Known for independent thinking, varied landscapes, heritage buildings, four distinct seasons, famed fall foliage, renowned maple syrup, micro-brews and the most snow on the East Coast. Vermont, the Green Mountain State, is about as diverse as it gets. Spend days hiking or exploring back roads to discover Vermont’s historic covered bridges. Catch up with local artisans, hit the slopes, follow the foliage or grab a cone from the celebrated Ben and Jerry’s ice cream factory! It’s time to join us as we relax and reconnect in scenic Vermont.
The Pitcher Inn
The Pitcher Inn, a Relais & Châteaux hotel, offers charming luxury in a relaxed and intimate setting in the lovely New England village of Warren, Vermont. It is near the base of the historic Sugarbush Ski Resort and 15 minutes from Mad River Glen, with some of the best skiing in the East. Getting to Warren is a 3 hour drive from Boston and 5 hours from New York City. Each of the 9 rooms and 2 suites are comfortable and well appointed; themed to pay homage to different pieces of Vermont history. If you’re planning a milestone celebration or executive retreat, The Pitcher Inn, offers a full buyout for up to 33 guests. We are more than delighted to offer our clients a few extras, like daily full breakfast for two guests per bedroom, $100 spa credit, and early check-in/late check-out, subject to availability. Located on property for guests is the Maple Game Room, which features a salon-sized pool table and table-top shuffleboard. The Inn also has Trek hybrid bikes, Mad River Explorer canoes, and Mad River Rocket sleds and snowshoes, to enjoy. Just across the street is The Warren Store, an authentic country store with a woodburning potbelly stove, Vermont made goods, local craft beers, and a great deli and bakery. The best part is, anything you buy at the store can be charged to your room…convenience at its best! Oenophiles will rejoice in The Pitcher Inn wine cellar of over 500 bottles recognized by Wine Spectator‘s “Best Award of Excellence”.
The Lodge at Spruce Peak
A short drive past the historic Waterbury Village, is The Lodge at Spruce Peak, a resort for all four seasons. Located in the heart of Stowe alpine village, Spruce Peak has slope side access to the most legendary ski resort in the East, a stone’s throw to hiking & biking trails in the area, ponds, lakes to fly fish, and the best place to land when following the Fall foliage. We love that The Lodge is smack dab in the heart of Spruce Peak village, where you’ll enjoy easy access to ice skating, the performing arts center, adventure center with climbing facility, zipline, treetop adventure course, and gondola rides. The Lodge has 312 keys to include studios, and one, two- and three-bedroom suites, with spectacular mountain views. Among the rooms, are the exclusive Penthouse units within the upper floors of The Lodge, offering guests a private check-in, concierge, and daily continental breakfast. With up to 3,000 square feet, these spacious penthouses can accommodate several families, and feature full gourmet kitchens with living and dining space, private balconies, and floor-to-ceiling windows with sweeping mountain views. Planning a trip for families or groups? Let us introduce you to the Luxury Rental Collection at Spruce Peak, which provides the same full-service, luxury experience in private homes with two, three or even six-bedrooms. We love that many of the furnishings in this casually chic resort are made by Vermont artisans for a truly authentic aesthetic. Spruce Peak also features an 18-hole, par 72 championship mountain course designed by the legendary Bob Cupp. Make sure you plan some time to visit the spa to find your Vermont bliss. This over 20,000 square-foot spa includes a full-service fitness center, outdoor swimming pool with indoor access, and water therapy. The extensive spa menu includes a kid’s treatment menu with offerings like kids fitness classes and mini-me massages and facials. We love that!
