Nest — Summer 2019 

  • Emily French | Kirsten Cheney

After a chilly, wet spring, we are craving sun-drenched days. And we're going to spend some of them doing our part for the climate, one eco-friendly lawn at a time. Summer is also a sweet time for agritourism at the aromatherapeutic Lavender Essentials farm in Derby. Speaking of visits, for this issue we took a home tour of a lovely hand-built timber-frame house in Lincoln. We also chatted up a real estate attorney to ask what the heck he actually does; and talked purging, packing and new-home styling with the owners of Richmond-based Moov. Whew, it must be hammock time.

From pampered getaways to spectacular outdoor destinations to go-to walking trails, here are the choice spots that helped locals manage a year-plus at home.

  • Pandemic Pick: At What Restaurant Did You Find the Best Outdoor Eating Experience?

    With outdoor dining, it's all about the views. Waterworks Food + Drink serves up a so-close-you-almost-need-a-rain-poncho view of the Winooski River from its plant-filled patio. "It's just beautiful there!" said one diner. For the past year, the restaurant experience was all about safety, too.
