Merry Christmas From Vermont

Searching for snow and a white Christmas, we headed to Vermont. The Inn at Weathersfield was a perfect setting for a Christmas getaway, but this year the snow was a little sparse.

The Inn was built in 1792 and is just outside the tiny hamlet of Perkinsville.

This area is known for its covered bridges. We went in search of the Taftsville bridge because our room at the inn is called Taftsville. Each room is named for a covered bridge.

The Inn is about a 30 minute drive from Woodstock, Vermont.

A popular winter activity is a horse drawn sleigh ride. We called around to arrange one but the lack of snow is an issue. Some of the stables were switching to wagons. We found a farm 1 1/2 hours north that has enough snow. We scheduled a ride for the 26th.

Luckily for us the Inn at Weathersfield has won awards for their food. We had a stellar dinner our first night.
