We booked this place paying top dollar for Xmas time having top expectations. But it turned out to be a miserable stay. The place was under construction when we first walked in. Apparently they were recovering from Hurricane Irene which happened about 4 months ago which is ridiculous. The owner of the place did not touch a thing the opening day of the season. So I think it is OK in his view to have guests walking in to their rooms passing through a construction time.

Do not expect to have breakfast at time. We were told breakfast starts at 7 am. Forget about it. You are lucky to find anybody in the kitchen before 8 or 9am. And some days nobody shows up at all. The building is so old and noisy. You can literally hear everything happening upstairs and downstairs.

Overall, do not go to this place if you are looking for a nice ski vacation.Period.

Don't let the exterior deceive you. My kids' faces fell when they first saw it, as it is right on the street and looks quite run down. But we all LOVED the rooms - charming, spacious, and nice bathrooms (we had the 4 bedroom suite, which was a lot of fun for them). The pool was fine -- clean, but quite cold and a few nasty flies around! One of our rooms didn't have a fan, but maybe if we'd asked for one more it could've been provided. The breakfast was fine, and the staff working were extrememly helpful and friendly. Perhaps it was a bit overpriced, but otherwise a very nice summer stay.

Room Tip: If you have a large family, my kids LOVED the "sleeps 9" railroad style suite with 4 rooms...

We loved this place and will be going back this winter to ski at Killington. The place is rustic and unique. Like no other I stayed in before. We appreciated all the rich history. The original post office window where Calvin Coolidge picked up his mail from is in the bar. There are great old pictures from the 1800s and Al was kind enough to give us a bit of a history lesson. Our room was fabulous and breakfast hit the spot. Looking forward to our return trip!

We were disappointed in the Salt Ash Inn. We found the property poorly maintained on the outside. Our room was not clean and decorated with garage sale type furniture.

A positive comment was the person in charge was pleasant and helpful.

We loved the Salt Ash Inn. Al was the best. It is a very relaxing environment. Played volleyball outside, some of our family swam in the pool. Took lots of photos in the garden area out back. Our rooms were great. We stayed in the modern part and our rooms were extremely clean and our bathrooms were oversized and great. We really enjoyed our stay and would go back again for sure. Great value for price!!

When I saw a room listed with a fireplace for less than $150 and no minimun stay... I didn't even look at the list of other rooms at the inn! We stayed in the older part of the in, very rustic - it had full timber beams in the ceiling! It was extremely clean and cozy. Bed was comfy too.
I think we were there on a slow weekend, I was kind of hoping the huge circular fireplace in the bar would be on. The owner Al offered to get it going, but we were tired and said not to trouble himself, we'll sit in front of the one in our room.
We sat and talked with Al for a bit, he was very friendly.
Breakfast was simple, but did the job. Made to order eggs and hashbrowns, cereals, juice and coffee.
Would definitly stay there again.

The Salt Ash Inn is conveniently located near Killington and Okemo Ski Areas in Calvin Coolidge's hometown of Plymouth, in Vermont.

The Inn is a very casual, home-style Vermont Country Inn, think about it as a home full of friends you haven’t met yet. The main building is rich in history and much of our furnishings are antique and rustic. The main building has been an 1830s stagecoach stop, a general store and even a post office. The Inn has undergone many updates over the years and recently underwent a major renovation after damages caused by Hurricane Irene. It now offers 13 uniquely decorated guest rooms (all with private baths, individually controlled heat, TV's and telephones with free domestic calls). We offer warm common areas for lounging or reading, a cozy rustic Country style bar with pool table, gas fireplace, and some of the most unique furnishings you will find anywhere. ... more   less
