First stop Vermont. Snapdragon Inn.
Back in January I went to Alt Summit, a blogging conference in Salt Lake City. There I met some old classmates of Christian who went to school with in him Hawaii. I liked Michelle and Chris instantaneously. They told me about their inn that they renovated in Vermont and invited me to come and spend a weekend with them.
Do you want to know how wonderful, truly wonderful this place is? Imagine a long red eye flight with layover and three kids, one of which is a baby and will not sleep anywhere except her own crib. Staying at the Snapdragon Inn was worth all of that!
This beautiful inn is the sort of place you go to and while you are there you already start concocting a plan to come back, to bring more people with you, to figure out a way if you can move in because this is exactly the type of place you see yourself living the relaxing life you crave. The attention to detail, the warm chocolate chip cookies at night, the elegant rooms, and the subway tiled bathroom with radiant heat floors, makes it the ideal destination for a relaxing getaway.
We had a lovely time. The kids had a lovely time. And the best part was that we were able to share this experience with Christian's brother, Enoch and his wife Amy and their four kids, because everything becomes even better when there are cousins around. We also had my college friend and her family come up and spend the weekend with us. Yes, it was lovely.
Seems silly to post pictures of snow in May but for us CA residents, snow is a treat and the kids had so much fun playing in the snow.
Lucky us they have an online shop. Maple cream. Maple butter. Maple candy. Thank you maple trees!
I wonder how Vermont is in Spring.
I'm guessing it's lovely.
I can't wait to go back.
