Girls Trip | Woodstock, Vermont

It has become somewhat of a tradition to go to Woodstock, Vermont for a girls night after Christmas. My sister, mother and I (and now Miss Lucy) headed on our road trip and had a great time. One of our favorite things to do is find little treasures in antique shops. What a a great drive from Maine to Woodstock that is...

We stopped at the Quechee Gorge Antique Mall
and I found a great collection of antique silver plated and pewter flatware. One of my favorite things is monogrammed flatware and serving pieces. I actually got a beautiful monogrammed ladle from Matt's grandmother this year for Christmas. So I did not buy anything- but almost got the 'A' spoons!

Once we got into Woodstock, we settled in at the Shire Motel which was very reasonable, comfortable and walking distance to town. The 'Main' street has many cute shops including Vermont Flannel which I got a great flannel shirt Matt has been wanting as a late Christmas present.

I loved this Vermont roll neck sweater for kids we found at Red Wagon Toy Co.

Some more shopping...

We had a good dinner at Bentley's (Lucy is an amazingly good baby) and then strolled over to the Woodstock Inn for an after dinner drink. We had a great time walking though the beautiful inn checking out the gift shop, and having a hot toddy by the fire.

On on our way out of town, we stopped at one of our favorites, Simon Pearce in Quechee Village. Simon Pearce makes beautiful hand blown glass pieces, including wonderful wine glasses we used at lunch. They retail for $64 a don't break any of those! They have a wonderful flag ship restaurant, the food was great, and again, Lucy was a good little girl.

Beautiful restaurant and overlooking Quechee River and Village.

If you are ever in New England, and looking for a great place to enjoy all that Vermont has to offer, I highly recommends Woodstock, Vermont! I hope every one has a Happy New Year.
