We went to Vermont to get World Class Beer, buy some interesting Vermont Cheese, and have a lot of time of peace and beauty. Mission Accomplished by staying at the Kimball House in Hardwick, Vermont's North East Kingdom.
Our friend booked two rooms at the Kimball House and the three of us headed north for another adventure. Our first stop was Perennial Pleasures Nursery and Tea House in East Hardwick. We spend a lovely early afternoon wandering the display gardens, and relaxing drinking tea with our delicious lunch. This garden is pure magic. We loved our return visit to Buffalo Mountain Food Coop & Cafe in Hardwick. The 70s are still alive in this coop. We headed up a big hill and at the top of it was the Kimball House. The house is beautifully restored. The wrap around deck with views was our first stop of pleasure. Our rooms were beautifully appointed and the cool mountain breezy made for a wonderful summer sleeping weather. In the morning, we met our host Sue in the kitchen preparing our breakfast. Sue was born to be a host, and inn keeper. We fell in love with her and her food. Too many bed & breakfast use fragrance to enhance the experience. Since I am highly allergic to fragrance, I was delighted to find that Sue was very careful to avoid all that nonsense. Sue also recommended a long hike in a nearby Nature Conservatory to our delight. We then drove to the main purpose of our trip, the World famous Hill Farmstead Brewery in Greensboro Bend.
The long wait in line was worth every second. We tasted the current brews and picked up a growler of Everett Beer and headed home. A wonder time was had by all in the North East Kingdom.
