Breakfast in the Sun Room at West Hill House

Breakfast in the Sun Room

From guests Jessica & David:

We spent a long Columbus Day weekend enjoying the fall colors and exploring the area. The West Hill House met every expectation of what we wanted in a New England B&B. Susan and Peter went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The WHH B&B was very clean, very cozy and Susan’s breakfasts were delicious.

The number of guests seemed just right (it was full up at 16 guests) and we enjoyed making new friends. The woodstoves in the common areas and the gas stoves in the bedrooms added to the ambiance, along with the decorative lighting throughout.

We travelled with another couple and the four of us are planning to return in the winter for a ski weekend.The West Hill House is about a 5-minute drive from Sugarbush. (Editor – actually about 2 minutes.)

Relaxing in the Hammock at West Hill House

We were surprised at the number of good restaurants in the area, and we enjoyed the farmer’s market, Sugarbush quad chairlift up Lincoln Peak, the Sugarbush zipline, and a glider ride at Sugarbush Soaring.

Editor:  As you can see from their photos, our guests enjoyed great breakfasts and some nice relaxation in the hammock.

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.
