“A tourist place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Lots of cheese selections and all over priced.
You would get a better selection by going to a local large supermarket.

“Cheesy goodness”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

We stopped here, as we were driving by and being huge fans of cheese, felt that we had to! We were able to sample just a few kinds, which as others have said, it would have been nice to have a few more samples, but you take what you can get. In any case, it is not a huge store, but they do have a good variety of Vermont and other cheeses. The also have a small selection of beers and wines and a more touristy shop with souvenirs off the side. It's worth a quick stop if you are in the area.

“The Cheese is delish!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013

This store is for cheese - not really a fancy gift shop. Keep that in mind. If you are looking for some very good Vermont cheese (Rat Trap, Truck Driver - great very sharp cheeses) this is the place to get them. Don't mistake this for some huge tourist shop and you won't be disappointed.

“Mmmmmm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

We are cheese lovers and have found a lot of cheese in the US lacks the depth of flavour we get at home. So, it was great to find a place that sold a wide range of artisan cheeses that are as good as any made on the other side of the Atlantic. We were so impressed we bought a small portion of a cave aged cheddar to nibble on our drive through the Green Mountains.

“Very disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

We were in the Manchester/Arlington VT area, saw a FULL PAGE ad in a tourist brochure so thought we'd check this out.
When we pulled up to the store it looked promising, part of it was in shape of a cheese wheel. Once we entered the store we were sorely disappointed. It was much smaller inside than
expected. They did have couple of samples, but nothing like we saw in a very famous Vermont general store that will remain unnamed.
Yes, they did have some gift items but to us they were not memorable or worthwhile.
If it means anything to you, they did not appear to have a public restroom.
