Landmark Trust USA manages these 626 pristine acres in southern Vermont, where a team of orchardists tends some 90 varieties of low-spray heirloom and unusual apples. This beautiful property served as the location for the orchard scenes in The Cider House Rules. There’s a farm stand, plus classes on pruning and grafting, pie baking, and cider making. And you may rent either of two of the many historic structures here for a weekend getaway–or the adjoining Rudyard Kipling estate, Naulakha, where he wrote his Jungle Book series. 707 Kipling Road, Dummerston, VT. 802-254-6868; landmarktrustusa.org
