MEET YOUR HOSTS

For nearly 250 years, the Brandon Inn has been welcoming guests to share in the relaxed and friendly atmosphere you'd expect in a Vermont country inn. And now, Joel and Darcy MacClaren join over twenty past innkeepers to serve as stewards of one of Vermont's oldest continuously running inns.

No strangers to Brandon, Darcy's sister and brother-in-law, Deb and Ed Bratton, own and operate Maple View Farm Alpacas and Vermont Fiber Mill & Studio in the Arnold District of town. Joel and Darcy relocated from their homes in Madison, CT and Stratton Mountain, VT and now enjoy living in Brandon.

Joel's hospitality background includes the Villa Olga Guest House, now Olga's Fancy, located in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, the Wentworth By-the-Sea in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and the Barclay InterContinental Hotel in Midtown New York City. The InterContinental gave Joel the opportunity to do project work in Europe, Africa, and Southeast Asia as well as many U.S. cities. Joel is excited to be using his background to give the Brandon Inn a balance of a fine hotel and the coziness of a country inn.

A family that cycles and skis, Joel and Darcy were "weekend warriors" along with children Whitney and David. The home at Stratton is where family holidays were celebrated, guests were entertained and where the family came to love Vermont. David attended the Stratton Mountain School for high school and after college, worked at the alpaca farm and fiber mill before relocating to Boston.

Like past innkeepers, Joel and Darcy feel privileged to be part of the living history of the Brandon Inn and lucky to be part of a small town community like Brandon.

We hope you relax and enjoy what we have to offer!
