Would love feedback on our itinerary. Too much? Too little?

My husband and I are traveling to Vermont for Memorial Day from Boston. We'll be staying near Peacham. Here's our plan, we'd love feedback -- is there anything we're missing? Are we being too ambitious?:

Day 1: Drive from Boston through the White Mountains

Day 2: Morning farmer's market in St. Johnsbury; drive to Stowe for lunch; drive to Montpelier for a walk around; drive back to Peacham (according to Google Maps, this loop is very doable)

Day 3: Explore the lakes and nature region around Peacham. Take some dirt roads. Dinner at Elements.

Day 4: Drive back to Boston, stopping for lunch in Woodstock.

PS We have a trip to Burlington planned for October, so we're not including that on this trip.

Thoughts? Feedback? Suggestions? Thank you!!

Sounds very doable. While you're in Stowe, a couple of nice things to do are:

Drive up 108 thru Smugglers' Notch. Lots of pretty cliffs, and just ~1/2 mile past the top there's a nice roadside waterfall.

Check out the rec path (starts right in town) - great for walking, skating or biking.

While staying in Peacham I have an off beat but really yummy thing for you to do. Have breakfast or deasert at the P & H Truck Stop in Wells River,VT. It is only about a 20 minute drive from the store in Peacham. Sounds strange but they really know how to do breakfast, try the homemade breads. Then you have not enjoyed a piece of pie in your life until you have P & H's Maple Cream pie.

This sounds like a really grreat itinerary.

On Day #1, consider having dinner at The Creamery in Danville. It's a fantastic little place. Eat downstairs in the bar. More casual. Less expensive. Just as tasty.

How are you driving through the White Mountains- rt 16 thru Conway or just going up 93. If the latter stop in N Woodstock, NH at Woodstock Inn for lunch and then go over to the Flume Gorge to see a little of this area. http://www.woodstockinnnh.com/

Morning Teaism,

Agree it's a great itinerary. 5 miles west of Woodstock village on route 4 consider LongTrail Brewery for a simple lunch at the brewery and a quick pint. Or Simon Pearce in Quechee (11 minutes east on route 4) does a wonderful lunch set in an old mill next to waterfall and covered bridge. (www.simonpearce.com)

How did your trip go? We are going to New England in October and will be in Vermont/NH area for 3 days so if it was successful we might steal your itinerary! I will be excited to hear from you! Also, where did you stay? I'm looking for lodging.
