See the Transformation from The Garrison to the Mad River Lodge

When the Franc family first visited the Mad River Valley, they immediately fell in love with it. Their subsequent visits prompted them to take a giant leap and buy their first vacation lodge in Waitsfield, VT – now the Warren Lodge. But they didn’t stop there. They also acquired a former ski vacation staple in town, The Garrison, and has renovated it to become the Mad River Lodge. See the transformation of this amazing property in the featured article in  The Valley Reporter.
