Vermont Fall Foliage and Covered Bridges Near Woodstock

October 26, 2018 by Corey A. Edwards

Vermont fall foliage and covered bridgesWe’re nearing the end of the season of the peak for Vermont fall foliage but that doesn’t mean it isn’t still beautiful out there, especially with all the wonderful covered bridges in our neck of the woods!

One of the nicest things about the Woodstock, Vermont area is that it’s always scenic. Even the worst days of weather have a hard time spoiling the view. Some say it’s the gently rolling countryside that makes the area so picturesque. Others point out our historic and friendly communities. Then, of course, there are the area’s numerous covered bridges.

We tend to see the area’s beauty as a combination of all these things and more – but those covered bridges are really neat looking, aren’t they? This is especially true when they’re surrounded by Vermont fall foliage.

Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site is is New Hampshire’s only national park and, as one of the least-visited parks in the country, apparently somewhat of a secret. Come see what you’ve been missing!

You may not recognize the name of Augustus Saint-Gaudens – but you’ll undoubtedly recognize his work. Saint-Gaudens created over 150 works of art in his lifetime, many of which remain iconic: The Shaw Memorial, Standing Lincoln, the Sherman Monument, the $20 Double Eagle gold piece. The list goes on and on.

Most of these famous pieces can be found in galleries and public spaces around the world … or just a short drive from our Woodstock B&B, in Cornish, NH.

Augustus Saint-Gaudens (1848 – 1907) was an American sculptor primarily known for his Civil War hero monuments. Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site preserves the sculptor’s home, gardens, and studios. The estate was just his summer home from 1885 to 1897, but became his residence from 1900 until his death in 1907.

One new development was the opening of a new brewery in Killington, VT – the Killington Beer Company. Having a new craft brewery near Woodstock is exciting – especially one so close!

Experience Vermont Maple Open House Weekend 2018

February 16, 2018 by Corey A. Edwards

Vermont Maple Open House Weekend 2018March is the month of maple and Vermont is celebrating it this year with the Maple Open House Weekend – March 24th and 25th, 2018. Visit Vermont’s sugarhouses, learn the maple harvest process, and enjoy snacks and samples of pure, delicious, Vermont maple.

Every year, as we move towards spring and the days get warmer, the sap of the sugar maples begins to flow. Maple sugaring time! Taps driven into the trees begin to fill the buckets that hang from them. After that, it is only a matter of time before the sugar houses begin processing the sap and the delectable scent of maple fills the air. Mmmmmmmmmmm.

Vermont is the country’s leading producer of maple syrup, producing 40% of the nation’s supply. Our maple sugaring season typically runs from late February to April. Vermont celebrates the harvest every year with various events. Many local farms and communities have their own traditions and festivals throughout the season.

One of the bigger events, held statewide, is the Vermont Maple Open House Weekend.
