Once a year we have the pleasure of visiting a dear friend who lives in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. It’s always fun when you can visit a place that is in your own home state but is so different from where you live! It was not even an hour and a half from our house but it felt like we’d traveled to another time and place.
This old house that was once a part of a large dairy farm sits on the top of a hill with rolling fields in every direction. It is so beautiful. The white farmhouse and the green hills is classic Vermont.
While there we drove to the nearby town of Danville where there is a wonderful walking and bicycling trail that used to be the old railroad and is very well maintained. The views along the path were just amazing.
After a three-mile walk we stopped for lunch at the Peacham Café. Lunch was delicious and made good use of local food. Even the flowers on the table were freshly picked.
After our lunch we stopped at a local farm stand, WillowBrook Farm. The owners were picking flowers which they dry and sell. It was fun to see the variety of tomatoes they had for sale!
By the time we got back to the farmhouse there was just enough time for a swim. Nothing like a spring fed pond to cool you off!
It was a wonderful, relaxing two days away and always hard to leave this beautiful spot. Time to head home on our own private highway.We are looking forward to the day our home finally sells and we can move west, but I will miss visiting this very special spot. There is nothing like enjoying a change of scenery so close to home!
