We continue to Killington, VT, where we spend the next two nights. Dinner is included tonight. (D)

Ride in antique passenger coaches pulled by a vintage locomotive as we travel along the Connecticut and Williams Rivers between Bellows Falls and the 1872 Chester Depot. After lunch on our own in Manchester, we visit Hildene Estate and Gardens, a 24-room Georgian Revival mansion, home to the Lincoln family descendants. We travel along scenic Route 100, viewing spectacular fall foliage on our way to the Vermont Country Store, full of fascinating merchandise and New England antiques.

We continue to Woodstock, the “quintessential” New England village, to enjoy lunch on your own and free time to browse the village shops. Enroute to New Hampshire, we stop for a photo op at Quechee Gorge, “Vermont’s Little Grand Canyon.” Tonight we discover Lake Winnipesaukee by rail aboard the Winnipesaukee RR.

Our final stop will be at Fadden’s Maple and Country Store, boasting maple syrup that has won national awards. We also visit an 18th-century general store, a fifth- generation treasure.
