Very friendly owners and staff, extremely comfortable beds, great atmosphere and good food.

I have been coming to the Barn for the past 4 years. We can not say enough positive things about the Mad River Barn. As a family of five looking for a genuine Vermont ski experience, this place has delivered year after year. The staff, services, food and rooms are everything we could ask for. We make at least three...

The restaurant and pub offer a decent menu with some interesting selections and basic fare. Wine list is small and pricey. The place gets busy early and reservations are a must. Service was good and very fast - in fact our food wound arrive within minutes of ordering it.

We booked a 4 night stay at the Mad River Barn with 4 other families. We stayed in the Anex, which is a separate building about 100 yards from the main inn and restaurant. The room was setup with a queen bed and a bunk bed. No amenities: no coffee maker, no dressers, ridiculously small table, nowhere to set suitcases...

Hi Tom, Thank you for your review. In the four years we’ve owned the Mad River Barn, we’ve had the opportunity to meet wonderful families. We’ve made great friends. Unfortunately, our experience with your group was very challenging. You were upset with us when you were charged a cake plating fee for an outside sheet cake that you brought into...

Just stayed at the Barn for 5 days with three friends from work. We had two rooms and they were both comfortable and clean. This place is 5 mins from Sugarbush and less than that to Mad River Glen. After a great breakfast in the restaurant, headed out skiing for the day. Returning to the Barn, we would relax and...

We spent a night of winter vacation week at Mad River Barn, got the last room available and packed 2 adults and 2 kids into one room. Luckily it was spacious and we were fine, though we forgot the sleeping bag we planned to use for the big kid so she slept on a pile of blankets (they had told...

This was my 3rd stay at MRB and it continues to impress me. The staff are super friendly and helpful and there's a very relaxed vibe. Bedding configurations vary but all the rooms in the renovated barn building, are beautifully done using recycled material - very cool. You won't find any floral chintz here! Beds are comfy and rooms very...

We stayed here the second weekend in December for 2 nights with family. There were 5 adults and 2 children (ages 3.5 & 1.5). We stayed in room B4 in the main building.

This place is just amazing! The bedding is comfortable, the decorations are stylish with farmhouse flare that totally suits the building and surroundings. I would recommend this place to anyone. The owners are lovely too. You can tell they really love and care for this place.
