For first-time visitors to the area and for full- and part-time residents, this edition of Favor: In and Around Woodstock, Vermont provides a snapshot of the beauty and uniqueness of places to see, things to do, and food to eat.
Visitors to my art gallery in Quechee often ask me where to get a good cup of coffee, where to go for a nice walk, where to have the best lunch, where to find interesting things to see, where to shop for local artisanal work, or where to have the most delicious dinner. I start by offering my short list of favorite places in and around Woodstock. The ten recommendations in our 32-page printed guide are exactly those. There are many more, to be sure; admittedly, it’s all a matter of personal taste and interest. What do these ten have in common? I’d start with: quality, consistency, passion, creativity, resourcefulness, and dedication.
