The only con I can find with this resort are the fees they charge for all the little extras. Yoga classes, tours, and all the activities for the Mountain Kids club require a fee which averages $20 per child. We stayed away from these activities. We arrived on a Saturday, check in was quick and friendly. Bellstaff meet us at our guest house to assist with luggage. We stayed in 18B. I suggest a 2nd floor unit. The first floor units have a less privacy. There is plenty of great space for children to run around and play all throughout the property. Sunday was Easter. The resort had a complimentary easter egg hunt, which the kids the loved. There were plenty of eggs stuff with great goodies for all the children. Hiking is great around the property. There are so many wonderful trails. A must is the sugar house, if it is in season. Also the Chapel. What a wonderful place! We walked ALL around the lodge. Plenty of fun little spots to check out. There are halls and stairs all over the place to explore.
The views are fabulous on the property. The guest houses, are stocked well. We did not need anything for cooking that was not already there. Face and bath soap are in the two bathrooms, dishsoap for dishes and the dishwasher. Pot holders, dish towels, salt and pepper, and paper towels are all supplied. There is plenty of wood supplied for the wood burning stove. Matches and 7 firestarters are provided. Furnishings are comfortable and homey. Everything in our unit was in great shape and working order. Renovations were being done on one guest house, so I guess the rest will slowly follow. I believe there are about 28 guest houses in three villages. Village 1 and 2 are right next to each other and within easy walking distance to the fitness center and lodge. Village three has 4 guest houses, and is a bit further. I would probably drive if I was not in the mood for a leisurely walk. Each guest house holds 4 units-2 up, 2 down. ours was full, and we did not hear our neighbors. Kitchens in a small work kitchen, not much room, but I doubt anyone booked this resort for the kitchen. :-) The dining has plenty of room, along with the large living room, which are open to each other. Small box TV in a cabinet. If you are a TV fanatic, you will be disappointed. This is also the only TV in the unit. Upper level has a balcony and 4 chairs, lower level has 4 chairs and a patio. Most units you either walk up or down a set of stairs. Our unit was down a set and then back up a se to the unit. I was nothing to us, and we did not mind. There are several units that do not have stairs at all, so ask if it is a concern.
The fitness center is great. There is a playroom with airhockey and ping pong. There is a big chalk board and books to read. A rock climbing wall, fitness room, yoga/class room, sauna, lockers, showers, changing room and a great big warm pool with plenty of chairs and loungers! Warm meaning comfortable to swim~ not too cold, not to warm.
If you have any questions please feel free to email me... Well worth the trip.
We also did day trips to Ben and Jerrys and Vermont Teddy Bear. Plenty of places to hike, bike, shop and eat. We were not here to ski. There was no snow on the ground during our stay, and only a little on the mountain.
