Vermont Country Dining
Vermont is farm country. And, like each moring on the farm, everybody at the October Country Inn sits down to a generous, freshly cooked breakfast. But, if you wake up early, hot coffee, tea, or coco is ready for you to serve yourelf in the little-kitchen.
At first, start out by serving yourself.
When you’re ready to eat, serve yourself at the breakfast sideboard. You’ll find our home-made granola, yogurt, a choice of traditional cereals, and fresh fruit. The toaster is near an array of English muffins, and locally baked anadama, and cinnamon raisin breads. Orange and grapefruit juices await in the nearby little-kitchen. Freshly baked muffins are on the table.
Then, sit down to a full, Vermont style, country breakfast.
As befitting a Vermont bed and breakfast, we will serve you one of our country style breakfasts. All you have to do is sit down and look ready. One day we might serve sinfully sumptuous Cinnamon Raisin French Toast. Or, maybe we’ll serve ridiculously delicious Sour Cream Pancakes. Of course, either of these is always accompanied with an endless supply of authentic Vermont maple syrup. If we don’t serve a baked selection, it scrambled eggs with Vermont cheddar cheese. Finally, irrespective of the main event, it is always accompanied with either bacon or sausage, and fresh fruit.
Beer and wine are available.
We are licensed to serve beer and wine, so at day’s end, you can sip a glass of wine or relax on the front porch or back deck with a frosted glass of one of Vermont’s local craft beers. Or, speaking of local, we highly recommend that you visit the Longtrail Brewery yourself. It’s just across the street from the inn. Sit by the Ottaquechee River, sample one or more of Longtrail’s extensive craft brew selections, and let the essence of Vermont wash over you.
In the evening, if available, try our internationally themed dinners.
Unlike a typical Vermont bed and breakfast, we also serve dinner. Although not always available, when it is, don’t miss a chance to have dinner with us. Our dinners, besides being delicious, are really a lot of fun. You will delight in our convivial family-style atmosphere. Come casually dressed, in a good mood, and be prepared to meet an inn full of interesting people.
Our dinners are all internationally themed, and served family style. Our French country dinner, and our Italian country dinner, get consistently high marks from our guests. Our personal favorite, maybe because we’re from southern California, is our Mexican country dinner. All food is prepared and cooked by Chuck, from scratch, featuring local ingredients whenever possible. Our typical dinner includes soup, a chicken, fish or beef entree, vegetable, and rice or pasta side dishes, lightly dressed green-leaf salad, locally baked bread, dessert, and coffee or tea. We are sensitive to our guests’ dietary preferences or restrictions and do our best to offer appropriate alternatives. Beer and wine are not included, but are available.
