The building was once a water-powered mill with an
electric generator within a sluice channel which  architects saved for viewing when they remodeled the old building in the 70s.  While dining at the Glassworks you overlook a waterfall and a covered bridge and might just see a balloon lift off from the green and glide by as it follows the river.
The rolling hills and cleared fields make for such great hot air balloon country that Woodstock hosts the annual
Quechee Balloon Festival in mid June bringing live music to the green, craft shows and a host of micro-brews strutting their wares.  Vermont farm country presents few wires, no tall buildings, and lots of room to land.  Morning flights are the best but during the summer the riders will have to be ready by 6 am.
