Host to one of Vermont’s liberal arts colleges, Castleton is “a place where a stranger can feel like family.” The unofficial capital of the Lakes Region of western Vermont, Castleton boasts marinas and restaurants on Lake Bomoseen, the largest body of water entirely within Vermont, and other popular swimming and boating venues such as Lake St. Catherine and Lake Hortonia. Castleton, Vermont is also an excellent nest from which to explore Hubbardton Battlefield, site of Vermont’s only Revolutionary War battle.
