Recent Vermont reviews

  • Best rental ever!

    "I've rented places in Vermont before, but none compare to this house. It's very clean and uncluttered, but still is fully equipped with everything you'd need. Our favorites being the grill, fire pit, comfy couches. Oh and the back deck is the spot for sunsets. Lots of stars at night and deer in the morning. The house is on a large open lot that feels private without being too secluded. The town of Chester is close by with lots of fun places to eat like, Smokin Bowls and Stone Pizza. We also found the Springfield Coop to be very affordable. Dan couldn't have been nicer to deal with. I felt more like I was visiting a friend's house, than at a rental. Only problem is one week there wasn't nearly long enough. Can't wait to go back!"

  • Exceeded Expectations

    "We were in town for a swim meet at Middlebury College and stayed with two other couples. The space was perfect! The home is clearly a labor of love and the custom work is beautiful. The location was great, close to the college and also a perfect street to walk on and enjoy the views. We highly recommend staying here!"

  • You can't go wrong here

    "The wife and I with our two teenage boys, found this fantastic condo available for a long weekend. I have been renting ski area condos for week/weekend trips for over 30 years. I must say that this was one of the best I have ever rented. FULLY stocked with everything you could need. Pots and pans in excellent condition. (never had that before in a rental) paper products and everyday supplies were abundant. Firewood right outside the door(never lit a fire) but a stack of starts was there at the ready. The short walk (30 Yards) to the slopes made it an easy start every morning and a great mid day stop. We bought our tickets online ahead of time and found we could pick them up Friday night at the clock tower, this made the trip even better. We never had to move the truck or stand in a ticket line. We skied right to the lift. Found the "Bubble" lift was the only line we had to stand in and avoided it for most of the trip. Never a line at any other lift all weekend. The place is may be a wee bit difficult to find, but we were blessed to have the owners meet us at the bottom with the key and give us a personal tour up the mountain. As for the owners. Two of the nicest people I have met in a long time. I can't wait to speak with them again and rent this unit over and over. If there is a downside, it would have to be the steps. Not everything could be perfect!!!"

  • Perfect location, perfect host

    "My spouse and I have been travelling to Vermont for 30 years. Just discovered Mary's little piece of paradise this year, spent 10 nights in July with our teen aged daughter. Will definitely be returning in both summer and winter. Close to everything, yet perfectly secluded. Mary is the perfect host, very gracious and welcoming, along with her dog Sunny and cat Taffy. Fresh salad greens from the garden were appreciated. Great private swimming pond, fire pit and perfectly equipped cottage. Our daughter loved her little loft which soon became her nest. Chickens and rooster across the road very entertaining and the 3 dozen fresh eggs were the best we have ever eaten. Thanks Mary"

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.
