“What a place, it is a drive from Stowe, but if you are visiting Shelburne Farms, which you should, put this on your list. I absolutely love this little gem. Run by a French family, authentic wood fired bakery, it is a true delight. They are serving dinner, but make sure you check their schedule, they have odd hours. ”
