Beautiful countryside from Rutland to Montpelier but if you don't want to stop in Killington, you need to plan for lunch. This is an excellent stop. Good menu, nice staff, interesting place. Not a lot of inventory but at least not a lot of tourist junk. Good ham sandwich for me.

We just stopped here while on our way to Burlington. It has a very friendly and inviting atmosphere. We purchased a couple of items in the grocery store area and we looked over the menu. It looks very good and we will give it a try next time we are passing this way. You just cannot say anything bad about... More

We go tubing up the road from this general store and never fail to stop here to get ice coffee, sandwiches, ice cream, or some other treat. The sandwiches are very good and definitely a cut above what you might expect. The ice coffee clearly isn't made by a barrista, but hey, that isn't why you're in this part of... More

Solid retail / food destination with full menu and great store. Beautiful decor with wood accents / flooring and an antique cooler full of great beer. Stopped on way from Stone Step hike to White River swimming hole and got lunch and cans for the River.

Not a fast food restaurant, this store has a great wine and beer selection (cellar). They have local vermont gifts and a great menu of breakfast and lunch foods. Really enjoyed the roast beef sandwich with arugula. The original building was built as the general store in 1888. Nice to see a restored building well used.

It has the rural small town charm, with delicious farm fresh foods and variety of beverages...the homemade donuts are a must, I got some groceries for the weekend as well as take out sandwichs for lunch and the check out lady helped me with my packages to the car :^) Prices are a little higher than a grocery store but...

Located just four miles from the base of Killington on scenic Route 100, The Original General Store offers market-driven breakfasts, lunches and dinners, a variety of locally crafted artisanal products, a 500 bottle wine cellar, Vermont cheeses and charcuteries and everyday sundries and essential items. From grass-fed beef, farm fresh eggs and organic chocolates to freshly pressed juices, maple syrup and penny candy, we seek to offer the finest products Vermont has to offer.

Pittsfield is minutes from Killington and Pico ski resorts and the Green Mountain National Golf Course, or an easy day trip to Sugarbush, Mad River or Okemo ski areas and the classic town of Woodstock, Vermont. If you are a lover of natural recreation, try our fantastic river swimming holes, hike Vermont's Long Trail or enjoy a leasurely tubing adventure on the White River.
