At a Glance

Vermont’s beautiful mountains and vast farmland make the perfect classroom for aspiring chefs of any age! You and your grandchild will immerse yourselves in the cooking process from start to finish as you pick fresh ingredients at a local farm to create culinary masterpieces in the kitchen together. As you hop around to area farms, meet the friendly animals that live there, and learn about the inn's goats. Visit an orchard to find out about apples in the Champlain Valley. Taste some of Vermont’s specialties — like sugar-on-snow — as you learn about Vermont’s unique cuisine from small-town maple-tappers and cider-brewers. Create a special bond with your grandchild over the delicious meals you’ve created together, and top it all off with s’more gooey fun as you relax around the resort’s toasty fire pit together.
