What an excellent bed and breakfast find! Wonderful accomodations with a great host! We stayed at this beautiful b&b with 7 other couples/friends over President's Day Weekend. It was within great driving distance to Sugarbush and Mad River for skiing and lots of local restaurants, shopping, and other outdoor activities. Great prices, AMAZING breakfasts, and overall peaceful and delightful ambiance.... More

6 of us signed up for a week long riding holiday at the Vermont Icelandic Horse Farm. Some of us were in single rooms, others in doubles. The rooms were very well furnished with super comfortable beds. Showers were great which is not always the case in older homes like this one. Top notch meals,gourmet, prepared by Luc. The breakfasts... More

I love this inn and I love that it also runs the Vermont Icelandic Horse Farm. I have been coming here almost every year and each time it is an amazing time. The Inn is beautiful and the rooms are excellent. Luc (the inn owner/manager) makes the most incredible breakfasts and is always so accommodating. We stay and relax here,... More

We found this place with the invaluable assistance of the two nice ladies at the Montpelier visitors centre. What a stroke of luck it turned out to be. Off a main(ish) route and 300 yards down a quite road we just knew it was what we had been looking for. Very isolated. This was backed-up as soon as we walked... More

I have visited this place for a weekend with my girlfriend in order to do some hiking and horse riding in the area. Luc(our host) was very pleasant and flexible - we had a slight change of plans and had to arrive really late (3 A.M.), but it was not an issue at all. There were even cookies waiting for... More

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
