And the wine cellar is amazing- pretty as can be w/ a great selection. The food? Outstanding! The breakfasts are ample and delicious: I tried them all. Don't miss the kale and bacon scramble.

Stopped in for a snack on a rainy day while touring the countryside. Cool store with lots of character. They seem to have no system for ordering food. Sign says to order here with no one there to help. ??? I wouldn't say it's a must visit, but I would stop by if driving through.

Stopped off here for sandwich, soup and chips lunch pre-made for our bus load of leaf peepers in New England. This store sells one-of-a-kind nostalgic (and some not so nostalgic) products that you would find in a century plus old store. Next door is the owners personal collection of rock n roll memoriable items from early '50's on. Many one... More

I was with a group of 12. We all came to the area to watch or participate in the Spartan Challenge in Killington. After a long day with a mixed group, we decided upon the General Store for a light dinner. Prices were reasonable. Selection great for those who like a healthy choice or those who like burgers or pizza.... More

We've been coming here for 10 years or so as a snowmobile family. My husband and I stopped in the other day for lunch. What a disappointment! We were not greeted when we walked in and we had to wait to place our order until the three workers finished their conversation. While we were eating our sandwiches, a local came... More
