We went to Jay Peak for two nights, it was a case of wrong people at the wrong hotel. We were 47 over 50's,on a sightseeing tour who just wanted a nice hotel( which this was), but with a swimming pool for leisurely swimming and a jacuzzi after a days coach touring. What we got was a waterpark experience, which would have been great if we had kids with us, but we didn't.
Our room looked directly into the water park where the kids were shooting out of the slides, it was next to the generator room and was unbelievable hot and noisy. We got a move for the second night with no fuss , which was fine and and our view was of the peak, so we were happy.
The room was fine, staff very efficient and helpful.
There are a couple of restaurants which were reasonable.
We went up in the cable car to the top of the peak and walked down. For some unfathomable reason we were told at 10.30 am we could not go up the peak until 12 noon. By 11.40 they realised 40/50 people were getting frustrated waiting and they sent the first car out 15 mins early, as though it was some magnanimous gesture. Big deal !!! it was stupid keeping everyone waiting
I can imagine for skiers especially families this would be a great venue. There is also an ice skating / ice hockey arena, also a very well stocked shop selling food for self catering and alcohol.
There were quite a lot of ladybirds outside but not really worth mentioning.
