You can spend a lot of money at Cold Hollow Cider Mill in Waterbury, Vt., as it’s one of those places where you just want to buy everything!
So what’s this historic Vermont attraction doing on the Thrifty New England Traveler Blog? Read on…
The other side of the coin is that with a little self-discipline, you can stay on your own personal budget while being afforded, just like everyone else coming here, a one-of-a-kind, authentic cider mill experience. The cider, made from a rack and press built in the 1800s, is bursting with natural apple flavor and the cider donuts will make your mouth water. Add a fudge-making room, a winery specializing in hard cider, excellent locally-made maple syrup, a toy shop and some beautiful countryside and the Cold Hollow Cider Mills stands on its own in a travel attraction-rich region of Vermont.
Additionally, the fall foliage in this area was just deemed a “best bet” for Columbus Day Weekend 2010 by VermontVacation.com, stating, “…try Route 100 between Warren and Stowe, Route 100B in Middlesex and Moretown, Route 14 between East Randolph and Williamstown, and Route 12A between Randolph and Northfield.” It’s all within proximity to the Cold Hollow Cider Mill!
We have found that buying a gallon of apple cider and a dozen cider donuts for a reasonable price certainly makes us feel good about visiting this wonderful Vermont landmark. While we might gain a few pounds in our mid-sections, there’s very little weight loss in our wallets!
