“Beautiful scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We stayed here for two nights. Our room was large and had a beautiful view of the ski runs. We were here in the fall. The lobby/lounge is very relaxing and has a huge open fire place. It was lovely to sit around and chat with people from all parts of the world. They have a convenience shop to get anything you might need. The breakfast was not very good they need to improve on this. The Manager was very nice and helpful and so were the reception staff. This is a very peaceful relaxing place to stay with breathtaking views. Alhough it must get very cold in winter. Fall time was perfect for us.

Self and spouse stayed here two nights while on a Trafalgar coach tour. This really is a timeshare resort, or perhaps most of it is, though management has found a way to provide short stays. Apart from our coach group of 50 there seemed to be no-one else around. We had the place to ourselves - Yea.
We had a studio which included a fireplace and complete kitchen with all necessary kitchenware. Very, very comfortable and appeared to be unused though we doubt this.
By the provided breakfasts we decided the resort did not normally do this or, more likely, had undertaken cautious purchasing so would have little surplus. However, the stay was very comfortable, the grounds nicely maintained. The log fire out front is a great idea as people can sit around and natter in the snow in season. Who would have thought of a bonfire in the center of what is, effectively, a traffic roundabout. Great stuff - must surely be terrific in winter snow.

Jackson Gore Inn was a great place to stay in Ludlow, VT. They have all sort of all season activities for the whole family. It is a place to enjoy yourself and your family. At the base of a ski mountain, you have a true ski in and ski out experience. And they have spa services. In the spring, summer and fall, there are options other than skiing that will keep the whole family busy!

This the 2nd year in a row that we have stayed at The Jackson Gore Inn for an overnight after a 100 mile team relay race and we will continue to stay here year after year. The Inn, staff, convenience & activities are all top notch. They are great with our late check in (we always call 1st to let them know we will be late) but regardless they are still very welcoming.

Room Tip: We like the 3 bedroom suites for our team. There is a lot of room for many people.

What a great place to reconnect with the family! Just enough activities to keep everyone happy but not so much to exhaust you. I loved the wide open spaces and the areas for the kids to just "play" and be kids. So laid back and relaxing with people walking with their dogs it felt like a special little neighborhood. From the moment we checked in the staff was all welcoming and friendly. The pool was fantastic....where else can you have a view like that while you swim. Our unit was beautiful and clean and so comfortable we actually decided to skip going out for dinner one night and make use of the full kitchen and eat in. This was our first visit but DEFINETLY not our last.

My wife and I take a lot of motorcycle rides into VT (from NJ) and like to stay at different locations. This weekend we headed to Okemo not knowing were we would stay. We drove around and when we saw Jackson Gore we knew we have reached our location. it is a nice resort, with lots of summer activiies. After riding for 6 hours on the motorcycle we just wanted to relax at the bar and have a few drinks. The bar staff was all very nice, as were all in the hotel. Dinning at the hotel was great; we ate both dinner & breakfast at the hotel. It was nice not having to get back on the bike to go out to eat. We didnt do any of the many activities at the Adenture Zone but it looked fun. Rain was threatening in the AM so we just left to head back to NJ. We are thinking of coming back to hit the slopes in the winter.

Jackson Gore Inn sits about two miles past the Okemo Mountain base area. You drive up a short hill and see quality right away: three attractive, newer (4-7 years old for the various buildings I was told) buildings, along with the Icehouse (skating in winter, basketball and tennis in summer) and the Springhouse (indoor heated pool, kiddie pool, hot tub, racquetball, gym, yoga room), and the Roundhouse (function space, I think).

Check in was a breeze and parking is free.

Room: There are a variety of accommodation choices. We stayed in a one-bedroom suite with a separate bedroom with a comfortable king-size bed and its own bathroom with Jacuzzi tub. The living area had a small foyer with tons of closet space (probably more valuable in winter) that led into a small but fully outfitted kitchen (stove, dishwasher, microwave, cabinets, plates, pans, posts, silverware, etc.), and then the living room with a pullout queen sofa (not comfortable!) and a pull-down queen Murphy bed (very comfortable). There is a fireplace (works in summer too) and flat screen TV. We had a great view of the mountain and Adventure Zone.

Food: We ate at the Friday outdoor barbecue. Decent BBQ, nothing special, about $50 for four of us, wine and beer included. Great outdoor dining and sitting space with tables, a fire pit and pretty courtyard area. There is one open restaurant in the summer (not sure why the others were closed -- it would help with variety); food looked good (we did not eat there) but it was pricey and a bit upscale for the only open option. The hotel also had a nice lobby bar for snacks and drinks. While we ate we enjoyed the free summer concert series.

Pools: Two pools, one outdoor, one indoor (in Springhouse) and both heated and nice. The outdoor pool was our preference. It starts indoors with a little swim-in area (to help winter swimmers) and leads outside to a large pool area. There are two outdoor hot tubs, and a large indoor one that must hold 10-15 people. There is a sauna and steam room, and lockers and showers. Very nice. Wish they had food and bar service nearby though. The indoor pool was L-shaped, with an area for lap swimming. There is water basketball and a small slide that is much more fun and fast than it looks. Pool is heated nicely. There's a huge hot tub here too. And there's a nice kiddie area with a small slide and splash pool. We did not use the gym or racquetball but both looked nice; rentals for rackets and balls were inexpensive.

Adventure Zone: So much fun -- I hesitated on spending $49 per person ($39 for hotel guests) but it was well-worth it. Jumping off the 30-foot high platform into the big air bag is terrifying and exciting. Nice mini-golf course (not a cheap temporary one either), trampolines, fun mountain coaster, frisbee golf, a real four-hole family golf course, Segways and more. We spent hours there, sometimes just watching people muster the courage to jump off the big air platform.

We got a good rate due to a promotion for a bicycle race. If not for that, this would be an expensive destination, and that's my only complaint.
