killington lodges

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I am planning my 3 day ski trip with a buddy of mine. It will be our first time at killington and we are really excited, it`s only a 3 and a half hour drive from here. I am trying to figure out where to stay and the choices are plentiful so I need some advice.

We aren`t going with the wifes or kids so we just need a 2 bedroom one bathroom, and with a kitchenette would be nice and a wood fireplace. I guess the most important thing is to be as close to the hill as possible without paying a fortune, maybe 200 a night and under. we will likely go from sunday to wednesday so we miss the weekend rush. any advice is much appreciated.

thanks

I like Killington, esp. on weekdays. The horizontal breadth of the layout gives me a big mountain feel. I'm not that big a fan of staying around main base and main access road areas, but have stayed at places like the Pinnacle condos. I think the condos around Sunrise/Bear Mtn have a nicer, less congested feel. I have had some low budget, enjoyable times staying in motels/condos on Rt 4 and using the Skyeship Gondola base station for a low crowd entrance to the ski area.

Under $200/night with a fireplace and kitchenette....I don't think you will find that.

richie rich, that is not true, I see too many, that is the problem. I find it hard to pick, so I hope to hear from people who have stayed there.

James, thanks for your input.

Stay at the Pinacle. I love it ! No more wood burning fireplaces. STUPID GAS NOW !!! There is a shuttle bus every 15 minutes.

As the owner of a Pinnacle 2-bed/2-bath unit, I (obviously) recommend that complex. Close to all the action and convenient shuttle service so no need to deal with parking lots. Other less expensive choices are Mountain Green and Whiffletree. Pinnacle has a spa with hottub/sauna/steamroom. Mountain Green has full spa with pool in main building (long walk from others however). Whiffletree has no spa.

for the room

thanks Jim H - do they have real wood fireplaces at pinnacle, what abour smoking, do they offer smoking and non smoking ?

The fireplaces in Pinnacle (and Whiffletree) are gas. They are actually the main heat for the unit, controlled by a thermostat. I believe Mountain Green is wood burning. Pinnacle has both smoking and non-smoking units.
