On our most recent visit to Vermont, we hiked scenic Quechee Gorge within Quechee State Park along Route 4. This hike was an easy way to enjoy the colorful autumn foliage and get outdoors on a warmer-than-normal day. I will preface this post by saying that the hike should not be done during or after heavy rains because of the flash flood risk. No special equipment is needed for this hike as it’s on a pretty straightforward 1.3-mile path to the dam at the end of the hike. Round trip, we spent about an hour here, only because I stopped so often to take photos. It could easily be done faster, or you could dally and spend time admiring the scenery.

While we were in Woodstock, VT, staying at the Woodstock Inn & Resort, I surprised my husband with a deep tissue massage for his birthday along with a relaxing morning lounging around The Spa at Woodstock Inn & Resort for his birthday. I absolutely loved soaking in the outdoor hot tub, steaming in the eucalyptus dampfbad, luxuriating in the dry-cedar sauna, and more than anything, spending uninterrupted time relaxing with my love as we celebrated another trip around the sun for him.
This Diamond-Stitch Cloud Crew from Everlane is made of merino wool and alpaca, making it one of my recent favorite pieces from the sustainable clothing brand. I wore this when we were in Woodstock, VT, and I was super comfortable wearing this sweater, layered with a relaxed 100% linen blouse, and this beautiful dark moss-colored jacket. Paired with a lightweight, white skirt, tights, and my green-accented leather sneakers made from leather sourced from a Gold-Certified tannery, my outfit for hanging out around the Woodstock Inn & Resort was so comfortable for the beautiful autumn day.
Vermont’s most beautiful address, the Woodstock Inn & Resort, was our home away from home for a long weekend getaway to beautiful Vermont for my husband’s birthday, and we adored every single moment of our time there. The inn is such a darling, romantic, and energizing place to be, and there’s an endless stream of activities and relaxation opportunities for any type of vacation or staycation. From the award-winning spa to the activity center with Orvis endorsed fly fishing lessons, workout classes, golf course, nordic center & ski hills, there’s so much to enjoy at this wonderful retreat in the heart of the Green Mountain state.
I had an incredible Tata Harper Custom Facial at The Spa at Woodstock Inn & Resort during our time in Woodstock, VT, and it was everything the spa said it would be and more! The facial exclusively uses Tata Harper products, which are handmade in Vermont, and 100% free from GMOs, toxins, fillers, artificial colors, drying alcohols, dyes, soy, wheat, artificial fragrances, and harsh synthetic chemicals, making them some of the purest skincare products on the market.
