Plan Now for the Best Fall in Vermont in 2023

As the bright green leaves change to the gold, red, and orange hues of autumn, there’s an otherworldly feeling that takes over in the Mad River Valley. There’s nothing quite more magical than experiencing fall in Vermont—and everyone should at least once in their lives. There are so many amazing things to do in Vermont all year long, but the striking fall foliage makes these activities even more festive. Before long, you’ll be craving that cup of steaming apple cider, curling up by a fire, and relishing the sights and sounds of autumn. 

Although we are still savoring the joys of summer in the Mad River Valley, we can’t help but anticipate the breathtaking burst of colors that autumn brings. Look no further if you’re hunting for prime locations to witness the fall foliage! Vermont has consistently been recognized as one of the top destinations for leaf-peeping, especially in the Central area, home to our historic Vermont bed and breakfast. 

West Hill House Bed and Breakfast is the perfect place for your fall getaways. Our rural escape, located in the charming village of Warren, VT, is all about relaxation, comfort, and immersing yourself in the beauty of fall in Vermont.

Experience the Beauty of Fall in Vermont this Year

Planning ahead is important to make the most of your time during the fall in Vermont. You’ll find a host of outdoor activities to enjoy in the gorgeous fall weather, including hiking and scenic drives with the beautiful autumn foliage as a backdrop. We also have insider information on other ways to celebrate the season. In Vermont, we take pride in our fall festivities and invite you to experience the very best of it with us.

Here are the top things to do this fall in Vermont: 

  1. Hiking at Sugarbush Resort: While Sugarbush is known for its world-class skiing, the fall in Vermont brings a beautiful adventure to the mountain. You can take in the hues on foot on one of the many hiking trails, but a scenic lift ride is where you’ll find some of the best views of the foliage. There’s also a segment of the Long Trail just behind our B&B, and you’ll see some fantastic Vermont fall colors there too. 
  2. Sugarbush Soaring: While you’ll find great views hiking in the mountains, they get even better when you head up to the skies with Sugarbush Soaring for an adventure you won’t soon forget. Quietly soar above in a glider with the colorful autumnal hues of the Mad River Valley below is beyond breathtaking. 
  3. Tour the Covered Bridges of Vermont: One of the most classic scenes during fall in Vermont is approaching a historic covered bridge with a wash of fall color as a backdrop. The winding backroads and small highways are perfect for scenic drives. Head out on the Mad River Scenic Byway, and you’ll get an eyeful of these striking Vermont fall colors. As a guest at our Vermont Bed and Breakfast, ask us about our curated covered bridge tour
  4. Head to Cold Hollow Cider Mill: We anticipate the opening each year of this historic cider mill and fall hub of activity. You’ll taste fresh pressed non-alcoholic and hard cider varieties, enjoy tasty cider donuts, find Vermont treats, and they even have a fantastic restaurant on-site for lunch. 
  5. Explore the Waitsfield Farmers Market: The autumn brings a whole new array of options to this local farmers market. As our state is dedicated to supporting small businesses and farms, there’s such a lovely selection here of produce, goods, and arts & crafts. 
  6. Discover the Vermont Cheese Trail: Another classic activity along backroads with striking fall foliage lining the roadways is heading out to a few stops on the famed cheese trail. These local dairy farms create fun experiences and fantastic tasting opportunities. 
  7. Ben and Jerry’s Ice Creamery: Fall weather still calls for an ice cream cone, and it’s a beautiful drive to this famous creamery for facility tours, treats, and a behind-the-scenes look at the iconic brand.
  8. Day Trip to Montpelier: One of the best things to do this fall in Vermont is just a 45-minute scenic drive from our Vermont Bed and Breakfast, the smallest capital of the US is perfect for a day trip. You’ll find some of the best things to do in Vermont here, from charming shops to tasty restaurants and tours of the State House to informative museums.
