Ok, so I haven’t posted here in a while, I feel like if my posts are forced they are not as real and more Just to have something up. But, this weekend we took a trip to our fav get away spot in VT! It was absolutely amazing!
We decided we needed some relaxation time before things become hectic, so whats more relaxing than a cottage in VT?! My husband found the cottage on Air BnB, it was affordable, spacious, secluded and let us bring our dog, Drake! While we were there we weren’t looking to do much but relax, get a change of scenery, and eat!
We checked out Hidden Springs Maple Syrup, which was so delicious! They had samples around the store of all local syrup makers and the smell when you walked in could’ve made anyone’s mouth water instantly! We got a bottle of our favorite kind to go and a “nip” of flavored syrup to try at home! I definitely recommend stoping by and checking out their syrup if you’re ever in the area!
We also went to Whetstone Brewery which was recommended by my dad, who KNOWS delicious food, so when a place is recommended by him, we GO! This place did not disappoint! We ordered the Steak Tips as an app and they were out of this world! The meat was juicy, flavorful, and literally you could cut it with a spoon (even Lina loved it!) for our meals, I got the salad with more steak tips (they were that good), Elliot got a huge burger with their homemade chips, which were also amazing, and Lina got the Mac and cheese which she devoured entirely!! Elliot also got one, or three, of their home brewed beer and wouldn’t stop raving about it!! To finish off the meal we all split the Irish cream (flavored) cheese cake and I ordered a cappuccino! I don’t think we could say enough good things about this place!! Did I mention that was all for lunch?!
The delicious steak tips!
The house didn’t have a TV which at first I was not excited about because let’s be real, Lina loves her Mickey Mouse! But they did have wifi and she was able to watch it on the iPad if she was getting sleepy, but she hardly wanted too! We had the radio going the whole time and we had so much fun dancing, playing board games, and Lina must have colored 75 pictures over the course of the 4 days!! Since there was about 6 inches of snow on the ground, Drake had such a great time running around the acres of land we had to ourselves!
While vacations to the beaches and resorts are great, our family loves to take these little intimate trips to rural, quiet places to reconnect and just vibe with each other! It’s amazing the amount of fun you can have in a cabin with no tv!
