For seven weeks a year, on a campus in the scenic Green Mountains, the Marlboro Music School and Festival plays host to world-renowned and budding classical musicians. In order to have proper accommodations for artists like Yo Yo Ma, Jonathan Biss and Murray Perahia, the festival contacted HGA Architects and Engineers to design and build five cottages on the grounds in Marlboro, Vermont. The firm drew on inspiration from the 500-acre campus itself and the traditional Cape Cod style of gabled roofs and bare walls to create the cedar cottages you see here. Vermont slate covered gable roofs sit atop red cedar plank construction and meet the ground with indigenous fieldstone bases. The simple and sleek exteriors give way to interior elements like locally sourced white pine walls, Vermont slate floors, large windows and furniture / decor that make these cabins fit perfectly with the festival that The New Yorker Magazine describes as “The classical world’s most coveted retreat.”

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
