We had an amazing time, Luc was very nice and the breakfast is delicious. The place is very authentic and relaxing, our room was confortable and clean. We had a horse ride at the Icelandic Farm with Karen which was a great experience and we would definitely come back!!!

From the moment we arrived at the Mad River Inn, we felt wecome and comfortable. Rooms were quaint, as a B & B should be and had a/c units. We had chosen a package that included all meals and Icelandic horseback riding for several days. Meals were prepared by the inn keeper, Luc, and the stable was run by his... More

Perfect stop on a beautiful drive. Not much around here, but your needs will be well taken care of at the Inn. The room was nice, and very reasonably priced. The restaurant was amazing. Both dinner and breakfast were marvelous. Great drink selection with a full bar as well. We also enjoyed the shuffleboard table, and other games. Just took... More

My husband and I stayed here at the Mad Horse about two weeks ago on our annual ski trip - our first in the East, and our first stay at a bed & breakfast. We were initially skeptical of staying at a B&B, just due to the communal feel and nature of it, as we have always enjoyed the anonymity... More

Luc was very helpful right from the start, when he picked up the phone at 10:30pm and allowed the four of us to stay for the night without any sort of reservation or prior notice, which was a lifesaver for procrastinators such as us! He also went out of his way to drive with us to the ski mountain so... More

We stayed here in early March of 2015 and had a delightful time. Luc and his wife are very hospitable and cannot do enough for you. The place is warm, cozy, and nicely appointed. Fresh cookies and tea and an incredibly clean and refreshingly hot, hot tub await you upon your return from the ski day. The location is adjacent... More

We live in Vermont so just like to find a place nearby to easily get away. We like CLEAN, quiet, roomy, to be left alone when we want alone, and polite/professional. Mad River Inn turned out to be really great. At first we thought we might have made a bad choice since the room was smaller than we might have... More

Mad River Inn holds a special place in mine and my wife's hearts. We have been repeat visitors in the ski season with Luc and his family because we know that every time we go that we'll have a great experience, consistently. We've stayed in almost all of the rooms in the inn and they are always cozy, comfortable and... More

My girlfriend (now fiancé) and I have stayed here the past couple of skiing seasons. Luc always makes us feel welcome. He makes eye-popping and delicious breakfasts! We enjoy staying in different rooms with each visit as they are each unique. My fiancé and I enjoy using the hot tub after a full day of skiing at sugarbush and shooting... More

My husband and I spent 5 nights at this inn during the Fall Foliage season as part of a combination driving tour and horseback riding vacation. We loved every minute of it. The inn was part of a package we purchased which included riding at the Vermont Icelandic Horse Farm (run by the same family). We also booked lodging at... More
