    I know you have not redone the annex yet, but we were staying in room A7, and the bathroom door wouldn't even close, the window had HUGE cracks in it, and we aren't even spared a box if tissues or a clock. The food is amazing (and a little over priced), but for around $200 a night it could've been... More

    Thanks Cayley for the review. We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed the food, and that you thought the beds were comfortable. Although we haven't yet renovated the Annex, we did replace all the Queen mattresses this year (they are the same as those in the Barn), and we have had very positive feedback about those.We will be renovating the left...

    Based on the description, we were prepared for a "somewhat dated" room in the annex but were very disappointed that it boarded on disrepair. Large cracks in the wall, very very loud plumbing, a front door that wouldn't latch/lock from the outside, and we could understand the conversations of the family above us. Dinner was very good, however the staff... More

    For the benefit of those reading this review, I'll clarify a few points: 1) This guest booked a room in the Annex. As our website notes, this is the building we have not yet had the chance to renovate. The website includes pictures which very accurately depict the rooms, as it's in nobody's interests to have unmet expectations. We're very... More

    Have now stayed at the barn twice (in the last 2 weeks). Its a great spot. First weekend was with our kids and some friends with kids. Between us we split three rooms- parents each had a room, and 4 kids shared. Perfect place for families- kids can walk back and forth from their rooms to the game room while... More

    First time here, we will absolutely be back. We stayed in the main house, and our room was "rustic farmhouse" with lovely attention to detail & design. Terrific breakfast in the a.m. and very romantic.

    We stayed at the Mad River Barn this past weekend, and really loved it! The rooms are simple, yet sweet; and the beds are extremely comfortable. Great shower with built in bath gel, shampoo and conditioner dispensers. All natural and re-purposed furnishings and adornments. (The bathroom had Meyers lemon pump hand soap!) The restaurant is also simply furnished. The food... More
