Smugglers’ Resort is a big draw for winter sports enthusiasts, and that’s why many people live in nearby Cambridge. That said, summer in Cambridge Vermont can be as exciting, fun, and rewarding as winter, and a lot of people live in Cambridge because it’s a thriving rural Vermont community.
The town of Cambridge consists of two villages—Cambridge and Jeffersonville. In each village, the municipal services are distributed between the village and the town. The villages are located about two miles apart on Vermont Route 15, and each village has its own unique features. Here is an overview of each village’s unique features:
- Boyden Valley Winery
- Cambridge Village Market
- Family Practice Associates (medical clinic)
Jeffersonville (a highly artistic community)
- Aubuchon Hardware
- Bryant Gallery
- Cambridge Elementary School
- Festival of the Arts
- Hanley’s General Store
- Height of Land Publishing (Backcountry and Alpinist magazines)
- Jeffersonville Farmers’ and Artisan Market
- The Farm Store (natural foods)
Both Cambridge and Jeffersonville attract families, artists, entrepreneurs, farmers, skiers, loggers, writers and publishers, laborers, business owners, medical practitioners, and people who work in the ski industry. Below is a calendar of fun and entertaining summer events that take place during the summer in Cambridge Vermont and in Jeffersonville.
