Hi all, my wife and I want to come to VT this week to solidify our decision to move to VT. We plan on visiting many of the Nursing homes and Clinics and applying for RN and CNA positions. We'd also like to see Montpelier and Burlington, as we plan to live somewhere between the two.

So could anyone suggest any good places to stay for a few days that is very cheap? I know this is the most expensive time of the year to visit VT, but we're hoping for something very basic.

Also, any suggestions of places we should see while we're there? My wife loves ice cream, so I feel it's a must to go visit Ben & Jerry's. We'd love to do some outdoor activity - hiking and canoeing would be nice. We're open to any other places or activities you might recommend. Thanks in advance!

How cheap are you looking for? Maybe check out couchsurfing.com not for everybody, but the price is right. Or check if there is a hostel in the area.

Air b&b might be another option.
If you want a hotel/motel..there is a Motel 6 in Colchester. The Anchorage on Dorset Street in South Burlington is on the cheaper side as well. Tibet Inn on Shelburne Road as well.
If your wife likes ice cream and you end up in the Bristol area.....

A hostel would probably be your cheapest option. and before you dismiss the posibility read the reviews of this particular one.

If you make a vacation of it, try Hostel Tevere in Warren, lots of hiking and canoeing here also. It's not your typical hostel. very clean, and hip. It's about 30 minutes south on Route 100 from Ben and Jerry's. Would probably be like 30$/person. They have very good breakfast also.

If you're looking at nursing homes, stay away from Starr Farm and Birchwood.

As far as lodging, Motel 6 in Colchester is cheap and reasonably priced. Grand Isle State Park has cabins.
