Ralph and I would like to work with you to create a custom package for your Vermont getaway in winter, spring, summer, or in the fall. Train getaways are very popular from New York City. Ice-fishermen, shoppers, skiers and snowboarders enjoy our current specialty theme packages. We are happy to customize a package for couples getaways, families and last minute travel. If one of our packages takes your fancy, or you have an interest in another theme, please give us a call. We want to make sure your package takes full advantage of the area’s resources. We do the organizing; you have more time enjoying Vermont! Check back with us to see packages and specials that are new or seasonal to Vermont.
Train Travelers Package
The Ethan Allen passenger train travels each day from Penn Station, NY to Castleton Village train depot. The journey along the Hudson Valley is spectacular! We will pick you up and drop you off! It’s less than five minutes away. (If Amtrak says there are no seats, we recommend taking an earlier train to Albany and catching the Ethan Allen in Albany.) Enterprise will pick you up at Applewood Manor B&B to rent a car at their Rutland office, or you can hook up with Kelly at Vermont Backroad Tours to explore the sites and scenery of Central Vermont. Experience the road less traveled without having to navigate and drive! To travel by train and dine in style from NYC to Castleton aboard the Epicurus, a 1950’s Pullman Dining Car, visit Rail and Cruise Travel or call Peter Calleo at (800) 292-7245.
Maple Syrup Lovers Package
Spend a lovely early March weekend (or weekdays) at our charming, historic Bed & Breakfast in Castleton, Vermont. Enjoy the first days of spring while gathering the sap from maple trees on our 33-acre property. Transport the sap to the sugarhouse and participate in the sugaring process firsthand. Learn all about the production of this delicious natural sweetener and leave with a bottle of your very own Vermont Maple Syrup!
Winter Ice-Fishing Package
Our area has lovely lakes, and one of the favorite winter pastimes is ice-fishing. We will organize an experienced guide so you will have a memorable day. If you like to fish but haven’t tried ice-fishing, it’s a lot of fun. Remember to bring your thick-soled winter boots!
Vermont Winter Getaway
Enjoy a two-night stay with full breakfast plus a $50.00 Blue Cat Bistro gift certificate for $300.00 including tax! Our early breakfast lets you get to the slopes for a great day of downhill or cross-country skiing. Or you can spend time at Applewood Manor, building snowmen, making snow angels or snowshoeing on our trails!
