“Vermont Charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

I am hesitant to write this review because I don't want everyone else to know about it! I only wish we found this hotel when our kids were younger because they would have loved it. We typically rented condos ski in/out with kitchens so that we could come home for lunch or breaks. The trade off of not having that may have been worth it. The lodge is nothing fancy but is full of charm. The large fireplace in the common area became our "family room" for two nights (my husband and I and another couple). We met other guest, most of whom were return visitors. The outdoor pool and indoor hottub were just what we needed after a day of skiing. The Pub is warm and welcoming, with great food! The dogs added to the hominess of this wonderful lodge. Be sure to buy the cookies on your way out. YUM! I hate to go to the same destination more than once but we will definitely return to the Summit Lodge.

This hotel was amazing! Since I'm a kid, this is the perfect hotel for families (Actually, anyone). They have two saint Bernard s and a French bulldog. I was first expecting a modern quieter hotel. I'm glad it wasn't. The space is great to explore and safe, so kids can run around as much as they want. The dogs are a great add on as well. Amenities: huge living room w/ fireplace, back door, tables, couches, and chairs and board games, a pub with nice staff and pretty good food, a whirlpool hot tub, two outdoor pools one of which is open in winter (that's right, an outdoor pool (of course it's heated)), a ping pong/special occasion room, a library, hold on, there's more, a library, an arcade room, and plenty more, spread out among 3 floors. If you.'re skiing at nearby Killington mountain, hiking, or just staying in the area, you must stay here.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the back. The nearest amenity is the game room. It is much easier to get sleep.

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.
