“Perfect family ski accomodations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

We have stayed at the bridges probably 6 times in the last couple of years. 2 BR/1Ba, fireplace in living room, kitchen,ski/boot storage in front entry, deck, everything we needed. The common area has a nice pool and game room which the kids love - there's a shuttle to the mountain, but close enough we've walked when we didn't want to wait.

Room Tip: units have either gas or wood burning fireplaces - all the wood you can use provided, so if you have...

We just returned from a two-night stay at the Bridges for Thanksgiving. We rented a 2-bedroom condo; the unit was incredibly clean, well stocked and had a nice homey feel. All the staff at The Bridges were incredibly pleasant and accomodating. We enjoyed the indoor pool, outdoor hot tub and game room. I would definintely recommend The Bridges and hope to return there again in warmer weather!

Clean, pleasant, will appointed town houses. Teens loved it because of pool and hot tub. Had nice game room too and could rent DVDs right there from main office. Fire place was nice addition. Had nice TV, full dining room, nice kitchen with working appliances and pots/pans/glass plate, comfortable beds, nice carpeting. Would definitely stay again. We were here in October (off season) and never felt crowded or heard any neighbors.

Try to book a condo through one of the owners as that may be cheaper than reseving directly with the resort. We do have a family member that is very much into tennis and the instruction is superior here. The condo itself was spacious and comfortable, but be forewarned: there is NO AIR CONDITIONING and this can be an issue if the weather is quite hot (the lower condos can be cooler).
Staff is extremely friendly and accommodating and there is a nice pool with shaded area as well. All around are the views of Sugarbush Mountain, which is breathtaking. This is a place for people seeking some peace and quiet, with perhaps a tennis/swim option and some sightseeing (note: attractions are spaced far apart, not much to do.). It all makes for a relaxing vacation. Would recommend!

We needed accommodations for a number of nights during our skiing holiday to Sugarbush and The Bridges was a perfect fit for our family. We stayed in a two storey, 3-bedroom unit with the master bedroom and bathroom on the upper floor and the kids' bedrooms and bathroom on the main floor.

Our understanding is that each unit is individually owned and decorated with unit rentals managed by the club. That said, our unit we nicely appointed with comfortable furnishings and decent beds. The cable modem based unit Internet, with Wi-Fi was perfect to support our teen's Internet habit and the HD Cable and large LCD TV we well appreciated by our younger kids. We never did get to use the Blu-Ray player but it was very nice to see one in the unit. The springs in one of the couches had definitely seen better days making it a bit of a challenge to get out of but it wasn't ratty or anything like that.

Other things appreciated by the family were the fireplace (I appreciated the nearby supply of split logs), the indoor pool and the games room. For the teenage daughter, the shuttle service was great as it allowed her to knock off earlier than the rest of the family one day and get back to The Bridges from Sugarbush on her own. One other remarkable thing was that the Bridges unit was within the range of our family radios from Sugarbush.

From a daily living perspective, I was very happy with the kitchen and the fact that we had laundry facilities, the latter just off the upstairs bathroom. The kitchen was fairly well equipped including a Jenn Air cooktop and stove, microwave oven, modern refrigerator and dishwasher. Our unit had a good coffeemaker, toaster, and even a coffee grinder and blender. We had a decent selection of pots and skillets as well as lifters/spatulas, mixing bowls. I was surprised to also find baking pans, measuring cups, measuring spoons and some even some spices. The only thing I recall having difficulty with is that the knives aren't quite a nice as those I have in my own kitchen.

All told, we were able to have the kinds of breakfasts we normally like and at our own pace without having to voyage out to a restaurant. We also were able to prepare the dinners that we wanted for nights when we chose to stay in. There's less total living space then we have at home but we were nonetheless very comfortable with room to be away from each other if we wanted. Our unit at The Bridges was a perfect fit for the way we like to live when we're on vacation and we'd definitely chose it again when we next ski Sugarbush.

We've stayed at 5 different Inns, B&Bs, the main lodge, etc. in the MadRiver Valley. Our recent 5 nights at the Bridges was the best, most relaxing, with an excellent location.

Pros:
They have great Sun-Friday deals.
Nice very clean Health Club. Everything, even the fitness classes, are included (except Zoomba) Every day after skiing we bopped over to the outdoor hot tub. The one day the weather was bad (2 inches of rain on January 25th!) there was no one there and we spent the day doing laps and working out.
Easy frequent shuttle access. We did drive whenever we went anywhere, but everytime we went out, we saw a shuttle (again just steps from everyone's front door) picking people up.

Cons: Really none

Suggestions:
Get a unit in the lower level, which is just steps to the Health Club.
The one bedroom condo we had was perfect for a couple, but I wouldn't have 4 people there as it suggests you can, with the other two using the pull out couch. Maybe o.k. for kids. Still there is plenty of room to entertain and cook with a large dining table.

Our second stay at Bridges, and we enjoyed it so much I had to write another review. Our had a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit was well furnished and clean. These are individually owned condos so each unit is a little different. This one had a gas fireplace, but many have wood fireplaces and free wood is nearby. We also had free wifi, which our unit last year did not have. The staff is young but very friendly. The main building has reception, lounge, pool, fitness center, etc. We were there during Martin Luther King Jr. weekend and the hotel was sold out but did not seem crowded--maybe because some owners do not rent their units out but were not there either. We went to the indoor pool and outdoor hottub after a day of skiing and neither were crowded. We would definitely stay here again. Great value.
