If you read my last post, you know that I recently visited Woodstock, Vermont for a quick weekend getaway. Woodstock is one of the small towns that you could picture yourself living in even if you’re a city person. It’s just so beautiful and quaint.
This year was hands down the best year I can remember for foliage. My trip was over the last weekend of October and the leaves were a beautiful copper color.
Most of the drive was via highway, but once you hit Vermont it’s mostly one lane roads. I particularly love this stretch of winding road.
Before heading directly to “downtown” Woodstock, I had to take a quick detour and stop by Sleepy Hollow Farm. Of course, it started snowing just as I arrived. I mean, look at this…
Main Street aka Elm Street is incredibly charming. Stroll along and window shop (or real shop).
One shop to check out is F.H.Gillingham & Sons. It’s a must. They have everything. I think I bought a bottle of wine, a wine key, incredible local cheese, fancy crackers, and some Dr. Bronner’s soap. So yeah, I stand by my “they have everything” comment.
Once you’re done shopping, wander down to the residential areas. The houses are the epitome of Greek Revival. I can’t promise this guy below will always be decorated for Halloween, but I can promise it will always be quintessentially New England.
ALSO, there are covered bridges galore in Vermont. The Middle Covered bridge is a can’t miss, and literally, you can’t miss it. It’s right around the corner from Elm Street, across from the town square.
I fell head over heels with Woodstock, Vermont during this trip. The town is incredibly charming, and funnily enough, I managed to see two seasons while I was there. I plan on being back very soon. I mean, I need to see Woodstock in the spring and summer too!
