“Talent in the Kitchen”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

The Inn is on the nicer end of the spectrum as New England inns go and certainly is located in a bucolic setting. But the food was quite special -- original and really top notch -- the chef is quite talented. The staff was quite friendly and extremely accommodating.

The inn was beautiful. The breakfast delicious. The evening snowshoeing tour out to the cabin for dinner was so much fun! Everyone at the inn was just wonderful. We stayed in the Sherman room and didn't hear a thing! We can't wait to come back next year and plan to bring friends along with us!

We are just back from a weekend stay at The Inn and cannot wait to go back, from the moment you walk in the door you are welcomed and feel at home and comfortable. We were a party of two veggies and one gluten free and all dietary needs were accommodated (although we had not pre-arranged this and my husband only mentioned in passing) the food was gorgeous, homemade and fresh, the afternoon cookies, the evening h'orderves and the three course breakfast is what sets this apart from most other B&B's. The decor is clean, very comfortable, luxurious and cosey. Andy gave us a tour and his enthusiasm and fondness for the inn is contagious, the inn keepers really want you to enjoy your stay and it shows. I can only say the staff, the food, the ambiance, the rooms oand the inn (games room, sitting area etc) are lovely and something that you must experience for yourself, they even provide with snow shoes and maps should you wish to go snowshoeing on their land, you do not feel rushed or 'in the way' it is a very relaxing cosey and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: The Joslyn is totally luxe.

My wife and I spent a lovely weekend at the Inn at Round Barn. Staff was very attentive and the common areas were beautiful as was our room. Some nice touches such as appetizers in the evening and a pretty decent breakfast too (although everyone gets whatever the breakfast is for that day).

For winter activities it is a great location, with Snowhoeing on the inns own land, X-C Skiing close by at Oli's and Sugarbush and Mad River Glen just 10 mins away.

That said, whilst excellent I did feel it was a bit overpriced given that it is not a full-service inn, i.e. no bar or restaurant in the evening. Also be aware that whilst the rooms are very nicely appointed, noise and voices do carry from room to room.

Overall an excellent stay at a very nice B&B and from that perpspective you'll definately have an enjoyable experience if you stay here. Is it truly an inn? - probably a matter of opinion. Excellent value - probably not.

We chose The Round Barn for a visit as my daughter is getting married there in June and we wanted to get a feel for the Inn. What an amazing place. The ambiance and accommodations were just incredible. Friendly staff, cozy and well appointed distinctive rooms. Chef Adam created delicious breakfasts, happily accommodating our desire to get out early for skiing. We can hardly wait to get back for our June event!

I have been a guest at least 5 times for a "sisters weekend" and have loved it each time.If you want to relax and just unwind or hit the winter wonderland during the colder months this is great.
All the staff are very accomodating and the common areas are cozy and embracing. Just "chill" and enjoy the sights, smells of cookies every afternoon and the best Inn breakfast on the planet.

Green Features: The purchased many local products and food fare from local farms and services. Love it!

Let me preface by saying, I don't think we are "Inn" people, as we discovered during our stay. I think we prefer more modern "hotel" amenities.

The inn was in a lovely peaceful part of Waitsfield. We came up for a weekend away from our little ones for some skiing and snowshoeing. Our room was large and spacious, with a Jacuzzi tub and a fireplace.

Our room was beautiful - high ceilings with exposed beams, large king bed. The fireplace was a highlight. We actually liked that there was no TV as we could spend time relaxing and ready by the fire. The grounds were beautiful, and the snowshoe trails were easily accessible and provided a lovely afternoon outdoors. We brought our own, but I noticed the inn provides equipment for guests - and the equipment was fairly new and in good condition.

Breakfasts were delicious and innovative - though I don't really need a three course breakfast. However, it's served from 8:30-9:30 only, which is a late start to the day. They did accommodate guests with an earlier breakfast seating by request. After three courses, we didn't want to do ANYTHING except take a nap. Some people just getting away for a quiet weekend would love this. I'm more of a get up and go person and would have preferred an egg sandwich and cup of coffee to hit the slopes early.

The staff was very pleasant and welcoming. Judy, in particular, was great in making recommendations and was very warm.

The bed was like heaven, cozy and comfy. They also provided flashlights that you could take with you for your walk in from the parking lot at night - very smart! Cookies and tea were lovely in the afternoon - but could have used some mugs - they provide tiny glass teacups that hold about 6 oz. The selection of teas was top notch.

I thought the accommodations were pricey for the level of service. The bathroom was pretty dated, the leather chair in our room stained, light bulbs out in the chandelier. The jacuzzi tub's drain made a terrible noise throughout a bath (I believe the gasket seal was dried out). The handle to the shower fell off in my hand several times throughout our stay. Little things that really didn't cause us any discomfort or muddy our stay, but really shouldn't happen at $300 a night. There was a little basket with scissors, sewing kit, earplugs and light bulbs - but I really don't expect to be replacing my own light bulbs at a hotel. No irons in the rooms, you have to ask for one to be set up in a common hall. There also weren't the high end toiletries you'd expect from an expensive inn - there was a dispenser in the shower (like at your gym) that had shampoo, conditioner and body wash. There was a face wipe and tiny trial size lotion on the counter (great lotion though!). They did have wonderful robes for use during your stay, and adorable socks if you wanted to use them.

And as some other posters said, there is a slight smell to the water. I'm assuming it's just well water and sure it's perfectly safe. And, as other guests stated, it is loud. Just part of being in an inn, but we were above the kitchen, and we could hear the staff talking before breakfast VERY early each morning, pots banging (before 7am). Normally this wouldn't bother me either, but I have two kids under two and haven't slept in in two years.

Other guests were very pleasant and there was a game room on the lower level for gathering, pool, television. We didn't spend much time there, but guests seemed to like it.

All in all, it was a very friendly and welcoming environment. Big room with a cozy bed, wonderful fireplace, beautiful setting and delightful breakfast. A wonderful way to spend a quiet. lazy weekend with your honey. If you're just looking for a clean room to stay in for a ski weekend, probably less expensive options without the "ambiance" here. And again, I think we just prefer hotels. This was a really lovely inn.

Room Tip: The Richardson room was HUGE and beautiful with a rustic, cabin-like feel. Though beware of noise fr...
