Trip to Killington?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

I'm planning a last minute trip to Killington with my 12yo son in February.  Any clean, inexpensive places to stay?  This trip will be no frills...all about the skiing.  A place with a kitchenette would be a bonus, but not required.  I tried doing a search here, but came up empty.

Val Roc Hotel...less than 1/3 mile to Skyship Gondi Base and maybe 2 miles from Bear Mtn base.

 

Have not stayed there for many years but it's still there and was always clean and relatively inexpensive.

cheap and ok - close to all and it did the job… hope this helps…

Mountain Inn is fine. Friendly place. No frills. No kitchen but they do have breakfast. Very close to the mountain with a shuttle. The in house restaurant, Santa Fe Steakhouse is mot nearly what it once was though. Stay away.

If you want more space and a kitchem Mountain Green condos are good. Even closer.

If you don't mind staying a bit away, there are some motels in Rutland.  Comfort inn suites, Hamtpon Inn etc.

Thanks everyone!  I'll be making some calls today.  My son is stoked.  It will be his 1st big mountain skiing experience.  All his skiing had been done in the Midwest.

As a longtime Killington condo owner, I don't have personal experience with the inns and motels.  I have heard good things about the Mountain Sports Inn which is on the access road.

If you are willing to drive up from Rutland (about 15 miles) that would give you the best value.

Not the cheapest but still cheap is the Butternut Inn. The owner Jim is a nice guy. You get a ridiculously delicious and huge breakfast. They use locally sourced meats.

It's on the access road so you're right there.

I would recommend using the Killington website. They have some great mid-week deals and the site is pretty user friendly.

Thanks.  Looks good. We already booked a place, but I'll keep it in mind for next time.

You can still go there for breakfast and I'm pretty sure it'll be inexpensive. It'll fill you up to the point that you'll probably only need a snack at the mountain.

Val Roc is a bit nicer than Turn of the River - but I much prefer TotR for atmosphere and camaraderie (plus, breakfast is better).
