Jay Peak; inexpensive lodging?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hope to join the eastern gathering at Jay Peak.  Any suggestions?  Not too fussy other than no bedbugs...

Are you driving or staying slopeside? When I was there in '06, you couldn't beat Grampa Grunts for cheap lodging and local flair. It's basically a hostel, but you can get a private room (make sure to specify you want a shower). If there's enough people, your stay comes with (delicious) breakfast. If not, you're on your own. At that time it was something like $27/person and $33 with breakfast. Really funky place - our room had a waterbed and a Tempurpedic, some rooms had a mirror over the bed - weird. There's a community kitchen and game room downstairs where you can hang out and meet some other skiers.


Not sure if a hostel is what you're looking for, but I don't think it gets much cheaper in the Jay area. It's in Montgomery Center, maybe 20 minutes from the resort.

LOL, that's true. The accommodations were a little odd, but it is one of the most memorable places that I've stayed on a ski trip!

Other options are the Snowline Lodge, http://www.snowlinelodge.com/   closest to Jay's access road,  Just a basic motel with a good sit down breakfast included.  I have also stayed in Newport, VT, about 20-25 minutes away at Newport City Motel (or hotel)  another basic motel...last time we state there it was around $60.  Snowline was around $100.


I have never stayed at Grandpa Grunts but from what I understand it is a hostel type situation with shared rooms and bathrooms.

I also stayed at the Newport city motel last year...room was small but fairly nice for a cheap place.

about 20 minutes to the mtn. There are some scary cheap places around and nothing on the access road

looked too special to me.

Last time me and my buddies went we stayed at the Border Motel in Derby, VT.  We found a cheap $50 deal on kayak.com


next time we head up to Jay I think we're gonna look at Grampa Grunt's, it sounds like quite the fun time

Newport City Motel, Border Motel, the motel with cabins that used be called "Top of the Hill" in Newport. There used to be a Super 8 in Newport right off I-91 but I think it's called something else now.
