We found out why handmade sausage making is an art that few can master. Surprisingly, we learned quickly, great family fun, and yes, this is the pork that we raised in 2022—incorporating innovative ingredients, championing sustainable farming and gained a following for our exceptionally fresh, and not to mention delicious, breakfast dishes. Good sausage is all about balance. Balance of salt and savory, balance of meat and fat, balance of spices and herbs—and red wine! We’ll be sharing the 20 lbs. of sausage we made for our guests—it’s delicious! Whether visiting for wellness, adventure or a culinary-focused retreat, Pond Mountain Inn offers a full immersion into the Vermont experience. Our breakfast menu is largely sourced from locally grown and foraged ingredients, and may be the nicest outdoor breakfast dining in Vermont!
Our goal is to visit every covered bridge in Vermont and the Vermont Covered Bridge Society is a wonderful resource with spectacular photographs! Click here to see one of our Enchanted Covered Bridge Day Tours.
Equally as interesting is The 251 Club of Vermont. If you’re seeking an authentic Vermont experience, you are invited to join over 6,000 members of the 251 Club in exploring the state while visiting its 251 towns and cities. Travel at your own pace, in a season or in a lifetime, by car, on foot, or whatever conveyance suits your style. There are no rules, no records to keep, no requirements. The expectation is that you will be inventive and adventurous in following the road less traveled to Vermont’s little-known corners, as well as its more popular destinations. And, where best to begin… at Pond Mountain Inn.
