Moose Meadow Lodge is an imposing bed and breakfast in the woods of Waterbury. It’s a big gleaming log lodge decorated with wild animal trophies, from salt water sport fish to some unfortunate local residents.
In one corner, there’s a roadkilled fox that owners Willie Docto and Greg Trulson had stuffed and mounted. Docto is also president of the Vermont Gay Tourism Association, which was founded nearly a decade ago. At the time no state had legalized same-sex marriage, and only Vermont offered civil unions. But Docto says it was clear things were about to change.
