After visiting Montpellier and Burlington, Vermont all day, we checked into our Bed and Breakfast in Waterbury, VT and crashed for the night!
We stayed at the Grunberg Haus Bed and Breakfast
The next morning, we had breakfast with another couple from Texas. Here was one of the tables looking outside.
Ever stayed in a Bed and Breakfast? They are each different and I look forward to seeing what’s different about it.
They had fruit and coffee cake.
And french toast stuffed with cream cheese.
The living room
We went to Cold Hollow Cider Mill, a few miles away.
It reminded me of a place back in Indiana called Huber’s.
We learned about how they make apple cider. Here’s one of the apple presses:
And here’s the difference between apple cider and apple juice.
Their shop had any type of baking mix or maple syrup you would ever need.
And then there’s the apple cider donuts. They smell so good.
They had multiple conveyor lines going on full blast!
Next, we drove down the road to the Cabot Annex Shop.
You could try different types of syrup.
And then we sampled different cheeses
They had a lot of different types not available at the grocery store. Next, we went to Ben and Jerry’s.
They have a tour, gift shop, and ice cream shop.
Our tour guide
We learned about how they make their ice cream. Confession time- I had never had Ben & Jerry’s ice cream before.
At the end of the tour, they have a selected flavor for the day. It was Strawberry Shortcake.
Oh my! It was so good. I’ve been missing out.
After apple cider, donuts, cheese, and ice cream, we got back on the road and did a scenic drive.
Along a country road, and then a gravel road.. and dirt road… and then back to a blacktop.
It was a pretty dreary day, but we made the most of it… eating and driving around.
We finally made it to the covered bridges.
I have no idea what it is about them, but I had to stop and take pictures.
And get out of the car to take a picture inside.
Stop! There’s another!
That’s the end of the Columbus Day Weekend trip to Vermont!
