Southern Vermont Getaway- Fall Foliage

Posted on: September 25th, 2011 by Patti Eddington

Bennington Vermont- It’s simply Beautiful

Leaves are changing….bright reds in the mountains and in the wetlands.  I took a ride up  through Southern Vermont orchards and the side of Mt Anthony is just beginning its patchwork quilt.  The trees are laden with beautiful red apples…my amateur photographer iphone image just can’t do it justice.   The Apple Barn is offering their wonderful cider donuts and mulled apple cider along with an array of pies and pick your own berries.

 The area is alive with places to purchase mums, bittersweet and of course pumpkins.  You must check out Armstrong’s on Route 7A just south of Bennington….pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins as well as gourds, cornstalks and their famous Vermont Maple Syrup.

Even if you can’t spend the night here in Southern Vermont…it’s worth the day trip especially this time of year.  But pack your toothbrush, you might be lucky…The Eddington House Inn offers a day of stay special (if we happen to have a last minute room vacancy) for $99 per night which includes a full breakfast.
