Gelston House
Enjoy delicious white table cloth dining with a beautiful Connecticut River view in this historic Victorian Inn and restaurant adjacent to the Goodspeed Opera House, just outside Goodspeed Airport.   The setting is lovely and the tiny town charming.  Poke around a bit more and find the restored Nathan Hale one room schoolhouse in a hilltop park and the Hillside Sweet Shoppe.  Check your favorite online mapping application, they are all close by.

This writer liked it so much he came back with a guest the next week.  Worth a trip.

The airport itself has a fairly short but well maintained runway with limited lighting, so check the AFD.  No fuel.
