- Below, we have posted detailed up-to-date driving directions to our Warren, Vermont B&B. We live here and know the roads well—please read through our recommended directions and don’t let your GPS*or mapping website lead you astray
- From I89 use VT exit 9 or 10 only (not 3 nor 5). (Note that there will be roadworks on the routes from both Exit 9 and 10 during the summer of 2020. Follow diversions where appropriate.)
- From I87 head to Rutland VT, then east on 4, then north on 100.
- Don’t use West Hill Road in winter as it is steep, use the Sugarbush Access Road.
- We are 45 miles (72km) southeast of Burlington airport (BTV).Please note that while you can take a taxi from the airport (check with us for recommendations) there is NO local taxi nor Uber etc. in the Mad River Valley. At least one person in your party needs a car.

Our address is 1496 West Hill Road, Warren, Vermont 05674.
The Town of Warren is located in the middle of Vermont. We are 24 miles (39km) south of the state capital Montpelier and 45 miles (72km) southeast—one hour by rental car—of the nearest commercial airport (BTV) in the state’s largest town of Burlington. If you are flying here we strongly recommend flying into Burlington even if requires a change of planes or a few more $; other airports are a significant drive from here and will usually also require a much longer time to retrieve luggage and pick up a rental car.
The Mad River flows through the town with Route 100 in its valley. The Northfield Ridge is east and the Green Mountains are on the west.
Driving Directions from Almost Anywhere to Our Bed and Breakfast in Warren, Vermont
(except SW Vermont and upstate NY – see below)
- The best way to get here from almost anywhere, including all commercial airports such as Burlington (BTV), Montreal (YUL), Boston (BOS) and Manchester (MHT), is to drive to Vermont Exit 9 (Middlesex, VT) on Interstate 89 and take Route 100B then Route 100 towards Waitsfield and Warren. We strongly caution against taking any other exits from the highway. Using the exits we recommend will not take any longer and it will save you from getting lost or taking inappropriate routes over steep passes and gravel roads, or getting stuck in roadworks!
- After you pass through Waitsfield, watch out for a CITGO gas station about three miles (approx. 5km) south on your right, followed by a bridge over the Mad River which you will cross.
- Just over the crest of the hill, turn right onto the Sugarbush Access Road and drive for 3 miles (approx. 5km) to the intersection at the Sugarbush base where you will see the parking lot exit sign in front of you. Turn left onto Inferno Road and drive one mile (1.6km), then just past a 35 mph speed limit sign turn right onto West Hill Road and you will see the B&B in front of you. Once you arrive please follow the parking directions below.
From SW Vermont and Upstate NY
- First head to Rutland VT. From Albany, NY or further south or west our favorite route is through Troy, east on NY Route 7, then north on Vermont 7 – it is quieter and a generally beautiful route.
- From Rutland head east on Route 4 then north on Route 100. Continue on 100 past the turn off to Warren and in one mile you will see West Hill Road on your left.
- In warm weather just follow it taking the left turn at each of the three forks you will come to and you will be here! Don’t be intimidated by the “Snow Tires required” sign in summer!
- In winter we recommend an alternate route, as West Hill Road is steep and windy. We recommend you drive about 2 miles (3 km) further to the Sugarbush Access Road on your left, then drive for another 3 miles (about 5km) to the intersection at the Sugarbush base where you will see the parking lot exit sign in front of you. Turn left onto Inferno Road and drive one mile (1.6km), then just past a 35 mph speed limit sign turn right onto West Hill Road and you will see the B&B in front of you.
- Either way, once you arrive please follow the parking directions below. Route 100 is a beautiful drive in daylight, but it is windy and goes through small towns with reduced speed limits so take care after dark—and watch out for animals.
Traveling From Ontario or Quebec? Please Note:
The Nexus lane at Highgate Springs (at the north end of I89) is now usually open 3pm to 6pm on Fridays, and northbound into Canada the Nexus lane is usually open 7/24. If you are coming from the Ottawa area the new Route 30 southern bypass of Montreal completely avoids the traffic. Watch for the signs as you approach Montreal on Route 40. The toll on the new bridge is $2.80 by cash or credit card.
