Vermont – the word immediately brings up the vision of relaxing and romantic settings, comfortable, friendly and safe environments, and great hospitality. Another favourite association is the famous line from the movie White Christmas – “Vermont must be beautiful this time of year, all that snow”.
All true, and of course Vermont is a perfect holiday destination at ALL times of year, both winter and summer. The state is proud of its beautiful small towns, quiet roads, and a very green environment in all senses. The perfect Vermont getaway awaits your visit!

Initially, some visitors are not quite able to put their finger on why a Vermont Getaway is so delightfully different. After they have been here for a few days they clearly see why:

  • Eighty per cent of the state is tree covered, which means gorgeous views from most of our roads including the main highways.
  • Billboards along the roads are simply not allowed, resulting in dramatically improved views.
  • With a population of only 600,000 it seems that everyone knows everyone else and are ready to provide knowledgeable information and referrals to our visitors.
  • It is the “greenest” state in the US with over eighty per cent of electricity coming from non-carbon sources.
  • And it’s the home of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and Cabot Cheese!

The Mad River Valley, encompassing the quintessential small towns of Warren and Waitsfield near the centre of Vermont, epitomizes the nature of the state as a whole. In our valley:

  • All accommodation is locally owned and operated – no chains, no franchises – meaning that you will usually be greeted and taken care of by the people who own the B&B or small country inn you are staying at.
  • All the restaurants are locally owned and operated allowing you to experience Vermont ingredients and cuisine at its best.
  • Not a single set of traffic lights!
