On-site outdoor parking. On private road that is plowed by the town and our plowman regularly during and after storms.
Interaction with Guests
As a bed and breakfast, there is a good deal of interaction with our guests as we live on the property when we operate it as a B&B.
We are close to town for dining, shopping and entertainment, but the property is very private with view of the river, of course, mountains, meadows and a good deal of wildlife. Weather-permitting, cross country skiiing is available on the property as is sledding. Two cross country ski facilities are miles away as is a public ice rink.
During the winter season, a shuttle service to the resorts operates, and our road is on the route that meanders through both Warren and Waitsfield. A car is necessary.
Other Things to Note
Our rates are low because our amenities are not hotel-style. We have both shared and private bathrooms and two American Eskimo dogs so our accommodations and style are both casual and informal. Living areas are common to our guests so if you need a tv in your room, The Farm may not be for you, but our other property, The Overlook, which is walking distance from The Farm, may provide you with more suitable accommodations. You may check its availability with us if you call for a reservation.
We expect our guests to be respectful of each other, and we make a great attempt to provide guests with their privacies to the best of our abilities.
Bryant, the host was perfectly nice. The house is maybe a half mile from the main road, at a dead end. It is VERY isolated, and there is no cell service at the house, though there is wifi. The property is quite lovely, with the Mad River rushing past.
I was not looking for fancy, and this was not. Someone was watching TV until nearly 1 am, I barely got a wink of sleep.
The host said he doesn't actually do breakfast for Air B&B guests, which I hadn't noticed on the website anywhere. I am sorry it didn't work out, pretty location, and host was nice.
This was the perfect place for a ski weekend- we were about 5 minutes from the mountain and very close to a bunch of local bars and places to eat. Bryant is the perfect host! He was flexible with arrival times and overall very accommodating with local recommendations and suggestions. Plus, there were 2 very friendly dogs to greet us when we got in- what more could you want?
Bryant was a kind and generous host! The house is clean and inviting. Would recommend to anyone looking for an affordable option close to Sugarbush Resort.
My stay at the Farm on Mad River was awesome. Bryant and Bill made me feel like a member of the family. The view from the front porch is mesmerizing. I had my coffee there each morning and had a drink there in the evening. Bryant and Bill joined me (or I joined them) there because it was so beautiful. Both Bryant and Bill were helpful--offering local advise--and generous. I arrived late my first day and they invited me to join them for dinner. In fact, it was not the only meal we shared. They were awesome hosts; the property is stunning and they gave me as much privacy as I wanted while being available as well. My bed was comfy and bathroom was clean with plenty of hot water. Really, I could not have asked for a better place to stay. I would highly recommend the Farm at Mad River to anyone. And best of all.....you can swim in the river right at the farm!
