I went to Vermont for the Civil Union. I saw Queeche Gorge, Simon Pearce, Woodstock, Burlington, and wineries.

Autumn leaves, covered bridges, wonderful restaurants, friendly people${QuickSuggestions} Take Route 100 for the beautiful, scenic views which will include waterfalls, covered bridges, and quaint towns with wonderful restaurants.${BestWay} Driving,and hiking. There are many streams for canoeing. The area was also very bicycle friendly with safe, paved trails off the main roads.

This was a one suite Bed and Breakfast that had beautiful hard wood flooring and open beam ceilings. Upon entry you walk up a split flight of stairs and enter a room with a king sized bed with a pictue window as the head board overlooking Mount Pennicle. A seating area with a love seat and easy chair with gas burning fireplace is accented with a complete bookshlef that is packed with games, books, and movies. There's also a refrigerator and microwave and dining area.

The facilities im general were beautiful with a 2 person whirlpool tub surrounded by windows looking out to the back pasture and woods. A deck surronded the back side and left side of the suite, which gave full view to the deer eating apples from the trees.

Bev and Carol fixed a continental breakfast each morning of fruit muffins, cereal, and coffee.

A wonderful place with wonderful host who was ready with info on what to do and see.

At Simon Pearce you not only enjoy a fine menu that includes everything from a lobster roll sandwich to sesame chicken, salads, soups and other tasty entrees, you can explore a glass blowing experience. There are demonstrations of glass making--everything from bowls to wine glasses. You actually dine on the glassware they produce!

In addition, you dine in view of Quechee Gorge,and the Quechee covered bridge offers a breath taking view.
