Recent Review: Room 3

It's February! Yesterday was warm & windy but the temperature is much more February today. Enjoy your first weekend of the month. We are gearing up for a full few days with our wonderful guests. Here's a recent review from one of our past guests. 
Always am a bit hesitant to head to B&B's as I feel they can be on the musty side and so on. This place was a winner though. Completely renovated in 2010 it has beautiful pine floors, good wifi/TV, etc, excellent bathroom with heated floors and a bed that was so good, we slept through breakfast. Well sized, immaculate with modern/cheerful rooms. Very quiet as well & with helpful staff. Located in the pretty locale of Windsor and near 89/91 so easy on/off. Close to Quechee/Woodstock areas. Head to Simon Pearce for a great dinner by the water.
Room Tip: We stayed in Room 3. Up one floor. Faces street and parking but was still very quiet with lots of light.

It was an exciting weekend at the Snapdragonn Inn with two engagements on Saturday! Luckily, we had fresh snow and a nice weather to aid in the proposal plans. One couple headed just down the road to Path of Life Garden, rented snow shoes, and he popped the question in a secluded area of this beautiful private sculpture garden along the river. Good thinking!

Our other couple spent the day at Okemo to enjoy the slopes and ended the day at Simon Pearce for a romantic dinner where he did the asking. We were thrilled to be even a small part of these engagements. This makes us 4 for 4!

Give the gift of Beach: A doctor/storyteller

The Snapdragon Inn


Photo care of 250 Project


Earlier this year we had the opportunity of being  Dr. Beach Conger's home away from home during the days he was in Windsor working at our local Mt. Ascutney Hospital. Dr. Conger has been practicing medicine for 44 years and over 30 of those years have been here in Windsor. He is a staple to this community. When you walk down the row of doctors' offices at the hospital there is a sign that says, "This way to the Beach".

Earlier this fall, he published his third book, "It's Probably Nothing: More Adventures of a Vermont Doctor" (published locally by Chelsea Green Publishing in White Rive Jct., VT) and VPR ran a great story several weeks back about his newest work. You can also watch an excellent interview with Dr. Conger here. He is a doctor but he is also a storyteller and the two have meshed beautifully in his writings.

It's Probably Nothing continues the tale woven by Dr. Beach Conger in his first book, Bag Balm and Duct Tape. This new collection sees Conger and his wife yearning for new challenges and relocating to the suburbs of Philadelphia after 25 years in mythical Dumster, Vermont. Conger gamely takes a job in a teaching hospital in the poorest part of the city and gets to experience urban bureaucratized medicine and its trials- a far cry from the more idiosyncratic and hands-on version he practiced in Vermont. After 5 years Conger and his wife move back to Dumster, where he rediscovers more about his patients' capacity to both cope and cherish one another than he expected.Each of the tightly constructed chapters is centered around a particular patient or particular theme in medicine. It's Probably Nothing is both funny and poignant, and showcases both Conger's irreverent view into medicine and his profound empathy for the characters he encounters along the way. His experience highlights how medicine-and problems with out current medical system-can remain the same and yet be vastly different across class, race, and region. Among the people the reader meets are urban drag queens, small-town farmers and other heroes, Vermont celebrities, and the occasional reclusive author.



Are you still searching for Christmas gifts? One of Dr. Conger's books would be perfect.

Penny & Cloris looking lovely for the opening gala at Juniper Hill


The innkeepers of our neighboring Juniper Hill Inn are good friends with academy award winning actress, Cloris Leachman and she was visiting for the opening gala of their New England Living Show House in which they have had a host of designers take part in transforming rooms in their gorgeous gilded age mansion up on the hill.

Cloris, her son, and friend stayed with us while the festivities were on and the inn was occupied with visitors & designers. She told stories, played the piano, and entertained us all weekend long! What a way to start the summer!

Also, here is a news broadcast about the Juniper Hill Inn Show House. If you would like to walk through this historic building and see the designs, it is open everyday until June 6th and then 3 days a week until Labor day. Check out the website for exact days and times.

Yay! A full parking lot.

One of the unexpected exciting moments for us during the wedding weekend was seeing the parking lot full of cars. I think we could get used to this. We've had several comments from community members expressing the same sentiment and we thank all of them for their support and excitement.
"The Inn looked just lovely this past weekend with all of the
activity. It was magical to see the house all lit up from the outside"
