Peru / Weston Day Trip Itinerary 

"When I travel to Vermont, I like to absorb everything… the different flavors, New England traditions,

and the stunning Vermont landscapes." 

(Consider combining with your visit to Manchester, Vermont)

The J.J. Hapgood General Store & Eatery: Peru, VT. 802.824.4800. The longest continuously-running general store in the state was famously featured in the 1987 film Baby Boom, staring Diane Keaton and Sam Shepard. A classic Vermont general store that should be on everyone’s checklist, and 15 minutes from Manchester.

Weston, Vermont: Just a half-hour drive up scenic Routes 30/11 to Route 100 from Manchester and slightly over an hour from the inn. Weston is a quaint New England village and home to the original Vermont Country Store. Weston should not be missed.

Vermont Country Store: Weston, VT. 800.547.7849. Of mail order fame, the Vermont Country Store features an eclectic collection of old-timey products, local cheeses, classic toys and gifts. Lunch is available at the historic Bryant House, just next door. Truly a kick to visit! (It’s an easier drive from Manchester)

Drury House Antiques: Weston, VT. 802.824.4395. Showcased in a 19th century historic homestead – they are independent dealers of period and fine antiques and specialize and sell only certified authentic restored antique clocks.

Weston Playhouse Theatre Company: Weston, VT. 802.824.5288. Vermont’s oldest professional theatre offers exceptional theatre performances between June and September.

Honeypie, “the classic hamburger joint”: Jamaica, VT. 802.548.4999. It’s definitely out of the way, but well worth the trip! Great fast food; quality ingredients, locally sourced, sustainable and they grind their own burger meat daily – you can actually taste the difference! Always order the double-cheese burger and chocolate milkshake! It’s the best cheeseburger and milkshake you’ll ever have!
