We just returned from five days at Garnet Hill Lodge and Ski Resort. It was wonderful! We arrived during the brief warm-up to 46F on Sunday, hopeful that ski-friendly temperatures would return. A fall to sub-zero that night brought winter back to the mountain, and the icy conditions on Monday morning were resolved with aggressive grooming by the staff. We... More

My wife & I returned from our annual XC ski trip to Garnet Hill Ski Center today. We've been going to Garnet Hill to XC ski for the past 12 years. Garnet Hill has had an excellent reputation as a first class Nordic ski center for many years. We noticed last year that the trails did not seem to be... More

Dear David, I'm very dismayed to hear that you had such an unsatisfactory experience at our cross country ski center. It must have been this past Monday that you visited us, as that is the only day where the cold weather produced icy conditions on our trails so far this season. And I admit, we did not handle the situation... More

Manicured miles of trails were wonderful. A great mix of pick-your-own adventure trails. We found even the most challenging trails enjoyable. $22/person is a little spendy so we tried to ski as long as possible.

We had a great day renting skis and cross country skiing at Garnet Hill. The trails were well kept and endless. It made for a fun cold day activity, because cross country skiing is a good, warm exercise and the cold wind was blocked by the forest! The trails were beautiful and the meal and fireplace at the lodge was... More

Garnet Hill is an absolute gem of a place. The setting is incredibly beautiful and the trails were extremely well groomed. Ivy and Adam were unbelievably helpful throughout our stay and Adam was a very effective skate teacher. I honestly could not have imagined a better weekend getaway that we experienced at Garnet Hill. Ought to get a 6 out... More

After 30 years of skiing here, we lost faith when former owners let the place go downhill. Under new owners the grooming is back to A-plus. It was a delight to get back on these trails, even if the former trail system is somewhat reduced (apparently they couldn't re-negotiate right-of-way with all the adjacent property owners, as was done in...

Rental equipment, lessons, and well groomed, extensive x-ctry ski trails are available on this mountain resort which is just north of Gore Mtn downhill ski center. We stayed at the lodge years ago in the summer - as a family - and enjoyed it here but just tried the ski trails for the first time and am looking forward to... More

We were looking an outdoor adventure and wanted to avoid the crowds on the long weekend (President's Day [weekend] ). We chose Garnet Hill Lodge. It would be my third time cross country skiing and it could not have been more fun! We skied about nine miles of well groomed trails - Garnet HIll boasts 55k (34 m) of trails... More

We found this wonderful and off-the-beaten-track Lodge by accident and totally enjoyed the unspoilt ambiance, wood fire and excellent food. The service combined the professional with friendly and the views are superb. The bedrooms are a little dated now - but still warm, clean and comfortable. During our stay my husband collapsed unexpectedly. The owners and staff were brilliant -... More
