“I always take them”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

A must stop with visiters or when visiting the area. Adults and kids alike. Eat at the restaurant and request a table looking over the falls. Young and old alike will love watching glass being blown. If you are heading west go left from the parking lot and follow thru Quechee Club and take a ride thru the Tannersville Covered Bridge and back on 4.

“Great diversion”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

While visiting some friends recently in Stowe Vermont we took a day trip to visit the Simon Pearce Mill. Excellent restaurant, terrific glass blowing demonstration area and really good gift shop. High quality and high prices, but worth it.

“Beautiful Work & Setting!”
Reviewed 21 October 2013 via mobile

An amazing destination - gorgeous scenery (covered bridge and waterfall) and beautiful glass and pottery. Simon Pearce is a lovely mill restoration - that subtle elegance that you feel when there is a perfect balance between raw industrial architecture and the softness of handmade art. It is a treat to see the master glass blowers in action, and they are super friendly, willing to answer questions. I already loved Simon Pearce's stunning products, but it is a treat to see the heart and time that goes into each piece. Make sure you make a reservation for a meal in the restaurant above, which hangs out over the waterfall, so you can have an INCREDIBLE meal served with all of the glass and pottery work that has made Simon Pearce a household name!

“Beautiful!!”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

We were visiting Quechee and had to stop into Simon Pearce's retail store. They sell amazingly beautiful (and expensive) glass items--cake plates, wine glasses, knick knacks. Downstairs, you can watch the artisans at work in the glass blowing studio. There is also a beautiful view of the falls and a picture timeline of the damage Hurricane Irene did to the area. A great stop!!

“Beautiful glassware”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

We visited the Simon Pearce Mill for dinner, and shopping in their beautiful store was part of the experience! Yes, it is expensive, but I couldn't think of a more elegant keepsake for my time in Vermont. I purchased a Vermont fir tree, which comes in various sizes. Overseas travellers, take heart - our purchases were wrapped so well that they all survived the trip back to Australia. Don't forget to view the glass blowers at work, and consider lunch or dinner at their magnificent restaurant.
