The Dog Days of Summer

August 5th, 2012 by Deer Brook Inn

Need a break from the heat, or at least a distraction? Come to Vermont. In spite of the heat, the nights cool down comfortably. Sit out on our patio after the sun goes down, bring your favorite wine and enjoy fine conversation with the spectacular, star studded Vermont sky as the backdrop.

August is full of events. Every Wednesday afternoon visit our Village Green for the Market on the Green where you can buy fresh farm produce and meats, great pies and cheeses, crafts and of course local Vermont Maple Syrup. Then on Thursdays, grab a terrific sandwich from one of the many sandwich shops and sit on the Village Green and listen to the Brown Bag Concerts at noon. The Billings Farm has an exhibit of quilts and the museum, Manager’s House and the Rockefeller Mansion are not to be missed.

If outdoor activities are your thing, we can set you up with hiking and biking trails, kayak and canoe trips. If you prefer shopping, antiques, galleries, beautiful mom and pop stores on “Main Street” we have those too. You just can’t go wrong in Vermont.

August 11 is The Taste of Woodstock. Taste the cheeses, wines, and beers of the area and dance, eat ice cream and much more.

So come on- we are waiting for you.
