Yuletide in the Mad River Valley: Holidays at The Pitcher Inn

Looking for the perfect holiday getaway? With all due modesty, let us propose the Pitcher Inn here in Vermont’s gorgeous Mad River Valley: You’ll find coziness and seasonal cheer in spades here!

Mad River Valley = Winter Paradise

For one thing, luxury accommodations in our historic, restored hotel in Warren give you just about unbeatable access to grade-A Vermont snow activities. With the renowned slopes of Sugarbush and Mad River Glen within easy reach—not to mention loads of cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and other wintertime recreation—you’ve got plenty of opportunities to take advantage of the Green Mountains’ white stuff.

Pine, Wine & Fireplaces

Much of the holiday cheer happens to be in your Pitcher Inn suite or guestroom. You’ll be charmed by your very own in-room Christmas tree: We’ll decorate it for you or you can do the honors, either way!

Our guests treat The Pitcher Inn as a home-away-from-home, and the feeling’s complete when you kick back in front of your wood-burning fireplace with a tall glass of wine—maybe a mug of hot chocolate for the little ones—and admire the firelight reflecting on your dressed-up evergreen.

What could be cozier (especially after a day out in the snow)? Might as well be a scene straight off an Advent calendar.

And remember: A Pitcher Inn holiday stay comes backed by the year-round warmth and attentiveness of our staff. And speaking of warmth, you’ll also love the exquisite meals and extensive wine cellar at 275 Main, not to mention fireside drinks and pub fare at our Tracks tavern.

Christmas Carols, Of Course

And here’s the ideal soundtrack for a Pitcher Inn holiday: the Mad River Valley Chorale’s “Concert for the Holidays” on December 10. From 7:30 to 9 PM, your ears (and heartstrings) will be treated to masterworks by Pergolesi, Handel, Rutter, and other composers, brought to life by piano, string quartet, timpani, soprano Mary Bonhag, and 50 area singers (under conductor Arthur Zorn). There’ll be audience participation, too, in the form of some singalong caroling.

“Concert for the Holidays” tickets run $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and students, and free for kids under 11; the Mad River Valley Chorale suggests that attendees, in the spirit of giving, bring along a donation of non-perishable food, too. 

Make Some New Memories

The holidays always come infused with nostalgia. Whether you’re flying solo or bringing the whole family, we hope you’ll make some brand-new Christmas memories right here in the Mad River Valley at The Pitcher Inn.
