For your #2 request I would take a look at ctyanky's thread on Vermont Church Suppers. She mentions one in Richmond on the 7th...that's not too far from where you'll be. Sitting down to eat a chicken pie supper with locals is definitely a way of getting a look at the community.

Love the chicken pie suppers! PWT first gave me the tip several years ago for which I am eternally grateful. We are hoping to get to one again this year. So far I've found one in Waitsfield on Sept 26th at the United Church and one in Waterbury Center at the Congregational Church Oct. 1st but that's...

Thanks for the thoughts. Enjoyed Singletons when we went there a few years back while staying in Ludlow. Same year we also found a great little home bakery...Vermont Apple Pie Company or something like that? Awesome maple pecan pie! We've done Woodstock (learned the lesson the hard way about bad tra...

Thanks for the information everyone. We have rented off cyberrentals and other websites several times and have always been pleased. I think we are now leaning towards a home in Killington. It seems like that would fit in with what PWT said about Rt. 4 and since that area has so many rentals for ski ...

Actually, I'm continuing to look around and consider other areas. What about West Dover/Mt. Snow area? I've never been there. We have really enjoyed the mountainous areas of Stowe/Waterbury in previous years...any comparisons for us as far as the scenery? What about the best time for foliage that fa...

Best week for Stowe or Waterbury area?

Wondering if anyone has any predictions on whether October 2-9 or 9-16 would be better for the Stowe or Waterbury areas? We've rented a house in Waterbury the last two years that is unavailable this year, but it's unavailable this year so we're shopping around for a new place to stay this year, eith...

We're staying in Waterbury for the week right now...just up the hill from the Best Western as a matter of fact. Waterbury's color is pretty good right now, although I think it's starting to move closer to past peak...not sure what it will be like this weekend. We just visited Stowe today...did the g...

chicken pie suppers

Is there any sort of compiled list anywhere that churches and other organizations advertise their chicken pie suppers at? We managed to catch one last year, but it was pure luck.

We've done that particular ferry several times as well as the Burlington ferry. I personally love the relaxation and gorgeous views you get on the Burlington ferry (weather dependent of course) but it's just too long to chase a 3 year old around deck! At 20 minutes the Charlotte ferry is the perfect...

We need to be in Waterbury by about 6:30 so that will be perfect. I just need to try and get us all rolling in time Sunday morning because it will probably take us about 7 - 8 hours depending on how frequently we stop. (With a 3 year old we don't get to roll right through the way we used to when it ...

Sounds perfect. Thanks BM! I knew someone would have a tip for a more interesting way to go than just shooting up 7 and down 89. And it's perfect because if we time it right we might be able to stop at the Good Times Cafe in Hinesburg for dinner. I'll have to call and make sure they're open on Sunda...

Scenic route from Charlotte to Waterbury?

We'll be staying in Waterbury the week of the 5th - 12th. We're coming from NY and plan to enter Vermont in Charlotte via the Essex-Charlotte ferry.

Any suggestions for the best/most scenic route from Charlotte to Waterbury?

Although I have enjoyed reading others' descriptions, I'm afraid I probably can't be of much help. For the last several years of our Vermont vacations we have opted for renting cabins or houses rather than inns and hotels. The last time we stayed at an Inn in Vermont that I enjoyed it was the Green ...

I'm also happy to hear that is deemed a good location for that week. We are renting the same house we rented last year in Waterbury for October 5th - 12th, which is a bit earlier than we were there last year. We loved the house and agree that it is a good, central location. I'm hoping that being the...

Yes! We hit the Green Mountain Sugarhouse when we were there last year and got a maple cremee. A bit too sweet for me to eat the whole thing, but it was tasty! Thanks for the tip.
