Thank you Carol, for your hospitality friendly manner and charming accommodations. I loved the early morning chats with you and the other guests over the never ending cups of Green Mountain coffee. You left me feeling as though I had just visited an old friend.
I bicycled to Vermont from Connecticut to visit the Wilson house in East Dorset. Because the purpose of bike packing is camping I set camp at one of the lean-tos in the shadow of Mount Aeolus. Each morning I was greeted by the sun advancing across the open field like an incoming tide. Serene? Refreshing? Yes! Bike riding Mad Tom Road across the ridge of the mountain? Maddeningly excellent!
If you camp here, Carol will tell you the bath facilities are just like home....she does not lie. Rooming or camping one will not go wrong staying here. Thank you Carol!
