What a gem, so well designed, totally cool staff and accomodations were well above our expectations. Food was yummy in the morning and we felt at home with the staff. The bar scene was laid back and fun and the big stone fireplace was romantic.

Heather and Andrew Lynd, the gracious and welcoming owners who have beautifully renovated Mad River Barn, deserve outstanding praise and kudos! The barn retains rustic charm. The rooms are creatively purposeful. The beds are comfortable with nice linens and duvets. The staff are pleasant, helpful and accommodating to all. We recently held a family/friend party and weekend at the inn.... More

My girlfriend and another couple traveled to mad river valley to ski for two days at Sugarbush. A friend recommended we stay at Mad River Barn and we can't wait to go back. As soon as we walked in it had that ski lodge homey feel. Everything was very clean and well kept but it held on to that cabin/rustic... More

We stayed in the Annex and the room was OK but had some issues. I knew that the Annex had not been renovated, so I expected the dated facilities/decor. However, the internet access was poor to non-existent in our room (several in our party tried on different devices and it was too slow to load any page, however bare-bones). There... More

Hi HadleySJ, Thanks for taking the time to write the review. I'm sorry you found our internet connection to be too slow in the Annex. Sometimes it helps when we reset the modem, but since you didn't report the issue to us while you were here, we weren't aware of your concern. Generally, many concerns/issues can be solved, but it...

I rarely write reviews but MRB is very deserving of praise. Our family of four stayed at the annex a few years ago along with a few other families and we vowed never to return. While planning our ski vacation this year we had trouble finding a suitable location for 3 families (6 adults, 6 kids aged 10-16). We found... More

We brought our 3 young sons here for February vacation week to ski Mad River Glen, and we had a great time. Andrew and Heather were excellent hosts. I especially enjoyed the pub (what a hopping apres ski hang out!) and family game room, from the hearth fireplace, to the leather couches, to the Single Chair Ale, to the shuffleboard... More

The new proprietors have done an incredible job of re-inventing the Inn @ Mad River Barn and it was evident everyone was really enjoying the atmosphere and hospitality they've created. The "aprés-ski" scene in the pub was vibey and relaxed, but somehow they pull off kid-friendly at the same time and that's no small feat. The ski conditions were pretty... More

The Barn was always a nicely kept secret for those who wanted to ski the areas Mt.s. We were always welcomed, and really enjoyed our stays, but the old girl was really in need of some updating so we found other locations.
