Time to Celebrate Summer!

Summer is here!

Summer in the Mad River Valley has so much to offer. In the area we have the obvious mountain biking and hiking trails, but the valley and 1824 House Inn + Barn offer a whole lot more.

Some people dread the drive to their final destination, but that doesn't have to be the case when coming to stay with us. There are a number of things to do along the journey. Have you had a chance to drive through one of over 100 covered bridges in Vermont? We have 2 of them within a few miles of the Inn. How about a creemee? If you don't know what it is, the best way to find out is to stop and order one as soon as you see a sign, or we have a number of good options here in the valley. How about waterfalls? When you are driving in Vermont, you don't even have to get out of your car, you can spot them on the side of the road. Of course we always recommend you pull over to enjoy them and get at least 1 selfie.

Once you arrive, we have the perfect location to go off and explore some more or just relax and take a moment to "do nothing". With 15 acres, we have a spot for everyone to relax. Some of our guests' favorite options are at our swimming hole on the Mad River, on top of the hill overlooking the valley, by one of our firepits, in one of our comfortable living rooms, and in the barn.

With a full liquor license, you can also enjoy a glass of wine, a cold local brew or a signature cocktail while playing a game of corn hole, horseshoes or table tennis.

Our in room smart TVs also give you a chance to catch up on your binge watching while snuggling into bed.

Wait, did we mention breakfast? We offer a full menu of breakfast options to satisfy every palate, from farm fresh eggs, pancakes, corned beef hash, and homemade granola to our siganture Eggs Benedict. If the smell of bacon doesn't wake you up, we are sure the fresh brewed coffee will.

Are you looking forward to the relaxed travel restrictions this summer? Let us help you plan the perfect Vermont Getaway.

We look forward to seeing you at the Inn

"Beautiful property. Don't miss the swimming hole or the cherry scones."

Usually I stay in hotels, but you guys converted me. Your place was so comfortable. I think if I ran a B&B, I'd do it like you do.
