Are you looking for a simple Vermont weekend getaway? Having half of your meals covered makes a trip a bit easier to organize, right?
This spring, we are offering our “Add Dinner to a Bed and Breakfast” package. Stay for two nights in the room of your choice and add dinner to one of those evenings. Your meal will take place at the Common Man, one of the best restaurants in central Vermont. You get a three-course meal (selected off the menu) along with coffee and tea.
About the Common Man Restaurant
Over 150 years old, the soaring hand hewn rafters of the timbered interior are lit by crystal chandeliers, soft candlelight, and a huge open hearth fireplace (lit during the cool nights). Now in its fourth decade of continuous operation the restaurant has earned scores of prestigious awards and accolades including Three Stars from both The Boston Globe and the Mobil Travel Guide.
A couple sample items from the menu:
- Smoked Salmon Burschetta. Red onion, apple, potato, lemon caper aioli
- Halibut, served with potato, cauliflower, swiss chard, mushroom in a white wine emulsion
See the full menu on the Common Man’s website.
Common Man Reviews from Yelp.com:
“Go. Just go. Get a sitter. Save the money and splurge. It’s worth it.
Boston ain’t New York but I’ve had my fair share of great meals. This makes the ‘Top Ten’ list. Food, service and ambiance combine to make the whole more than the sum of its parts.” – Christopher L. 2/19/13
“Lorien, Adam, and their staff continue to amaze. New York strip was a beautiful cut cooked perfectly with a side of au gratin potatoes that were out of this world. They now have house made blue cheesed stuffed olives for you martini people. The desserts were unbelievable too. The service was impeccable. The Common Man is hands down my favorite restaurant anywhere right now. Do yourself a huge favor and have a meal here next time you are in the Mad River Valley!” – Chris H. 12/20/12
Keep in Mind: This offer is available Tuesday through Saturday night. Please order this dinner add-on when you book your room. Taxes and gratuities for dinner are included. Drinks are additional.
With the ski season wrapping up, it tends to feel pretty peaceful in the Mad River Valley during April and May. We will strive to keep you informed about the fun to be had in our corner of Vermont while the snow disappears and green buds poke out over all the branches.
How about Dinner and a Movie?
Seven miles north of our Bed and Breakfast in Warren VT is popular local hangout, with an international flair: Big Picture Cafe and Theater. An eatery and theater for both film and live action, this makes a good destination for a couple taking a getaway with a low-stress itinerary.
Along with current films, enjoy live music and comedy. No matter the event, take your meal and your drinks inside the theater. That’s right, you can order your dinner, cocktails or beer, then bring it into the theater with you to enjoy during the movie or performance. How fun is that?! There are some tables but mostly stadium-style seating, so come early unless you are okay with eating from your lap.
Check out music and other events taking place in April at the Big Picture on their website.
Romantic Touches for a Weekend Away
Just because you’re taking a low-stress getaway, doesn’t mean there isn’t time for a few delicious details. An example: for only $45, enjoy a chilled bottle of French Champagne upon your arrival at the inn in Warren, or whenever you would like! We will also provide two Champagne flutes for you to bring home with you. See other special add-ons for your stay at the B&B.
Anytime you need, we are here to help you relax, unwind and reconnect. Let West Hill House be your home away from home, where we do the cooking, wash the dishes and make the beds!
