Travel

Bread Loaf campus is in the small town of Ripton in the heart of Central Vermont. Bread Loaf is a four-hour drive from Boston, five hours from NYC. If you plan to fly, it is ~one hour from Burlington, VT (the closest airport) and two hours from Albany, NY (the next closest). We recommend allowing  at least 2- 2.5 hours of time between landing in Burlington and the start time of the retreat on Monday, June 1. Public ground transportation is limited between Breadloaf and airports, so renting a car is a convenient option for those wishing for flexible ground transit. Arranging a rideshare through Middlebury Transit is a good economical option for those that wish to carpool. More information will also be provided in registration confirmation and future correspondence with participants.
