This issue marks the one year anniversary of our newsletter. By far the most popular segment of the newsletter, has been Isham's Corner (plll...ease don't tell him!) with the recipe section a close second.  We hope that we can continue to make you laugh, while providing you with a little bit of Vermont. We would like to thank all of you for your encouragement and support.

Hi Again Everyone

Last month, after some humiliating begging, I was successful in getting permission to publish a recipe for dogs instead of people. I received many thanks and letters of congratulations from my multi-legged friends. That got me thinking. Many times I've heard the innkeepers (my bosses) talk about letters they've received from prior guests, as well as comments in the guest book; full of praises, appreciation and gratitude. I wondered why I hadn't, before now, received any myself, especially since I work as hard as they do to make everyone happy.

So I began sniffing around the house (something I'm especially well equipped to do). Lo and behold, hidden behind a book on cats, where I wouldn't be expected to look, I found a large cache of letters all addressed to me.

While modesty precludes my listing all of them, pride propels me to share at least one of them with you.

Dear Isham and Gizmo,

" I can't tell you the last time that I have made such instant friends. I usually have to go through the whole alpha thing, but you guys were just cool without the whole routine . I was really touched by the way you treated me like a guest too! I'll never forget how Isham wouldn't eat the bone my Dad gave him until I got one too. (Score for me). Anyway, thank you for being my friend.


Worf the Dog.

The time may be right for my agent to begin negotiations for a significant pay raise.

Till next month.
So long Leeba wherever you are.

Love Isham

Foliage is fast approaching, and so we have mapped out just one of the suggested Vermont Foliage Driving Tours. Plan a day in awe and make sure you bring plenty of film for your camera.

Suggestions for fall foliage road tours in the Champlain Lowlands and Northern Green Mountains.

This would be a great fall foliage day trip. It's very diverse with mountains, rivers, rolling farmland, islands, beautiful villages, covered bridges and places to shop and/or have lunch.
Your trip starts by taking a right out of our driveway and going to the end of Buck Hollow Road.  Turn right onto the South Road,  following the South Road  (with one stop sign) for about 11 miles where the road ends at Route 15 just East of  the tiny village of Cambridge.
Turn left onto Route 15 and proceed about 4 miles to Jeffersonville where you will then turn left ( north) on to  route 108 which you will take to   Enosburg Falls.
In Enosburg Falls Route 108 meets route 105. Take 105 west past the junctions of 105 & 236 and 105 & 110 to the junction of 105 & 78. Proceed onto route 78. This will take you through the village of Swanton and into the Champlain Islands. Drive down through the Island on Route 2.
This will bring you all the way through the islands. You will pass through the towns and villages of: Alburg, Grand Isle and South Hero and eventually you will be brought back onto the mainland where you'll meet route 7.  Turn left (North) onto route 7 and continue to route 104-A in Georgia.  Turn right onto 104-A and take it to the end (approx 4 miles) where it ends at 104. 
Turn right onto 104 and proceed .8 mile to Buck Hollow Road just past the Mobil station.  Turn left onto Buck Hollow Road and proceed 6.1 miles back to the inn.
