The past few months have seen the Pitcher Inn given some really nice press coverage, and we thought we’d dedicate today’s blogpost to sharing some snippets. We’re honored to receive such glowing reviews, and we hope they’ll inspire you to come stay with us here in the Mad River Valley—whether it’ll be your very first time, or you’re a regular guest of ours deciding you’re overdue for a return visit!

There’s a big change afoot at one of the famed, long-running ski resorts our Pitcher Inn guests enjoy awesomely easy access to—but you needn’t be worried.
Sugarbush—one of the great ski resorts of the Northeast, and until now one of the last to be independently owned—has been sold to the Colorado-based Alterra Mountain Company, which runs 14 other mountain resorts in six U.S. states and three Canadian provinces, and partners in the management of more than two dozen others around the world. From the looks of things, the sale will ensure Sugarbush will be able to continue its fantastic level of service long into the future.

We’re right at the cusp of our busiest month of the year here at the Pitcher Inn: October sees leaf-peepers from near and far journey here to take in the world-famous autumnal show Vermont puts on.
The fall colors are the blockbuster draw, but there’s plenty of other reason to make a getaway to our luxury Relais & Châteaux hotel here in the Mad River Valley. Here’s an overview of what’s in store for you—bountifully blazing leaves included—this season at the Pitcher Inn!

We’ve got some more exciting developments on the Pitcher Inn culinary front to announce.
Earlier this summer we introduced you to our new executive chef, Jacob Ennis. Already hard at work expressing his fresh and creative vision for our Relais & Châteaux gastronomy, Chef Jacob recently purchased an entire flock of Vermont-raised Pekin Ducks—some 60 birds. That means here at the Pitcher Inn we’re going to be having a bit of a duck fest this month and into the fall and take it from us: You’re going to want to be a part of it!

Today at the Pitcher Inn blog, we’re asking all of our guests and readers to join us in welcoming a brand-new executive chef to the Inn: Jacob Ennis!
Chef Ennis comes to us deeply steeped in the culinary traditions of Relais & Châteaux hospitality: Ours is the seventh R&C property he’s been a part of. As part of an illustrious resume, Chef Ennis has served as executive chef at such restaurants as the Vanderbilt Grace in Newport, Rhode Island, Topper’s Restaurant at The Wauwinet on Nantucket, and Restaurant Aaron and The Blue Room at the Horned Dorset Primavera, an R&C hotel in Rincon, Puerto Rico.

When you stay with us here at the Pitcher Inn, you’re calling home one of the signature landmarks of the Mad River Valley. Just across the street, meanwhile, lies another: the beloved and utterly one-of-a-kind Warren Store.
We love standing face-to-face with the Warren Store, which comes tucked against a charming little waterfall made by Freeman Brook above its mouth in the Mad River. Our Pitcher Inn guests receive a welcome snack mix from the store—“Jack’s Snax,” named after store manager Jack Garvin—and also enjoy the daily batches of baked goods we get from its exceptional bakery, but we also urge you to visit this “almost world famous” (as the tagline goes) neighbor of ours in person. For one thing, Pitcher Inn guests have charge privileges at the Warren Store—but also the place is just magical. Here’s a little snapshot of this long-standing fixture of Main Street, Warren!

The Green Mountain State has become a global destination for craft beer, and our neck of the woods here at the Pitcher Inn happens to be one of modern Vermont brewing’s truly hallowed epicenters.
