Every morning when I wake up and pour a cup of coffee I look out at this amazing mountain view and it simply takes my breath away. The scenery is forever changing, from the dawning of spring to the colorful foliage of autumn. Today on the blog I wanted to share a round-up of some of my favorite year-round mountain views that we experience here every day. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do friends!
Winter in the Green Mountains
Clear bluebird skies are not that common here in the winter months, however, they’re not rare either and are the best of the best against the white blanket of snow!
In these mountains is the Appalachian Trail. And if you look close enough in the summer months with binoculars you can see the hikers crossing with headlights on. The hikers also stop in town to collect mail, supplies, and to rest at the Green Mountain Hostel, before making their final and challenging journey to Maine’s Mount Katahdin.
Hot Tub Views
Having a hot tub in Vermont is almost a mandatory home necessity. They are great on those cold winter days, allowing you to enjoy the outdoors while still staying warm at home.
When we first moved here to Vermont, the front yard had three Apple trees, several large pine trees, along with a homemade stone fire pit from rocks that were left behind.
Over time the trees in this area became diseased and it was time to rethink the front property that overlooks these beautiful mountains. The fire pit was not that functional either, as the winds in this part of the property caused the fire pit to heavily smoke. So this had to go as well.
2 year’s in the making and it was all worth it! Join me around our backyard fire pit and let me share with you our conversation furniture set, patio, and views from the Green Mountains of Vermont.

Split Rail Fence
This past fall we added this split rail fence, which gave a little dimension to the property as well as depth next to the mountains in the background.

Autumn in Vermont
Autumn in Vermont is known for its magnificent colors, crisp air, fall festivals, pumpkins, antique car shows, brew festivals, music festivals, Oktoberfests, hayrides, and so much more. It’s an amazing time of the year here in Vermont. If you’ve never had a chance to visit, I highly recommend it. Check out Explore Vermont.
It’s our favorite time of the year to enjoy the outdoor front porch and cool evenings dining on the porch. You may enjoy the post, Picturesque Table Setting with Autumn Mountain Views.
Here stands a Maple tree that is not only magnificent shading in the summer, but just look at it in the fall! You may also enjoy our Vermont Fall Foliage Home Tour.
You may find all my fall home decor ideas here. And if you are ever in Vermont, you’ll definitely want to take a drive to the Vermont Country Store, purveyors of the hard-to-find items from the past.

The rainbows are simply amazing here in the summer when it rains. Many times we have seen double rainbows over our home. Everyone in the neighborhood runs out into the streets so excited to share it with each other, taking all the photos we can. This picture was taken by our neighbor with the rainbow over our home.
If you look closely at this picture you can see the double rainbow over the mountains. They are really hard to capture in photography, as they don’t last that long, unfortunately.
Our Year-Round Vermont Mountain Views
These year-round mountain views are what sold us on purchasing this simple red home in the mountains of Vermont. The previous owners had also renovated the entire home and it was so beautifully done, in the way that the deck overlooked the mountains, where the sun was positioned on the house daily, etc… We just love living here.
Sunroom Mountain Views
One of my favorite things is sitting in the sunroom that overlooks the mountains for morning coffee. We love watching the ever-changing weather patterns from this exact spot. I hope you enjoyed your visit with us today here in the mountains of Vermont.

Loved that maple! I have vacationed in VT several times and have always enjoyed it immensely! Would love to go back! Your home has wonderful views. My land borders a river and we have great rainbows, too; I think the storms follow the river!
Thank you so much, Kathy. Isn’t that Maple tree just amazing! Thanks for popping in today! Happy Easter.

Good Morning! I’m very much enjoying your views from Vermont! I’m a Southern girl but my husbands family all live in New England. We have been to Vermont many times, it is a favorite visit for us. I love antiquing in New England! I love Woodstock Vt.!! We have retired in The Blue Ridge mountains in north Georgia. It’s perfect for us ….gorgeous Mountain View’s keep my hubby happy and I’m still in my beloved South! Like you, I am decorating and always enjoy a good treasure hunt. We have serval porches and a pavilion down by the water, so we entertain frequently. Thanks for your inspiration!! I’m very much into Tablescapes, and busy decorating. LOVE the old truck!! We purchased a vintage car recently, and are ON THE HUNT for a truck! Your blog is a DELIGHT to read, as I’m having coffee looking at the mountains here in beautiful Blue Ridge Ga.
Welcome, Lou Ann and thank you so much for your beautiful and thoughtful note. Enjoy your day today in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains!
You are so sweet Lou Ann. Your home sounds amazing, I’ve never been to the Blue Ridge Mountains. I bet they ‘re amazing. Thank you so much for dropping by❤️❤️❤️

Anh your views are so so lovely! Thanks for sharing them with us – I can totally get lost in my computer and feel like I’m actually there! I can see why you were drawn to this home! Love that you have a teacup on the rim of your hot tub! 🙂 Thanks again for sharing all this beauty, and Happy Easter!
PS – LOVE the new Wordpress site – now I can leave comments! 😉
Thanks so much, Barbara, yes I’m glad it’s finally all done!! Thanks for popping in today so much.
I so enjoyed the views this morning. Ella is a beautiful dog. She’s lucky to have such a spot to roam. I’ve always wanted to go treasure hunting there but I have a husband that when he gets time to vacation it’s to the coastal waters in the hot heat which I’,m not a fan of. Your home is lovely. So happy you’ve found the perfect place for you. One day…..
Thank you so much, Lori, I appreciate you stopping by!
Hi Ann. What a beautiful place to live! My husband and I are planning a visit to Vermont in September. Any areas you can suggest would be appreciated. Thanks for sharing the wonderful pictures.
What a beautiful time of the year to visit Vermont. Where in Vermont will you be and what kind of things do you like to do?
I’m new to your site. I loved your home and many of your decorating touches. I’m actually looking for ideas for my Adirondack home. Any suggestions?
Thank you so much and welcome👏🏻👏🏻 Decorate with the things you love and with what makes you happy.. Don’t get caught up in all the trends. Your home should express you😃. I hope that helps❤️❤️
