    Mad River Valley

    Yellow Farmhouse Inn-Mad River Valley ViewNestled in the Heart of Central Vermont between two spines of the Green Mountains, the Mad River Valley is about as idyllic a vacation destination as you're going to find. The Mad River winds north from Warren to Waitsfield, by Fayston, then through Moretown before flowing into the Winooski River. The valley is unique in many ways, not least of which is our 3 ski mountains and lack of traffic signals.

    The valley is peaceful, but active in a progressive Vermont way: 3 ski mountains, riverside parks, farmer's markets, golfing, ice skating, kayaking, swimming, cross-country skiing, canoeing, tubing, a very active localvore movement and many more activities to participate in

    For those not looking for the active, no worries. Scenic Views, Local Artisan Shops,wonderful restaurants, and the unhurried atmosphere of the Valley will soothe your soul and have you wanting to return year after year.

    Whether you are looking to spend a romantic weekend with your partner or ski moguls all week at Sugarbush or Mad River Glen, we're sure you will fall in love with our little Valley as soon as you arrive.

    Yellow Farmhouse Inn-Mountain FoliageYellow Farmhouse Inn Guests Say

    "Thank you so much for a wonderful getaway. Your hospitality was warm and the room relaxing. The Yellow Farmhouse Inn truly was a home away from home. Thank you again until next time." Jersey City, NJ

    Beautiful New England Foliage Tour

    "We toured New England for an October Foliage vacation and we realized that we should have stayed the entire 2 weeks at the Yellow Farmhouse Inn and saved ourselves the time of packing and unpacking going to new destinations. The Inn itself is gorgeous and you really don't need to leave the property to enjoy the spectacular mountain foliage views. We did take day trips from Waitsfield, Vermont on 3 different occasions and everything we saw in 2 other states was within an hour drive in each direction from early colors to full peak. My suggestion to anyone planning a foliage driving tour is to stay in the Mad River Valley, we obviously recommend the Yellow Farmhouse Inn, and enjoy the laid back atmosphere, the wonderful colors and the hospitality on Mike & Sandra!"

    Great Ski Vacation

    "We must say this was the best ski & stay package we've encountered at Sugarbush in our years of coming up. Fantastic breakfast free shuttle pickup to Sugarbush at the Inn's driveway fresh baked treats and hot cocoa by the fire when we returned and a hot jacuzzi before heading out to dinner. The Inn supplied everything they promised on their website and more. The package price with all fees included made our choice a lot easier as we did not need to sit with a calculator trying to figure out that per person per day mess that we see so many other places. Thanks Mike & Sandra for a wonderful experience and we agree with your thoughts as to "why can't skiers be pampered too? I think we all deserve it!"
