Solar Eclipse Locations: Our Vermont Bed and Breakfast

There’s been a lot of excitement about the total solar eclipse next year on April 8th of 2024, and our Vermont Bed and Breakfast in Warren is directly in its path. The expected duration of totality will be up to 4 minutes and 27 seconds, almost double that of The Great American Eclipse of August 21st, 2017. In Northern Vermont, they’re predicting a duration of 2 hours and 23 minutes with 58 seconds of totality seen from our area. 

Our Vermont Bed and Breakfast is the best place to stay for the solar eclipse in 2024! Not only does our property offer open acreage to explore and find the ideal spot for viewing, but we’re all about celebrations. We’ll host a special dinner that Monday evening after the main event. We’ll also provide the eclipse viewing glasses (which can be hard to find as we get closer to the big day). On our reservations page, you’ll discover details about our offerings on this momentous day! 

Properties in our area are already beginning to fill up for this special occasion, and the next total solar eclipse visible in the United States doesn’t occur until 2044. We can only hope for a beautiful clear day next year for the best viewing experience. Read on to learn more about the amenities at our Vermont Bed and Breakfast, start planning, and get your future reservation on the books today!

  2. We’ve also updated our space into the modern world, with high-speed Wi-Fi, HDTVs in each room (some with Netflix), individually controlled heating and air conditioning, plus three Tesla chargers and two universal J1772 EV charging stations all supplied from our solar power systems.(complimentary to our guests).

En suite baths, air conditioning, gas “wood style” stoves or fireplaces, and beautiful views from the ample windows come standard in each room.

More Things to do in Vermont Near our B&B

Now that you know where to stay for the total solar eclipse in 2024, it’s time to start filling out your itinerary! There are plenty of other things to do in Vermont during your stay. You’ll find a lovely place to explore nearby, our state capital to visit, and fantastic dining opportunities. Here are a few of our favorite things to do in Vermont: 

  1. A Scenic Drive: Driving through Vermont is an experience you won’t forget from the historic covered bridges and farmland peppered with old beautiful churches and structures to the waterfalls and rolling Green Mountains. For those interested in the food tours in the area, we always suggest the Vermont Cheese Trail for a picturesque drive with delicious stops along the way. Ask our Innkeepers for a great route leaving from our Vermont Bed and Breakfast. 
  2. Tour the State Capital Building in Montpelier: As the smallest U.S. capital—with less than 8,000 residents—Montpelier is very walkable and perfect for a day trip. Park the car, feed the meter, and explore this charming tiny but bustling town. The State Capital Building is open for tours and a great way to get a fun history lesson. 
  3. Tours at Ben & Jerry’s: Who doesn’t love ice cream? And even in April, you’ll find this famous creamery is a popular destination for cones, samples, and tours. Check out the Ben & Jerry’s Flavor Graveyard for a nostalgic stroll of the past retired flavors. 
  4. Last Minute Skiing at Sugarbush: One of the most popular things to do in Vermont is hitting the slopes. If the weather is similar to next year, on April 8th, 2024, you might still be able to get some skiing in! Sugarbush Resort is still open this year and is predicting snow season to run through early May. 
  5. Experience Maple Syrup Season: Often the first thing that comes to mind when we think of Vermont is maple syrup, and spring is the perfect time to visit these iconic farms. Many of these local producers still use the traditional methods, we suggest checking out the process at Morse Farm Maple Sugarworks

This is just the start of activities in the area to add to your itinerary during your stay for the total solar eclipse at our Vermont Bed and Breakfast. You’ll have a comfortable place to stay while you view this historic event and also be at the best jumping-off point to explore the nearby things to do in Vermont.
