“A true Vermont gem. The Warren Store is an authentic Vermont country store, and MORE. Dine on the outside deck overlooking Freeman Brook. Great food in a perfectly perfect location, with local craft brews, locally sourced ingredients and goodness beyond imagination. When your tummy is full, head upstairs to explore their "emporium of unexpected treasures". ”
