During a recent trip to Vermont, my husband and I stayed at Shearer Hill Farm B&B for the annual maple sugaring, where owners, Patti + Bill, tap the nearby maple trees to source the maple syrup they then sell. More on that here - http://bit.ly/15lPPFH - we highly recommend!
We had told Patti ahead of time that we follow a vegan diet, and we were pleasantly surprised by her willingness to accommodate our request. She prepared a delicious meal that was ready for us when we woke up. She served us whole-grain oatmeal with yummy toppings (raisins or dates, coconut, and walnuts), her famous baked apple, rye toast, homemade jam, fresh OJ and piping hot coffee. We went outside for our day of maple sugaring feeling totally satiated!
For vegan and vegetarian travelers, Patti is also very familiar with the area. She can direct you to local farms and restaurants with plentiful dining options, the Brattleborofood co-op, the Brattleboro Farmer's Market, featuring vendors with agricultural products, crafts, live music and ethnic foods, and other fun destinations in the area. Give her a heads up and she will have a hearty breakfast waiting for you to enjoy during your stay, no matter what your dietary preferences may be!
Patti and Bill couldn't be sweeter. They'll make you feel right at home. We always love visiting this charming B&B in beautiful southern Vermont.
