  • From the first time we visited Lareau, we could feel that it is a very special place. When you live in Vermont, you get pretty used to being charmed by adorable old homes, historic barns, sprawling fields, and beautiful views. Even with us being as spoiled as all of that, Lareau struck us as a truly magical and essential “Vermont” place and we knew that we wanted to get married there. In what was undoubtedly the most bizarre and stressful wedding year of our generation, the incredible folks at Lareau allowed my partner and I to have a celebration that felt truly authentic to us, safe, comfortable, and festive. From the initial planning stages, to the re-planning, to the second re-planning, Helen and Dave were communicative, thorough, detail-oriented, and supremely flexible. Helen knows what she is about with wedding planning; she guided us through the process with professionalism and warmth, not missing a beat despite all of the hurdles. On our wedding day, Helen was a subtle gu... Read more

  • Just as the reviewer before me said, I wish I could give more than five stars. The venue itself is beautiful, this goes without saying, but it is the staff that truly make it special. Helen is without a doubt one of the best wedding coordinators in the business. She is kind, genuine, attentive and hard-working. It poured all morning on our wedding day but she helped me to feel relaxed and confident in knowing that we had a plan. In the end, the flexibility of the staff allowed us to have the ceremony outdoors once the weather cleared up. I am so grateful for this. You'll find Helen setting tables early in the morning, checking in with your friends, family and vendors throughout the day and even in the kitchen making appetizers. She does it all! We opted to have all of our closest friends stay at the Inn with us for the weekend, upon Helen's suggestion, which worked perfectly. The breakfast each morning was made to order and was absolutely delicious. After the reception, we were abl... Read more

  • It was truly a dream getting married at the Lareau Farm. The grounds were clean, maintained, and beautiful. Staying at the Inn for the weekend was a dream. Breakfast was served each morning, the rooms were clean, unique and beautiful, and you had the privilege to use the Inn like your own home. The staff on the property were friendly, kind, and respectful. Helen, the wedding planner was by far one of the most helpful humans I have ever met. She was extremely easy to work with, had so many great ideas, and made my wedding process a breeze. Honestly, Helen made sure everything was perfect days and weeks before, so the weekend of the wedding, there was no confusion or questions. The food? incredible! Flatbreads were being cooked as people were being served so everything was extremely fresh and warm. Everyone was eating within twenty minutes which was wonderful. I wish I could give the Lareau more than five stars. If you want a place that is yours for the weekend, a classic but rustic wed... Read more

  • It is difficult to find the right words to describe how absolutely perfect the Lareau Farm Inn and its team of incredible people were for our wedding. When we began looking for a venue we knew we wanted something relaxed, scenic and fun. Lareau Farm is that and so so much more. We planned the wedding from a state away, so our ability to meet in person was very limited. Luckily for us, Lareau has Helen who is their innkeeper and event coordinator. Helen is so kind and so helpful in keeping plans on track and without making it feel overwhelming. What we didn’t know until we actually got there though was that not just Helen but their whole team is absolutely wonderful! They made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. Oh! And the food – the food is AMAZING!! I still dream about the apps. We did a buffet for dinner with chicken and pulled pork, then late night flatbreads to end the night, which was a huge hit with our guests. We are so grateful to have had such an amazing wedding e...

  • If you're considering having your Vermont wedding someplace other than at Lareau Farm Inn - don't. Helen and the staff at Lareau Farm are responsive, helpful and wonderfully kind. We changed the size of our wedding several times during our 18 month engagement, had to bring in a tent to accommodate additional guests etc. -Helen was always so quick to help us readjust our numbers, guide us through the process, and answer every single one of our questions. We also wanted to have our favorite home state foods as part of our late night menu, and they happily accommodated our request. We were looking for a place to showcase our home state of Vermont as 90% of our wedding guests would be traveling to the area for our wedding. They were completely blown away by the beautiful atmosphere, AMAZING food and perfect hospitality (our guests are still raving about the food!). I would choose to have our wedding at Lareau Farm Inn a million times over. Thank you to Helen and the staff at Lareau Farm In... Read more

  • We were married at Lareau Farm this past September and we can't say enough wonderful things about our experience! The setting is beautiful, the staff was amazing and we loved the flathbread served at the reception. We were looking for a place to have our wedding that would be laid back and stress free and would be a great place for our friends and family to spend a weekend away. We made a great choice! Helen was very responsive to the many questions that we had throughout the planning process. The entire process was stress free and came out exactly the way that we were hoping. The entire staff made us feel completely at home the entire week. We loved everything about Lareau Farm and couldn't be happier that we chose to have our wedding there!

  • Five stars isn’t close to enough for how strongly I feel about Lareau - getting married here was the best experience we could have imagined. People - Everyone we interacted with was beyond kind. Helen walked us through every step of the process and was such a lovely, calm presence at the rehearsal and on the day itself. Dave KNOWS his food, my goodness - we really appreciated his guidance in picking out the menu and just seeing him around. The women who worked the bar and the breakfast were just delightful, and when Clay ran into us creeping around the property in April he was incredibly friendly and answered all our questions. Food - We had flatbreads at the rehearsal dinner (fantastic), roast pig and paella with truffled potato salad and cornbread at the reception (FANTASTIC), and breakfast at the inn every morning (fantastic). The coffee cake and French toast with apples and bacon were a huge hit! Inn - Helen was SO helpful in making sure everyone was in the right plac... Read more

  • Lareau Farm Inn is the perfect place for a wedding if you’re looking for a location with lots of natural beauty. There is a beautiful river, meadows, and hiking trails through the forest on the property. Helen, our wedding planner, was incredibly kind and informative throughout the whole process, guiding us through and offering great suggestions when we needed it. Not to be missed is the incredible flatbread made with ingredients grown around the farm in a wood fired oven. This may be on the casual end for a wedding reception but I promise you it’s worth it! I dream about returning there just to eat the food. :) They even make vegan and gluten free options for guests who need it. One of the best parts of the experience was having our closest family and friends all stay together at the inn for the weekend. It’s probably something we’ll never be able to replicate, and that was really special. I highly recommend Lareau!

  • Kyle and I were married at Lareau Farm this past August, and it was absolutely everything we could have ever dreamed of!! Helen and the entire Lareau/Flatbread staff were absolutely amazing - their professionalism but ability to laugh with us made us so relaxed! We had some crazy weather the day of, but the entire staff moved quickly and adapted so well...from putting up the tent walls to keep out the sideways rain, to taking them down 20 minutes before the ceremony when the sun came out! The food was incredible, the property was absolutely gorgeous, and we wouldn't change a thing! So much love for the Lareau family!

  • It was a bit of a no-brainer when it came to selecting American Flatbread to do the food and bar at our wedding (we had American Flatbread as our food/beverage caterer, but the wedding was elsewhere. Flatbread has long been my favorite pizza on the planet, and the sample menu they provided sealed the deal. We wanted something fresh and delicious with heart and soul, and that's exactly what we got. Everyone was extremely nice and easy to work with. Helen quickly handled any questions that arose (and we threw a lot of Qs her way), beverage selection was a breeze...basically all aspects of the process were smooth, from planning to payment. The big day, obviously, was the best part. We loved having the ambiance of the oven and the general Flatbread vibe. The team was great, accommodating all, and just a joy to have on-site. My only regret is that my wife and I never got around to eating the pie the crew set aside for us (we were having too much fun!!)...

  • Wonderful event space! My wife and I used their newly renovated barn for our rehearsal dinner and it was the perfect rustic Vermont setting. Helen was wonderful to work with and made the planning process easy for our 40 person dinner. Adding a champagne toast and custom desert was a breeze. The evening was a perfect kick off to our wedding weekend!

  • The inn at lareau farm is a magical place. We could not have asked for a better wedding location. It just feels like home. Our guests could not say enough good things about it. Flatbread pizza at the reception. A swim in the mad river before the ceremony. It's a small staff, but they worked so hard. Two people pulled all nighters the weekend of our wedding. We did the rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception and Sunday brunch at Lareau and I highly recommend it.

  • When we decided to get married in the Mad River Valley, we immediately knew that we wanted our food to come from Lareau Farm Inn. We have been fans of their flatbread pizzas for years, and we are SO thrilled with the decision to include them on our wedding day. Helen was fantastic to work with and made us so excited for the big day. We booked the mobile oven to cook on location and it was fabulous. Everyone raved about the pizza and salads, as well as the passed apps (my dad still always talks about the bacon-wrapped dates). The entire process was a breeze and the food just felt “like us.” Can’t recommend booking the mobile oven enough!

  • A great venue for our crowd-- Dave and Helen took care of the details and made it really easy for us to enjoy the weekend. Having the ceremony, reception, B & B, and space to play all in one place made it easy for our out of towners. Many guests told us it was the most relaxed, fun wedding they've been to. A nice balance of beautiful, but not too formal.

  • My wedding party stayed at the Inn at Lareau Farm for the weekend of my wedding, and we had a rehearsal dinner there on Friday and a send off brunch on Sunday. The good: Catering and events, and Helen: The food was phenomenal. On Friday we had their pizza party dinner, with some appetizers, and a cash bar. The staff was amazing, the location is great, and it was exactly the vibe we were going for. The catering and catering staff get 5 stars, and if you're just doing an event at the Inn, you can't go wrong. Same with the sendoff brunch--the food was ah-maz-ing-- we basically got their suggested menu. The pricing was also super reasonable. The bad: The process for booking rooms and staying at the Inn was my biggest wedding stressor and headache from start to finish, including the days leading up to my wedding. The other inns took care of the bookings themselves--we let them know when we needed rooms, our guests took it from there. Not so at Lareau. They had me take care of booking... Read more

    Thank you for your honest review. We very much enjoyed the opportunity to provide a quality experience for both your rehearsal dinner and your brunch! We took your feedback about the reservation process for guests very seriously and have made significant changes to our process since then, including updating our reservation system to allow for a more seamless experience. Last year was a transitional year for the inn and in addition to updating our reservation system we have also hired Helen as the innkeeper and have made many changes to the interior of the inn and inn rooms! Thank you again for the feedback.
