Mountain rivers...the ambiance of the Three Stallion Inn
Lively water, mountain and meadow scenery, rapids and pools.
I travel for travel's sake..." wrote Robert Louis Stevenson in 1878. Many of us feel that way about paddling the White River, one of Vermont's favorite canoeing streams. The White provides two exhilarating days outdoors that are hard to match.It's a clean, bouldery and handsome stream, alternately broad and narrow, in a picturesque unspoiled valley. The White is one of the most beloved canoe runs in all of New England; white as its name in the spring, varied, lively and sweet in the summer, and spectacular in the fall colors, and always with sparkling clear water. We gather at the Three Stallion Inn, a Vermont country inn situated on 1200 acres of the Green Mountain Stock Farm. We immediately begin to unwind as innkeepers, and their staff greet us warmly. Three Stallion is a perfect retreat, off the road and isolated with lawns, high meadows, and flower gardens. The swimming pool, sauna and hot tubs encourage us to enjoy our days to the utmost, with the promise that our spirits will be soothed in the evening. The first morning we're off to the Winooski, a name given by the Abenaki Indians that means wild onion". The river threads its way through meadowlands offering distant mountain views, including profiles of Camel's Hump and Mount Mansfield, the tallest mountain in Vermont.
We'll also run some mild rapids, and see lots of birds, including an occasional seagull or cormorant, visitors from Lake Champlain. Our day will be filled with quiet scenery, secluded swimming holes and warm sunny sandbars inviting us for lunch and relaxing. A great first day!Saturday night at Three Stallion will be a treat...good company, good food and good atmosphere begin to prepare us for Sunday on the main stem of the White River in central Vermont. We'll have lots of choices for put-ins and take-outs, depending on whether we're in the mood for rapids, quiet pools, or both. We'll find mountains, boulders, gravel bars, riffles, rapids, quiet pools, ledges and more ledges with water so clear you can see fish 15 feet below.
