The Holmes Creek Covered Bridge • Charlotte, Vermont
We only discovered this bridge accidentally during an autumn drive on Lake Road… Also called the Lakeshore Covered Bridge, it’s just off the shore of Lake Champlain and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Built in 1898, it’s the shortest known covered bridge in Vermont with a total length of 40’—the shortest covered bridge in America is the West Liberty Covered Bridge in Geneva, Ohio, it’s only 18 feet long.
Our goal is to visit every covered bridge in Vermont and the Vermont Covered Bridge Society is a wonderful resource with spectacular photographs! Click here to see one of our Enchanted Covered Bridge Day Tours.
Equally as interesting is The 251 Club of Vermont. If you’re seeking an authentic Vermont experience, you are invited to join over 6,000 members of the 251 Club in exploring the state while visiting its 251 towns and cities. Travel at your own pace, in a season or in a lifetime, by car, on foot, or whatever conveyance suits your style. There are no rules, no records to keep, no requirements. The expectation is that you will be inventive and adventurous in following the road less traveled to Vermont’s little-known corners, as well as its more popular destinations. And, where best to begin… at Pond Mountain Inn.
