Chef-owner Michael Fuller founded this exceptional, upscale little eatery in an authentic 1927 diner over 30 years ago. Ever since, he's been offering a verbal menu of four seasonally changing items, sourced largely from local farms. Locals rave that the food here is Brattleboro's best. The diner seats just 18 souls, so reserve ahead. No credit cards.

Hearthside dining at candlelit tables enhances the experience at this gracious roadside 1790s inn.

This classic 1950s-era diner serves breakfast all day and a healthy mix of American, Asian and Mexican fare, including vegetarian options.

Arts & Culture

Great place to swing by, check out the Inn from 1801 originally. The front desk is a good place to ask for local things happening as well as good advice for just about anything you're looking for. The adjoining Phelps Pub in an old bar setting is also an excellent place for a cozy dinner or drinks and often live music. Thursday nights are burger night, which is a delicious burger, fries/salad and a drink for about $15. They have a great menu regularly and some tasty cocktails. (sadly it's often closed on the weekend for events, aka mostly weddings). The Inn has a nicer restaurant for dinners onsite as well.

Very interesting former 19th century industrial town that fell on hard times and is now working hard to reinvent itself as an affordable place for artists. There are a couple galleries, cafes and some very interesting architecture, esp industrial architecture. There's a hidden riverfront trail walk that can be found if you go down the ramp by the flatiron cafe and across the RR tracks (check out the cool stone tunnel under town!) on down towards the river. Great views of the CT River, falls, and damn.

Don't miss the little history museum (if it's open) just across from the village grocer. So much history packed in there and they can tell you how to hike and find the hidden quarry on a nearby mountaintop. Also don't miss the blacksmith shop, mineral museum, and the history museum all around the village as well. (very limited hours)

Outside Manchester, the 24-room Georgian Revival mansion of Robert Todd Lincoln, son of Abraham and Mary Lincoln, is a national treasure. Lincoln family members lived here until 1975, when it was converted into a museum and filled with many of the family's personal effects and furnishings. These include the hat Abraham Lincoln probably wore when he delivered the Gettysburg Address, and remarkable brass casts of his hands, the right one swollen from shaking hands while campaigning for the presidency. The museum ticket includes access to the surrounding grounds, which are home to 8 miles of walking, skiing and snowshoeing trails, an observatory with a telescope, etc.

Vermont’s oldest professional theater, the Weston Playhouse occupies an old church on the town common and backs onto the West River. It enjoys a good reputation for musicals and drama. Before or after a show, head downstairs to the West Town Eatery, a sweet little bistro below the theater, opened in 2015 by acclaimed chefs Rogan and Abby Lechthaler.

When he moved his family to Shaftsbury (4 miles north of Bennington), poet Robert Frost was 46 years old and at the height of his career. This modest museum opens a window into the poet's life, with one entire room dedicated to his most famous work, 'Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,' which he penned here in the 1920s.

Not far away is Green Mountain National Park with several points to chose from for entry. The 45 miles of the Appalachian Trail cutting through the park at the east end of the state are lower elevation, but offer great autumn foliage and a chance to get away from the crowds. There are plenty of more challenging trails in the area as well, including the famed trail to the ghost town of Glastenbury that has many legends around it. Here's a great interactive map to help you pinpoint a hike or two on the A.T. https://appalachiantrail.org/home/explore-the-trail

Encompassing over 3200 acres of high-country meadow and forest, this sprawling farm and environmental education center is a blissful place to experience Vermont's natural beauty and agricultural heritage. The park's centerpiece is a working organic farm with animals, vegetable gardens, renewable-energy installations and a sugar house where you can watch maple syrup being produced during sugaring season. It's hidden away on a gorgeous hilltop, only 25 minutes from Manchester but a world apart from the village hustle and bustle.

Nestled in the Connecticut Valley of south western New Hampshire, Walpole is one of New England's prettiest villages. Many of its beautiful and historic buildings have been restored by its residents, so today's town looks much as it did years ago. Walpole's uniqueness comes from being a real town - not a museum like re- creation - with its citizens being its most valuable resource. It is a vibrant community, still holding the traditional Town Meeting with participation from a wonderfully diverse population of 3700 people. A close drive just across the border - as quaint as it gets to stroll around!
