Best Things Nearby:Best skiing in New England just one mile up the road. Plenty of restaurants in Killington Village, but the best one was right across the street.Best Things About the Resort:Heated outdoor pool, heated to 102 degrees! Free coffee. Resort Experience:It's a small-size resort, perfectly located just 15 minutes' drive from the Skyship gondola. It's not in Killington Village; it's on the south side of things, which is better because it's not as crowded over at the Skyship, and you can take gondola straight to the top! The room was nice and recently redone. It had a private balcony which was nice. We were on the upper floor in a studi...Read More

We went to this place because it was right across the street from the Cedarbrook timeshare we were staying at. It was very good. It was around 8pm on a Sunday, so it wasn't very crowded. The people next to us said that they had come on Saturday night, and it was a 45-minute wait for a table. It had a nice atmosphere similar to a Vermont country store, with a lot of wood, exposed beams, a fireplace that was going, and a lot of like those old antique sort of advertisements, license plates, and what not. The food was so good! They had excellent seasonings. It wasn't inexpensive, but nothing in Killington really is. We had: Appetizer – pan-seared escargots sauté...Read More

Bear Paw Restaurant

Of all the restaurants on Killington mountain proper, this was the best lunch spot. It was less expensive and just better-quality. The rest were more cafeteria-style. This was an actual restaurant with waitstaff. If you are going for the view, go to the Summit Lodge, but if you are going for the food, check out Bear Paw. We had the Haddock filet, which came with fries for $9.95, which was very tasty. We saw some other people getting the wraps and salads, which also looked good. They had a good selection of beers on tap, and a nice cosy fireplace. You could get there by car, but we chose to ski in. You take the Sun Dog trail, and then can take a lift right from the restaurant back to the ...Read More

We came here because of the free chicken wings during happy hour, and because we had heard about it from other people we met who had said they liked it. We didn't like it. We went on a Monday at like 4:30pm. It was way, way crowded (I supposed because it was happy hour). They didn't have any drink specials (just the free wings), which you had to muscle your way through to the bar to get. The wings were good, nice and spicy. They didn't let you go anywhere but the bar with your free wings. Tables were for dining only, so it was standing elbow to elbow with your bowl of wings. My husband wanted to sit down, so we sat in the "caboose" chairs, which was a novelty, and got nachos w...Read More

It's huge! There is something for everybody. But whatever you do, don't take the Juggernaut on regular skis. What a mistake that was! It's totally, totally flat. It took like 4 hours to push myself along it. It was agony! The Great Eastern is the best way down, and a very nice long run. It's easy without being boring. You have to go for more than one day. There is really something for every level on this mountain, from most challenging to very easy. What sets this resort apart is the great terrain, vertical drop, and the GONDOLAS! It is sooo much better to ride to the top in a nice cozy gondala then freezing your butt off out in the elements on a chair lift. You can gondola all the wa...Read More
