See How the White Horse Lodge Came to Be

An Authentic Waitsfield Ski Lodge

In 2015, while looking for a home on the river, we stumbled upon The Golden Lion Riverside Inn in Warren, which became the Warren Lodge. In 2019 we decided to jump into another adventure when we purchased The Garrison, just down the hill from Mad River Glen, and created the Mad River Lodge. The White Horse Lodge, a Waitsfield, VT boutique hotel is our third property in the Mad River Valley, and we couldn’t be more excited! We invite you to come experience any of our lodging properties and allow us to share our love of the area with you, your family, or your group!

Meet the Franc Family

Proud Owners of the White Horse Lodge

Hi, we’re the Franc family! We first came to the Mad River Valley when we tagged along with some friends on a ski trip in 2013. We had no idea of what to expect, but it was love at first sight! We began coming back to “The Valley” throughout the year to experience all the seasons. We knew the snowy winters were great but we also came to appreciate the hiking, swimming and cool mountain air in the summer, and of course were awestruck with the magnificent foliage season! But more so than the area’s natural beauty, we connected to its palpable sense of community, which was what truly led to our move to the area.
