  • Great Weekend/Reunion

    "Some college friends and I stayed here for a girls weekend after not seeing each other for a few months. It was the perfect place for us to stay - it was cozy and had a nice living room for all of us to just sit and catch up. It was also extremely close to the mountain which made it easy to get around. We all had a lot of fun and are already talking about coming back next year!"

  • Awesome Condo - Awesome Location

    "This condo is really really nice. Very clean and comfortable. Great layout. My wife and I skipped a day of skiing, and enjoyed just hanging out in the condo all day. Both bedrooms are quiet. And the location couldn't be better. Easy quick walk to Village restaurants, ski shop, country store, Ben & Jerry's, etc. Easy quick walk to kids ski camp. We were even able to walk to the Fun Zone with our 4 year old (~10 min walk). The lift is even closer - it's right next to the condo; you just go down a few stairs to the parking lot, walk 20 yards or so to the snow, and then glide right to the lift line. We have been raving about this place to our friends since we returned home, and we'll definitely stay here again."

  • The Big house - Killington

    "This is our second trip to the The Big house- 19 of us in total 5 families. We are all skiers except one who loves to stay in the Chalet and read. Todd is wonderful to deal with and it feels like our second home. We never go out to eat as we love cooking in the Chef's kitchen. Looking forward to spending next New years at The Big House!"

  • Christmas in Vermont

    "What a wonderful Christmas vacation we spent at this house! Having been to Vermont on numerous occasions but never in December (and a few days in January), we were a little apprehensive spending two weeks at this location. It turned out to one of our best vacations ever! The owner was great to work with, giving us not only Christmas week, but allowing us to spend New Year's Eve and a few days after. The home is spacious, well heated, and as promised...the hill behind the house (which was covered with snow) gave our 10 yr. old twin grandsons and their friend several days of exciting sledding and fort building. There is a caretaker to the property only a phone call away to answer questions. We were 7 people for the 2 weeks and an additional 3 people for 5 of the days and there was plenty of room. Just a great time in the city of Wilmington which we've come to love almost as much as our home in Texas!"

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.
