Fall at The Weathersfield Inn in Vermont
During our yearly visit back east to spend time at our family cabins in New Hampshire, we took a little getaway up through southern Vermont at the end of September. We spent our first night at The Weathersfield Inn in Perkinsville, VT, based on a recommendation from a friend.
We lucked out on the timing of our trip to see the fall foliage, which was already underway. But our timing at this foodie haven wasn’t so great. Their popular restaurant was closed on Mondays, the night we stayed. (The gracious inn owners directed to another wonderful foodie restaurant just up the road.)
But there are worse things. The place was gorgeous and quaint. The grounds were wooded and they had a little pond and visitors could explore their kitchen gardens near the main inn.
Turns out the owners are a nice couple from Pasadena, California! They had owned it for about three years, and now it’s among the top inns in New England! (It’s not cheap, but well worth a romantic getaway!)
Apparently, the place is hopping on nights the restaurant is open, and it draws a locals crowd and anyone lucky enough to be passing by or staying at the inn.
This is the entrance, which features this wood-burning stove designed to bake bread.
Apparently the area has an agricultural history and is turning out a lot of home-grown, sustainable, green and organic (and all that good stuff) products, such as this boiled cider.
The Inn also sponsors cooking classes. I would have loved to attend the “Eat, Drink, Like It’s 1699” class on vintage cocktails. Would love to raise a glass to this amazing place!
