New Restaurant Opens at Weston Playhouse!

One of the best things about summer in Southern Vermont is the top-notch theater at Weston Playhouse. Each summer, we welcome theater enthusiasts to our bed and breakfast and offer our guests tickets at a savings of 50% (with a minimum 2 night stay, see details below).

High quality theater is not something you’ll often find in a rural getaway, and we consider ourselves lucky to be just a half an hour away from a truly fantastic venue. The Weston Playhouse’s 2015 season will be a hit…but this year there’s something extra to look forward to! The Downtown Grocery is taking over the Weston Playhouse’s restaurant. The Downtown Grocery, a fine dining restaurant in Ludlow, VT, just ten minutes away from Golden Stage Inn, sources much of its food locally, showcasing the best of Vermont’s produce, cheeses, meats and libations. The new West Town Eatery, located in the Weston Playhouse, will certainly be a “must” on your Vermont vacation check list. The same seasonal, house-made ingredients will characterize the menu at West Town Eatery. There will also be light fare and desserts available after the shows during the Cabaret (A must see!).

Dinner seatings start at 5:30 pm Tuesday through Saturday, and select Sundays. All reservations can be made through the Weston Box Office by calling (802) 824-5288, or, ask your innkeepers to make a reservation for you when you book your stay!

The Weston Playhouse line up for 2015 includes Pump Boys and Dinettes, Peter and the Starcatcher, The Glass Menagerie, and Guys and Dolls at their Main Stage and Junie B. Jones, The Other Place, and The Road to Where at their Other Stage.  Guests of the inn (with a minimum 2-night stay) can purchase tickets for Main Stage performances for $25 each and for Other Stage performances for $15 each … this is a savings of approximately half!!  Be sure to check out one of their shows.  You won’t be disappointed!


Rent The Inn: Family Reunion, Business Retreat, Arts & Crafts, Elopement…

It’s not too soon to be planning a “Rent the Inn” event for this fall for a family reunion or a reunion of that group of great friends you never get to see. Or maybe this is the perfect time to sneak away for a small wedding with only your most intimate friends and family.  You don’t need to wonder what you’d do with an entire Vermont inn to yourself?  We’ve got it all figured out for you!

This “Rent the Inn” special is available every Spring (April 15 through June 30) and late Fall (November 1 through December 15). There is no minimum night stay required.

Here are a few ways of making the most of our Rent the Inn offer:

  1. Weddings (the small and informal kind)

    We’re only half-joking when we say that if your idea of a wedding includes either hiking boots or flip-flops, then we are the wedding venue for you!  Really, our grounds are spacious and rambling, and our inn is super welcoming and comfortable — just the right spot for a simple and intimate ceremony.  We can help simplify further by putting you in touch with any services you may need, like caterers, wedding cakes, photographers and wedding officiators. Of course, we’re LGBTQ-friendly.  (We take this for granted, but realize that maybe we should state it for clarity.)  Overall, we find things to be pretty stress-free around here and we’d love to share Vermont’s relaxed nature with you on your wedding day!

  2. Small Business Retreat

    Planning a casual Board of Trustees meeting or a small business retreat? Golden Stage Inn’s first floor has ample space and natural light for meetings and discussions of about 10 to 15 people. Free Wi-fi on site; modern amenities in all rooms. A two-course, homemade breakfast is included in your rate–we’ll take care of the details so you can focus on your agenda. We are also happy to make dinner reservations at a nearby restaurant for your party.

  3. Arts and Crafts Workshop

    For instructors of the arts or for crafting circles with a desire to delve deeply into their work and expand their skills. Rent our bed and breakfast for a truly unique group workshop experience. A rural Vermont setting, surrounded by lush gardens, will cut out all distractions and thoughts of “day-to-day life.” Our sitting room has ample space for classes to take place; extra space and tables available in our dining rooms. Or, try a plein-air painting group in our front yard or one of the many scenic landscapes in our area. If you and a group of crafty friends would simply like to get away for a few days of quiet knitting, we can recommend art & antique galleries and local arts classes to round out your trip. (Plus, Six Loose Ladies yarn & fabric store is walking distance from our Inn!)

  4. Family Reunion

    Last, but certainly not least, gather your family together for a reunion. Maybe there’s a special occasion in your life–an anniversary, a birth, a graduation… Even Vermonters can make the most of this offer with a stay-cation, or by renting rooms at our bed and breakfast for out-of-state family members. And, of course, we won’t limit this to just family! Get a group of friends together for a spring road trip or mini college or high school reunion. Fridge space is available for storing food and drinks. We are a BYOB Inn, but we do have wine glasses and bottle openers available for your use. Enjoy our in-ground pool, one of the many hikes in the area, or shopping and dining in the quaint nearby towns.

No matter what your gathering’s purpose is, you’ll leave Golden Stage Inn feeling relaxed and renewed…and looking forward to the next visit!

End-of-season ski deals in Vermont

Family going to OkemoWe’ve made it through the deep cold of February. Snowfall was impressive, with 45 inches of snow reported in some areas of VT! March is the time to take advantage of all that fresh snow by skiing Okemo and staying at Golden Stage Inn. March offers spectacular end-of-season ski deals in Southern Vermont…

At Golden Stage Inn, we’re still offering discounted room reservations.

Stay at our bed and breakfast for two nights or more and receive 10% off your bill on weekends and 20% off during the week. (That’s over $100 savings on midweek!)  Your reservation includes a two-course homemade breakfast each morning, endless coffee, tea and cookies, and hot soup upon your return from a long day of skiing Okemo! These end-of-ski-season deals also mean you can try out our newly renovated rooms, Otis’ and Cornelia’s, at a lower price.

Golden Stage Inn’s discounted Okemo ski vouchers have sold out–but never fear! Okemo is offering plenty of spring skiing deals for lift tickets.

There is a Spring Lift & Lunch Special offered Tuesday through Thursday. Skiers can also save on end-of-season skiing by purchasing tickets in advance online: Adult 2-day tickets are $119 and 3-day tickets are $159. On March 29th, bring 5 non-perishable food items to donate and your lift ticket is $39. One of the best deals is the Spring Siesta Card. Starting March 20, you can purchase a pass for $99 that lets you gets you unlimited skiing for the rest of the season! Even if you can only make it up for 2 days, that’s a huge discount.

Please see Okemo’s Special Lift Ticket Deals to see full details, which may be subject to change.

So what’s the deal with the orange bubble?!

Okemo installed a new lift this year. The lift has an orange bubble that can be pulled down to shield riders from the wind. And if that wasn’t enough to escape the cold, the lift seats are also heated! If there was one way to make February’s subzero temperatures more bearable, that would be it. Oh…plus the hot soup and cider back at Golden Stage Inn!

Check out Okemo’s live webcams if you’re thinking about visiting Vermont for an end-of-season ski trip. Spring is within sight, and there’s only so much time left to hit the slopes!
