Perspectives of a Lady, Gentleman & Dane

Vacation Time!

Hannah Sheflyand

Brian and I are off on a family vacation to Woodstock, Vermont! I have actually never been to Vermont and am very excited to visit a new state. Brian spent many summers there with family and we will be joining his parents and his older sister and husband up in a house they rented for a week.

I am excited for a few days of quiet relaxation, and time with Brian and his family, but I am also looking forward for the long drives there and back. Its 5 hours each way and the perfect time to catch up with Brian, listen to podcasts/music and enjoy the scenic sites out the window. I also feel like it gives the perfect time to just unwind from all the stress and actually arrive at our destination relaxed and ready to enjoy the vacation.

The picture at the top of the post and this one above are of the the house we are staying at and the property surrounding it. It is the Fern Brook House located on Birch Hill Farm right outside of town.

The property is gorgeous and I hope to spend most of my free time exploring,unfortunately Charlie does not get to join us this time.

The girls are planning on a spa day at the Woodstock Inn & Spa… I cant wait for my body wrap and relaxing massage. With us being preoccupied, the boys are planning on spending the day outdoors at a shooting range.

We plan on mostly cooking at the house since it comes with a beautifully equipped large kitchen. However we did make reservations for two restaurants that offer farm to table dining experience, Simon Pearce & Cloudland Farm.

However, it is a vacation and sometimes its good to have a break from the kitchen, so we did make reservations for two restaurants that offer a farm to table dining experience, Simon Pearce & Cloudland Farm.

The rest of our time will probably consist of lounging around reading and relaxing and at the lake swimming and kayaking.

I don’t think we will have easily accessible internet access and I promised Brian I would stay away from the computer as much as possible, so I will not be updating on the blog the rest of the week. If you have some time, I hope you browse through some of our earlier posts, and I will be back at it again next Monday with a week full of posts on great choices to spend a weekend away from NYC.
