Inn of the Six Mountains
Travel Blogs from Killington
Woke up Friday morning and started skiing. Great weather - about 32 degrees. Started off on some slow runs, nice way to bring back the ski legs.
... I found myself wondering why a high powered rifle, telescopic sights and human intelligence isn't enough.
The local supermarket, much like Woolies or Coles, had a wider range of baked goods in some ways than we have, also sold alcohol on shelves in the main supermarket like Tesco did in Scotland and had an in-store Pharmacy. We returned and had corn on the cob as fresh as it gets and spent the afternoon engaged in spending ...

Penelope has an artistic bent and has her own sections of the MIT where she has various artworks. The house has an amazing amount of well utilised space for what appears to be a normal house outside!
We met Dave who had come to do some wiring in the new shed, ...

Heading off in the car we past through beautiful Vermont (almost Fall) countryside. The leaves here are just about to change - had we come a week or so later we would have experienced the wonderful colours of Fall in Vermont.
Passing through the countryside we saw some of the flood damage caused by a hurricane two years back and stopped at a covered bridge over a stream. An unusual sight for us Australians as we don't, as a ...
So, after our morning walk to Emerald Lake we headed north and east to Woodstock. Brenda was keen (not VT) to get some real, farm made maple syrup and cheese. We passed about a hundred signs along the way offering each, also fine woodworking and inns of all sorts. We passed Killington, a big ski area. Very cool. This route, Hwy. 4 will be jam packed with ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Inn of the Six Mountains Killington
Excellent family hotel
we stayed here for 9 days from 8th february (my wife and 3 children -8, 11 and 12 yrs). We thought it was an excellent family hotel. Children loved the swimming pool. Very close to the slopes. Breakfast was sometimes a little crowded but if you have children that wake up early its not a problem!
Food in the evening was very good and excellent value. Mexican restaurant next door also very good.
Thought that the hotel was excellent, plenty of thing to do whilst not on the slopes. The staff were extremly helpful, and the breakfeat was to die for. Apple cider and cookies waiting for you when you coming in from a hard day on the slopes. Rooms were nice. Nice open flame fires upstairs and downstairs.
Stayed here for four nights in mid December 2004 with my wife and 4 year old daughter. We used it as a base for skiing in the Killington resort and had a great time. We arrived on Dec 14th and it was snowing hard. It was great to walk into the lobby with a roaring fire and we had a very nice welcome from the young lady behind the desk. Just the way a ski lodge should be. The room was pretty much a carbon copy of others I have stayed in in the US: two queens sized beds, big TV in cabinet, small en suite bathroom. Some things were starting to look worn and I thought that the place could do with a refurb before too long. We found all the staff very polite and helpful. We ate out on the first night at Casey's Caboose down the road... and regretted it: Terrible service and food, a shame because I had fond memories of the place from 1995! The next three nights we used the Inn's own restaurant and enjoyed it. After tiring ourselves out in the snow we just couldn't be bothered to go out for food. The evening meals were pretty good and reasonably priced. We were first into the restaurant in the evenings and we did notice the waitresses were a bit reluctant to stop chatting and start serving! But once they got on with their jobs they were attentive, especially to our daughters needs. This was especially true at breakfast when they took the trouble to microwave her porridge (oatmeal) just the way she liked it. The breakfast was pretty plain but ample. My only real complaint was that there were no warmed plates for the hot food at breakfast, so it was cold by the time you got it back to the table. On my last morning I tried to warm one myself by running some hot water out the coffee machine over it, until I realised people were staring at me! We didn't use the bar. We all enjoyed the pool and found it clean, well maintained and a nice temperature. My daughter made friends with a boy her age and they enjoyed playing in the hot tub together. There were lots of happy looking children at this hotel and I would recommend it to anyone with a family. I have to say that when we stayed the dollar had just suffered a slump and as a result we found prices incredibly cheap, which certainly added to our enjoyment of the holiday. On our last night we noticed the hotel was rapidly filling with Brits, again probably as a result of the exchange rate. I would say two thirds of the people at breakfast on our last morning were British, most on package tours. So don't be surprised if you go all that way and meet someone that lives in your street!
This place was just okay. We were supposed to stay here for the week, but checked out after one night. The room had definetely seen better days, the couch was torn, bedspread dirty, bathroom dirty and rundown. Just not a well kept place. The picture of the room on the website looked nothing like the deluxe room we received.
Recently spent 3 night here. The reason I booked it was the great rate of $250 for 3 nights. Sounded like a great deal to me. Its a fairly good looking hotel on the outside. Its website was very accurate.
My boyfriend and I stayed here before the prime ski season and had a great time. (You can get a great deal if you stay before the peak season - we stayed at the end of Nov). We did not eat in the restaurant, but the lobby was nice and the room was great for the very reasonable price. The mountain is only a minute away and there are cute 'Vermont-y' bars and restaurants in the area.
Clean and spacious. Dinner was excellent. Excellent service to meet my families needs. Two pools that my kids loved. We have stayed in Killington before and found this property to be far superior. Third floor rooms had skylights that let us see the stars at night.
The first night of our stay, our 2 year old soiled the sheets. After a whole day out on the second day, we came back exhausted, got in our pj's and unmade the beds to find the one bed still soiled YUK! (it was blatantly soiled). Also disappointing was the continental breakfast.
There was fruit loops,cheerios and juice. Nothing else. And the wall paper is peeling in the bathrooms. Definitely not the three stars AAA gives it. Obviously they haven't been there in a while. No one ever addressed my concerns about those dirty sheets.
Top nosh with friendly staff
We are going to the Inn of the Six Mountains for the 3rd year running for our ski trip.The main reason being the quality and friendliness of the staff and the resturant. we never had a bad meal cooked to perfection and very reasonable. In fact our worst meal was dinning out at more expensive resturant were they could not get rid of us quick enough. I think it was because we had a child under 2. So if you are thinking of staying there I would highly recommend it.
My wife and I stayed in this hotel in August 2002.
