Summer, winter, fall, beer, food...its all fun! 


The Green Mountains provide a fantastic playground for hiking, mountain biking, road biking, foliage gawking, and a variety of other seasonal activities.  Conveniently located in the heart of Vermont’s Mad River Valley, The Wilder Farm Inn is a stones-throw away from this recreational haven!  Situated on Route 100, often referred to as Vermont’s “Skiing Highway”, guests will enjoy Sugarbush and Mad River Glen ski resorts just down the road.  Offering hundreds of kilometers of groomed trails, downhill enthusiasts, cross country skiers, and snowshoer alike can access this lauded terrain from the Inn’s backyard. But winter always gives way to  warmer weather, and with it biking, hiking, canoeing, and drinking beer outside- all of which you can easily find here in the valley. We are avid outdoor enthusiasts, and are excited to share our adventures in the Mad River Valley with you.


For summer time adventurers, the Mad River offers incredible swimming holes! Just across the street! Borrow a tube, kayak, or paddle board from us and explore the Mad River, Blueberry Lake, of Waterbury Reservoir. OR set out on a swimming hole circuit, dunking in one hole after another as you make your way down the valley. 


Fall foliage is incredible here in the Mad River Valley! Your stay at Wilder Farm Inn places you at the center of the action. Plan a number of hikes, drives, bike rides, or riverside strolls through the crisp fall air, incredible scenery and changing foliage. Truly one of the best times to visit the valley. 


A winter wonderland. Two major ski resorts, nordic skiing and snowshoeing, fat biking, dog sledding, and more! The Mad River Valley embraces all things winter. An incredible place to take in all that the season has to offer.
