“summer vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

overall great time summer vacation. location was great, staff was very friendly, also very helpful. Pool was great. overall North Star Lodge is a great place for a summer vacation. The only two problems I had was the air conditioner leaked during a wind and rain storm. I also did not like not being able to unlock the balcony door.

Room Tip: Two visits , two weeks , rooms faceing the mountain were great

We came to Killington from Boston as a birthday getaway. There was a Groupon deal and we decided to take advantage of the deal. The lodge itself is nice, we had no complaints. It had a pool and a mini arcade for the kids. What we really enjoyed was having the whole area to ourselves. Although a ski-city may not have many people in the summer, it’s still a great place to get away from it all. There’s an “adorable” restaurant next door beside a pond and the scenery is June is absolutely gorgeous. It was a nice change of pace from our more busy lives in Boston.

Got a Groupon and went with my wife without children for a weekend. Lodge needs updating - worn out carpet, leaking windows, loud obnoxious "Time Share" guest. Only saving grace was the Fireplace as we couldn't stay in the room due to no heat control. Lodge could have cared less!!!

I guess if you are skiing this doesn't matter, but for an "off" season I cannot recommend...

Room Tip: Don't get a room anywhere near "TimeShare" Guests - the lodge caters to them and will...

We stayed at North Star Lodge in 2011 and had a great time. All the staff were helpful and friendly. The heated pool was great and the game room was entertaining. Have been trying to make another trip back up soon...

Changed room - one was worst than the other. A/c unit right outside of window made it impossible to sleep. The rooms were dated. No other rooms available. breakfast nominal. Pool was small and ackward to get around.

North Star Lodge suited our needs. We wanted a couple of night away and chose Killington. The package we chose was very well priced and included a lobster dinner for two at a local restaurant, but we were not impressed with our dinner, and would not choose this package again if it was offered. Hotel is well situated, courteous reception, clean rooms. It is a place for the ski crowds so it was rather quiet in August but we enjoyed our time there nonetheless. The trip into Killington is beautiful and we plan to make this trip an annual event. The swans strolling the property and swimming in the pond in front of the hotel were a site to behold.

this is an RCI Resort, but can used by anyone if there are units available, The condo units are very nicely furnished. They have full kitchens, and everything you need. The staff is excellent and will help with all your needs. The outdoor pool is nice and open year round. I just love the pool in the winter- snowing while swimming, even making snow angels while in your bathing suit and jumping In the pool afterwards. There are many places to eat and have drinks on the mountain. Hiking, golf, skiing, and much more close by, no matter the season you sit this nice establishment.

Room Tip: condo units are very nice, but for a stay for a few days - the hotel units are nice, especially if y...
