You can get there from here! There are a number of ice cream counters that you can walk to in downtown Woodstock. Let’s start with the obvious:
Woodstock Scoops! Right on the corner of Central Street, you can get your first taste of a maple creemee and even top it with maple crumbles if you want to really feel the flavor of Vermont.
Hard Serve, Creemees, Non-Dairy Flavors
Next Up: Take a quick walk to Pleasant Street and you’ll find the funky Abracadabra Coffee Co. Known for their stellar brews, they also serve up classic creemees in the summer. Open Friday-Sunday.
Creemees, Vegan Soft-Serve
A bit of a longer stroll down Elm Street will bring you to Billings Farm & Museum. Worth the visit for the Jersey cows and beautiful gardens, you’ll also want to stop for Vermont-made ice cream at the Farmhouse Café. Taste rotating summer flavors like strawberry-rhubarb or try a famous maple sundae. Admission to Billings Farm is required for access to the Farmhouse Café.
Hit The Road
First stop on your way west on Rt 4 is the White Cottage. Infamous, classic, and a favorite spot with riverside outdoor seating since 1957. Alongside the ice cream window, they serve up your favorite summer snack bar foods like fried clams and lobster rolls. They keep it traditional, cash only, but there is an ATM onsite.
Hard Serve, Creemees, Frozen Yogurt
Continue west and you'll happen upon the Mountain Creamery. This breakfast and lunch spot is a local favorite with homegrown ingredients to boot. Seriously, we aren't sure why Guy Fieri (of Diners, Drive-In & Dives) hasn't stopped by yet! The produce and meat aren't the only things that come from their own farm, the ice cream is also homemade, and you can taste the creamy difference.
Now, we're ready to head out toward beautiful Barnard to Silver Lake Syrups. A real Vermont sugarhouse twirling maple creemees on the weekends. No daytrip to Silver Lake State Park is complete without one of these sweet treats featuring their own pure Vermont maple syrup.
