Southern Vermont Dining
While some may think Vermont is all about maple syrup, there is so much more to the story. Vermont leads the nation in the local food movement, relying faithfully on local farms and small businesses to keep its independent ‘food chain’ vibrant and strong. Our area restaurants are strikingly diverse in their offerings, perfect for lunches and dinners when you stay at our bed and breakfast. Distances and times shown are “from the inn” measures.
