Very friendly and warm atmosphere. Fantastic breakfast, with a choice of cookies, coffee and tea upon returning from the ski slopes. All rooms are clean and close to the slopes.


Excellent Place to Stay!

I've been here now on a couple occasions and will definitely keep it as one of my go-to spots to stay over on a ski-cation in the Mad River Valley. The Staff are some of the nicest people I've ever met, the rooms are impeccably clean, and the breakfast is amazing! They do have beer and it does include the unique Vermont Selections at a very reasonable price. Highly Recommend!


Perfect for a ski/snowboard holiday!

Allen and Bob were great hosts. Will return in the future! Really relaxing after a good day on the slopes.


Great Place!

4.6 on January 06, 2018

Great location near Mad River Glen and Sugarbush. Nice great room with cookies available pretty much all day. We had a king room on the third floor....it did tend to get a bit hot (heat rises). But I prefer no one above us for noise control. So not really a big deal. Breakfast was awesome! Bob and Allen truly made us feel welcome. Really a great place to stay at a reasonable price. Already booked our next stay...


Pre Christmas Stay

I stayed for my son's ski camp at GMVS and I loved it. Right across the street from Mt Ellen, very near town, with an extremely cozy and conformable lounge that has a classic Vermont fireplace and new cookies every day make this inn perfect. I will be back.


Another Awesome Stay at the Inn

Cozy room, super clean and always the best breakfast in town.


A hidden gem in New England !

4.0 on October 27, 2017

We're love to stay at this place. We were here 2 years ago. This time we returned and brought 4 friends with us and they all loved it. It always a cozy, peaceful place with excellent breakfast which the owner (Bob) prepares for guesses every morning. What can I say? Definitely will return to White Horse Inn next time if we come back to New England !


Great place to relax and unwind.
