Addison County and several from Chittenden County, too! With fireworks, live music and food vendors on the 3rd, and an outhouse race (do not miss it!), 5K run, music, vendors and a sizable parade on the 4th, it's no wonder the streets are packed for Independence Day. The Bristol Harvest Festival celebrates the changing of the seasons with live music, farmers produce and product, art, craft and vendors. Pocock Rocks closes Main Street for the annual Street Fair, with food, music and fun - mark your calendars for mid-June. And don't miss the Three Day Stampede in for the Cure, usually in July - one of the largest, if not THE largest single site lawn sales in Vermont, with proceeds going to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation! Visit the Discover Bristol site, for more fantastic local recommendations - there's so much to do in Bristol!

Are you intrigued by old farmhouses? Have you ever thought about living in your very own and becoming part of their living history? How about an 1870's farmhouse that has the ability to house the entire family under one roof with its 5 bedrooms? Located on Rte. 116 South in Bristol, the property is convenient to both the Bristol Village and the Town of Middlebury. The .78 acre lot offers a manageable piece of property while the surrounding open land makes it feel much larger. A covered porch on the front and back of the house make great gathering places for summertime meals or to just sit back relax and enjoy a laid back lifestyle. A large shed/outbuilding is located at the rear of the property and once housed both livestock as well as equipment. It would make a perfect chicken coop or just use it as storage for all your lawn and garden tools. Properties in this price range typically do not stay on the market long so schedule a time today to see where home could be tomorrow!
