Bromely Ski Resort to Open an Aerial Adventure Park Near Inn Victoria, a Chester Vermont Bed and Breakfast

Inn Victoria, Romantic Vermont Bed and Breakfast, congratulates a local partner; Vermont's biggest outdoor adventure park with its newest event to open in early July....The Aerial Adventure Park at Bromely.

Here is what our friends at Bromely are saying about the Aerial Adventure Park: "Challenge yourself to new heights, literally!  Combining elements of a zip line, canopy tour and challenge course, this will be the latest aerial adventure park in Vermont.  As you work your way through the canopy, from platform to platform and tree to tree, over bridges of rope, wood and wire, you’ll be safe in your harness, exploring a whole new side of Bromley with a squirrel’s eye view.  We’ll have courses for all skill and age levels!
The Aerial Adventure Park will offer family fun for ages 7 and up.
This is what we're planning...5 different course levels, in the trees!  Each course has zip lines but primarily consist of “bridges” between tree platforms made of rope, cable and wood configurations creating countless unique challenges.  We'll provide a harness and safety equipment, as well as training that will enable you to climb & zip around the park!  Trained Adventure Park staff members monitor the Park and are there to assist if needed.  (These pictures are examples from other parks our designers have built!)
You'll build skills, get exercise, enjoy nature...it's going to be great!"

Here is a view of Bromely's Sun Mountain Flyer......go for it!....opens May 26.

VTICA Grand Opening in Chester, Vermont

The Vermont Institute of Contemporary Arts is celebrating with a Grand Opening on May 5, 2012.  Inn Victoria, a Romantic Vermont Bed and Breakfast,  salutes VTICA and Jeanne Carbonetti in their partnership in the Grand Opening; "The Power of Beauty:  Introducing the Paradise Suite"...the Watercolors of Jeanne Carbonetti.  Jeanne has her gallery at Crow Hill here in Chester, Vermont. 

According to Abby Reader, Executive Director;  "The VTICA anchor facility is located at 15 Depot Street, Chester, VT. It comprises a Central Revolving Exhibit Gallery of approximately 2000 square feet, plus a Permanent Collection Hearth Barn of approximately 650 square feet, and offices and Artist Workshop Teaching Studios of approximately 1200 square feet.
The Town of Chester lies at the center of a large and diffuse community of outstanding artists, some indigenous and some imported from art communities elsewhere. Rich and insightful creativity percolates up through the Green Mountain soil not only in traditional forms of foliage, village churches and covered bridges, but also in the indescribable, mind-blowing, out-of-body interpretive creations, by young and old artists alike, practicing age-old – and cutting edge – techniques that challenge us to awaken and to respond to a deeper calling. Art is calling each of us deeper."
The Vision: For a world enriched by the creation and enjoyment of contemporary art.

The Mission: Is to cultivate and nurture an appreciation for contemporary art through
education, innovation, conversation, and presentation.

Grand Opening on Saturday, May 5th, 2012 from 5:30PM to 8PM.  The Watercolors of Jeanne Carbonetti will be on display from May 5 through June 17, 2012.

Romantic Vermont Bed and Breakfast gets Top Ratings From TripAdvisor

Inn Victoria, a Romantic Vermont Bed and Breakfast consistently gets Top Ratings on Tripadvisor from guests.  Here is the latest posted yesterday from Danielle & Bryan.

My boyfriend and I received a gift card from family to BedandBreakfast.com, and we were searching for places in Vermont since we wanted to go snowboarding. As we were searching we decided that Inn Victoria was the place for us and after staying there we HAVE to say that they have far exceeded our expectations. Right from the beginning, we felt like we were visiting old friends. The entire inn was gorgeous, clean, well kept, and warm. The room we stayed in (Princess Helena) was absolutely beautiful. The pictures were beautiful so we were so excited but after staying...the pictures do NOT do justice. The room is 100X more beautiful and comfortable. I felt like I was sleeping on a cloud on the two nights we stayed there. The room was romantic since it had an antique type bathtub right near the fireplace, a shower with two seats/two shower-heads, and a private hot tub on the deck. Each morning we woke up to an amazing breakfast. Lemon curd bread, blueberry pancakes, and strawberry applesauce were just a few of the tasty things on the menu. Their menu of teas was one of my favorite parts of my stay. I love many different kinds of tea, and I had such a wide variety of new kinds to try! Penny, Dan, and Jessica were such nice people I actually felt sad when we had to leave! At least we know the next time we make our way to Vermont we have an exquisite place to stay and friends to catch up with.

If you are going to Vermont, definitely check this place out! Tell them Danielle and Bryan sent you! You will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: Any of the rooms with the Hot Tub are awesome! Princess Helena is private and in the back, so it's quiet.

St. Patrick's Day Sing-a-Long at Inn Victoria, a Bed and Breakfast Southern Vermont

St Patrick's Day Party at Inn Victoria, a Romantic Southern Vermont Bed and Breakfast in Chester will host this wonderful celebration.  If you book a room for two nights your party ticket is free!  In the words of our entertainer, Walt Sayer:

Hi Everyone, Just wanted to let you know about a wonderful event 2 weeks from today on Saturday 3/17 at the Inn Victoria in Chester VT.
There will be a high tea at 3:00 followed by my St. Patrick's Day sing-a-long. I will sing my best Irish tenor songs, play some Irish jigs, and hand out Irish song sheets.
    The high tea costs $20 per person, and is well worth it. Each person gets to pick out their own antique tea cup and saucer,and choose from many different teas to drink. There is so much in the way of sandwiches, scones, and other pastries, that Liz and I have been too full to eat dinner when we went to high tea.If you stay overnight, the high tea as well as a fantastic breakfast is included in the price of the room.                                  
    Liz and I stayed at the Inn Victoria last October to escape the hundreds of rowdy college students the night of Pumpkin Festival. We have stayed at many B and B's over the years, but this place is by far the best because of the comfortable feeling you get walking into the Victorian parlor, dining room, and guest rooms. The innkeepers, Dan and Penny Cote are the friendliest and most welcoming inn keepers we have ever encountered.

    If you decide to come to the high tea/St. Patrick's Day party, you will need to make reservations as they make all food from scratch. Please check out their website at www.InnVictoria.com or call 802-875-4288. The website has great pictures of all the rooms of this wonderful inn. Thanks, Walt
p.s. Please forward this to anyone you think might be interested.

Thanks Walt....we can't wait!
