We went up on a girls w/e with 9 of us and couldn't have asked for a better time!
We had the whole inn to ourselves due to the large number. Tom and Linda, the innkeepers, couldn't have been more accommodating or wonderful. Each of our rooms were unique and charming with the signature featherbed that we would all sink into after a day of outside activities(snowshoeing, hiking and of course some shopping!) We awoke to a delicious farmhouse gourmet breakfast and throughout the day there were fresh cookies baked with coffee, tea and hot chocolate along with a roaring fire with ample magazines to while away a snowy afternoon-pure bliss!
Don't miss the opportunity to go to The Store in Waitsfield- gourmet kitchen store that also does cooking classes that you can participate in and end up with a delicious meal-Chef John is a delight and an amazing and talented chef. He not only managed the kitchen and food like a whiz, but all of us as well!
All our experiences were a delight from beginning to end-don't miss it!
