The Mad River Valley is the perfect place to relax: beautiful scenery year round, no traffic lights, no fast food, and with all restaurants and lodging locally owned and operated. Tranquility awaits you, yet with so many things to do and see! Not to mention the many great restaurant choices close by for an enjoyable dinn
er each evening.
West Hill House is only one mile from Sugarbush skiing, golfing and tennis resort and adjacent to its Robert Trent Jones Sr. championship golf course - and just seven miles from the Mad River Glen co-operatively owned ski area. We're off the beaten path, but close to the center of Warren and Waitsfield with all their restaurants, shopping and artisans, and in the midst of outdoor recreation beyond imagination. It's a great base from which to explore and enjoy all of Central Vermont.
With warm weather hiking, biking, fishing, swimming, canoeing, golf and tennis, soaring, spectacular foliage season autumn colors and wintertime downhill and cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and sleigh riding all nearby, Sugarbush and the Mad River Valley is a great place to visit at any season of the year! And don't forget the month long Vermont Festival of the Arts in August.
Three common rooms and extensive gardens offer the opportunity to relax in comfort while making West Hill House your country home. Catch up on your reading with our 1,000 book library, enjoy a movie from our 500 title collection, brush up on your pool game or relax in the garden.
The gardens at the West Hill House put on a three season display. Our nine peaceful acres with mountain views, meadow, ponds, gardens and woods provide a setting for relaxation and getting away from it all. Put your feet up on our front porch, the canopied back deck or the airy gazebo. Read a book or watch the "critter shows" as birds and chipmunks, deer and an occasional moose entertain you. Winter visitors can ski at or Mad River Glen, which are both just minutes away, or cross-country ski and snowshoe right out of the front door.

The simplest way to get here from almost everywhere except SW Vermont and upstate NY, is to come to exit 9 or 10 on Interstate 89, take Route 100B or 100 respectively towards Waitsfield and Warren, then after you pass through Waitsfield, about 3 miles further south look out for a CITGO gas station on your right followed by a green girder bridge which you cross. Turn right onto the Sugarbush Access Road and drive for 3 miles up to the "T" intersection at the Sugarbush base where you will see the no-entry sign in front of you - the exit from their parking lot.. Turn left onto Inferno Road for one mile which will take you to West Hill Road very close to the Inn. Turn right at the "Y" and you will be right here!
From SW Vermont and upstate NY head for Rutland VT, then take Route 4 east to Route 100 North. Continue on 100 past the turn off to Warren about 2 miles further to the Sugarbush Access Road on your left, then follow the local directions above.
