The Romance of the Vermont Road Trip

Driving Woodstock’s Ottauquechee River… take a spontaneous trip to the Green Mountains of Vermont. Exactly like nothing else…. When it comes to travel, prominent landmarks aren’t always the impetus for a trip. For some, the destination is determined by the property – thankfully we have both!

A Vermont Road Trip Must Include Glassblowing at Simon Pearce!

Internationally recognized, Simon Pearce is best known for exquisite hand-crafted
glassware and hand-thrown pottery. Here, we watched glowing raw glass being
transformed into necessary luxuries using centuries-old traditions by skilled artisans…
watching for over an hour we were able to interact with several of the craftsmen and
women. The Hydro Power Plant harnesses the natural energy of the falling water to
produce the power that drives the glass furnaces – Fascinating!

Pileated woodpeckers are the largest of the common woodpeckers found in most of North America. With a height of almost 20 inches and a 30 inch wingspan makes it easy to spot while hiking. A recent guest was looking for a nice hike that offered stunning views so we sent her to The Mount Equinox summit, only 35 minutes from Pond Mountain Inn!

The Slate Valley Museum in Granville, New York is Well Worth Visiting!

It took almost five years to visit The Slate Valley Museum, but well worth visiting! A small, but
fascinating museum just ten minutes from the inn celebrates a remarkable history and culture of the quarrying community that was established along the New York-Vermont border in the 1800s. Many of the Slate Valley quarries are still in operation today!

Philadelphia II, a 1776 Gunboat Docked on Lake Champlain

An hour from Burlington is Vergennes, Vermont, the state’s oldest city and home to
the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum. The Philadelphia II , a 1776 gunboat
replica (the original is in the Smithsonian) is docked on the Lake Champlain
waterfront was especially impressive after listening to a fascinating forty minute
lecture about life on board. We learned what made the area so pivotal to Benedict
Arnold’s fleet during the American Revolution. And, there’s so much more…
shipwrecks, maritime artifacts and interesting exhibits.

Our guests love the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum. See the full Vergennes / Shelburne / Burlington Day Trip Itinerary
