Thread Starter 

Looking for a cheap stay with a sauna or hot tub on premises and as close as possible to the K1 base lodge. Can anybody provide recommendations?

North Star Lodge has reasonable rates and a large outdoor heat pool.  The are on the access road.

I like the Killington Pico Motor Inn.  I think it's like a 5 or 10 minute drive from the base area.  They have an outdoor hot tub and free waffles for breakfast.  Last year it was one of the cheapest places around.

No sauna or hot tub, about a 20 minute drive but at $22 (no tax) a night including a full breakfast I ain't complaining.

Turn of the River Lodge is very reasonable.  Includes a very simple breakfast.  Close to Bear and a few miles from the access road.

I have done the Turn of the River Lodge, its a very lodge based experience. Not good if you are looking for privacy unless you get the house or a private room. If you are going with a large group it is a lot of fun and a lot of groups mingle with each other.

 

No hot tub etc thou.

LOL, I highly doubt you called this place.

 

It's a private club & the rate I quoted is for members.

 

Now if you knew a member & was invited to stay the guest rate is $33 a night with full breakfast.

 

Add on $12 for members & $18 for guests on weekends when they also serve Sat. night dinner.

 

Usually have a free coctail hour on weekends too.

 

Only members can make reservations for guests & are responsible for them.

 

The house sits on 22 acres in the middle of town & sleeps 48 comfortably, dining room seats 70, full commercial kitchen, good sized living room with fireplace & a large party room with fireplace.

 

This is my home away from home during the winter & you'll usually find me there most weekdays between Jan.- April.

 

I"m only there a few days before the holidays.

 

If you want to save a few bucks go to the website I posted above to get 2 for 1 Killington tickets. They're good up to Dec. 24.

 

I have a few good thru Jan. but they're not offering those anymore. I'll give those to my friends since I already have a season pass.wink.gif

So was this relevant to the question at all or did you just want to show off your private club? Doesn't really sound like it addressed the OP's question in the least as it meets exactly no criteria whatsoever for what he was looking for. 

 

As for the actual question--I second Killington Pico Motor Inn, though it's been about nine years since I was there. It was around 50 bucks at the time for a double room, if I remember right. It had a hot tub, but can't recall a sauna (I never use the sauna, so I wouldn't remember either way). There was a bar in there and it was on the shuttle route to Killington.

The question was cheap places to stay near Killington. I think I addressed that.

 

Besides the club is always looking for new membership so whats wrong with a little promotion.

 

It's not for everyone, but for those who would enjoy that scene & meet new friends with like interests it can't be beat.

 

To me it's far better than being cooped up in some cheap motel room.

Sorry I meant I called the turn of the river lodge. All old farm houses look alike to us New jersey folk. They wanted 80 dollars a night for a room, on there website it says between 50-82 for a private room and then 25 for just a bed, but the best they offered me was 70 bucks. Looks like killington pico motor inn it is. My only criteria is a clean room.

<The question was cheap places to stay near Killington.>

 

That was the title. The question was:

 

"Looking for a cheap stay with a sauna or hot tub on premises and as close as possible to the K1 base lodge."

 

Your option wasn't really cheap (unless membership is free); doesn't have a sauna or hot tub and isn't that close to the base.

 

Nothing wrong with promotion, but why not start a thread where such promotion makes sense.

 And you care why??????????

 

By the way membership is cheap ($90 annual).

 

As for the Killington/Pico Motor Inn (your recommendation) I believe that's where they house all the foreign lift attentants/other employees the mountain hires during the winter.

 

If that's your scene go for it.

 

I believe my option was better.

 

As for cheap motels there are a slew of them down in Rutland about 20 min from the mountain. The cheapest I believe is the Highlander which is just up the road a piece north from the intersection of of Rt. 4 & 7 on 7

 

Besides I showed where to get 2 for 1 tickets which could save the guy enough money so he could stay at a better place.

I care because I was reading the post and you basically went on an agenda pushing some private membership club that wasn't relevant. If it met the OP's criteria (or even any of his criteria) or you at least explained it fully in the first post, I couldn't care less. Otherwise it just seems like you're wasting time with nonsense.

 

Your option may well be better, but not for what he was looking for. And I don't recall seeing any "foreign" lift attendants or employees; it's just a motel.
