Addison, Vermont is a quaint, peaceful town located within Addison County. Population of about 1500 residents. On its Western side, the lakeshore is dotted with seasonal and year-round homes to some very lucky residents, who have the benefit of tremendous views, and a coveted lakeside lifestyle. Charlotte is to the North, Monkton and New Haven to the East, and Waltham and Panton to the South. Middlebury is the nearest larger Town, just 15 minutes South, with Burlington an average 35 minutes North. 
The Addison Four Corners Store, with its house-made apple cider donuts, smoked pepperoni, big blocks of cheddar, local honey and maple syrup is the last stop before lakeside fun at Chipman Point Marina in Orwell, and the Ticonderoga Ferry in Shoreham, whose scenic 7-minute Lake Champlain crossings via underwater cable make it a quick trip to New York.
Addison is an outdoor recreationist's dream. Bicycling enthusiasts are thrilled by the nine variably difficult loops of the Lake Champlain Bikeways. Made of peaceful country roads, charming BandBs, country stores, farm stands, historic sites and a plethora of shoreline parks, cyclists know these routes are among the most valued on the East Coast.
