  • Review for the condo!

    "Great condo nearby the mountain! (only 3 miles). We had everything we need in the condo (from cooking ustensils to bath sheets). The condo itself is small, but we had enough space for the 4 of us (4 adults). I found the place very safe, with the combination and the hidden key in a lock. Unfortunately, the hot tub was not working :-/ Also, the place was really cold when we first came in. Except those two points above, everything was perfect! We slept very well - very cozy place. Also, the owner was really easy to talk to and we had great communication! Overall, I recommend this place without a doubt!"

  • a real gem

    "All the rave reviews did not disappoint. Our family of four, including a 12 and 9 year old, enjoyed a wonderful three night stay over MLK, Jr. holiday weekend. The cottage is impeccably clean, with lovely linens (something I always worry about when traveling). The loft was so charming I was sorry I had promised it to our children! Bathroom is rather small if that concerns you, but certainly functional (although I did not find an outlet). My family spent some time at Mad River Glen skiing; but, we also enjoyed snowshoeing, xcountry skiing, and sledding over the beautiful farm. Scott and Pat were kind enough to provide the sleds. They have a lovely setting here, are the perfect hosts, and we look forward to returning again. As a side note, if you are looking for a place to eat, we were happy to have stumbled upon the Big Picture Cafe in Waitsfield for dinner our last night... not at all what you might expect from the outside. Loved the atmosphere, delicious, healthy options, and friendly service."

  • Nice condo with screened in porch, big tvs, and lots to offer

    "We really enjoyed this cute condo in Stowe, which was nicely remodeled (much cuter than the other condos at this resort). Owner Leslie was very attentive and answered all my questions very timely. The kitchen and bedrooms were quite small but the super comfy beds and linens, 3D tv in LR, flat screen in master, lots of movies, WiFi, and the big screened in porch made up for it. Having the washer and dryer in the condo was great for midweek laundry. My parents were with us, and this particular condo had only 5 steps from the parking lot. Some of the others had many, MANY more steps up or down. This resort had lots to offer (indoor pool, game room, sauna, jacuzzi, free movie rentals, extra kitchen equipment, tennis courts, basketball court, playground, midweek towel exchange) and was in a convenient location half way between the mountain and town, off Mountain Road. Our family hiked to 3 of the area waterfalls, Bingham Falls was the favorite because of the huge (freezing cold) water hole at the base of the falls for swimming and jumping off rocks. We went to the Chin, once by auto toll road and Long Trail, but husband and son hiked Hell Brook Trail up and Long Trail down on the north end of the mountain (be sure to buy a hiking map at one of the bike shops). The shops in town were fun, but not very many. Our fav was the Mercantile with all the samples. So much to do, so little time- we didn't put a dent in the list. Very fun area for summer vaca. Could have easily spent more than a week here. Oh and the CHEESE- we totally overdosed on cheese samples at Cabot Annex."

Killington Travel Tips

Picture cascading mountains covered in fresh, powder-white snow towering over a lovely little town filled with welcoming smiles and warm hospitality. Sounds like a postcard, but Killington brings it to life, and you can experience it for yourself.

Killington is a cozy town snuggled in Rutland County, Vt., and features seven stunning mountains, making it one of the most sought after ski destinations in New England. You'll find some of the highest and most varied terrain here covering more than 90 miles. When the weather warms up, there's still plenty to do for outdoor enthusiasts. Killington also offers a plethora of biking and hiking trails to enjoy when the snow melts.

Golfers will appreciate the two PGA courses here with 12 others just a short drive from town. And with scenic beauty around every turn, it's a great place to take a long drive or walk around. When you're ready to venture back inside, head to a local restaurant for a hot, delicious meal or check out the opportunities to see live artistic performances as well as attractions where you can learn more about this quaint village's history and culture.

Things to Do in Killington

- Killington Ski Resort: Skiers and snowboarders are sure to spend most of their winter getaway exploring the Killington Ski Resort, which offers 155 different trails suitable for all skill levels - from beginners to pros. There are also six terrain parks with more than 50 features, including two pipes, so boarders can practice tricks to their heart's' content. The mountains get around 250 inches of natural snowfall each year, providing plenty of powder to keep everyone happy all season long. When you need a break from the slopes, there's also a tubing park, snowcat-drawn sleigh rides, snowmobile tours and snowshoeing, so you can really get your fill of winter activities!

- Killington Arts Guild Gallery: Those who appreciate art will want to stop by the Killington Arts Guild Gallery, which features paintings, sculptures, prints and photography on display from guild members. Gallery shows are held every three months on a rotating basis, and an opening reception takes place the first Saturday of each show. Peruse the different mediums and if you find something you like, the pieces are also available for purchase.

- New England Maple Museum: Vermont is known for its delicious maple syrup, so it's worth taking a short drive to Pittsford from Killington to visit the New England Maple Museum. It's nestled into the foothills of the Green Mountains where the best syrup is made. As you explore the museum you'll move through more than 200 years of maple sugaring history, beginning when Native Americans learned that map sap cooked over fire created a sweet treat. The museum also features the most complete collections of sugaring artifacts in the world. After the tour, be sure to stop in the gift shop to stock up on all things maple flavored.

- Mountain Muse Massage Therapy: After days filled with skiing or snowboarding, you're body will surely need a break. Treat your tired, achy muscles to a little pampering at Mountain Muse Massage Therapy. Michelle Durney has been massaging clients since 1998 and her style incorporates both Swedish and deep tissue techniques for a completely relaxing experience that will ease the tension out of stubborn knots. Book a 30, 60, 90 or 120 minute massage and allow yourself to completely let go of all stress.

Dining in Killington

- Liquid Art: For an eclectic and exciting experience head to Liquid Art, a local coffeehouse art gallery. You'll find an espresso bar with specialty coffee that's perfect for waking you up in the morning, and the shop also serves small breakfast items and snacks in case you're a little hungry. After a quick bite, peruse the paintings, jewelry, pottery and more that's all for sale.

- The Lookout Tavern: This local eatery serves up classic favorites like soups, salads, sandwiches and burgers, all of which can be enjoyed while you take in unbeatable views of Killington. The game room and pool table provide some extra entertainment opportunities for before and after lunch or dinner. Try the chipotle chicken wrap, left coast burger or pan seared ahi tuna.

- Sunup Bakery: For breakfast and lunch, Sunup Bakery is an excellent choice with options like pastries, bagels and breakfast sandwiches. The bakery provides some of the area's best sandwiches, including plenty of vegetarian options, and delicious hot soups that are perfect for warming up on a chilly day. It's a lovely spot to spend some time before hitting the slopes or exploring the town. If it's warm enough, take a steamy cup of coffee out onto the deck and enjoy a lazy morning reading the local paper or a good book.
