Last week I gave you all my Boston travel guide and this week I’m brining you our Vermont travel guide! In this post you will find where to stay, eat and what to do on your next visit.
We always like staying in place that is centralized around other areas to travel to so we decided to stay at the Stowe Mountain Resort (spruce peak). The ground of this resort are gorgeous! There are restaurants and shops and more! I will say though make sure you check on when some of their features are open. Some of the shops and restaurants weren’t opening back up until the winter season. Other amenities you fill are an arcade and heated pools as well as a fireplace in the rooms.
Cold Hallow Cider Mill – This cider mill was top on my list because they have fresh made apple cider and donuts! YES and they were so worth the wait! At the Cold Hallow Cider Mill you can also see the process of how they make it all too. If you stop in makes sure you pick up these cute Vermont Syrup souvenirs.
Ben and Jerry’s Factory Tour – You say ice cream I say WHERE! This was about a 20 minute tour that was actually really cool. The story of how Ben and Jerry got started was awesome plus at the end you get a free sample. At the end you can purse around and get ice cream and walk to see the flavor graveyard.
Smugglers Notch – We did this the last day we were in Vermont. There are hiking paths and rest spots where you can read up on the history. Make sure to dress WARM!
Bear Pond Bookstore – Looking for a good book or game stop in here.
The Country Store – This little place was like a mix of anthropology and William Sonoma. There are so many cute little nicknacks and home goods.
Piecasso – The pizza here was delicious!
Sushi Yoshi – Chinese , Hibachi and a steakhouse. There was an event happening the night we went and it was a bit hectic but the food was great.
Idletyme Breweing Company – I had high hopes for this brewery but sadly they were out of a lot of the brews we wanted to try but the on we did get was lovely. We also got a giant pretzel was good too.
Hourglass / Solstice – Both of these places are in the Stowe Mountain Resort where we stayed. Hourglass is where we had most of breakfast and dinner. Solstice is great for appetizers and drinks.
Black Cap Coffee – Great coffee and pastries! I got a raspberry and cream cheese pasty that was so scrumptious. They also have sandwiches and beer.
Lots of stores have these maps of Stowe and I would highly recommend grabbing one. Inside the map you can find more restaurants and places to take selfies. Really there are so many cute towns and shops to see as well as fall foliage. We just missed all the vibrant red foliage with a storm that had just happened a few days before our arrival. It was still very gorgeous and I would love to go back to Vermont!
