“Epitome of Vermont Ski Lodge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

We stayed here at the end of the busy Presidents Holiday Week and loved it. Its nestled up on top of a hill just down the road from Killington where we had skied for the day. Check in was easy and we met the beloved St. Bernards. We dined in the Saints pub & restaurant which was hopping with guests, cozy and FUN thanks to the magician who came to our table 3X to entertain our 9 year old. My family enjoyed the heated outdoor pool and indoor jacuzzi as well. The room was just so-so - bathrooms, beds & and carpets need updating, hence only the 4 stars. However, breakfast the next morning was EXCELLENT and we would happily stay here again.This place is neat - has many nooks and crannies and I got lost a couple of times :)

Nothing else much was positive. The beds were horrible. The very small room wasn't clean and it was filled with cobwebs and stains on the mattresses, bedding, floors and bathroom. The water in the pool was lukewarm. The breakfast wasn't good. Some of the help was nice but others were just plain rude. The only thing that kept us from being completely miserable were the 3 very sweet dogs.

Love coming to the Summit every year with friends for an annual wine tasting. I have never had a bad experience at the Summit. It is very rustic with a warm and inviting lodge feel. Love all the dogs an look forward to seeing them everytime I visit. Very good food and love the breakfast and staff is always friendly and accomodating. I highly recommen the summit if you are looking for good price and good atmosphere.

We return again and again and find the Summit Inn the place to go. The kids and the adults will enjoy the magic show in the Saints pub on Saturday evenings. Steve, the magician, goes from table to table with his bag of tricks. On Sunday evenings enjoy the unlimited pasta bar. Some of the long standing staff have retired however you will find the peppy new employees friendly and ready to serve you in the Saints pub.

We stay here every season, usually more than once. Yes, it's old and dated and the matresses need an upgrade. But, the decor is homey and in good taste. We happily overlook the drawbacks because its such a warm, friendly and charming place.

Staff is awesome and the Dogs even better.

The location is convenient and the Breakfast is fantastic. We especially love the Blueberry pancakes.

This is a diamond in the rough and we were pleased to see the new tv's this year. If management were to invest in higher quality mattresses, pillows and bed linens, the place would be heaven.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are much quieter.

Think of a Currier and Ives winter scene,The snow is falling and a sled with a family glides up to the Summit Lodge.The children are excited and the parents are happy.Step inside and be greeted by the friendly staff and the 2 Saint Bernard dogs Rachael and Teddy.We have been going to the Summit many years and have never been disappointed. The entire lodge is rustic wood decor,The family room is large and inviting with a huge fireplace that we sat before every night,The food is excellent there is a heated pool and hot tub a sauna and a great bar restaurant.The rooms are clean and give the feeling of antique furniture to relax in and forget about the busy world you left behind.Inn keeper,owner Bill Bauer is very friendly and professional He is about the hotel all the time and even took time to discuss whats going on in the Kiillington region.My family never had such a relaxing and exciting vacation that we experienced at the Summit.We plan to return in the summer the lodge has air conditioned rooms with new LCD TV's.When I went back to work I couldn't stop thinking of our step back in time.

Room Tip: There are a few family rooms that can accommodate a large family

This is my first time to Vermont and i stayed for Valentines day thru the weekend. Upon arrival Lera gave me a brief tour. Through out my stay she was VERY helpful. Bill who i didnt realize was the inn keeper til the second to last day i was there also was great with providing us details where to go shop and eat in woodstock.

The Summit is PERFECTLY located with in a mile or two of great restaurants and Killington mountain. We had dinner the first night at the Summit and the food was delicious. I then ate at Birch Ridge Inn, Peppinos Ristorante and On the Rocs Lounge. I will leave reviews for each when im done with this one but i must say if you are going to go out and eat these 3 spots were unbelievable!

Now the Summit isnt a 5 star resort but it isnt a 2 star either. its tough to rate it cus it has a lot of good and little things that they should take care of to make it even better. Rooms are very small i will say but i didnt come to stay in the room. tv's are fine. bathroom a tad small but who cares. the mattress on the bed i felt every spring. rooms have no iron so u must go to front desk and ask for one. if you want room service you have to ask the day before to get breakfast. Hot tub is good but get there early cus the kids will take over the area. pool i didnt get to try i just didnt think i can go out into the cold to stay in it and risk getting sick. game room is eh. they do have a washer and drier. It is a bit old but like i said its just the little things that make a potential 2-3 star resort into a 5 star. Plus side is they have a place for you to leave ur skiis and boots and lock it up at night.

When i come up again i will definitely look into staying here but will also look around to see what my options are.

If it is your first time skiing go to snow shed.

DO NOT MISS BREAKFAST. It is delicious!!!! wish i wouldve taken advantage of it instead of sleeping in and missing it. breakfast ends at 10am

Ask for a room with a view of the mountain.

Room Tip: second floor even number rooms have a beautiful view of the mountains.
