Charlie Menard

Our Executive Chef Charlie started with us in 2000. He is a rarity amongst chefs with an easy smile and a no problem manner. He makes the food world go around, from 2 people to 2, 000, all with style and panache. A native Vermonter and graduate from the New England Culinary Institute, Charlie has traveled the world cooking up a storm; knowing he would return to Vermont someday. Utilizing our organic gardens or working with local farms, his passion for local foods make our weddings extravagant. We are glad he found a home here because he is more than just our chef, as he cares about all aspects of our company. Be sure to check out his latest project, Canteen Creemee Company in Downtown Waitsfield. It's a Farm to Counter snack bar and Creemee stand in the Vermont tradition. Swing by to try one of his amazing sundae creations.Floor Manager & Asst Event Coordinator - Becky Greene Little Honey moo-moo, anyone?

Becky Greene

Becky joined the team in 2012 and brought a new sense of energy to the barn! She was born and raised in NY and moved to VT with her husband and daughter in 2011 and she's called the Mad River Valley her home ever since. Becky loves local food, but it's her knowledge of local brews that will "wow" you. Most importantly, she's passionate about planning an event that's perfect for you!

Jack & Doreen Simko

Jack and Doreen are the original visionaries of the Inn at the Round Barn Farm. Who could have known that the Barn would delight and awe so many folks from around the world? They retired from the day-to-day operations in 1995, but we maintain that they are always welcome to join us for a turn at the sink! Before buying the broken down farm and pouring their hearts and souls into its restoration, Jack and Doreen owned and operated a family floral business in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Jack is the youngest graduate of the New York City School of Floral Design to this day, having graduated at age 13. He would take the bus into the city for weekend classes. Jack opened his first flower shop with his father at the age of 14. He and Doreen have been together since high school and have raised 5 children together.

Stephanie "Queenie" Koonz

She blew in one summer day in 1993 and has become a fond fixture here ever since. Afternoon Innkeeper Emeritus, she has taught our current team to take you on a tour, answer all of your questions, and acquaint you with the amenities of your room. She's moved on to her next chapter, which we know will be full of adventure. We miss her everyday while we do the afternoon rounds, bake a new batch of cookies, make dinner reservations, or just catch up with our guests like Stephanie would do.
