Routing suggestions for a month-long tour in New England

I just finished riding up the Atlantic Coast, starting at Charlestong, SC and stopping at my in-laws' house in Lambertville, NJ. It turns out that my wife and I and much of her family will be meeting there in August allowing me to plan another East Coast tour leaving Lambertville around Sept. 1. My wife is flying out to Burlington, VT October 3, where I plan to meet her for several days of leaf peeping.

From Lambertville to Burlington is a few hundred miles, so I have to ride somewhere else before ending at Burlington. One idea is to continue on the ACA Atlantic Coast up to Maine. Just north of Portland, ME the Northern Tier meets the Atlantic Coast route. I could switch to the Northern Tier, ride west toward Lake Champlain and then detour up to Burlington. This is closer to the 1000 miles I typically do on a month-long tour. If I have more time and desire, I can go around the Lake, head north to Montreal, or find some other place to ride near there.

This is one obvious option but I am open to any and all other suggestions. Since I've never been to this part of the world, I'd be interested in the best way to spend a month on a bike there.

Ride to Maine, then cut across NH in the White Mountains... then into VT to Burlington.
Or get up to Boston area, then cut the south west corner of NH, and head north in VT.

Lots to ride in VT, and just over the lake in the ADKs, especially in the fall.

Check my sig for my blog... I'm in Burlington.
So long. Been nice knowing you BF.... to all the friends I've made here and in real life... its been great. But this place needs an enema.
