This was a great place to stay during a recent family gathering. The Owners and staff were exceptional at our every need. The rooms were very clean and modern with plenty of rustic re-purposed charm. We spent a full Friday - Sunday there and we loved the atmosphere (very Lively) with a great pub/game room area for the whole extended... More

We really appreciate the Mad River Barn accomodating us at the very last minute a few weeks ago. We were booked at another inn, checked in and decided it was too terrible to stay. A quick internet search and we found the Barn. Fortunately they had a room available and we had a wonderful weekend stay. The room was spacious,... More

I had called them to ask about the possibility of leaving a car there and getting shuttled up to the ridge. Heather and Andrew were awesome and helped us out! We had... More

There aren't enough good things to say about the Mad River Barn! Delicious food, wonderfully comfortable rooms and grounds, and great people all around.

Recently renovated, this iconic ski lodge/restaurant that has served the Mad River ski slopes for years has made all the right moves to update itself and yet maintain a clear connection to its roots - skiing and Vermont lifestyle. Summer midweek rates were great and the room had the clean spare minimalism so popular now, with just the right amount... More
