Enjoy the colors of the Vermont countryside on this two-night fall getaway to the Burlington area of Vermont. 

 

DAY 1 - We’ll stop at the quaint New England Village of Hanover, NH, for lunch and shopping (on your own), then visit Cold Hollow Cider Mill, New England’s largest producer of Apple Cider.  Cold Hollow Cider is a favorite stop for cheddar cheese, pure Vermont Maple Syrup, unique gift items, and a bakery featuring those delicious apple cider donuts featured in Gourmet Magazine.  You’ll have time to visit the adjacent Grand View Winery and Christmas Shop.  Then, we’ll continue on to the Basin Harbor Club, located on the tranquil shores of Lake Champlain, with views of the Adirondacks that can’t be matched!  Relax in your own unique cottage that has a personality all its own, with views of Lake Champlain, the  gardens, or golf course. Our cottages are all close to the main dining room.  You’ll love the charm of this lake-side property, and its Vermont feel! Enjoy a welcome reception of wine, beer, soft drinks and “nibbles” before dinner at the Resort. (welcome reception, D)

 

DAY 2 – Enjoy the Club’s huge country breakfast buffet and then a history talk about our beautiful resort by the owners.  Our local guide will take us into Burlington, where we will board the Spirit of Ethan Allen for a 1 ½ hour narrated cruise on Lake Champlain.  Learn about the history of the lake and view some of the most spectacular scenery of both the Adirondack Mountains in NY and VT’s Green Mountains.  Enjoy time for lunch and shopping at the historic Church Street Marketplace, a pedestrian walkway filled with over 160 boutiques and restaurants. Then, we’ll visit the 3,800 acre Shelburne Farm, created in 1886 by landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted – this farm sits right on Lake Champlain, and the view from the perennial garden is breathtaking!  Learn how the farm evolved from a private estate, and take a guided tour that features historic 19th century buildings.  The tour is highlighted by a visit to the cheese-making operations in the Barn, and cheese tasting and shopping at the Visitor Center. (B, D) 

 

DAY 3 Stop at Dakin Farms, featured on the Food Channel, where you’ll find meats smoked on premises using the farm’s original 1800’s Vermont recipes, specialty food and gift items, maple syrup and more.  Then, visit the Shelburne Museum, one of the nation’s finest, most diverse and unconventional museums of art, design and Americana.  Commonly referred to as New England’s Smithsonian, the museum’s collection of over 150,000 works in the 39 exhibition buildings are easily accessible by foot or jitney.You’ll find works by Monet, Manet and Degas, a prized collection of folk art,the steamship Ticonderoga, a 1950’s house, restored lighthouse, and carriage house.  Our last stop before returning to the Cape includes a wine & chocolate pairing at Shelburne Vineyards.  They have won numerous awards for their wines, and we’ll  sample four of their wines that are paired with four exquisite chocolates.
