$2 million to Improvements
|WOODSTOCK, VT, May 2004 -- An estimated $1.7 million is being lavished
on lodging accommodations in the greater Woodstock, VT, region in preparation
for the upcoming warm-weather season that extends traditionally from mid
May to end October, reports says Dave Murison, Executive Director of the
Woodstock Chamber of Commerce (www.WoodstockVT.com).
"The appeal of Woodstock and environs continues to be world-class scenery and our well-preserved village; but we're not resting on our laurels, we're planting, painting and buffing them," Murison says.
Look for, among others, all members of the Association of Woodstock Area Inns and Bed & Breakfasts:
The town is bracketed by such concerns as internationally renowned furniture maker Charles Shackleton who, with his wife, the potter Miranda Thomas, are housed in the historic Bridgewater Mill, and by Simon Pearce in nearby Queeche, where glass blowing amuses visitors in another historic brick mill edifice. Up the hill in South Woodstock is Star Hill Dairy that produces the only buffalo mozzarella outside of Italy, and the Green Mountain Horse Assn. that hosts world-class equine events in the summer months.
Woodstock, 10 miles off of I89 on Vermont Rt. 4, is designated one North America’s prettiest towns thanks, in part, to an aesthetic sensibility that years ago sent power and telephone lines underground and to a civic pride that cherishes its historic buildings and nearly 250-year history.
