Pitcher Inn Named A Top Spring Break Destination
We’re not sure our (awesome) state of Vermont is the first place people think of for spring break: Tropical beaches, plentiful palms, and epic pool parties aren’t exactly our stock-in-trade. That said, our neck of the woods is pretty darn fantastic this time of year, and as it happens it recently got a high-profile shout-out as a spring-break destination—and so did the Pitcher Inn itself!
We’re referring to a writeup in Marie Claire last month by Sara Holzman, titled “The Best Spring Break Destinations We Want to Visit ASAP.” The Mad River Valley is one of them, alongside such farflung counterparts as Santa Barbara, California; Palm Beach, Florida; Jackson Hole, Wyoming; Vieques, Puerto Rico; and Mexico’s Isla Holbox. Sounds like pretty good company to us!
The Pitcher Inn as Your Spring Break Headquarters
In Marie Claire, Holzman calls us “the super cute Pitcher Inn,” which far be it from us to disagree with. She talks up our rustically elegant accommodations as well as our proximity to topnotch spring skiing at Mad River Glen and Sugarbush, for which we’re “an awesome base camp.” (Again, we’re not going to argue with her.)
We were also honored to have our on-site dining at 275 Main and Tracks given a nod in the article: Holzman aptly described Pitcher Inn cuisine as “a sophisticated farm-to-table menu prepared with fresh, homegrown ingredients.” Come taste the springtime bounty (and raise a glass) with us!
Mad River Valley Fun on a Spring-Break Getaway
We thought Holzman’s Marie Claire profile did a good job spotlighting some of the other fine attractions in our Mad River Valley this time of year, besides the luxury Relais & Châteaux hospitality and gastronomy on tap here at the Pitcher Inn and the spring slopes of our top-rated ski resorts. The Warren Store just across the street from us also gets a name check: It’s a fantastic Main Street landmark we’re proud to call our neighbor and partner—and, as it happens, which we recently highlighted here at the Pitcher Inn blog.
The Marie Claire feature also talked up “the bevy of maple sugarhouses located near the Pitcher Inn,” those venerable syrup-boiling shacks still in seasonal operation right now, as well as local breweries (such as Lawson’s Finest Liquids) and eateries.
Make it a Mad River Valley Spring Break at the Pitcher Inn
We’re very appreciative of the Marie Claire article, and if it doesn’t lure you instead to the Tetons or the Yucatan coast for a spring getaway, we’d like to lure you right here to the Pitcher Inn in Vermont’s spectacular and action-packed Mad River Valley!
