I've been coming here for over 25 years, it's like going home. The food is great Ned and Royal are great, we come with the Delaware ski club. When we are there were treated just like family, I recommend all big or small groups to go. If you're expecting a five star hotel this is not the place for you.... More

Front desk staff was friendly and helpful and made great recommendations for food and area hangouts. We checked in very late and the staff made it convenient for us . The walls were thin and room we had was small, but clean and comfortable. We were there to ski and the room was a perfect place to crash at the... More

This is a nice inn with rustic Vermont charm. The breakfast, which is free with the room was great. The outdoor hot tub was large and very relaxing but only available until 6:30pm. The downside is that the room was tiny with barely enough room to walk around. The room was decorated with old pieces. Mattress very uncomfortable. In a... More

If only I could give a zero, I would. I cannot believe that this is actually an Inn. The room we are in us subterranean and has barely enough room to turn around yet it was billed as "room for four". The front desk staff is rude and pretentious and when issues are raised, they shrug and say oh well.... More

With a great location, AM ski lessons, and transportation to the lift at the front door, it would be hard not to enjoy the Mountaineer. Add three great meals daily, a helpful staff, and congenial participants; the experience can't be beat. The rooms are clean and basic, but the common areas are quite charming. The hot tub in the afternoon... More

Been coming here for 8 years. . Senior all inclusive ski package(BYOB). Can't beat the price. Great food. Staff very eager to be sure you are happy. Hot tub feels so good after a long day of skiing. Don't care for the TVs that were added to the rooms this year. They take away from the old ski lodge feel.

The place is good for what it is - a low cost option close to Mt. Snow. Went there during Christmas weekend. The price was was attracted us to it. I've been to other low cost options near Mt. Snow, and I think the Mountaineer Inn is probably the better of most low prices options around. Yes - the place... More

I was up doing some renovations to my home and needed a place to stay for the night. I called at 6pm and the clerk was very nice and said to come right over. Having owned a place near Mt Snow for over 10 years I have driven by many times and never gave it a thought. When I was... More

Just came from a family reunion hosted by the Mountaineer. The place is clean and very comfortable. The food excellent. The common areas are plentiful. The owners made us feel at home. Our party included young children and all were catered to. Already booked for next year.
