Enjoy Thanksgiving Dinner At West Hill House B&B!

October 21st, 2016 by Corey A. Edwards

West Hill House B&B Thanksgiving dinner!Come to Vermont’s Mad River Valley this Thanksgiving and enjoy dinner at our house with the West Hill House B&B Thanksgiving dinner add-on!

Thanksgiving is a time when we gather together and give thanks for all that is good in our lives: our friends and family, health, happiness, and more. It is meant as a time of reflection and coming together as the days shorten. A way of celebrating the good, warm, and friendly aspects of our lives together in this world.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t always work out that way.

All too often there is a tussle over who hosts the dinner. Feelings are in danger of being hurt and the negative emotions can color the holiday. Or maybe the job of creating the meal causes more stress than any one holiday can possibly mitigate. Getting all those dishes done well and on time is no easy task!

If you’re facing these or any other issues, why not take advantage of West Hill House B&B’s Thanksgiving Dinner offer?

Every year, West Hill House B&B hosts a Thanksgiving dinner – and you and your family are invited! Come on and join us as we gather ’round our big dining room table for a traditional dinner.

Our feast always features lots of Thanksgiving favorites created with lots of locally grown produce. You’ll enjoy soup, roast turkey, and farm fresh mashed potatoes with Cabot butter. There will also be sweet potatoes with maple syrup from just down the road, a variety of fresh green vegetables, stuffing made with Red Hen bread, gravy, and cranberries. Chardonnay, Merlot, and Cold Hollow Apple Cider will be on hand to wash down your meal. And no, we won’t forget the pumpkin pie!

And all for only $39! (plus 9% tax)

Menu details may change slightly, depending on what’s available. We’re pretty traditional when it comes to Thanksgiving, though, so you can count on all of the usual favorites.

Thanksgiving Dinner at West Hill House B&B

In order to take advantage of the West Hill House B&B Thanksgiving dinner, we ask that you stay with us for at least two nights. Come by Wednesday night and stay as long as you can. Make a four-day weekend of it, if possible! Just let us know your plans ahead of time.

You can call ahead at 1 (802) 496-7162 or simply click the “Dinner” tab when booking your stay online and order a Thanksgiving dinner for everyone in your party!

This year, let someone else (us!) worry about the meal while you sit back and enjoy yourself.

Novel idea, eh? We thought you’d like it!
