Join us on a journey to some of Vermont’s outstanding producers. Tours will start at the Fly Rod Shop in Stowe with the Cold Hollow Cider Mill as our first destination. Here we will receive a private overview of the operations, we will also have a private room reserved in case anyone wants to have one of their awesome breakfasts**. After we leave Cold Hollow expect to head to Lake Champlain Chocolates, Danforth Pewter and Smugglers' Notch Distillery. Afterwards we'll then head into the hills to visit Nebraska Knoll Sugar House. This is a one of a kind, rustic Sugarhouse full of stories and the sweet nectar of the sugar maple. From here we will proceed to the infamous Emily's Bridge located in the Stowe Hollow where we'll talk about the love story gone tragically wrong resulting in one of Vermont's most famous haunted landmarks. We'll then continue to the quaint lower village of Stowe where we'll swing by Laughing Moon Chocolate so everyone can get their chocolate fix. After departing from Laughing Moon we will head over to the Green Mountain Inn at which point guests are given approximately 45 minutes to explore the lower village of Stowe. From there we'll drive over to the Trapp Family Lodge for a few spectacular views before heading over to the Alchemist Brewery for a curbside pickup order if requested which will finish off the trip before we travel back to the Fly Rod Shop.
