52 Weekend Getaways: Warren, VT

Country fare.

| Boston Magazine |

Sure, Vermont has a ton of farms and food producers, but not all of the state is fruit stands and pick-your-own produce. Far from it: For a decidedly refined culinary expedition, hole up at Warren’s Pitcher Inn, where a world-class wine list and a tony dining room await. Staying there also puts you within striking distance of Hen of the Wood in Waterbury, where chef Eric Warnstedt creates stunning dishes from local meats, vegetables, and cheeses. Meanwhile, he’s also one of the forces behind spectacular al fresco dining events (like the one pictured). How ’bout them apples?
