From the first time we visited Lareau, we could feel that it is a very special place. When you live in Vermont, you get pretty used to being charmed by adorable old homes, historic barns, sprawling fields, and beautiful views. Even with us being as spoiled as all of that, Lareau struck us as a truly magical and essential “Vermont” place and we knew that we wanted to get married there. In what was undoubtedly the most bizarre and stressful wedding year of our generation, the incredible folks at Lareau allowed my partner and I to have a celebration that felt truly authentic to us, safe, comfortable, and festive. From the initial planning stages, to the re-planning, to the second re-planning, Helen and Dave were communicative, thorough, detail-oriented, and supremely flexible. Helen knows what she is about with wedding planning; she guided us through the process with professionalism and warmth, not missing a beat despite all of the hurdles. On our wedding day, Helen was a subtle guiding presence helping us to stay on track and on schedule with the various components of our celebration. Dave created and executed a beautiful picnic menu for us that our guests gushed about for the rest of the summer. We are so grateful to the both of them, and all of the other staff members at Lareau, for the way in which they make their guests feel welcome, at ease, taken care of, and at home. Lareau is such a special place, and I can’t recommend their inn and event spaces highly enough.

It is difficult to find the right words to describe how absolutely perfect the Lareau Farm Inn and its team of incredible people were for our wedding. When we began looking for a venue we knew we wanted something relaxed, scenic and fun. Lareau Farm is that and so so much more. We planned the wedding from a state away, so our ability to meet in person was very limited. Luckily for us, Lareau has Helen who is their innkeeper and event coordinator. Helen is so kind and so helpful in keeping plans on track and without making it feel overwhelming. What we didn’t know until we actually got there though was that not just Helen but their whole team is absolutely wonderful! They made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. Oh! And the food – the food is AMAZING!! I still dream about the apps. We did a buffet for dinner with chicken and pulled pork, then late night flatbreads to end the night, which was a huge hit with our guests. We are so grateful to have had such an amazing wedding experience. I could go on and on, but ultimately – if you’re thinking this might be the spot for you, I can assure you it is!

When we decided to get married in the Mad River Valley, we immediately knew that we wanted our food to come from Lareau Farm Inn. We have been fans of their flatbread pizzas for years, and we are SO thrilled with the decision to include them on our wedding day. Helen was fantastic to work with and made us so excited for the big day. We booked the mobile oven to cook on location and it was fabulous. Everyone raved about the pizza and salads, as well as the passed apps (my dad still always talks about the bacon-wrapped dates). The entire process was a breeze and the food just felt “like us.” Can’t recommend booking the mobile oven enough!

I love places that are low key and unassuming. At Lareau Farm we just drove up, walked in, took our shoes off like the sign requested, found our key waiting for us in an envelope with instructions on how to find our room and shared bathroom. Granted it was Sunday night and we pretty much had the place to ourselves, but it could not have seemed anymore like home. On top of that, if you're hungry Flatbreads is connected next door so you don't even need to travel for food and drinks. The restaurant was busy but a pleasant stop at the bar with a good beer list solved that short wait. Breakfast (included with the room fee) the next day was wonderful, tasty and home made. Skiing is a very short drive away too. Lareau Farm Inn was all we needed to make for a perfect ski break so I'd highly recommend a Sunday-Monday combo if you want to avoid the crowds.

I had Lareau Farm/Flatbread cater for my husbands surprise 40th party, they were nothing short of amazing! Everything was seamless from booking the date to late night cleanup. I had passed apps and then out came the most delicious Flatbreads (our guests talked about the food for weeks after!) The head baker made it so that I didn’t have to think about anything- they came, set up, served and cleaned up. Having Lareau Farm cater was certainly a treat, now we can’t wait to make it an annual thing! Thank you Lareau Farm!
