Foliage season is still underway here in Southern Vermont, and what better way to celebrate than with the weird but fun Gilfeather Turnip Festival in nearby Wardsboro, VT. The festival honors the unusually large and lumpy looking Gilfeather Turnip, a local delicacy that’s surprisingly delicious. Even if you don’t like turnips (and you might like these) you’re bound to enjoy the local color and homespun charm of this agricultural tradition, now in it’s 16th year! Stay at the Gray Ghost Inn, your hub for autumn leaf peeping, early Christmas shopping, and yes, Gilfeather Turnip tasting (although you’ll have to go to the festival to get your fill).
Summer is a great time to visit southern Vermont — the air is warm, the hills are green, and the atmosphere is conducive to serious relaxing. Here at the Gray Ghost Inn, we’re ready and waiting to make sure you have a wonderful stay. Ride bucolic Vermont back roads, browse antiques shops and open air markets, and enjoy some of the best food in New England at the many great restaurants in the area.
There’s plenty to do here in July but one of the area’s annual highlights is the Blueberry Bash from July 27 through August 5. Come and sample fabulous blueberry pies and other goodies, or enjoy beer and barbecue (blueberry-themed) at Mount Snow.
Visit Vermont as the magical summer season kicks off this Memorial Day weekend, May 25-27, 2018.
