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.

In the heart of the Mad River Valley

Map of The Round Barn Farm

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
