What do you get when you place a round barn from the Shaker era on 245 acres of woods and meadows? An ideal backdrop for a quaint New England bed-and-breakfast. The Inn at Round Barn Farm was built around a barn house that boasts a spot in the National Register of Historic Places, to serve as a quiet country getaway. Now a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, it’s become a beloved destination for visitors from all over the States, offering elegant rooms and a restful, rural ambience.
When you’re not feasting on what the inn has cooked up that morning – savory egg strata, perhaps, or cottage-cheese pancakes – you’ll be enjoying this atmosphere for yourself. There are exhibits and events by the on-site Green Mountain Cultural Center, as well as a laid-back game room, greenhouse and indoor lap pool. Visit these, or rove the grounds, now housing landscaped flower and organic-vegetable gardens. You’ll have a rustic retreat regardless – that’s just what makes this bed-and-breakfast go round.
Rooms at the inn are individually decorated in a rustic style, to a high standard. They’re among many reasons that this B&B consistently receives glowing five-star reviews and rarely anything less. Each one comes with a Tempur-Pedic bed, dressed in plush linens and topped with a down comforter. You’ll also have a unique view.In addition to their queen-sized bed, Standard Queen rooms also contain an en-suite bathroom with a tub/shower combination. Some of these charming rooms also come with a decorative gas stove. The larger Luxury King rooms, meanwhile, have whirlpool tubs in their en-suite bathroom, and some also offer steam showers.
Come winter, summer or anytime in between, the property is a charming setting for leisure and cultural activities, boasting a game room stocked with popcorn and movies, as well as the Green Mountain Cultural Center. The latter resides in the round barn and offers regular events, such as photography exhibitions. Surrounding Waitsfield was included in Outside magazine’s list of best towns several years ago and offers charming restaurants, bike trails and fantastic skiing (also singled out for praise by Outside). The Mad River Valley is a Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places, there are streams and swimming holes, and the area even houses an Icelandic horse farm.
How to Get There
Oh my goodness!! This Inn always feels like "home". We've visited this Inn many times now and the attention to detail is second to none. Each staff member is ready to help you anytime you need them. I feel like the leadership certainly comes from the top! Kim and Jim have become good friends and we always anxiously await our favorite time of the year when we get to visit our friends again.
Breakfast would certainly be considered Gourmet! We are so excited each morning when we come down to read the board to know what is in store for us that day.
We highly recommend this property!
Booked right on their website. Picked the “Barnard” room. Check in was a breeze, followed by a tour of the property and sampling of fresh chocolate chip cookies.
Room had a queen bed with a jetted tub. Bathroom was good sized with great toiletries.
Romantic. Quiet. Friendly staff. Breakfast was off the chain delicious
The very best bed and breakfast we’ve ever stayed at.
Two weddings and an elopement was going on the same weekend
Staff is friendly and really makes you feel welcomed
We cannot wait to return and are making this a yearly tradition
Thanks for the wonderful weekend

We are sitting beneath the trees on the back of this beautiful property while I am writing this. This property is absolutely gorgeous and unbelievably clean and always kept up.
The owners of this inn make us feel as though we have been lifelong friends. This is our fourth visit here and every visit is our best visit.
The staff goes out of their way to make you feel welcome and will accommodate your every need. Judy, Andy, Cynthia and the rest of the staff are always helpful and are quick to give assistance on the planning of your day.
The rooms are always clean and when you come back from breakfast they are already cleaned and restocked.
And the breakfasts are simply delicious, wonderful and so abundant that lunch is an afterthought. This morning we had ginger whipped yogurt parfait with roasted apples, sausage cheddar waffles, eggs and Vermont maple syrup.
This will certainly not be our last visit because we can truly say that The Inn at the Round Barn Farm feels like home to us
