Vermont has many programs in place that promote and protect our agriculture and support "green" practices on many levels.
Vermont's "Fresh Network" partners local farmers and food producers with restaurants and inns in the Green...
The Great Hall is the focal point of the common rooms.
This room is all about the light. The original leaded, stained glass Palladium window is embedded with Austrian crystals. It graces the north side of the building, and the light filtering through the colored glass changes as the day wears on. It's quite magnificent. The unique three-story atrium, with a skylight atop it all, sends lovely daylight drifting into the room even on a cloudy day.
The wallpaper is a reproduction William Morris "Willow" pattern, and we've papered the ceiling as well with beneficial insects: spiders and dragon flies.
We have a table filled with books we've just read ourselves (often our own Summer reading offerings), a Victrola, a massive fireplace with comfortable seating area, and our check-in desk as well.
At Christmastime, you'll see our tree dominate the Great Hall, we send it right up through the atrium to the second floor!
Book lovers will find many of Dorothy's recent reads on the hall table.....
