Situated on Vermont Route 17, The Swanson Inn (formerly the Millbrook Inn) is a short 5 mile drive to Sugarbush Resort and 4 miles to Mad River Glen, and just two miles to Waitsfield village shopping and restaurants. The Mad River Valley is a four-season destination filled with activities for the whole family including skiing, horseback riding, mountain and road biking, birding, running, sightseeing or just relaxing at the Inn.
Welcome to your Vermont Country Home.
Your stay at The Swanson Inn includes a full, hearty country breakfast, including daily muffins, a fruit salad or yogurt, and main course. Tea, coffee, and juice are also on the menu. Cookies with tea or coffee are available in the afternoon. Wine, beer, or hard cider are also available for purchase.
The recently re-named Swanson Inn continues a seventy-year tradition of hosting visitors to the Mad River Valley. Starting in 1948, Henry and Ginny Perkins opened a ski lodge the same year Mad River Glen opened its doors just up the road. The Perkins became a fixture for welcoming skiers to Vermont. In 1979, Thom and Joan Gorman took over operations of the then, Millbrook Inn. Under their 40 year ownership, the Millbrook Inn became well known for its restaurant and hospitality all four seasons of the year. Rick Swanson and Tim Heath-Swanson purchased the Millbrook Inn in 2018 and re-named it the Swanson Inn of Vermont. Returning the name of the Inn to its owners, and honoring Thom and Joan with the re-named Gorman Room, we look forward to sharing our history and our future with you.
