The Hartland Diner is now open in Jessup’s Plaza at Hartland 3 Corners – 7 days a week for lunch and breakfast (served all day!). The owners of the former Stella’s restaurant are preparing to open a restaurant in Windsor at the railroad station (Windsor Station Restaurant and Barroom)serving dinner in the late Summer. They are busy renovating now! 

Opened in Quechee Singleton’s Market with food items, deli, Vermont products and clothing – check it out on Facebook.

Firestone’s Restaurant in Quechee is now closed but River Stones restaurant is now open in the same location with a lot of the old favorites on the menu as well as some new delicious sounding items.

Another new restaurant is coming to Woodstock – The Worthy Kitchen where the Eastender used to be….they are busy renovating.

 If you are returning to the area from previous visits please note their are new 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(with Jazz music every Wed. at 7pm), and Mon Vert Cafe. Of course, many of my “old” favorites are still there: Kedron Valley Inn and Tavern(S. Woodstock), Keeper’s (Reading), The Black Rock Restaurant (Springfield), Harpoon Brewery (Windsor), Long Trail Brewery for lunch(Bridgewater), Simon Pearce restaurant and The Parker House(Quechee) and many more!! The Kedron Valley Inn (only 3 mi. from the cabin) has Beer and Burger night on Sundays! Enjoy dinner outdoors on their spacious porch or inside the Inn.

Taftsville Covered Bridge is due to reopen by end August. It’s been closed since “Irene” and it will be a great relief to have that access to River Road re-opened!

Maple Sugaring has now ended but I recommend a visit to Sugarbush Farm (www.sugarbushfarm.com) where they have a wonderful education display and video on sugaring, a animal petting area and a wonderful cheese and maple syrup tasting room with of course a gift shop full of goodies. 

Harpoon Brewery – Windsor – don’t forget live music on Thurs. evenings. And visit Farmstead Cheese (Sustainable Farmer) next door! They are expanding into cheesemaking at this location as well.

Brownsville General Store at the base of Ascutney in addition to it’s daytime deli serves Friday night dinners – eat-in or take-out. Brown’s Tavern is also open for dinner at the Ascutney Resort nearby.
