... which seems a lot bigger. Penelope pointed out some local landmarks whilst we toured around picking up bits and pieces for the nights culinary experience and some other stuff. One store we visited (Penelope was determined to try and find me a hat to replace the one I lost in Glasgow) was a local sporting goods store. Something we wouldn't see in Australia was rack after rack of camouflage gear, from waders to jackets hats and even ...
... Penelope, my long time correspondents here for a wonderful country breakfast prepared by Donna, the proprietor of the quaint B&B. Of course one couldn't come to Vermont without having pancakes with Maple syrup there was bacon and muffins all preceded by a lovely bowl of fruit, strawberries, rockmelon, kiwi fruit - you get the idea - great way to start the day!
We went back to John and Penelope's place, a rustic farmhouse which I'll call ...

Heading off in the car we past through beautiful Vermont (almost Fall) countryside. The leaves here are just about to change - had we come a week or so later we would have experienced the wonderful colours of Fall in Vermont.
Passing through the countryside we saw some of the flood damage caused by a hurricane two years back and stopped at a covered bridge over a stream. An unusual sight for us Australians as we don't, as a ...
So, after our morning walk to Emerald Lake we headed north and east to Woodstock. Brenda was keen (not VT) to get some real, farm made maple syrup and cheese. We passed about a hundred signs along the way offering each, also fine woodworking and inns of all sorts. We passed Killington, a big ski area. Very cool. This route, Hwy. 4 will be jam packed with ...
... the warmest part of the day is the last couple of hours. By the time we reached Gorham at the top of the White Mountains, the sun came out which made for great riding. Hardly any traffic on the roads as it is low tourist season for the area. When we made it Lincoln, which was our end goal for the day we decided to continue on to a place called Lebanon. Looking at the maps we went route 118 through ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Applebutter Inn Woodstock
Warm and Wonderful
I just can't say enough about the warm and wonderful hospitality, and the comfort of the lovely rooms (beautiful fabrics, comfortable beds) at the Applebutter Inn in Woodstock. Barbara's baking is unrivaled in my experience, and Michael's creative, gourmet breakfasts were delicious. These proprietors are generous and genuine hosts. I have visited only once, but need to look no further...I have booked in advance for several weekends in the near and distant future, and will sincerely recommend a visit to friends heading for Vermont.
Best B&B Yet
This B&B was the best for us for a lot of reasons. Mainly, because it was the combination of everyhting that we're looking for in an inn: great hosts, nice accommodations, peace and quiet, good location and, of course, awesome breakfasts.
We will highly recommend this B&B to anyone and will return often. It is the best B&B that we've staying at in over 10 years.
For the past few years, my job has required me to travel to Woodstock, Vermont twice a month and each visit requires an overnight stay. I am delighted to say that the Applebutter Inn, a B&B right outside the center of Woodstock, has been a home away from home for me for these trips.
My husband and I stayed at the Applebutter Inn for four wonderful nights. The location is ideal--seven miles off Interstate 89 (so no noise) and a few miles outside of bustling Woodstock. The Inn is beautifully appointed but not stuffy, and the rooms are in pristine condition--but never overly cute or cloying. Our hosts, Barbara and Michael, were knowledgeable, helpful, and fun to talk to without being intrusive. They directed us to all the best restaurants for dinner; they gave us guidance on sightseeing; and they even helped me keep up on my marathon training and cycling by pointing me to local trails and roads where I could enjoy the view while getting in the miles. (If you're a runner, you're in luck, as the Inn is located less than half a mile from a lightly travelled but well-maintained dirt road along the river.) The breakfasts prepared by Barbara and served by Michael are truly divine and delicious--a special treat each morning using local produce and always accompanied by Barbara's homemade applebutter. Each afternoon, Barbara serves special sweets--mini blueberry cheesecakes, coconut chocolate cookies-- with freshly brewed ice tea that we made sure not to miss. Of all the B&Bs we've stayed in, the Applebutter Inn was the best on all dimensions. We will go back again and again.
A bright light shines at the Applebutter Inn in Woodstock, Vermont. Innkeepers, Barbara and Michael have kept this light going for the past 4 years. This wife and husband make a good team in the kitchen, breakfast room, and all through this home away from home. Their strength of service comes from the heart. It was a pleasure to sit on the side porch, and for our first afternoon tea enjoy Barbara's wonderful coconut chocolate chip cookies. The breakfast room was a large open space with 3 guest tables and big windows on 2 sides that made it possible for us to look out at the lovely garden. There were also a number of bird feeders which give guests the opportunity to eye one of God's colorful creatures stopping by for a snack. The breakfasts on the 2 mornings we spent there were feasts for the eyes and delights to the palette. They included fruit cups, with selections from the garden. Chef Michael's lemon souffle pancakes and blueberry pancakes were a great start to the morning. My parents bedroom, the Cameo Room, was a private retreat in back of the house. My room, the Jonathan Room, was at the top of the stairs in the main house. I enjoyed 2 restful evenings, and mornings waking up to the sound of the birds was a pleasure. Both bedrooms were clean, neat, and nicely decorated with antiques. Visiting Vermont, with its wide open spaces and interesting places, continues to be a pleasure for the 3 of us. This year being no exception. The hospitality, care, and commitment of Barbara and Michael was a blessing to remember. Sincerely, David White, Lowell, Massachusetts
I have no problems in stating that Barbara and Michael served the best breakfasts i have ever eaten in a guesthouse. The breakfast was always freshly made, every day was different and not once did the standard drop.
Michael and Barbara were perfect hosts even setting up the satellite tv to allow me to watch the FA cup football final.
When it was time for us to move on we were sent on our way with a goody bag of cookies and brownies for the journey.
Upon arriving at the Inn, we were greeted warmly by the Inn's delightful owners, Barbara and MIchael. We immediately felt relaxed after our long journey-the roaring fire in "The Yellow Room," warm cookies and hot tea didn't hurt either.
Barbara and Michael make you feel like you are at your "home away from home." The gourmet breakfasts are almost worth the trip alone. We have been coming here for several years and never had the same breakfast twice, each one a real treat. The inn is centrally located for just about anything one would want to do. If you run out of iideas, Barbara and Michael have plenty of good suggestions. A truly enjoyable experience that is not to be missed !
We stayed with Barbara and Michael for three nights, and very much enjoyed our time at the Applebutter. The house is lovely, the hosts very welcoming and helpful, and the breakfasts were excellent. Room was comfortable, and the inn is a great base for touring.
Details, details, details
Barbara and Michael's attention to detail and sincerely warm and welcoming hospitality make the Applebutter Inn just the place you are looking for for a few nights in a home away from home. Most of all, your hosts are interesting, fun and enjoy people.
