Spring is a truly magical time, full of the wonder of life and a renewed world as buds grow on trees and grass peeks out from beneath the slowly melting snow. This is the perfect time to start planning your spring getaway in the Mad River Valley! Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, take in the scenery, and enjoy nearby activities with a stay at one of our three conveniently located lodges: Mad River, White Horse, and Warren.
Experience Late-Season Vermont Skiing
There’s still time to catch some skiing in the valley at Mad River Glen and Sugarbush Resort, which offer some of the best skiing in the Northeast. The snow may be a bit softer, but the views are still just as breathtaking! Fewer crowds during the winter season mean you’ll have more time to enjoy the mountain’s stunning scenery and sunny skies. All of our lodges are conveniently located near these ski areas, with Warren being closest to Sugarbush, but all within a reasonable distance of each other.
Feel Energized with Hiking and Biking
Explore the great outdoors in Mad River Valley, home to some of the state’s best hiking and biking trails. The warmer weather makes it the perfect time to explore the valley’s lush forests and rolling hills. Hike to the top of Camel’s Hump for a gorgeous overlook or bike scenic trails on the Mad River Path. Pack a delicious picnic lunch and spend some time among the beauty of nature with a comfy home base to return to after the day’s adventures.
Sample Something Sweet During Maple Sugar Season
Maple syrup is at the heart of the culture here in Vermont, a constant in the region for hundreds of years, and a delicious tradition that you can experience at Mad River Taste Place. They have high-quality maple syrup, and regional honey, as well as cheeses, handcrafted wares, and much more! Stop by to support a local business and take a piece of Vermont home with you. It’s also a great spot to grab supplies for a picnic.
Tour the Best Local Breweries in Mad River Valley
Craft beer aficionados won’t want to miss some of the area’s best breweries during your stay, perfect for some relaxing post-ski après or a refreshing libation after a hike. A few that we recommend nearby include Lawson’s Finest Liquids, dedicated to high-quality brews made with locally sourced ingredients, and the unique Von Trapp, home to Austrian-style brewed beer in the heart of Vermont. Frost Beer Works and Fiddlehead Brewing Company are also excellent places to stop, both part of the famous IPA Highway, and they’re just the thing for hop lovers!
Relax in the Comfort of Our Serene Lodges
When it’s time to retire for the night, all of our lodges offer comfortable accommodations and convenience, with space for every type of group, from smaller lodge rooms to larger family units with full kitchens. We use soft colors, stained wood, and stone fireplaces to create a warm ambiance, offering a true retreat from the demands of everyday life. You can hit the slopes in the morning, come back for lunch, and take a hike in the afternoon or head back out for more skiing. A spring getaway in Mad River Valley is a must for anyone looking to enjoy the area with fewer crowds and wonderfully temperate weather.
