Lovely weekend at The Inn at the Round Barn

5 on December 15, 2017

My fiancee and I had a wonderful long weekend at the Inn at the Round Barn. Usually visitors to Stowe, we decided to venture further south this time. The Inn is charming, cozy and comfortable. The shared facilities are well kept, and we had a great time playing pool. The rooms are lovely with comfy beds and lots of space. Breakfast was exemplary.

It was a great time there !

Amazing Property!

I've stayed at the Round Barn on many occasions and I can't think of a better place for a VT getaway. From the ponds in the Summer to the Snowshoeing in the Winter. Kim and her team make you feel like you're part of the family. The Richardson Room is my favorite!

We stayed at The Inn at the Round Barn Farm the last week in September 2015. It was an excellent stay! Great service and friendly people. The morning breakfast was fantastic with a different meal each morning. Fruits, eggs, pancakes, special breads, etc. The cooks and staff put great effort into making each morning special. The dining room had a great view of the property which was outstanding. The rooms was very comfortable and clean. Staff gave us recommendations on what to see in the area which were spot on as we came to see the fall colors and beauty of Vermont. The only negative, not the fault of the Inn, was the lack of eating establishments in town which had very limited weekly hours. Maybe it was the time of year and they were gearing down as winter is approaching. We met some great people from around the world staying at the Inn, and enjoyed their company in the evening in the game room/tv room. The Inn put out cookies, pie, and other assorted appetizers in the late afternoon and we enjoyed them sitting out on the back deck overlooking the property. We would definitely come back to the Inn again and recommend to friends and family.

Historic country inn with gourmet food

During a preview visit in the spring and mid December return for our son's wedding we were delighted by the charming rustic ambiance and scenic views of fields and mountains. The chef dazzled us with gourmet breakfasts and afternoon appetizers plus cookies, but the wedding food was even better! All the guests raved. Staff very helpful.

Great, Relaxing Stay

Spent 3 nights here with my girlfriend during the "mud season." Everything exceeded our expectations. The staff was attentive, friendly, and professional. The room was cute/quaint and very inviting (Jones Room.) The food was outstanding! Delicious meals every morning that were both creative and classic. And you can't beat coming back to homemade cookies everyday after a full day of activities! Definitely would like to come back in the future.

We had a wonderful stay at the Inn at the Round Barn Farm in January. It's a beautiful B&B, right in the middle of ski country in Vermont. We stayed in the Joslin Room, very beautiful and loved the jacuzzi tub after a long day on the slopes! Great breakfasts and very friendly and welcoming staff, we loved it! Would definitely stay here again!

A Warm and White Christmas

My family vacationed at the Round Barn Inn for Christmas this year and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We all agreed that despite the holiday, the staff was welcoming and extremely friendly. We enjoyed sitting around the fireplace (that was always lit) sipping on wine and tasting the many cookies and appetizers offered. We highly recommend visiting!
