snap14 Green Mountains Getaway Woodstock Vermont

If you’ve ever had a hankering to visit the “one of the prettiest towns in America”, then take National Geographic’s recommendation and head for Woodstock, Vermont. This place is straight out of a Norman Rockwell painting – wholesome, classic, picturesque Americana at its best.

Woodstock is nestled in the scenic and aptly-named Green Mountains and isn’t really near anything except other small New England mountain towns and villages. This, of course, contributes wildly to its appeal.

First, you’ll need a place to stay. For an inn the matches the historic charm of the region, reserve a room at the Maple Leaf in nearby Barnard, VT. This AAA 4 Diamond rated Vermont Bed and Breakfast is everything you imagine – a huge Victorian farmhouse surrounded by acres of eastern hardwoods and wrapped in a gazebo-ed porch complete with straight-backed rocking chairs.

Then, take a scenic drive around Woodstock. Around here, all the drives are scenic in every season of the year. Just pick a road and go. You won’t be disappointed. Heck, there’s even a covered bridge in the center of town!

Floating over the tree tops in a hot air balloon is also a great way to enjoy the mountain scenery and is something you can do year round, too. Biking on the quiet country back roads is a true joy in Autumn, when the fall foliage is at its peak and in the Spring, during Maple sugar tapping time.

A getaway to the Green Mountains will satisfy the 3 R’s – rest, relaxation and romance. If that’s the prescription for what ails you, then get thee to Woodstock!
