Things To Do In Central Vermont and Warren VT

A Summer Excursion to Ben and Jerry’s Flavor Graveyard

While the factory tour at this famous ice cream duo’s facility is still unavailable, there are still cones to eat and the Ben and Jerry’s Flavor Graveyard to explore. Known as one of the best ice cream plants in the county, Ben and Jerry’s is located in Waterbury, Vermont, just about 35 minutes from our Bed and Breakfast. It’s a beautiful scenic drive from Warren to Waterbury with some fascinating points of interest along the way.

If you’re a fan of sweet treats, then you’ll especially love choosing West Hill House B&B for your lodging accommodations in Vermont. Not only will a beautiful breakfast be prepared each morning of your stay, but throughout the day, Innkeeper Susan serves up mouthwatering homemade cookies with the precision and skill of a professional baker. You’ll find many of her recipes on our blog!

Susan’s home-baked treats are just the beginning of the special touches on a stay at our Vermont Bed and Breakfast. We often hear from our guests that arriving at our Inn is akin to the warm and welcoming feeling of entering a close relative’s house. We encourage you to make yourself at home and we are also delighted to help you with your plans for each day you are with us. In fact, we’re celebrating our 17th year as Innkeepers, and we continue to love looking after our guests.

Visit Ben and Jerry’s Flavor Graveyard and Tour

This iconic ice cream brand is a household name around the globe, and when you’re visiting Vermont, it’s a fantastic addition to your itinerary. The Ben and Jerry’s Flavor Graveyard is a walk to remember. You’ll weave your way through more than 30 “gravestones” of the departed flavors from the famous ice cream line. Each headstone reads the name and ingredients, plus the years it was available. True ice cream lovers are encouraged to vote to bring back their favorite departed flavors.

After you’ve walked the Ben and Jerry’s Flavor Graveyard path, pop up to the outdoor ice cream window for a sweet treat of one of their many still available ice cream flavors. The Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream shop is open daily from 11 am until 6 pm. At this time, they still haven’t set a reopening date for the factory tours, but heading up to Waterbury is still a treat.
