I'm glad you liked it and feel you can live up there. As for MOMs clubs, there isn't even one (not by the name you're referring to) in Burlington. There may be other moms who would like to start a playgroup, however. Good luck with this tough decision!

Default Hi

Actually , I am aware of one in Burlington, it is through out the county- I found it posted on Craig's List. Didn't know if someone had started one for Orleans County as well. Could always start one myself for all to use....

Monet1902, please read all of the replies on this thread again very carefully before you make a decision. Living in the NEK is much different than vacationing there. If you move up there you will be spending a lot of time driving anyway to do everyday errands, don't add a daily commute to that as well. I grew up on a farm right near Guildhall, and later for a while I worked near Canaan. I moved away to Mass for a while before I decided to move back. I wish you the best of luck!!!

People in rural Vermont are not overly social. They tend to stick to themselves, which is why I'm not surprised you are not finding "moms" groups. It's just not something rural Vermonters do. Most folks have a large network of family and friends to rely on - thats the way it works in small towns up here.
I agree with Asta, be prepared for some major culture shock if you decide on this move. If it works out for you, it'll be great. I love the Kingdom, I could just never live there!

THAT is a great way to put it!! Not much else to add, sums it up in a nutshell!!

Default I'll join in...

....with a similar response.

Newport/Derby is on the western edge of the NE Kingdom; make sure that this is where you definately want to settle. The area is quite remote, with the largest towns being Newport and St. Johnsbury, both on the edge of the region. And keep in mind that Burlingon is 2 hrs away, with no interstate linking Newport with Burlington. The scenery is admittedly gorgeous, but you may feel isolated, especially coming from an urban state like MA. You might find that living in Burlington would be more comfortable, but perhaps you can make the adjustment.

Good luck.
