We have two great ski deals this season.
Ski it if you can! New for 2010 – when you stay during the week for 2 or more nights you can enjoy a Mad River Glen ski pass for $30 per day. (2 tickets per room max.) Plus, if Mad River Glen is closed for any reason we will give you $20 per day per room towards lift tickets at Sugarbush.
Then we have the amazingly flexible Ski-the-Valley package, which offers a great way to try all the skiing that the Mad River Valley offers. When you stay two or more weekday nights (Sunday through Thursday) we can add a multi-day weekday (Monday through Friday) Ski the Valley ski pass for up to the same number of days at a very attractive daily rate. The pass lets you go straight to the lifts at Mad River Glen and Sugarbush, and ski at Olé’s Cross Country ski resort – all on the same day if you wish!

In addition to telling almost everything we can think about regarding West Hill House and the surrounding area, our website also has some useful links to other travel information.
Check these out for information on other B&Bs around the US and Canada that we can personally recommend, and for information about Scotland.
Almost every guest at West Hill House asks Peter about planning a visit to Scotland, or reminisces about visits already made. If you are interested in Scotland the links provide a good intro to helpful information and photos, but come and stay with us to talk some more…

The gardens at West Hill House are starting to show the colors of spring! We are always amazed at this time of year when our beautiful gardens start to emerge from their winter sleep. The buds are on the old apple trees, the leaves unfurl on the maples, the flowers are blooming, and the chipmunks which scurry over and around the boulders in the garden are driving our adorable indoor cats, Smoky and Snowball, absolutely nuts! The crocuses were the first to brave the early spring poking their blooms through the snowy blanket which still lay on the ground. These gorgeous miniature tulips were the next flowers, spied by a guest one bright sunny morning, and flashes of yellow daffodils can be seen scattered throughout the gardens.
Our landscape artist, Patty, and her crew keep our extensive B&B gardens in tip top form for our guests to enjoy. Whether you are an avid gardener, like Patty, or just love the look of beautiful flowers, as I do, our peaceful gardens are decked out nature’s palette and await your arrival. Spring has sprung in the Green Mountains of Vermont!
