A Vermont Country Inn in the Mad River Valley...

The Millbrook Inn

Millbrook Country Inn is a classic cape-style farm house built by Jack Dana in the 1850's.  He located his farmhouse close to his lumber and brick mills on the nearby Mill Brook.  Today the mills are long gone and Millbrook Inn's picturesque setting is midway between the ski slopes and the village of Waitsfield on scenic Mill Brook Road (Route 17). Henry & Ginny Perkins purchased Millbrook Country Inn in 1948 from Jack Dana's estate and turned it into a bed and breakfast inn the same year that skiers first schussed the slopes of Mad River Glen.   From 1979 to 2010, innkeepers Joan & Thom Gorman maintained the renowned Vermont innkeeping tradition of personalized service in a friendly, unhurried atmosphere.  Since Thom's passing in December, 2010, Joan has continued the tradition, running Millbrook as a bed and breakfast with guest-only dining.

The wood stove You enter the inn through the Warming Room where the Jotl Stove blazes a warm winter welcome.  The quiet living rooms, one with a fireplace, are places to curl up in a rocking chair with a good book or enjoy a parlor game.  Although we were never the first kids on the block to embrace new technology, we boast high-speed wireless DSL internet access throughout the inn (and the backyard and Octagon House as well).  Our guests can catch up on their email or surf the internet.Our  seven guest rooms,  all with private baths, are decorated with hand stenciling, antique bedsteads, and handmade quilts, ceiling fans, and have air conditioning available. 

The dining room While enjoying relaxing before the fire after a day on the slopes or out in the hammock after a day in the mountains, we offer a selection of wine from our travels and Vermont beer.Wine Basket Our hearty breakfast offerings include juice, fruit, cereal, and yogurt; then guests order their choice of any combination (or all) of Joan's homemade pancakes, French toast made from our homemade Anadama bread, local free-range eggs any style, local bacon, ham, sausage, and home fries.  In the summer we serve outdoors on the patio, which is surrounded by our spacious lawn and gardens. The beautifully decorated dining room (with fireplace) provides a relaxing, candle-lit atmosphere for your dinner, which is prepared with fresh local ingredients.

Millbrook Country Inn is conveniently located five minutes from some of the finest skiing in the east. Sugarbush offers over 100 trails that will satisfy everyone from the first-time skier to the expert.  Neighboring Mad River Glen is famous for its friendly atmosphere and challenging terrain. For Nordic skiers, excellent ski touring centers offer both groomed trails and backcountry skiing.  Joan is a Mad River Glen shareholder and avid skier and will gladly help you plan your ski day. For the non-skier, or for taking a break from skiing, both the Sugarbush Sports Center and the Bridges Sports Center are complete indoor sports facilities.
