Woodstock, Vermont



The day after Christmas, we set off for Woodstock, Vermont for a little winter vacation.  This charming town is exactly what you imagine a quaint New England town looking like.


The day after we arrived, Gretchen and family joined us!  We travel well together because everyone is comfortable either doing things together or going our separate ways.


We stayed at The Woodstock Inn and found it to be lovely.  We loved the giant fireplace right as you walk in the door and the children were thrilled with the newly opened game room.






It was quite cold, but it had, unfortunately, been raining prior to our arrival.  Therefore, we didn't go skiing as we had planned since neither Bryce nor I are keen to ski on ice!  We did, however, find lots of other things to do!  Exploring the town and shops was fun for all especially when hot chocolate was promised.







Can you imagine having this fabulous library to go to whenever you wanted a book?  It had the most amazing children's area I've ever seen.


We visited Billings Farm and Museum where we toured the dairy and the gorgeous old farmhouse.




We took a trip to Sugarbush Farm to pick up a gallon of maple syrup!  They also allow you to taste test the various grades of syrup.



On our last day, we took a snowy hike up Mt. Tom.




P.S.  We had an authentic farm to table dinner one evening at Cloudland Farm.  They only serve dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings but it's not to be missed.  Plus, they were extra accommodating about Harris' diet restrictions.

  1. Marvelous photos! Love that you shared so many. Almost like being there! Grace and horse jumped immediately onto our fridge! Harris is too funny. My what big eyes that adorable calf has! Everyone looks so relaxed and happy.

  2. If you go back, Stowe, VT is also a great place to visit. We loved the Melting Pot and many other charming attractions there (not to mention the Von Trapp Family Lodge).
