Memorial Day Adventures

May 18, 2010 by Peter MacLaren

Vermont Open Studio WeekendStart summer off with a relaxing weekend in the Mad River Valley with 3 nights of accommodation and a barbecue dinner included, and several optional activities to choose from. To make it easy we will do the planning for you, but you must book by Monday May 24th so that we can make all the arrangements. Check out the full details on our Memorial Day Package page.

Activities you can include:

  • Open Studio Weekend: The Mad River Valley has many artists who work a wide variety of crafts and their studios are exciting places to visit because they reflect the dynamic yet organized process that is used to produce the finished work of art. Over Memorial Day weekend it is Open Studio Weekend in Vermont and there will be many studios close by for you to visit and enjoy at no charge.
  • Soaring above the Valley: One of the most beautiful soaring sites in the United States is nestled in the Mad River Valley here in Warren. Memorial Day weekend is a great time to take to the skies over the Valley. The cost is about $135 per person for a 20 minute visit to the heavens, or about $180 for 30 minutes. Soaring is available every day, weather permitting.
  • Kayaking on the Mad River: You will head out after breakfast from West Hill House and our friends at Clearwater Sports will give you the opportunity to see the Mad River Valley from the water! No prior experience is required. The cost is $80 per person and is available Saturday and Sunday.
  • A round of Golf at Sugarbush: We’re right beside one of the fairways and less than a mile from the club house of the Sugarbush Resort Robert Trent Jones, Sr. championship golf course. A round of golf for 2 people, including a cart is just $150 on Saturday or Sunday and $100 on Monday.
