Intro: My four children and I have lived in The North East Kingdom for about 8 years, and have run the Serenityspa.us for the past four. My first camping experience was last summer on a bike tour of the North Rim in Arizona. Loved it!

Wow... we have stories here. The spa is located in a farmhouse built in 1838, the second house on Darling Hill. The first is directly next door. The field has been used for pasturing cows for the past 200 years. Darling Hill is quintessential Vermont- at its roots-, and the energy is always compared and considered on par with Sedona AZ. On Darling Hill Ridge there are miles and miles of mountain biking trails, known for the flowing designs by Knight Ide. Knight also recently finished designing Victory Hill and East Haven which now connect to Kingdom Trails. Kingdom Trails extends onto Burke Mountain, which offers lift access and earn your turn access to extensive downhill mountain biking. And, the famous Burke Mountain Academy, hidden on the mountain. This high school and the mountain are where real ski racers are born. Vail is the flash. Burke Mountain is the incubator. You might find yourself riding with someone who was in the Olympics. Many ski racers work out on mountain bikes and go on to have successful pro-mountain, road, & cross careers. This is truly the outdoors at its best.
A new mountain bike system just opened in East Haven. The trail head is at the East Haven Town building. Please ask for directions, it is not yet mapped.
And, if someone in your party is not an outdoors person, no worries. You are camping on property with a cafe and spa.
The location is 50% Francophone/Anglophone during the summer.
