Manchester VT Sweater Weather (With a Crazy Story)

6:46 AM

How cute is this sweater, I love the collar it is so different from anything I have in my closet. And lets talk about these shoes how cute?! These ones that I am wearing are from Old Navy and are all sold out but I linked three others pairs that are almost identical to the ones I am wearing.

This past weekend I took a girls trip out to Manchester Vermont for the weekend and it was definitely an adventure to say the least. Manchester Vermont is a gorgeous place and if you have never been you HAVE to go.  We had so much fun and a pretty insane story to come away from it with. 
We drove up to Vermont on Saturday morning and spent the day shopping at the outlets (posts to come soon). At the end of the day around six o'clock we went to check into our hotel room, now at this time it is really dark outside and our hotel was a few miles away from Manchester center. We arrive at our inn (IN THE DARK) and there was only one car in the parking lot, which is never a good sign for any place. So we walk in to check in and the door to the lobby is locked with a sign on the door that says "Please call we are here" and a phone number was underneath. I called the number and a man answered and eventually came and unlocked the door. We told him that we had a reservation and he couldn't find our name, but I had an email confirming the reservation. This is where things start to get weird, he just hands us a key and tells us we can pay in the morning for the room and just pay whatever Expedia says the price is. The four of us drive up to the back of the inn where he told us to go and there is no one up there meanwhile, it is pitch black out in the woods and we are alone. It was terrifying, it looked like something out of a horror movie. It gets better, as soon as we walk in the room we see bugs all throughout the room. We all start pretty much freaking out and trying to figure out what to do. We eventually came to the conclusion that we could not stay there because we would be so freaked out the whole night. So I called the Taconic hotel and got us a room there, but now we had to figure out what to do about the room we were in. We had the key and the guy told us that he was leaving for the night but he would leave the door to the front desk open. So we decided to drive down and leave a note and a key on the front desk saying that one of us was sick and we could not stay. As my mom goes to walk in the door to the lobby she hears a dog growl and gets so scared she slams the door shut and plans on leaving the note in the doorway. A couple seconds later the man walks out from the back and takes the key back. Meanwhile, I am in the car trying to give the Taconic hotel my credit card number as my mom and Kaitlin come running back to the car as fast as they can. At this point, all four of us are extremely scared and freaked out. 
We arrive at the Taconic hotel and it is like night and day. This hotel was amazing, everyone that worked there was so inviting and willing to help us with anything we needed. I'm going to do a whole post on this and a travel guide coming really soon. But I cannot say enough good things about this hotel it was gorgeous!
To make things even better my mother's debit card stopped working halfway through the trip and we could not get it to unlock because we were out of town and it was nighttime. Thankfully we did eventually get it to work and everything worked out well.
It was definitely a weekend to remember and we had so much fun. Make sure to keep an eye out for a travel guide post coming soon this week!
