Experiencing the fall foliage in Vermont, by car, from NYC, in 2.5 days. Help me plan!

I want to drive out of Manhattan on a Friday afternoon in October, Vermont-bound. Ideally I'll drive about 4 hours on Friday, rest for the night anywhere, and early on Saturday go for an all-day-long scenic drive to see the foliage. Then sleep in some charming Vermont B&B, drive around some more on Sunday, and head back to NY in the afternoon.
If you've done this before, please recommend:
- A good place to sleep ~200-230 miles from NY into Vermont
- Best day-long and half-day-long scenic drives
- That charming B&B, bedbugless
- Restaurants, shops, great landmarks, foods to try, particularly stunning spots to see and photograph.
And anything else you can think of -- I have never done this before, and I'd appreciate the wisdom!
