No matter how you plan to spend your vacation, a getaway to Peru, VT won't disappoint! Lucky travelers can enjoy a relaxing stay in one of our quaint New England vacation rentals nestled in this wooded town. With recreation and events available to guests year-round, Peru boasts an ideal location for any group looking for a memorable getaway.
Surrounded by vast natural majesty, Peru captures the attention of both outdoor adventurers and travelers seeking to enjoy the historic charm of a classic New England village. The Green Mountains run along the western part of town, and in the north are Styles and Peru Peaks. To the south of Peru, vacationers will enjoy the view and adventures to be had at Bromley Mountain. A short drive east, you will find the quaint town of Windham, and to the west is the idyllic town of Dorset.
If you're planning a visit at the end of the summertime, why not stay in Peru for one of Vermont's top ten events? Hundreds of out-of-towners and locals alike converge for the Peru Town Fair, one of the nicest county fairs in New England. The Fair's fun history starts in 1978, where it was originally called "End of the World Tag Sale." As the Fair evolved and grew in popularity, along came its new name and a fun, family-friendly tradition!
Visitors and vendors of the Peru Town Fair will want to book a vacation home ahead of time - a private New England home rental is the best way to rest your weary feet after a day enjoying music, family entertainment, art and antique exhibitions, a pig roast, cloggers, Vermont artisan demos, and so much more.
Peru is home to Hapgood Pond Recreation Area, the site of a scenic pond with plenty of swimming and fishing opportunities. The pond itself spans across eight acres of the Green Mountain National Forest, the location of three nationally designated trails (the Long Trail, Robert Frost National Recreation Trail, and Appalachian Trail). Vacationers staying in Peru can pack a picnic lunch and spend the day enjoying the many activities available here.
Day use picnic shelters are available on a first come, first serve basis. Once you've secured your picnic shelter, your group can enjoy a day of fishing, hiking, kayaking, swimming, and canoeing. The same trails used for hiking in summer can be used for snowshoeing around the pond in the winter!
Keep cozy in your New England retreat with skiing less than three miles away at Bromley Mountain Ski Resort! The resort has downhill skiing for the entire family, as well as lessons for all ages. There are 47 trails, eight lifts, and 178 skiable acres at this nearby attraction.
In the summer, Bromley Mountain Ski Resort runs three different parks, providing year-round entertainment. Mountain Adventure Park is stocked with an Alpine Slide, climbing wall, mini-golf, space bikes, a giant water slide, zip lining, and much more. Aerial Adventure Park provides five high-altitude courses, with 65 elements to test your agility and courage. Sun Mountain Flyer, Bromley's third park, boasts New England's longest zip line, ZipRider, and a special harness allows four seated people to zip line together!
Whether you love the romance of the leaves changing in the fall or the rush of adrenaline with fresh powder under your skis in the winter, Peru is the perfect city for your escape, with a wonderful selection of private vacation rentals for relaxation and comfort.
