Doors of Woodstock, Vermont

This was a happy discovery. A brief walk to stretch our legs during a recent brief (and speedy!) road trip through Vermont, introduced us to the very charming town of Woodstock. 

Here are just a few of the pretty doorways we wandered past. 

Seeing double!

There was a book sale at the public library. I didn’t get to, but I was dying to look inside this building. I have a soft spot for libraries. 

But after reading the sandwhich board, we could not resist checking this shop out. (Marketing works ๐Ÿ˜‰).

And I must admit, it was (or is) quite possibly the coolest.  It certainly offers a very wide variety of quality products – everything outdoor gear and clothing to local cheese to children’s books to groceries to trendy pet accessories to beer and wine to salt & pepper shakers.  A very modern general store. 

This stone building had an open door policy. 

It was a quick stop and a fleeting visit, but I reckon we’ll be back.

    It’s been a while since I’ve been to Woodstock, but based on these gorgeous, historic doors I think I need a return trip. Those were some kind of pillars you caught there. ๐Ÿ™‚

    So this is the famous Woodstock? (.. as opposed to the Ontario Woodstock west of Toronto)
    If these doorways are any indication, it is a lovely place.

    The arched entranceway of the library is beautiful and any general store that’s been in business since 1886 is clearly doing something right ๐Ÿ™‚

      I think the famous Woodstock is on New York State. But I’m not sure. It’s interesting to look at maps from NY, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine (indeed, NS, NB, and Ontario). So many towns with the same names! All brought over, obviously, by British settlers. There are a lot of Woodstocks and a lot of Bridgewaters. And New Havens, and …

        Good grief … I didn’t realize there were that many of them!

        The same could be said for street names. It seems that almost very town and city has a Main, Church, King, Queen, etc

        Yes! That’s right. We are sadly lacking in imagination.

      Yes!! You must! After all, it’s quite possibly the coolest!

    it’s a lovely town isn’t it? Great finds ๐Ÿ™‚

      It is!! I’d love to spend more time there on another visit. The more we see, the more we want to see….

    The next time you go, get sandwiches from The Butcher Shop and take them to Faulkner Park, where you can also hike Mt Tom. It’s a relatively short walk and the houses along the way are all beautiful.

    I love the doors and windows of New England! What a fun idea ๐Ÿ™‚

    While it doesn’t have the best door, I think the store I love the most in Woodstock is “Unicorn” where I always find gifts that are just pure whimsy magic and there is always something for everyone!

      I’ll look for it next time. I’ll definitely plan to spend more time going through doors – not just looking at them – the next time I visit Woodstock. Thanks for the tip!
