MRB is a family-owned and operated business run by Andrew and Heather. Approximately 45-50 family and friends stayed here for my daughter's destination wedding over a 4-5 day period, so we really got a chance to know how the Inn operates and treats its guests. There are too many superlatives to mention. Everything from wonderful breakfasts cooked to order (including... More

Spent a weekend at the end with a group of friends on our way to the Vermont Cheese festival. Owners Heather and Andy were always present tending to guests and so very helpful to us providing directions and recommendations for restaurants (though we enjoyed the restaurant at the barn most). They recently bought the Inn and created a cool hip... More

I'm not generally a 5-star reviewer, but new owners Andrew and Heather got everything right in their renovation of this inn. The rooms are inviting, clean and beautifully decorated with a modern flair. Recycled materials have been re-purposed throughout the inn (loved the recycled pipe joints as toilet paper holders, the old doors and flooring planks refashioned as tables, and... More

Two friends and I stayed here this past weekend when we were in town for a wedding. Having never been to Vermont, we weren't really sure what to expect, and my expectations were blown out of the water! The rooms were very comfortable, we had a suite with one queen bed and 4 twin beds. The decor was very modern,... More

Couldn't find a place to review the restaurant but feel compelled to recommend the restaurant. Didn't stay at the Inn. We recently had a family reunion in the Sugarbush Valley and enjoyed a really great meal on our last evening in Vermont. Our family was seated on the rear deck in such a lovely setting. Wish we had discovered this... More

I stayed here for 2 nights because I had a wedding to go to in the area. I wasn't expecting anything, but was pleasantly surprised. The room was a good size and very clean. It was obvious it had been recently renovated, and has a very modern, minimalist look. It made great use of the space and had very convenient... More

Happy you had a great stay with us. The renovations were quite a big deal, and it really means a lot to hear how much you liked the decor. Thanks for the feedback on the overhead light, too -- we're always looking for ways to perfect the rooms. Ready to make you another omelet! Heather L., Owner More

What a Vermont adventure!! I brought 2 of my daughters home to Vermont to visit family and originally booked the Patience room at Lareau Farm. It was horrible at Lareau...mold growing in the paint, broken window, mosquitos in the room, ants in the beds, and an innkeeper with an attitude problem. So, after finding the Mad River Barn online at... More
