Vermont GetawayPosted on: February 25th, 2011 by Patti Eddington
Sarah & Dan visited the Eddington House Inn in 2007 to celebrate their first anniversary and have been trying to return ever since. Like many young couples, things have been busy for Dan & Sarah. They have purchased their first home and added a family member…a new dog. Sarah has returned to school to study business and Dan is busy juggling three jobs; teaching piano from his home, building web sites and working with his Dad.
Dan’s dad is sculptor Robert Shure who has his own ties with Bennington. Mr. Shure sculpted the statue of Revolutionary War General John Stark which can be seen on the grounds of the Bennington Battle Monument. General Stark and his men, with some help from Seth Warner’s Vermont militia, the Green Mountain Boys, routed the Hessian forces there and prevented British General John Burgoyne from resupplying. Stark’s action contributed directly to the surrender of Burgoyne’s northern army at the Battle of Saratoga some months later. This battle is seen as the turning point in the Revolutionary War.
I was happy to see Dan & Sarah…they are a delightful couple. They returned to celebrate Valentine’s Day here in Southern Vermont by taking advantage of our Romance Package.
Have a great Spring Dan & Sarah….hope to see you again soon!
