Below are places of interest – dining – touristy – entertainment:

Some fairly new restaurants in the area! Check it out:

The Hartland Diner in Jessup’s Plaza at Hartland 3 Corners – open 7 days a week for lunch and breakfast (served all day!).Note: Hartland Diner in Hartland 3 Corners will be closed on Tues. & Wed. for the months of Feb. and Mar. Back to open 7 days a week April 1st.

The owners of the former Stella’s restaurant have opened a restaurant in Windsor at the railroad station (Windsor Station Restaurant and Barroom)serving dinner with lots of music events as well!

Opened in Quechee, Singleton’s Market and Jake’s Market with food items, deli, Vermont products and clothing. It has almost everything you could need from fresh fish, homemade sausages, wine, beer…the list is endless!

Another new restaurant in Woodstock – The Worthy Kitchen where the Eastender used to be (on the East end of Rt. 4)! Very casual atmosphere, limited menu but the specials change and the food is great (highly recommend the steak!). Draft Beer choices are endless and there is also a token wine selection. The bartenders/wait staff are great fun too!

Another new restaurant on the West end of Woodstock is On the River Inn and in Quechee, The Public House, near the putt-putt golf, offering food and craft beers.

If you are returning to the area from previous visits please note there are lots of restaurants in the area you may wish to try: Trap Door Bakery and Deli in Quechee, and in Woodstock: Melaza Bistro, Pi Brick Oven Trattoria and Pi Martini Tapas Bar(with Jazz music every Wed. at 7pm), Anchor Wat and Mon Vert Cafe. Of course, many of my “old” favorites are still there: Kedron Valley Inn and Tavern(S. Woodstock)-every Sun. is Burger and Beer night; Keeper’s (Reading), The Black Rock Restaurant (Springfield), Long Trail Brewery(Bridgewater) for lunch, Harpoon Brewery (Windsor), Simon Pearce restaurant and The Parker House Inn(Quechee) and many more!! The Kedron Valley Inn is only 3 mi. from the cabin. Bentley’s restaurant in Woodstock offers dancing to their DJ on Friday and Saturday nights at 10 pm. Harpoon Brewery (at Artisan’s Place in Windsor) is open some evenings for dinner – check first as their schedule changes. In the summer there is often Oven-Fired Pizza offered outside.

Another food “establishment” which has garnered a big following is the “elevated food truck” off Rt. 12 on Damon Rd. between Hartland and the intersection with Rt. 4 heading to Quechee. It’s called Chef Brad’s Crazy Side. He is a fantastic chef, thus the big following. You can usually see his specials posted on his Facebook site. People rave over his chicken in a basket. I personally like his hamburgers or lamb-burgers and sweet potato fries. When the temperatures are cool I always try one of his homemade soups. You can BYOB and tables are set up outside and also in his bus. Don’t let the casual appearance fool you – the food is great!

I recommend a visit to Sugarbush Farm (www.sugarbushfarm.com) where they have a wonderful educational display and video on sugaring, an animal petting area and a wonderful cheese and maple syrup tasting room with of course a gift shop full of goodies to take home or buy for gifts.

Harpoon Brewery – Windsor – don’t forget live music on Thurs. evenings. And visit Farmstead Cheese (Sustainable Farmer) next door! They offer lots of local products. During the summer they have oven fired pizzas for sale to eat on the picnic tables outside. Also in the same complex there is the Silo making Vermont’s own Vodka/Gin/Whiskey/Moonshine. Often the Silo and Farmstead Cheese team up with some local musical talent and hold a special event at the Silo, serving cocktails and food bites. These places are located in Artisan’s Park in Windsor off Rt. 5 – home to many other interesting places such as Simon Pearce outlet store and Great River Outfitters who feature a lot of Water Activities – check out their calendar http://greatriveroutfitters.com. Sometimes in the winter dog sledding is there – check with www.braeburnsiberians.com

Brown’s Tavern is also open for dinner at the Ascutney Resort nearby along with their Maple Kitchen restaurant which features Prime Rib on Thursday nights. Ascutney Mountain has been revived as Ascutney Outdoors which now has a ski tow rope and there is no charge to ski there. There are also trails which have been opened for biking and hiking.

If you stop at Mike’s Mobil just off Rt. 91 on Rt. 12/5 you’ll find some hot foods to choose from as well as deli sandwiches made to order, to keep you from needing to cook that first meal! Large selection of beer,wine, and coffee. It’s also the closest place to get diesel.

Montshire Museum in Norwich, VT gets top marks for it’s displays for young and old including the outside grounds www.montshire.org

The Windsor Station Restaurant(Windsor, VT) has live music every Tuesday and Friday. Harpoon Brewery (Rt. 5 Windsor) has live music every Thursday and first Saturday as well as brick oven-fired pizzas on the weekends(Summer and Fall). Browns Tavern (Ascutney Resort, VT) has Live music every Sunday Skunk Hollow Tavern (Hartland 4 Corners) has live music every Wednesday and Friday.

Since there’s no Wi-Fi at Leave No Trace Cabin, you might find it helpful to know where there is Wi-Fi in Woodstock.  The library has Wi-Fi as well as the Woodstock Inn. But while in town you might also enjoy a cup of java and lunch or breakfast as well as free Wi-Fi at The Daily Grind Coffee & Sweets on Central St. next to Taylor Lauren.

Most of the Winter visitors to Leave No Trace Cabin will be looking forward to snow and cold weather. Being at the mercy of Mother Nature can be exciting but also dangerous at worst and inconvenient at best. You should be prepared when travelling in your vehicle to Vermont and while in Vermont. Being prepared means 1) driving a vehicle that is preferably 4 wheel drive or front wheel drive but above all has GOOD tread on the tires – hopefully Winter tires or chains; 2) knowledge of how to drive in snow and ice – steady acceleration – not fast – and turning in the direction of the skid; 3) Carrying the essentials in your vehicle at all times: heavy clothes, hat, gloves, boots, WOOL* blanket, snow shovel, bag of dirt or kitty litter for traction on ice. (A WOOL blanket also can be used under your tires for traction.) Don’t be afraid – be prepared! ENJOY the beauty of Winter – don’t let it become your undoing! Other cautions are electronics – use of a GPS is great but keep in mind that VT has lots of roads which are on the maps but locally are known to be really trails – not car passable – but GPS doesn’t distinguish between those types of roads so if it looks like you may not be on a passable road – don’t keep driving – backtrack and get local directions. Cellphone service in Vermont is sketchy so the best bet is to be prepared.
