Looking for decent motel/lodge with pool for next Sunday near mountain < 4 hours from Boston.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Thinking of going up to VT or ME next Saturday to ski one day Sunday with the wife and kid.  Would like to find a place to stay that isn't a total dump and has a heated pool (indoor or out but open in winter) so we could hang out and play before dinner when we get up there Saturday.  

 

Willing to travel up to about 3.5 hours from Boston and would like to hit a place with good early spring skiing.  Would like to hit a mountain we know since we have a 7yo that tends to look for trails with scary names.  Some mountains of interest would be --

 

Sugarbush

Sunday River

Loon

Okemo

Stowe

It's pricey, but Jackson Gore Lodge at Okemo has a great outdoor pool.  Also you can order smores and eat them in front of the fireplace in the lobby.  The kid would love that.

It seems like everything I find is either a total dump or $>350/night.  Claybrook at SB was something like that.

 

I search online and there's a BestWestern in Waterburry right of 89 that looks reasonable but I don't know if they have a room.  If they did, it's 1/2hour from SB which wouldn't be bad.

We've stayed at the Riverside Inn in Stowe. Reasonably priced, and pet friendly, in case you're interested.

Quite a few nice pools you can use at Smuggs. No dump there for sure. See if you can book for Mountain Laurels, Moores Highland or Sycamores (or some others -- just ask the customer service). These units have their own heated outdoor pools. Otherwise, there is always the main pool.

 

Just a word of warning... They may be pretty pricy for a single night stay.

 

Good luck.
