The Experience

The Pitcher Inn

Located in the picturesque New England Village of Warren, at the foot of Sugarbush ski and golf resort, The Pitcher Inn provides its guests with the very best of Vermont tradition year-round.  Each of the four seasons holds a special joy and distinctive feel at the inn.  Envision Spring when wildflowers dot the rolling landscape,  Summer when stars light up the night sky, Fall when the countryside’s foliage has been painted an array of colors or Winter when we are blanketed in snow.  A special magic swirls in the air year-round and your special wishes are our commands.

The Pitcher Inn was recreated after a fire in 1993 burnt the original 1800s structure to the ground. Under the careful direction of David Sellers and a team of architects, The Pitcher Inn was intentionally recreated by a nostalgia mirroring Vermont’s beauty and simplicity, whilst still remaining true to the original structure. Hence the Inn’s nine rooms and two suites are each an adventure in the state’s history. In addition, now a member of Relais & Chateaux, the Inn’s philosophy emphasizes the 5 Cs: calm, cuisine, character, charm and courtesy. The Pitcher Inn’s eleven rooms are patterned to reflect the individual designers’ interpretation of a particular Vermont theme. From the whimsical to the classical, each room is a spectacular display of talent and taste lavishly manifested in unique motifs.

The Pitcher Inn has a total of eleven whimsical rooms and suites, of which nine are unique double-occupancy rooms located in the main house and two are two bedroom suites, situated in the barn which is adjacent to the main house. Excluding extra beds, we can accommodate 13 couples or 26 people at the Inn. For exclusive use and house party events, with extra beds and pull out sofa beds, thisnumber can be increased to 33 guests. Each room was designed and decorated to be distinctly different but with a common Vermont theme. Appointed with original art, memorabilia and antiques, the guest rooms provide a comfortable and subtly luxurious atmosphere. All rooms feature individual air-climate controls, three line telephones with DSL data port and Wi-Fi access, CD music player and concealed television with VHS player. In addition, all private baths have Jacuzzi tubs and radiant floor heating. Some rooms also offer steam showers and the majority have wood burning fireplaces and king beds.

The two suites are known as “Stable” and “Hayloft”. These are located in a barn next to the main house and are ideal for the traveling family or two couples. Stable is a two-bedroom suite, located on the lower level of the barn. The master bedroom has a king size bed, while the second bedroom has two twin beds with each bedroom having private ensuite bathrooms. There is a living room with acomfortable seating area and a view of the garden. True to its name, Stable is decorated with bridles, saddles and equipment that usually can be found in a stable. Decorated with antique barn supplies, Hayloft is located up-stairs, on the second level of the barn and features two identically sized king bedrooms with a common living room separating them.

The Pitcher Inn aims to provide guests with ample opportunity and variety to enjoy the pleasures of the table. As a member of Vermont Fresh Network, the Inn is committed to using the freshest local and regional ingredients which allows our Executive Chef, Sue Schickler, to change the menus seasonally as well as introducing special dishes based on that day’s market’s bounty. Vermont raised lamb, quail and rabbit, organic heirloom tomatoes, local free range eggs, artisanal cheeses and seafood from the country’s finest purveyors provide the culinary team with ample materials to create superlative meals. In addition, all breakfast goods are baked daily on the premises as well as delectables for afternoon tea, served in the Library.

The Main Dining Room has an à la carte dinner menu emphasizing quality ingredients and culinary mastery, drawing inspiration beyond Vermont from France, Italy and the Pacific Rim. Tracks, our lounge, offers a small plate dinner menu and cocktails, ideal for something a little more casual whilst perhaps playing a game of pool or shuffle board in the Maple Room or just enjoying the warmth of an open fire. For Private Dining, we offer the Wine Cellar for tasting menus up to six people or the Brook Room for larger parties up to 30.

Dinner reservations for the Dining Room and the Wine Cellar are recommended prior to your arrival; please advise us upon confirmation of your reservation your preferred time as well as any special dietary requirements. The Dining Room, Tracks and the Wine Cellar are closed on Tuesday evenings and we would be delighted to assist with local recommendations.

The Pitcher Inn is the perfect haven for your corporate retreat, sales meeting or annual board meeting. We have an on-site meeting coordinator to tailor-make your time with us to be productive, effective, relaxing and rewarding. We can accommodate up to 11 guests in private rooms, 13 if four are willing share the 2 -bedroom/2 -bath luxurious suites, Hayloft and Stable.

Near the base of the historic Sugarbush Ski Resort, The Pitcher Inn, Member of Relais & Châteaux, exudes the charm of a Norman Rockwell painting. Each of the 11 eclectic, well-appointed guestrooms and suites reflects a different theme — the Chester Arthur room, for example, pays homage to the Vermont-born twenty-first U.S. president, while the School Room features a vintage slate chalkboard, globe and other schoolhouse antiques. Locally raised lamb and quail, market-fresh produce and home-baked goods grace the seasonal dinner table, all complemented by an award-winning wine list. And a relaxing massage can easily be arranged.
