Green Mountains Vermong - The Inn at the Round Barn Farm
Okay-you are probably not the first and surely won't be the last to discover The Inn at the Round Barn Farm in Waitsfield, Vermont now that Bride & Groom, Business Travel Guide, Cooking Light, Historic Preservation, Modern Bride, Outside Traveler, Smithsonian, Travel & Leisure, Vermont Wedding Guide and many others have featured this gem of an inn. And when you combine dazzling views, privacy and an historical round barn that hosts incredible cultural attractions you have something that is not an easy combination to beat. Once you do, you may even have the urge to keep it a secret.
As we quickly discovered one beautiful June morning, this place is a world apart with its uncluttered landscape, serene ponds, flowing rivers, valleys, rolling hills, mountains, woods, greenery and wildlife. No wonder this pastoral splendor of the Mad River Valley is a source of pride, pleasure and inspiration for its residents and the primary reason why so many have been lured here to celebrate their weddings, anniversaries or other special occasions....read more »
Central Massachusetts prides itself as being the “Heart of the Commonwealth,” and although it may not be as up beat and sophisticated as Boston or Cape Cod, it nevertheless holds its own when it comes to providing couples with some of the most unusual wedding venues.

The city is also home to The Historic Inns Of Rockland, a consortium of six independently owned inns that are dedicated to historical preservation, as well as providing their guests with a memorable experience within a locale that has reinvented itself as a mecca for the arts and outdoor activities.
In addition, three of these inns, LimeRock Inn , Berry Manor Inn and Captain Lindsey House have created a sub-consortium that inter-change and leverage their facilities offering a combined wedding venue that take full advantage of their unique attributes. As all are in walking distance of one another, you can avail yourself of anyone of them for the rehearsal dinner, afternoon bridesmaid’s tea, wedding reception, and any other functions.
The gorgeous outdoor gardens of The LimeRock Inn make it an ideal choice to exchange vows providing plenty of space to move around. The stately Berry Manor Inn with its drawing room, spacious parlor, dining room, and grand stairway, all presenting a Victorian flair, make this inn a most attractive wedding venue. You can even engage the services of Captain Ken Barnes to perform the wedding ceremony. He and his wife Ellen are owners of the Captain Lindsey House. The intimacy of the Captain Lindsey House, that incidentally resembles a European style hotel, along with the Barnes’ wonderful collection of décor, relics, and authentic antiques acquired during their many years of travel, will surely provide the wedding guests with some interesting topics for animated conversation.....read more>>
One of the challenges faced by many a bride and groom is juggling guests and keeping them entertained, particularly if it involves several days.
This can be somewhat tricky, and here is where the experienced staff of the Inn comes in very handy.
