SNAP IS ON THE MAP
After attending in January, we had a visit from from DOOCE, collaborated with A BLOG ABOUT LOVE and had visits from several other amazing creatives like Sharon, Quiana, Da, Natalie, Richie, Lisa, and The Alison Show. The Snapdragon Inn has an incredibly creative history and is the perfect gathering place for creatives like yourself!
NOW IT'S YOUR TURN!
SO....do you have an event you've been dreaming about? Is there a sponsor you are collaborating with but need a space? Perhaps you would love to invite a group of bloggers/creatives to a unique event hosted by yourself? Maybe you just need to get away...We want to make those dreams a reality.
As a boutique, luxury inn we offer all the comforts of a large hotel with the added personalized customer service to meet your specific needs. Our rooms – five queen size, four king size – are decorated in a simple and fresh style, and are outfitted for comfort and relaxation. Room features include our custom bedding, air conditioning, wireless internet, and HD TV, and Blu-Ray/DVD players. Bathrooms are tile and marble with radiant heat floors, and feature L’Occitane products. Don't forget the homemade chocolate chip cookies! It's our mom's recipe and it's hard to stop once you start.
You may do as much or as little as you desire during your stay. Staff will be on hand to assist in helping you get the most out of your time at the Snapdragon Inn. Paradise Park, Path of Life Gardens, Artisan's Park, dogsledding and glassblowing, and our Snapdragon Spa are just a few of the activities available. Here are a few of our favorites:
Your experience at the Snapdragon Inn is enhanced by all the best that Vermont has to offer. Vermont has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to wellness. With our local farm to table cuisine, small town pace and outdoor experiences one can’t help but unwind. We can cater in from an excellent assortment of restaurants and serve in the dining room or help make arrangements at the restaurant of your choice.
Breakfast includes items such as stone ground local breads baked in a wood fired oven, fresh fruit, granola, farm fresh eggs, fresh waffles and Vermont Greek yogurt. Tea and Coffee are available 24/7 and warm chocolate chip cookies are served nightly.
Word on the street
One of our guests said she was really nervous when she walked in the door for the event because she had never done anything like this. I told her I was nervous to meet everyone, too. But, we did it. We showed up. We were bravely vulnerable. We talked about life and love and happiness. And it led to uplifting conversations and connections that we never would have had otherwise. I feel inspired. I feel grateful for people out there willing to connect and gather together.
Sharon of NYC Taught Me, came up on the train for a weekend by herself. Read her blog post HERE and make sure to scroll down for her fiction story.
I brought 3 notebooks and told everyone I was going on a writer's retreat. I did write a little. I filled about 15 pages in one notebook. But mostly I watched every episode of Between Two Ferns on my phone, walked in the woods until I was scared of bears, and bought a few postcards from an antique store downtown. I didn't want to leave. It was the perfect mix of work and play.
The Amtrak stops daily here in Windsor, VT, just moments from the Snapdragon Inn. THIS is a great post about Mara & Danny's trip on the train. We are located 5 miles off Interstate 91, a 4.5 hour drive from NYC and 2 hours from Boston. Our closest airport is 20 minutes away in Lebanon, New Hampshire Manchester, NH or Boston, MA are other great options.
Now that you see what we can offer, it's your turn to dream big. Perhaps you have sponsors you'd like to work with or you'd actually prefer to invite a group of people to join you for a private event hosted by yourself. There are no limits because we are up for anything! Find us at Alt because we also have some delicious maple candy we'd like to share with you. We'll have our calendars and can't wait to chat.
