"Fall in love with Thornton Vermont. I did." ~ author, polymath, and smartypants, John Dolan
Nestled in a lush Vermont valley, you'll find the fictional village of Thornton, inspired by the real village of Middlebury. Guarded by the Green Mountains to the East, gazing west across Lake Champlain to the Adirondack peaks, Thornton straddles the north-flowing Thorn River.
Watch the seasons flow from the first sap running in the trees, through the bloom of spring and soft heat of summer, into the sparkling winters with characters who step out of the pages and into your heart.
Book a night at the quietly elegant Damselfly Inn. Stroll down Main Street, stop for a treat at Sweet Pease Café and Patisserie. Plan a wedding for the fall foliage season. Take a maple syrup tour... You might meet someone with a love story to tell...
