Adam is very friendly and helpful. The rooms in the longhouse are newly remodeled and decorated chic but rustic. Our room had 4 huge bunks and a queen bed. The bunks are big enough for large adults and very comfortable. The pub was perfect to hang out at night with a bar area and an adjacent game room, you can... More

Went to MRB for a wedding this weekend. Rooms were clean and newly remodeled, the staff was very friendly and helpful and the bar was well stocked and well run. They even had Heady Topper beer!.. Breakfast was buffet style, ample food and coffee and very well prepare. The rehearsal dinner was great. I'd recommend it highly

We stayed four nights at the and River Inn while exploring Vermont. It was a great place to come back to after an active day. We stayed in the barn in a room with a separate loft sleeping area. It was perfect for our 14 yr old daughter. Just enough space and privacy to keep us all out of each... More

Something for everyone at this barn :) Adam is helpful and friendly. My son enjoyed the air hockey and table soccer games. The spacious grounds are gorgeous. There is a wonderful roomy pub upstairs with delicious soup. Decorated so quaint. Our room was comfortable clean and cozy. Close to town but feels away from it all. The owners are doing... More

Amazing location, wonderful, friendly staff and delicious meals, all under one roof! We felt like we were special guests, as I suspect everyone there did. It's comforting to be so welcomed and your every need attended to. We enjoyed Heather and Andy so much and appreciate their attention to detail. We have stayed in a lot of B&B's, so we... More

We stayed only one night but I wish we could have stayed for a week. The atmosphere was lovely start to finish. The staff were all extremely friendly and welcoming and the building and surroundings were great. We enjoyed the bar, restaurant (food was incredible!) and free games facilities too which was a great bonus. I could go on.. But... More

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
