Above your bed is a blackboard covered with algebraic formulas. In another suite, a chessboard painted on an antique chest invites you to enjoy a strategic duel by the fireside. The walls of the library are lined with beautiful books. Set among Vermont’s Green Mountains, The Pitcher Inn is a delightfully elegant hotel in which each room has a Vermont theme but has been designed and decorated to be distinctly different. Intellectual curiosity is celebrated here, as is culinary excellence, with a delicious menu influenced by French and Italian cuisine. There are also in-room massages and sports activities on offer at the nearby Sugarbush ski and golf resort.
