Golden Stage Inn is excited to join ten other Vermont inns in the inaugural “Inndulgence Tour.” On Dec 3 and 4, 2016, from noon til 5pm each day, participating inns will open their holiday decorated doors to welcome day-trippers, locals and inn guests to see inside each inn and taste a samples of what these culinary inns have to offer. The food spread will be varied, offering something for everyone. For example, The Castle just up the street from us will be offering a choice of mini Beef Wellingtons or Creme Brulee. Head further north to Andrie Rose Inn and taste Braised Pork Butt over Polenta, but maybe you should start first with a warm up course of your choice of homemade soups from Echo Lake Inn. Dessert is always a favorite here at Golden Stage Inn where we’ll be offering Michael’s signature Saturday Night Chocolate Cake. Heading down into Chester you can put on your best British accent and enjoy a High Tea at Inn Victoria (extended pinkies are optional). Baked Brie with homemade chutney is what Stone Heart Inn and Tavern is promising. And the list goes on and on!
Between trips to our bottomless cookie jar (which will surely be put to the test during this food tour!), you can poke your head into the sun room and watch us make beeswax candles using beeswax from our own hives. We’ll have our candle molds out for pouring, and we’ll also try our hand at dipping taper candles the old fashioned way. Blue Gentian Lodge is also hosting a demonstration — theirs is Scherenschnitte. Don’t know what that is? All the more reason to go! (Or at least start by researching it on our facebook page: search “inndulgence tour” on facebook and it’ll come right up.)
Some of these Vermont inns (we’re included!) will be offering on-site raffles for you to win prizes. Plus, visit a minimum of six inns over the two days and you can enter to win the big raffle — a free night at the inn of your choice!
Visitors simply need a “passport” in order to enjoy all these Vermont inn treats. Guests staying at Golden Stage Inn during the tour will receive one complimentary passport for each night they stay at the inn. Or passports can be purchased from any participating inn or from the Okemo Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce (802-228-5830).
