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 place, even when trying to coordinate family members who were all over the map. The rooms are beautiful and so comfortable (and ours at least was blessedly air conditioned). The back porch was the most relaxing place to have breakfast and look at the mountains. It was fun to wander the rest of the property too! My nephew had a blast investigating the pigs and chickens and the easy access to the water hole was MUCH appreciated. Ceremony/Reception Venue - the ceremony space is a bit secluded but easy to get to (there’s a path for a car to drive and drop folks who need the assist). The arbor is beautiful and the reception space was GREAT. There were so many different spaces for people to feel comfortable in - you could dance, talk by the bar, play cornhole, sit by the fire, or if you were the kids run in circles in the field. Honestly I could go on forever - this was such a special experience and a place we’ll come back to for the rest of our lives. I can’t recommend it highly 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 everyone (I thought, ok fine, I'm sure they'll take over once they know where to put each guest). I sent over the initial spreadsheet with room assignments-but then was asked for an updated spreadsheet each time one of my guests changed their dates. The kicker was that they GOT IT WRONG the week-of. My MOH entered a fully dark building and was greeted rudely by staff the next day. She noticed our friends' room key wasn't out when they were arriving the next night, the Innkeeper told her to call ME because there were "too many spreadsheets" and "the bride needs to take care of it."-10pm two days before my wedding; I was barely in cell service, spending time with my brother who had just gotten to town. I didn't think to have the spreadsheet on my phone; I was livid. The next morning I had it out with Dave, the Innkeeper, who told me the inn was ours for the rest of the weekend (false, there were strangers there morning-of). There's more, but I'm out of words.
Lareau Farm Inn responded with the following comments:
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.

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.

Having our wedding at Lareau Farm was perfect! The pavilion was perfect for our 140 guests, the food was amazing! The homemade pie was amazing! They were very flexible when it came down to food, drinks, and dessert... they were willing to do exactly what we wanted. The floor was great for dancing and also for our older guests. I would highly recommend this for your rustic/Mountain/farm house wedding The cost below included venue fee, renting table, chairs, and all dishes, food, dessert, and drinks!

Great location and overall well done. My lower marks are for a lack of responsiveness and dropping the ball on reserving a specific keg from a local brewer that I had noted almost a year in advance.

It was very hard to locate staff to answer our questions on the day of and in the weeks and months before the wedding. We also feel that the whole inn could have been cleaner. For example my husband (the groom) removed many spider webs from the porch the night before the wedding and noticed a hornets nest right outside one of our guests windows.
