Directions & Parking Arrangements at West Hill House
Below, we have posted detailed and up-to-date driving directions to our Warren, Vermont B&B. We live here and know the roads well—please read through our recommended directions and don’t let your GPS or mapping website lead you astray! Call us for more info if you’d like to arrive by private plane at the nearby Warren/Sugarbush airport or by Amtrack to Waterbury. Also here are our printable directions.
Our General Location
The Town of Warren is located in the middle of Vermont. We are 24 miles south of the state capital Montpelier and 45 miles southeast—one hour by rental car—of the nearest commercial airport (BTV) in the state’s largest town of Burlington.
The Mad River flows north through the town with Route 100 in its valley. The Northfield Ridge is to the east and the Green Mountains create the western boundary.
The best way to get here from almost anywhere (except for SW Vermont and upstate NY—see below for those), including all commercial airports such as Burlington (BTV), Montreal (YUL), Boston (BOS) and Manchester (MHT), is to drive to Vermont Exit 9 (Middlesex, VT) or 10 (Waterbury, VT) on Interstate 89 and take Route 100B or Route 100 respectively towards Waitsfield and Warren. (We strongly caution against taking any other exits from the highway—using the exits we recommend will not take any longer and it will save you from getting lost or taking inappropriate routes over steep passes or gravel roads!) As there is construction on Route 100 south of Waitsfield we HIGHLY recommend that you turn right onto Route 17 at the south end of Waitsfield. After about 2 miles you will pass the Hyde Away restaurant then turn left onto German Flats Road. At the end of that road in about 3 miles you will come to the Sugarbush Access Road at a “T” intersection; turn right and drive 1 mile to the intersection at the Sugarbush base where you will see the parking lot exit sign in front of you. Turn left onto Inferno Road and drive one mile to West Hill Road. Turn right at the “Y” and you will be here! (Note that the actual road sign for Inferno Road seems popular and is sometimes missing!)
If you are coming from SW Vermont and upstate NY, head to Rutland, VT then take Route 7 North through Middlebury. About 3 miles north of Middlebury at the bottom of a hill take Route 17 east though Bristol. About 2 miles north of Bristol watch for Route 17 heading off to the right. This will take you over the Appalachian Gap, which is a scenic although twisty road. On the east side of the gap you will pass the Mad River Glen ski area then after a further two miles take German Flats Road on your right. Then follow the directions above. (There is construction on Route 100 south of Warren so coming up Route 100 is not recommended.)
- For all rooms, except the Paris Suite and Garden Room, please park in front of our red barn diagonally. Come across to the B&B and ring the door bell to let us know you have arrived; then, come on in. If there is no space in front of the barn, continue past the front of the B&B to the south side, and use the parking area on the right of the road.
- For the Garden Room, drive past the front of the B&B to the south side, use the parking area on the right of the road, then come to the door under the portico up the flagstone walkway. Ring the door bell at your private entrance to the room.
- For the Paris Suite drive up West Hill Extension on the right (north) side of the B&B about 100 ft, turn left into the Paris Suite’s private parking spot, then use the steps up to the deck. Ring the door bell at your private entrance to the suite.
Should you find that you’ll be later than about 9 pm, we’d appreciate a call and we’ll leave a note on the front door directing you to your room. We’ll give you a proper welcome in the morning!
