Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Gorgeous, expansive property with ponds and rolling green hills
  • Spacious, clean rooms with comfortable beds and fireplaces
  • Charming dining room with excellent home-cooked food
  • Game room with a pool table and library
  • Small indoor pool (a B&B rarity in Vermont)
  • Free snowshoe and cross-country ski passes at local ski center
  • Certified green hotel; plenty of eco-friendly practices
  • Freebies include breakfast, parking, Wi-Fi, and hors d'oeuvres
  • Within a 20-minute drive to 2 ski resorts

Cons

  • Indoor pool is narrow with little seating space around it
  • Most bathrooms are cramped
  • Soom rooms have tiny walk-in showers only

Bottom Line

The Inn at the Round Barn Farm has a serene location with more than 245 acres of rolling green hills in every direction. It has a decidedly romantic ambiance, with rooms that have Jacuzzi tubs and/or working fireplaces. Unfortunately, bathrooms are small throughout, and many rooms have showers only. Having a small indoor pool and fitness center (though technically it's only a few cardio machines) is a true B&B rarity in these parts, but the real draws here are the peaceful ambiance, romantic and cozy experience, incredible views, and fresh air.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the heart of the Mad River Valley

The Round Barn Farm has a truly serene location, well off the beaten path, tucked into the green hills of Vermont. There are two popular ski resorts nearby, and there are plenty of shops and stores that cater to visitors. The inn is in the heart of the Mad River Valley, an outdoorsman's paradise with hiking, skiing, hunting, canoeing, and golfing options aplenty. Its central location makes getting to shopping and sights around Vermont somewhat easier, but most things not related to nearby Sugarbush Resort are close to an hour's drive away.

  • 55-minute drive to Burlington International Airport
  • 15-minute drive to skiing at Mad River Glen
  • 19-minute drive to Sugarbush Ski and Golf Resort
  • 34-minute drive to Montpelier
  • 44-minute drive to outlet shopping in Barre
  • 1-hour drive to the Shelburne Museum

 Bottom Line

The Inn at the Round Barn Farm has a serene location with more than 245 acres of rolling green hills in every direction. It has a decidedly romantic ambiance, with rooms that have Jacuzzi tubs and/or working fireplaces. Unfortunately, bathrooms are small throughout, and many rooms have showers only.
