We visit the beautiful Waitsfield area every year (since the late 90's) and always stay at the Mad River Inn. Casual and picturesque, the inn and its surroudings are idyllic. The breakfasts are delicious and served on the back porch which offers a great view of the farmland and mountains. The bedrooms are inviting and very comfortable. A great place...

This is the place to visit to enjoy the Vermont scenery along route 100. Enjoy a view of the cornfield rather than a parking lot view elsewhere. Tasty breakfasts can be enjoyed out on the back porch. Listen to the birds sing & catch a glimpse of a hummingbird. Cookies & tea in the afternoon. Bathroom small as you would...

The Mad River Inn is just outside Waitsfield in a beatiful old Victorian house with great views of growing crops and the Green Mountains. It has a roomy enclosed front porch, a large living room and dining room plus a back porch with a wonderful view where breakfast is served, weather permitting. There is a large lawn with a gazebo...

We had a great getaway vacation and picked this B&B out among others not having ever been to the area. The location is great, there is much to see and do in all directions. The only thing that was difficult was the "open atmosphere of trust." We're used to locking our room and were told that generally folks just leave...

My husband Mark planned this vacation. He couldn't have picked a better place! Our bed was so comfortable, we slept soundly every night! The food was delicious. I would just suggest more protein. If you love crepes.....get ready because I have never eaten anything as incredible as Luke's crepes! And the surroundings are so blessedly peaceful and gorgeous with mountains...

I had a wonderful stay at the scenic Mad River Inn. The inn is old and charming with spacious rooms furnished with antiques and landscaped gardens. The rooms were clean and well appointed. I am happy to note that the Inn provides FREE WiFi while many large chain hotels do not. The innkeepers, Luke and Karen were very hospitable as...

Very comfortable Bed and Breakfast and it felt like home. Luke & Karen were excellent hosts and the food was amazing. The experience of trail riding the Icelandic horses was great. I would love to go again.

Quaint, clean, comfortable Bed & Breakfast with wonderful hosts Luke & Karen. Breakfast was amazing every day. We could not have felt more welcome and at home. Trail riding the Icelandic horses was an experience also that you should try if your are a horse person. We really enjoyed touring the towns and area around the inn.

Innkeeper and chef extraordinaire, Luke, runs this quaint VT B&B like a maestro. His breakfasts are amazing, creative and worth the stay alone. Add in three adorable pups, a short trip to the family Icelandic horse farm (to see and ride these beauties) and you have the perfect non-ski getaway in the beautiful countryside.
