It is better to see something once

October 13, 2014

than hear about it a thousand times...

Since approaching the thousand mark of hearing about Maine and the New England States, we decided its time to plan a trip, witness the fall foliage and all its brilliant colors which encompass the mountains surrounding you. Considering new experiences, with vineyards and B & B's a part of the program, I started reserving housing.

After a 9 hour drive we arrive at our first stop, Connecticut, in a small town called Bozrah, near Hartford. Though it was getting dark, we knew as soon as we arrived what a sweet place this little B & B was, with its views of vineyards and mountains a site to behold.

Our upstairs room was cozy, a spacious dwelling amidst the french country decor. Adorned with a fireplace, perfect for the cooler temperatures upon us. After returning from dinner we started a fire and shared a glass of wine to toast the beginning of our new adventure.

I awoke early the next morning eager to start the day, with the suns warmth and luster illuminating  our room. Breakfast was arranged in the sunroom, enveloped in warmth, you were drawn to the space overlooking the vineyard. Our table, set for four, awaited another couple staying at the Inn.

Breakfast, a beautiful presentation of fruits, vegetables and pastries we savored with our coffee, while awaiting the upcoming feast of eggs, sausage and the perfect fruit filled torte.

A mixture of complete comfort and pure delight reawakened my soul, feeling dreamlike to be sharing in this moment. We walked the yard toward the vineyard, which decorated the grounds in front of the vibrant colored mountains, walking past an outdoor seating area adorned by a rock wall with the perfect New England charm, so much to enliven the senses.

In a small town, immersed in nature, outside the big cities, the quaint location of this B & B and vineyard is perfect. Little traffic disturbs the sounds of nature as the birds gather amongst the feeders outside the windows.

A wonderful experience we shared at the Fitch Claremont  Vineyard and B & B, our next stop Newport Rhode Island and the Mansions of Newport.
