A fantastic weekend escape!

5 on April 26, 2018

I found West Hill House B and B on this website quite randomly. I had already taken a long weekend away from work and decided to "get away" with my boyfriend. I actually chose this B and B due to the amenities of the room for the price. It was the best decision I could have made! Peter and Susan are not just innkeepers; they are your guides to the best that Warren has to offer! Everything they do is designed to make your stay fantastic. The morning of our booking I received a call from Peter to explain that the weather prediction would not allow for much skiing or hiking. He offered to reschedule our stay at no charge, but we chose to keep our booking. Upon arrival we were greeted first at our car by Peter and then in the mud room by Susan (tip: wear boots and bring slippers) and our tour began. The Inn has more amenities than many larger chain hotels, with a more personal touch. In our room was a handwritten card from Peter and Susan wishing us a relaxing stay. Both nights we found "Warren Vignettes" on our pillow and a pitcher of delicious water with glasses. Susan's breakfast alone was worth the stay. Not only does she prepare a gourmet, multi-course breakfast, everything is locally sourced. We learned where our jam, marmalade, yogurt, and paleo-pancakes came from. (We are classic American carnivores but these pancakes were amazing!) If you want a joyful Warren experience, let Peter and Susan guide you. They mapped our day trip perfectly, suggesting a starting point that made navigating traffic easier, showing us the best places to park, and pointing out local "gems" on our way. I very much look forward to our next stay!

Innkeeper Response

Great Charm and Hospitality

4.6 on April 11, 2018

We stayed at the West Hill Bed and Breakfast for two nights and three days this past weekend and could not have been provided with more beautiful accommodations nor more hospitable hosts. Peter and Susan went out of their way to make us feel welcome and part of their extended family. They have paid attention to every detail as it relates to travelers needs and spared no expense to incorporate local history and Vermont charm into their establishment. The ever present homemade baked goods and coffee or tea were a welcome treat after a day on the slopes. We truly enjoyed their hospitality around the fire at night as we got to know the other guests and recapped the days events before retiring to eloquently appointed rooms. We thank Peter and Susan for sharing their wonderful home and friendship with us and we will be certain to return their soon.

Innkeeper Response
Many thanks for the feedback. We really enjoy the opportunity to talk with our guests when their schedule permits, sharing our love of Vermont. Sitting round the wood fire in the evening is often a real highlight in their stay for our guests, and ourselves!

- Peter (innkeeper & co-owner)


Anniversary trip

4.8 on October 05, 2017

We recently celebrated our anniversary with a stay in the Logan Suite. Peter and Susan were the perfect hosts. Breakfasts were delicious and their suggestions and directions for local sites were excellent. We fell in love with Vermont and would visit again for sure. The property is quiet and beautiful and the surrounding areas are charming and picturesque. We would HIGHLY recommend a stay at West HIll House!


Awesome stay for a Waitsfield wedding!

5 on August 04, 2017

Peter and Susan could not have been better hosts! Breakfast provides a lovely community of friendly guests and delicious local ingredients. Hosts joined us after serving to offer local outing options if needed. Electricity went out in the entire valley while we were getting ready for a family wedding. Because West Hill House has a generator, we had no problem showering, unlike some family members who had rented private homes/ condos with no generator to run the well water pumps. We were very happy with our choice, and do not hesitate to recommend their hospitality! They seem to have thought of everything to make it a comfortable stay! My only suggestion is to provide separate conditioner; shampoo/conditioner combo always leaves my hair in a tangly mess.

So glad we chose to stay at West Hill B & B for our ski vacation. It was close to the ski hills, we had a very comfy bed and the breakfasts were scrumptious.The owners Susan and Peter are very friendly, welcoming and super organized.

Peter is (almost) retired from a 35-year career in the telecommunications industry. Susan has been married to Peter now for almost 33 years and has been involved in many things, including being an historical interpreter in a guest house of similar vintage to our B&B!
