What People Are Saying About the Pitcher Inn
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!
Here’s a look at what’s being said about our luxurious Relais & Châteaux property in charming Warren, Vermont.
The Boston Globe (January 2020): “First Solo Trip? First Time Abroad? Here’s How to Make the Most of Your Maiden Voyages”
This globe-spanning roundup of travel destinations and advice for first-time travelers included plenty of praise for the Pitcher Inn. “Each guest room is designed with a theme, so you can pick one that suits your style, say Lodge, Ski, or Mountain,” Diane Blair and Pamela Wright write. “The wildly Instagrammable ‘Trout’ has trees and river rocks. Fourteen wood-burning fireplaces—in all but two guest rooms—raise the romantic quotient and allow for DIY S’mores-making in your room.”
The article also plugs Pitcher Inn Chef Jacob Ennis’s “hearty and delicious” cuisine, noting it’ll help keep your engines going for outdoor recreation up on the slopes of Sugarbush and in the Green Mountain National Forest “at the inn’s back door.”
SFGate (September 2019): “Town & Country: Romantic Weekend Getaways in New England”
Writing in this San Francisco Chronicle site, Maggie Maloney describes the Pitcher Inn as “a cozy and charming retreat perfect for a romantic escape”—agreed! She notes our property’s proximity to diverse year-round activities in and around the Mad River Valley, and also sings the praises of our fine-dining restaurant: “The intimate dining room features a delicious menu inspired by French and Italian cuisine, with an impressive wine cellar containing nearly 500 bottles that has been honored by Wine Spectator.”
Eater Montreal (January 2020): “Nine Places to Eat & Drink in Vermont’s Mad River Valley”
Heather Platt calls the Pitcher Inn” a stunning 11-bedroom inn that boasts the area’s most luxurious accommodations.” Once again, our on-site gastronomy gets a major shout-out. “An award-winning wine selection and craft cocktail programs pairs well with Chef Jacob Ennis’ creative cooking (he regularly uses the dining room’s fireplace to roast ingredients, for example),” Platt writes.
Seven Days (November 2019): “Seven Places in Vermont to Eat & Drink by a Fireplace”
Jordan Barry (who co-wrote this article with Sally Pollak) swung by our Pitcher Inn tavern Tracks for a meal and extolled the warm Green Mountain ambience. “Tracks feels like the living room of a classic Vermont ski lodge—complete, of course, with a massive stone fireplace.” Chef Ennis’s Duck Confit Cassoulet checked out as well: “The rich stew of beans, pearl onions, and whole baby carrots had a piece of duck on top with crispy skin that yielded to fork-tender meat.” Hungry yet?
