My wife and I have come to realise that we value people as much as we value places, and Andrew and Heather did not disappoint. Charming and welcoming, Andrew gave us a tour of the main building and longhouse, and took the time to explain the history of the MRB. Our room was perfect, the food and experience in the... More

Let me preface this review by saying that I fully expect the owners to respond aggressively, based on their behavior this past weekend and their responses to other reviews on here. My husband and I booked a room in the part of the annex that has yet to be renovated. It does say online that the annex room we got... More

Heather, Thank you for your review. You and your husband stayed with us last weekend in one of our Annex rooms. When your husband told us he would be leaving a negative TripAdvisor review if we didn't discount his room rate, we responded the best way we knew how: with facts. We confirmed that he was aware when he made... More

I quite literally just got home from Vermont, and had to write this review. I cannot write how amazed I was at this inn. It was impeccably clean, the grounds were gorgeous, the building was incredible, the food was astounding, the staff were beyond caring, and the bartenders were so much fun to be around! The bartender, Jerry, is the... More

We stayed this weekend in the newly renovated Longhouse and it's beautiful! Our suite had a large master bedroom and separate room with 2 bunk beds. Dinner at the Inn was delicious and they have a great selection of local beers. Can't wait to go back

Last week I spent 4 nights at the Barn. It was my second year in a row and I'm sure I'll be back yet again. Andrew and Heather were both so hospitable and friendly. The food was all delicious. I had an open faced turkey sandwich that was like a thanksgiving feast all put together. They have a great craft... More

Stayed here for a night last weekend while in town visiting family. The owners (Heather and Andrew) are nice and super accommodating. The staff are friendly and attentive as well. We stayed in the B5 barn room, which is on the 2nd floor and has great views of the property, including the fire pit. The bed was super comfortable and... More

The beet salad was excellent and the chicken entree very good. I loved the decor. Was my first time going and I can't wait to go again. Felt it was little expensive but was worth the money in my opinion

This is an incredibly long overdue review! The Mad River Barn is so perfect, I don't even know where to start. We got married in the area in September, and reserved the entire MRB as our base for the wedding weekend for us and family and friends. We could not have chosen a more perfect inn -- Andrew and Heather... More

Our stay at the Barn was awesome! The food is incredible and the ambiance in the pub is great! Good beer also. We stayed in the annex which is outdated but very clean. We are told the annex will be renovated in the near future but the parts of the barn that have been renovated are great. A rustic feel... More

Thanks Nicole and Matt! We really appreciate this awesome review, and we look forward to having you back! We start renovation of the Annex on Monday :) The four units on the left side will be completed this year, leaving four more to tackle next year if all goes well. We'll post pictures to our Facebook page as work progresses.... More
