Jeudevine Falls, Hardwick VT

On my recent visit to the NEK of VT, my friends and I stopped to photograph Jeudevine Falls in Hardwick. This is a privately owned waterfall that is easily accessible. There is a five dollar fee to visit the property. Just put your money in the box that is located in the little covered bridge after parking. This location is also available to rent for weddings or private functions, and can accommodate up to 200 people.

It's a beautiful waterfall....

The grounds are meticulously maintained with many flowering shrubs and flowers.


We had a nice conversation with the owner who told us this October he is going to be closing the Property to visitors and putting it up for sale. He has put his heart and soul into maintaining the property and it's getting to be too much for him to handle. He tried to get the State of Vermont to purchase this magnificent waterfall, and the land and trails that go with it, to be preserved.....but the State will not purchase it. Such a shame, as this is one of the best waterfalls in the State of Vermont.

  1. Very disappointing--even moreso, given the current political climate--that the state won't be taking the steps necessary to preserve this property. Maybe someone needs to contact someone in state government (either the governor's office or a local member of the state legislature). Or failing that, the Nature Conservancy.

    1. From what I understand Kerry, he has exhausted every and all options of having this place preserved. :-(

  2. A most beautiful piece of heaven! I like the 2 upper falls merging into one cascade. Let's hope a right buyer will continue the way it has been maintained so far. Beautifully photographed by our own Carol, who understands and appreciates the glorious NEK ~
