A CHILL CREEPS INTO THE AIR - not a bite - just a nip to let us know a new season is at hand. Our autumn leaves lay on the ground and the wind lifts and swirls them into spinning tornadoes. As you stroll along sidewalks of quaint towns, fallen leaves crackle and crunch under your feet and the smell of a smoky bonfire fills the air. Sunny days of deep blue skies, crisp air wild with leaves, villages with white-steepled churches, frosty mornings, tastes of the harvest - it's November in Vermont and a beautiful time to visit.
There are so many reasons to visit Vermont I can’t list them all … but here are a few:
Reason #10 - Harvest Markets - Vermont has more farmers markets per capita than any other state
Reason #9 - World's Best Cheddar - Vermont has more cheesemakers per capita than any other state
Reason #8 - Good Beer - Vermont has more microbreweries per capita than any other state
Reason #7 - Views - Our views go on forever
Reason #6 - No Billboards Allowed - why should beautiful scenery be obstructed by billboards?
Reason #5 - Reflective Moments
Reason #4 - Because it's "Moonlight in Vermont"
Reason #3 - Inspiring Steeples
Reason #2 - World-class Photo Opportunities - Vermont has more than 100 covered bridges
Reason #1 - It's In The Trees - Three-quarters of Vermont is forested. The other quarter is just as beautiful!
Don't believe us? Come to Vermont and see for yourself...
Today, as I sit by my window, gazing across the Quechee Gorge, I notice that a soft mist is mointening its hillsides. Earlier this week, and much to the delight of my guests, a hot-air balloon ascended from my backyard, gracefully soared above my trees and then drifted silently across the Gorge...always such an impressive sight. The autumn colors this year were spectacular and its beauty was spread out upon the entire state's landscape. When you visit, simply drive our back roads and you will quickly discover that each corner has its own beauty..and, at times, backed by a cerulean sky or a dusty purple bank of clouds or a massive rising moon.
And here in my bit of paradise, my primary goal is to provide each and everyone of my guests - past, present and future - with my most personal service. I believe this service begins when inquiries and reservations are first made. Online booking services appear to be convenient but don't allow me, as your future innkeeper, to make sure you are reserving the accommodation best suited to your needs. And they don't allow me to fully describe just how special my inn and grounds are. Therefore, I do hope you will consider booking directly with me. You may reserve on my website, email or call me directly at 802-295-0606. And be sure to visit my Specials Page for any current discounts I may be featuring. Also, check out my What's Happening Here and There Page for local events. I'm looking forward to hearing from you and.....
from all of us here at the Inn at Clearwater Pond, we wish you, our past, present and future guests, a very Happy Thanksgiving!
