Ski enthusiasts and nature-lovers abound in Warren, Vermont, located in the Mad River Valley amid the state's famed Green Mountains. The mountains are the main draw, and the area's near quite a few ski areas, including the popular Sugarbush ski and golf resort, spread over two mountain areas and a whole host of trails and lodgings.
There's also the skier-owned Mad River Glen Cooperative in nearby Waitsfield, if you're looking for an alternative to big ski resorts, and lots of skiing within a reasonable distance if you want a change of scenery (Killington, for instance, is just an hour's drive from Warren).
Of course, Warren and its surrounding area has more to offer than just ski slopes. The Warren Store, a former 19th century stagecoach stop and inn, now sells food, gifts, and vintage candies, plus they've got a cute clothing selection upstairs. Nearby Waitsfield has the Bundy Modern, a mid-century art gallery and museum in a unique architectural space. Eateries of note include American Flatbread in Waitsfield, a working farm where you can eat wood-fired, oven-baked pizzas; and the Hyde Away Inn & Restaurant, which serves locally-sourced ingredients.
And, of course, there's the real estate in the area, which includes the three-bedroom, three-bath ski house at 614 Upper Village Rd. in Warren, now on the market for $775,000. The house sits close to the trails at Lincoln Peak, Sugarbush's most popular ski mountain. It has an open living space with vaulted ceilings, and massive windows with mountain views.
The dining area has wall-to-ceiling views of the wraparound deck.
