“Awesome view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

This was SUMMER - not ski season. We were heading for Quebec City from Burlington, but the day was so clear and bright that we decided to detour and drive VT105 E via Enosburg Falls and along the Mississquoi R towards Jay Peak. Our gps tells us it will only add one h to the trip. Green. Could be in French countryside. One of the prettiest drives. Jay Peak is a ski resort and Vermont's top public Golf Course. We are able to ride the cable tram to the peak at 4000 odd feet for a panoramic view of Vermont and into Canada. Extremely worthwhile detour. Well run operation. You can buy food at the summit or take a picnic.

“Fun Family Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

I stayed here for a conference, and will be back with my family. My room was in the Hotel Jay, and overlooked the indoor Pump House water park. I have to admit it was loud during watermark hours, but the view was fun. The room was spotless, the bathroom was huge, and there was a luring coffee maker with K cups, which was great. I ate one night at The Foundry, and the food was inconsistent. The crostini appetizer and carrot soup were fantastic, the pasta entree, not so much. This property is gorgeous, and in addition to the water park is an ice rink, beautiful golf course, and hiking trails on what are ski trails I the winter.

“So much to do!! Bring the whole family!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Great place to go with the family!! Skiing is always awesome with usually top snow condition with a huge variety of trails. If you are not a skier, there's plenty of other things to do like skating at the gorgeous rink, swimming at the PumpHouse or floating down the Lazy River. The tube rides are thrillers and the FloRider surf machine looks like a lot of fun although I was not brave enough to try it! All the restaurants are beautiful and serve up fantastic food. We especially love the HighLand BBQ on Fri nights in the summer and also the breakfast brunches in Alice's Table. The hotel rooms are luxurious and the golf course is top class. Bring the whole family or enjoy a couple's weekend!

“Beautiful and so much to do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I had only skied at Jay, but we decided to check out the resort during the summer. The tram ride to the top was only $10.00 and it gave us million dollar views. The skyhaus deli at the top had simple fare, but fresh, and reasonably priced considering we were at a resort and 4000 feet up. The indoor waterpark looked really great, plus it has an outdoor pool too. They also offer golf and an indoor ice rink. Multiple restaurants on site as well. Worth the trip!

“Amazing golf course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

This is the most beautiful golf course I have ever played!
Not easy but views are amazing and course is very challenging. The course is in a fantastic shape, greens are fast, tee-off and fairways are beautiful.
