Directions & Parking Arrangements at West Hill House B&B
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 if you’d like to arrive by Amtrack to Waterbury. Also here are our printable directions.
Our address is 1496 West Hill Road, Warren, Vermont 05674. The Town of Warren is located in the middle of Vermont. We are 24 miles (39km) south of the state capital Montpelier and 45 miles (72km) southeast—one hour by rental car—of the nearest commercial airport (BTV) in the state’s largest town of Burlington.
The Mad River flows through the town with Route 100 in its valley. The Northfield Ridge is to the east and the Green Mountains create the western boundary.
Please note: Route 100 south of Warren and north of Granville WILL be closed between August 4th and 18th for a bridge replacement, and there may be one-lane operation or delays prior to and after that date. The directions below offer an alternate route.
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!) After you pass through Waitsfield, watch out for a CITGO gas station about three miles (about 5km) south on your right, followed by a bridge over the Mad River, which you will cross. Just over the crest of the hill, turn right onto the Sugarbush Access Road and drive for 3 miles (about 5km) 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 (1.6km), then just past a 35 mph speed limit sign turn right onto West Hill Road and you will see the B&B in front of you. Once you arrive please follow the parking directions below.
If you are coming from SW Vermont and upstate NY, head to Rutland, VT then take Route 7 north through Middlebury. About 2 miles north of Middlebury take Route 17 east across the Appalachian Gap and continue to Route 100 in Waitsfield. Turn south (right) on Route 100 then watch out for a CITGO gas station after about three miles (about 5km) on your right, followed by a bridge over the Mad River, which you will cross. Just over the crest of the hill, turn right onto the Sugarbush Access Road and drive for 3 miles (about 5km) 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 (1.6km), then just past a 35 mph speed limit sign turn right onto West Hill Road and you will see the B&B in front of you. Once you arrive please follow the parking directions below.
If you are coming from Ontario or Quebec, note that the Nexus lane at Highgate Springs (at the north end of I89) is now usually open 3:30pm to 6pm on Fridays, and northbound into Canada the Nexus lane is usually open 7/24. If you are coming from the Ottawa area the new Route 30 southern bypass of Montreal completely avoids the traffic. Watch for the signs as you approach Montreal on Route 40. The toll on the new bridge is $2.00 by cash or credit card.
Please do not stop on the roadway, even to load or unload, and please note the following guidance for parking:
- 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, parallel parking facing the house, 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.
Please leave any wet or muddy footwear on the mats just inside the door—we suggest you bring a pair of indoor shoes to wear in the B&B. 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!
