This is one of three properties owned by the Franc Family and their closest to Mad River Glen. Called the Garrison in a prior life, the Franc family renovated the property and spun their own twist into the classic lodging. Mad River Lodge offers 22 units and this includes double rooms, single rooms, and studio units.

Location is everything for this property, as it sits tantalizingly close to both Mad River Glen and Sugarbush at Mt. Ellen. River activities, hiking and biking trails, and the local Mad River Valley culture are all just a short distance away for those visitors who come during warmer weather.
