  • Perfect March Break

    "We've been renting ski condos every March break for several years. Our week this year at Killington was just wonderful. This condo was beyond our expectations and everything was exactly as advertised and more. After looking around the mountain, we think the Sunshine Village condo location is the most convenient of all by a long shot and feel very fortunate to have stayed there with the true ski in - ski off. This condo is very spacious, clean, well maintained, comfortable and well stocked. The photos online do not do it justice - it was perfect for our needs. The Recreation centre with the very friendly and helpful staff was a nice bonus which we visited almost every day. Gotta love outdoor hottubs! If we head back to Killington again this condo would be our first choice and we highly recommend it. Most importantly, the owner has been a total pleasure to deal with. Killington itself is a huge mountain with 6 different peaks - it has something for every level skier. We were also very fortunate to get 2 FEET of FRESH snow during our week there in mid-March!"

  • Family Reunion

    "Our experience at Amee Farm rated 5 stars, thanks to the accommodations, breakfasts, home baked cookies for afternoon snacks and the personal attention of Amee Farm Innkeepers Simon and Jessica. They went out of their way to meet the needs of our family of 20 spanning 3 generations. We celebrated with a special, well planned dinner catered by Katie & Kevin which was set up in the spacious lodge and they even handled clean-up. They operate out of the nearby General Store which we frequented throughout the week for hot & cold meals, drinks & a variety of convenience items. Four children ages 6-8 spent hours outdoors in the expansive yard – playing games, watching cows and an occasional turkey in a nearby field, were fascinated by the pond and associated plants, frogs & fish, also climbed rocks and created their own games. One highlight was a guided tour of a nearby goat farm where you can touch and pet these friendly critters and buy goat cheese & milk in the nearby barn. Another attraction is a nearby shallow stream with swimming holes and exciting plants, wildflowers & trails that enticed all ages. There is much space in and near the lodge with activities for kids and adults that included board games in this rustic recently renovated Inn, a ping-pong table & pool table in the spacious lodge area, bike rentals and more. The Inn has many quiet, comfortable locations for lounging, reading and socializing. We purchased delicious organic vegetables grown right across the roadway. You can explore the area to your hearts content on numerous hiking trails, rocky streams with swimming holes and all within walking distance. We also enjoyed walks in Gifford Woods State Park, on Thundering Falls Trail and on trails near Killington and Pico. Both local and distant trails can vary from easy to difficult. In summary, we enjoyed this superb setting for our family celebration that exceeded our expectations."
