Green Mountain Rug School is in full swing now with teachers well into their various specialities and students at work on their projects. The backdrop for all of this learning and fun is The Capitol Plaza in the heart of Montpelier, Vermont. We were interested to see from a pamphlet (pictured below) in the lobby that the spot has been welcoming visitors for nearly 200 years! Fortunately, there are many modern upgrades including elevators, plus air conditioning and a coffeemaker in every room.
Another great feature of The Capitol Plaza is the thoughtfulness and overall attentiveness of the staff. As you can see (below), we were once again treated to a Welcome GMHR (Green Mountain Hooked Rugs) "train" in the lobby. I can hear the voice of my grandmother begging me to insert a "happy hookers" double-entendre at this point so there, I just did! All jokes aside, we are very lucky to have joined in this partnership and have heard rave reviews from teachers and students alike. Indeed, the hotel and the town itself provide the best setting for "happily hooking" in our truly charming state capital.
