What a great way to get away! I give a very big thumbs up to The Weider Lodge Resort. We stayed for three days in The Weider with an 8 month old baby and it was just perfect! Very clean, organized with all you could need or want. We stayed from Sunday to Tuesday and it was quite affordable, through Expedia ( $ 150.00 per nite ) . We also extended our stay on the 3rd day until 7:00 p.m. and were only charged $ 39.00. Good deal and very helpful with packing up and much needed nap for little one.
Highlights: Fireplace ( just one click away from a cozy fire )
Soaker bath tub!
Cushy bed ( play pen made avail. for baby plus hi chair )
Fully stocked kitchenette
Balcony with pool and mountainside views
Two flat screen televisions
Very clean one bdrm condo with all you could need
Staying at The Weider, we were merely steps to all of the charm of The Village. This was my first time even going to Blue Mountain, so what a treat! Our lodge had its own pool, but you can also pay to go The Plunge with your kids. Our pool was just fine.
We brought some of our own food, but The Village has its own market with food, toiletries and movies you can rent at an affordable price.
Surrounding us were wonderful restaurants, shops of all kinds, beautiful patios & kayaking or paddle board on the lake. Very picturesque and quaint. We took the gondola up the mountainside and hiked with our little one. Note to parents: not a place to bring a stroller - even an umbrella stroller. Too many rocks / uneven terrain. But, wonderful with a Bjorn!
One negative: I would not waste your $$ on The Plunge ( additional pool with slides and an indoor option for little ones ). From the outside, it looks fun. There is a slide and other interests for kids. But, it is $ 14.00 per person to go in!! And, that's for 3 hrs., not per day. No better than your hotel pool experience. I would say, if you have rambunctious kids and need them to be occupied, then do it. But, realize you will be out of pocket quite a bit and the time is limited.
We loved our stay in The Village at Blue Mountain!! We are definitely going back when there will be a fun festival and enjoying even more. Great family trip........... just fell in love with it all!
