The centerpiece of sleepily idyllic Warren village - Sugarbush is two miles away - the Pitcher Inn is an exercise in stealth pampering, with a discreet spa and a superb regional restaurant. All eleven rooms are playfully themed. For an immersion in downhill nostalgia, opt for the Ski room, furnished with artifacts from the Mad River Valley. The bedspread is a patchwork of parkas, the headboard a phalanx of toboggans and a stone fireplace gives the room a warm glow. The perfect ski lodge? It just might be. $375–$600; pitcherinn.com; 802-496-6354
