Even without the floating bridge, this little area of town is simply adorable. When you happen upon this town it’s almost as if the outside world has stopped. You can nearly see yourself back in the 1800’s with old style homes, peaceful views and friendly people. We are always impressed when we come upon a town like this. It’s simply breath taking.


During the winter season the floating bridge appears to be closed off, as we recently took a little trip that way during our weekend road trip. It was almost sad to see how dead the little town is during the winter season, but have no worries, soon the warm sunshine will bring the locals and tourists to stay here at the Inn or Bed & Breakfasts located near Brookfield, VT’s floating bridge.
