Spring Fun at Big Picture Cafe & Theater

April 7th, 2013 by Katie Pate

With the ski season wrapping up, it tends to feel pretty peaceful in the Mad River Valley during April and May. We will strive to keep you informed about the fun to be had in our corner of Vermont while the snow disappears and green buds poke out over all the branches.

How about Dinner and a Movie?

Seven miles north of our Bed and Breakfast in Warren VT is popular local hangout, with an international flair: Big Picture Cafe and Theater. An eatery and theater for both film and live action, this makes a good destination for a couple taking a getaway with a low-stress itinerary.

Take a break and visit us in Warren VT this spring!

Take a break and visit us in Warren VT this spring!

Along with current films, enjoy live music and comedy. No matter the event, take your meal and your drinks inside the theater. That’s right, you can order your dinner, cocktails or beer, then bring it into the theater with you to enjoy during the movie or performance. How fun is that?! There are some tables but mostly stadium-style seating, so come early unless you are okay with eating from your lap.

Check out music and other events taking place in April at the Big Picture on their website.

Romantic Touches for a Weekend Away

Just because you’re taking a low-stress getaway, doesn’t mean there isn’t time for a few delicious details. An example: for only $45, enjoy a chilled bottle of French Champagne upon your arrival at the inn in Warren, or whenever you would like! We will also provide two Champagne flutes for you to bring home with you. See other special add-ons for your stay at the B&B.

Anytime you need, we are here to help you relax, unwind and reconnect. Let West Hill House be your home away from home, where we do the cooking, wash the dishes and make the beds!

Winter Wedding

Ryan & Jeff married by Greg Trulson, Justice of the Peace

 

With early season snowflakes whirling about them, and the temperature sitting at about 28°F, Ryan and Jeff were married in the meadow at West Hill House B&B. Our favorite Justice of the Peace, Greg Trulson officiated at the wedding making it a very meaningful occasion, as he always does. Following the ceremony,  the newly married couple asked Peter to continue taking photos as they enjoyed a short stroll around our wintery gardens.

Warming up by the fireplace a few minutes later Ryan and Jeff enjoyed an intimate wedding reception complete with wedding cake, made here at West Hill House, and a bottle of  Champagne. They were kind enough to invite Greg and Peter and Susan to join them.

Ryan loves experimenting with recipes. Check out her food blog called Skinny Supper. It’s a fun site with lots of photos to help you along.

A love story

Dancing in the Handsome Red Barn

Nicky and Daniel were married at West Hill House on Saturday October 20th. Here is their story, as told by Nicky…

Who would have known 24 years ago that on a high school band trip up to Montreal, that my life would be forever changed.

As a young girl at age 16, I travelled from Long Island, NY, up to Montreal, Canada on a school trip where I met the love of my life.

Daniel and I met at La Ronde amusement park in 1988. We fell deeply in love and travelled back and forth (eight hours away) for over three and a half years. It was challenging but we were very determined.  Through snow storms and traffic, limitations of parents rules, school schedules and crossing the border… nothing was to stop us!

As our love was strong, so were our challenges. Eventually we parted and went our separate ways, although we were forever in each other’s hearts.

Twenty three years later, after many life changes and through the benefit of technology, we reconnected and our relationship flourished.  Quickly we planned our life together and our wedding at the beautiful West Hill House B&B. It was absolutely lovely to say the least. We were so fortunate to have the benefit of our closest friends and family by our sides, and the generosity of Peter and Susan to make our day magical and unforgettable.

Small Weddings: Budget & Family Friendly

April 20th, 2011 by Peter MacLaren

Family join Jennifer and Mark for their December 2010 wedding.

Your wedding should be a very special day which expresses your style and personality, even if you are working with a small wedding budget. Small weddings are the trend these days as couples are opting for a more personal occasion with just family and close friends. Small and intimate weddings provide an opportunity for the couple to visit with each guest, to relax and enjoy the occasion, to really put their personal touches on the celebration, and for the families to get to know each other in a comfortable setting. To say nothing of saving money to put towards a wonderful honeymoon, a house down-payment or even towards paying off student loans.

If you have an intimate wedding in mind why not consider a B&B venue? Such a location can provide a dramatic backdrop for your own special touches. Whether an elegant country estate, an urban city-scape, or like ours, a mountain setting with meadows, gazebo, handsome red barn, ponds and gardens, there is a B&B sure to suit your taste.

You can have the memorable, intimate wedding of your dreams with memories to last a life time, without breaking the bank. Small is beautiful!

At West Hill House B&B we work with highly qualified, local wedding professionals to help you plan a stress free occasion. We have facilities for weddings from 2 to 80 people and we still have a few June and July 2011 dates available for wedding bookings. We pride ourselves in providing you and your guests with personal attention and excellent service, all in a restful country setting near Sugarbush in the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont.
