The Green Mountain Campus is in southern Vermont’s beautiful lakes region, with the Adirondack Mountains to the west and the Green Mountains to the east. The pastoral 155-acre campus situated on the New York-Vermont border features classic red-brick and slate roof buildings, athletic fields, a working farm, hiking and bike trails, and much more. The property sits at the intersection of College Street and Main Street in the heart of Poultney, a quaint New England village of 3,400 residents.
The town of Poultney is bordered by Ira & Middletown Springs to the east, Fair Haven and Castleton to the north, Hampton (NY) to the west, and Wells to the south. Poultney is approximately 80 miles southwest of Vermont’s capital city (Montpelier), 70 miles south of Vermont’s largest city (Burlington) and 65 miles west of the Vermont/New Hampshire border in White River Junction. Poultney is also proximate to Saratoga Springs (50 miles southwest of Poultney) and Albany (70 miles southwest of Poultney) in New York state. In addition, great shopping, skiing destinations (including Vermont’s premier ski resort, Killington Mountain) and college towns are located nearby, including Burlington (VT), Middlebury (VT) and Queensbury (NY).
The closest city to Poultney is Rutland, Vermont, which is the largest town in Vermont after Burlington and South Burlington. The town of Rutland is located approximately 20 miles northeast of Poultney, or a 25-30 minute drive via Route 30 & Route 4. Rutland offers an eclectic mix of shopping, restaurants, bars, cafes as well as cultural and entertainment venues and attractions. The state of Vermont, known as the Green Mountain state, ranks as the healthiest and best-educated state in the country.
Highly Accessible Location
