No matter where you choose to celebrate, Thanksgiving is a holiday filled with emotion. This is the time of year where you begin to realize just how much you have to be thankful for, and we don’t judge you for any tears that may be shed! Unfortunately, the stresses that can accompany this wonderful holiday can often push away the gratitude, with resentment and anger moving to the forefront—especially if you are the host of the feast! If you’re tired of all the work and the angst and Aunt Myrtle whining that the canned cranberry sauce is better than the dish you spent hours slaving over, why not make this Thanksgiving different? Plan your escape to one of our GetAway Vacations rental homes in Killington and revel in the peace and wonder of a not so traditional New England Thanksgiving celebration!
You May Want to Sleep Late
There’s no need to get up early, no preparations for the onslaught of guests, no rush to get the turkey in the oven; this year, Thanksgiving is all about you and your immediate family! So, sleep in a little later than you normally would and enjoy that espresso bread muffin you purchased from Sun Up Bakery yesterday and remember: There’s no calories in vacation food! (Well, that’s the way we look at things!).
Or You May Want to Get Your Feet Moving
Registration for the 7th Annual Killington 5K Turkey Trot begins at 8am in the parking lot of the Pickle Barrel! Featuring live music, an open bar, and the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for some awesome prices, your Turkey Day will be enhanced by all the wonder of the turkey trot!
Bring on the Feast
Count the wonderful brunches and buffets that are available on Thanksgiving in Killington as one of your blessings; this year’s feast promises to be a memorable one and you don’t have to wash a single dish! Sample the menu of The Foundry at Summit Pond or jam to the musical entertainment offered at Wobbly Barn as you enjoy a traditional five-course Thanksgiving meal. Your New England Thanksgiving could become your new holiday tradition, and we think you deserve it!
Yes, we are telling you to relax on this holiday, instead of working yourself to exhaustion like usual! Spend some time in the hot tub, take a nap in one of our comfy beds, or read a good book as you keep one eye on the television, waiting for Santa to appear at the end of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade. Life is better when you spend Thanksgiving in a GetAway Vacations cozy cottage or condo—rent yours today!
