To start planning your vacation to The Pitcher Inn
The Pitcher Inn is a charming Relais & Châteaux property in the picturesque village of Warren, nestled to the north-east of the Green Mountain National Forest. It's ideally situated in the Mad River Valley for all-season activities, ranging from trekking, cycling and swimming in the summer, through to 'leaf peeping' in the Fall, and skiing at the nearby Sugarbush, Killington and Stowe mountain resorts in the winter. Warren is the ideal base for exploring the attractions of northern Vermont - lakeside Burlington is within a one hour drive, quaint Woodstock within one hour 15 minutes, food-heaven Stowe for the essential Ben & Jerry's visit is just 45 minutes, and for an outlet shopping, fly fishing or off-roading experience you have Manchester in under two hours.
This charming property makes for a magical escape for both couples and families. Its traditional New England wood clad facade, with balconied rooms overlooking the infamous Warren General Store, help add to the surprise when you enter the guest rooms. Each guest room is uniquely designed in a whimsical, Vermont theme, with one to suit every taste. The architect's inspiration came from watching The Beatles 'Yellow Submarine' video, where they find a different fantastical scene behind every door - brilliant! A truly unique, fun and memorable property.
The majority of guest rooms have one king-size bed, though the Ski room has a queen-size pull-out sofa making it a suitable choice for families. Alternatively there are two lovely two-bedroom suites in the "barn" which are a stones throw away from the main house and ideal for families looking for two separate bedrooms and a shared living space.
275 Main and Tracks are The Pitcher Inn's two restaurants. The former is the more formal, a la carte dining option serving wonderful farm to table produce (locally sourced where possible!), where breakfast is also served, and the latter is their lively, firelit tavern serving nourishing dishes, craft beers and wines from their award-winning wine cellar. If traveling over a special occasion, their wine cellar can be reserved for a private dining experience where their chef will prepare a special tasting menu for you to enjoy, surrounded by floor-to-ceiling racks holding their trove of award-winning wines and an abundance of candles flickering on stone walls.
The Pitcher Inn offers nine uniquely designed guest rooms in the main house, and two two-bedroom suites in a traditional, red wood clad barn, situated next to the main Inn, ideal for families. Each room has its own wonderful theme in keeping with its Vermont surrounds, with something to suit everyone's taste, from the more traditional Calvin Coolidge and Colonial rooms, to the extraordinary Ski, Trout and Mountain rooms. Many of the rooms include wood-burning fireplaces and private balconies either overlooking the village of Warren or their picturesque garden with babbling brook. All are extremely spacious with sitting areas, king-size beds with Fili d'Oro linens, amenities from Boston's Salon Mario Russo, complimentary WiFi, well-appointed bathrooms and an abundance of fascinating talking points. You will truly be amazed when you step into your room!
The Pitcher Inn has two wonderful restaurants - 275 Main and Tracks. 275 Main is an a la carte farm-to-table restaurant, serving an array of locally sourced seasonal Vermont produce in a romantic dining room setting with white linen and candles, or on the terrace overlooking the garden and river during fine weather. Tracks is the property's lively, firelit tavern serving more traditional pub fare, craft beers and fine wines from their award-winning wine cellar. The Maple Games Room, which features a salon-size pool table, dartboard and table-top shuffleboard is part of Tracks, proving fantastic entertainment for children and adults alike. Guests can also opt for a private dining experience in the Pitcher Inn's wine cellar, which is the perfect place for a romantic meal by candlelight, surrounded by floor-to-ceiling racks of award-winning wines.
Guests have complimentary access to yoga mats, snowshoes, trek hybrid bikes (including helmets), Mad River Explorers canoes, and Mad River Rocket Sleds during their stay, as well as access to the Sugarbush Health and Recquet Club less than a 10-minute drive away. The Club features a gym, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, jacuzzi, and tennis courts. Guests can also access the Valley Rock Gym indoor climbing wall at a supplementary charge. For those looking to relax and unwind, a private in-room massage can also be arranged through the hotel.
Location & Directions
The Pitcher Inn is situated to the north-east of the Green Mountain National Forest in the picturesque town of Warren, where the Mad River flows through. It's just three miles from Sugarbush Ski Resort, and a 45-minute drive from both Killington Mountain Resort to the south and Stowe Mountain Resort to the north.
When to go
Vermont is wonderful in summer as the temperature is warm and there are plenty of outdoor activities, ranging from cycling through to swimming in the many swimming holes. Fall is a fantastic time of year to visit for the Fall colors - these start towards the end of September in the north of the state, and then progress further south throughout October. Vermont is also extremely beautiful during the winter months, and there are numerous ski resorts scattered around the state which are very popular during the season.
