Sugarbush Resort, Vermont- Be Better Here

Nestled in the Mad River Valley of Warren, VT is one of New England’s premier skiing destinations,  Sugarbush Resort . We made a recent visit to enjoy a few days of skiing and the other amenities the resort had to offer. After making an evening drive up from Boston, the first thing we were ready to do when we arrived was eat. We had a fantastic dinner in the Timbers Restaurant, which is part of the resort property and also serves breakfast and lunch. We highly recommend the lamb stew. For accommodations we stayed in one of the Clay Brook Studios. The resort itself was tastefully designed to mirror Vermont farmhouse architecture. These rooms were as good as it gets for slopeside accommodations. Our studio was equipped with a large bedroom, full kitchen and living area, huge bathroom with a jetted tub, and our own balcony. It actually had the feel of a condo. These rooms were recently remodeled and the craftsmanship and attention to detail was apparent.

When we walked into the lobby, our noses perked up and taste buds started dancing with the cornucopia of tea aromas. The lounge setting of the restaurant was both luxurious and modern. We were greeted by a hostess who took us to our white tablecloth setting with beautiful Wedgwood china. The waiter provided us a large sampling of different black and green teas to choose from, all of which have been imported from London. Once we made our selections, the waiter came back over and served our tea selections in our own individual Wedgwood teapots. Our meal was similar to that of a prix fixe menu, with the opportunity for add-ons upon request. As part of the experience we were provided an array of delicious finger sandwiches which were quite filling. However we
