This place is the best! You really could not hope for a more charming place to eat breakfast, lunch, or ice cream. The store is extremely well stocked with groceries and is staffed by smiling, helpful people.

Recommend coming to the Barnard General Store for lunch. Great sandwiches and salads. Recommend sitting at the counter or go across the street and sit at a bench to enjoy the view of the lake.

BGS is a microcosm of what makes Vermont the great and unique place it is to this day. The atmosphere cannot be beat and the chili/soup/sandwich selection is excellent. Stopping there when out for a drive is always a must-do and like any true General...More
