Montgomery is a pleasantly liberal town in perhaps Vermont's most conservative region. This is also an excellent base in the summer for cycling, from the rail trail, to quiet rolling terrain which will bring you through some of the covered bridges if you like, or head upwards over either of the mountain passes over Jay Peak.

I am sorry you didn't pick Newport, VT, (pop. 5,000 approx) almost as close to Jay Peak but also on Lake Memphramegog, a magnificent lake that goes almost all the way to Montreal, with fabulous fishing (including ice-fishing.) Close to IS 91, this small town offers a quaint downtown with antique stores, trendy restaurants, health food stores, marina, boats ferrying passengers from and to Canada, and a freshly designed lake front walkway. I hear the hunting is fine, too (including moose!)
