Rainy Day Fun

Sandy’s Bookstore, Bakery and Bookery

You could get lost in the incredible collection of books at Sandy’s in Rochester, but you would be well fed on her famous muffins and baked goods! A chidren’s reading room and great gift shop, too.

Green Mountain Indoor Climbing Center

Located about 45 minutes from here, just outside of Rutland. It’s a ton of fun for beginners and experts, with instruction and gear provided.

Mad river Massage

Why not indulge and treat yourself and your body?!

Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory Tours

Perhaps a bit overrated, it’s still fun to visit and a great excuse to eat ice cream at the end of the tour!

Big Town Gallery


There are always some incredibly talented and interesting artists and artwork on display in their Rochester gallery. And many weekends, Annie hosts book readings from local and sometimes internationally known authors.


Watch a movie on the cabin’s big 92″ screen!

We have over 200 DVD’s including many classics, modern favorites and new releases. We even have the entire James Bond collection, so you can relive your favorite 007 adventures!


Go to The Big Picture and watch a new release while sipping on your favorite beer, wine or cocktail. You can even have a delicious lunch or dinner there, too!


Burlington Church Street Marketplace

It’s outdoors, but lots of great shops to duck into and browse. I could easily spend two hours in my favorite ski shop (Outdoor Gear Exchange OGE)! They have the latest and greatest, but also tons of used gear at very affordable prices.


Simon Pierce Glassblowing and Restaurant

You can have fun browsing the “seconds section” or watch the glassblowers in action. You can even make some clay figures yourself, but it’s mostly for kids. Then dine in one of Vermont’s finest restaurants overlooking the Queeche Gorge!
