Spring in Vermont

It appears Woodstock is getting an early spring.  The last two days have been in the 70′s and 80′s.  How unique, no snow on Easter Sunday in Vermont.  We are happily basking in the warmth and the sunlight.  Plants are starting to poke through the ground, soon there will be color!

Of course spring brings lots of activity to the Canterbury House.  Spring projects have started…Chaucers Garrett is getting a facelift. (stay tuned for new pictures on the website)  Lots of painting will be going on inside and out.  And of course, my favorite…working in the garden.  Cleanup in the beds starts anytime.  Spring really does bring a sense of renewal  and new beginnings doesn’t it? 

Now that spring is showing signs of arrival, it also gets us excited that for all of you who come to visit Woodstock from now through the fall season are in for a treat.  Starting with Vermont Law School graduation in May and Memorial Day week-end, the wonderful scent of the spectaular lilacs will be everywhere.  Law school graduation is such a milestone for graduates and their families, the Vermont setting  makes it even better!  We still have rooms available, so give us a call to book for your loved ones.

June of course, is exciting.  As always, the Covered Bridges Half Marathon is the first week-end in June.  Truly one of the best times to be in the Woodstock Area.  Hasn’t the weather been perfect for all of you who got in for 2010, to train for the race?  We look forward to seeing our repeat runners and those who have never been here before.  Better think about booking your room, we don’t have many rooms available.  You won’t regret it, it IS so much fun.

Now, after the CBHM is Dartmouth Graduation.  The area is overrun with proud parents, grandparents and extended families.  Talk about Smiles on faces!  Everywhere you look smiles.  Come on graduates, make sure Mom and Dad have a room for the week-end!

The last Big event in June is the Quechee Hot air Balloon Festival.  Absolutely breathtaking.  Another event you don’t want to miss!

I am also reminded that when the warmer weather arrives, outdoor dining is available.  Nothing better than sitting overlooking the waterfall at Simon Pearce having  lunch or dinner.  If you are lucky, maybe a hot balloon will float by.  Simply Breathtaking!  The food is really good too.

Okay, I am getting ahead of myself, so much to do and enjoy.  I will save more for future blogs.  Now if you are making those plans to visit Vermont either spring or summer, Bob and I are here, so contact us via email or call, book that room and we will help you plan the perfect Woodstock getaway.  Experience the excitement!
