Centrally located in the Heart of the Green Mountains, The Rustic Charm of Turn of River Lodge makes it a true GEM in Killington Flats! On the main floor the Great Room's cozy fireplace warms this welcoming space. The Turn of River Family is welcoming, friendly, helpful, caring and interesting! You are NOT going to stay in your room are you? I do not think so! ...In the evenings friendships are quickly formed in front of the massive fireplace, play board games, card games, enjoy an adult beverage and TV/music (Struggling to keep the fun at a mild roar we are reminded there are quiet hours (930p)but fun is had by all!) Plans are made to Hike, Bike, Ski and traveling to see all of Vermonts Treasures! :) In the mornings lifelong friendly relationships continue to grow at the long family style table. Breakfast Service is of the Continental variety with offerings of Coffee, Juice, Hot water for Tea and Oatmeal, Fruit, Yogurt, a selection of Breads/Bagels (seasonal favs Pumpkin, Cranberry & Specialty breads), Cream Cheese/Peanut Butter/Jams, a selection of Cereals (one is Gluten free), Milk and Almond Milk (lactose free option)... in addition... the Seasonal offerings consist of a local favorite, Homemade Apple Bread with an apple layer that turns this bread into the culinary delight that is OFF the charts, like an apple pie inside of a bread (& a bit addictive actually. Be aware ;)) , and the "Super Star Quiche"... OH MY!! Absolutely LOADED with fresh vegis and Vermont Cheddar. These Seasonal Favorites are a pleasant surprise offering that bump up the Continental Breakfast to the next level to be sure! ...Add the impossibly clean atmosphere and its a 5 STAR rating for this traveler!!! Ever witness a white glove test in ANY hotel? I have!! Being rurally located I am certain the spiders LOVE to make this home their own... They can try! ;p lol On on the main floor there is a guest refrigerator (in the "Game Room" as well as a microwave and dishes/flatware (in the Dining Area). Leave all your dirties on the tray and its all magically cleared away. (I love this part!) I almost forgot! ...The 3rd Floor has a cozy and quiet library with a love seat, 2 arm chairs and lamps to read by. Stair Therapy... Whether you're upstairs in a private room (choose private bathroom or shared bath), downstairs in the budget friendly dorms (Takes many back to college days, Hostel style... its not fancy, but if you need a clean bed to rest and clean bath it suits the bill... AND BREAKFAST IS INCLUDED!!) or rent the private rustic cabin (sleeps 8) you're in for a treat! There are NO bad views in the Beautiful State of Vermont plan to see them all as Turn of River Lodge is conveniently located minutes from Killington Mountain, 5 min to Skyship Gondola (Open Winter Season), 30min to Woodstock and 45 min to the Quechee Gorge. Whether your'e visiting in the Winter Season or Summer Season Turn of River IS the place to stay!…
Stayed here for 3 nights and next day I wake up with the flu. Walked in healthy, walked out feeling like sh*t. Clearly they don’t clean sheets, comforters, or bathrooms after guests stay. Guess we will see if any more 1 stars pop up within the next week for sicknesses. Wouldn’t be surprised
An overall fantastic experience. My 6 friends and I ventured to Killington for a ski weekend and were not disappointed by our accommodations. 1. Location: within 10minutes drive to Killington, 5 minutes to Skyskip gondola parking lot. 2. The room was what we wanted for the price. 2 bunk beds and 3 twins +a bathroom. 3. Breakfast was perfect for a quick pre-ski pick me up. Great cereal selection! 4. The 1st floor of the lodge served as a common room for eating and socializing. A true highlight of the stay, my friends and I met and played board games with new friends from all over the world. 5. Would 100% recommend for big groups. Will 100% be back.
My parents and I stayed here for one night on our way home from Maine. I wish we had stayed longer, this spot was a gem. The common rooms are cozy with comfortable chairs, plenty of books and a fireplace downstairs. Many of the rooms had a shared bathroom, but we did have a private room upstairs. The breakfast provided in the morning was awesome, and we had great company for communal dining. I had the best sleep of the trip here. Can't wait to go back!
What a wonderful place and in such a great location.Driving to it you go through all of these small towns with neat stores and restaurants.When you walk in you feel so comfortable.We were greeted very warmly by the owner and innkeeper.Lots of couches and chairs and decorated to perfection.They have many rooms with all kinds of beds and shared bathrooms.We had a room with a twin bed and double bed but we had a private bathroom.The beds were great and we slept very well.In the morning they have a nice continental breakfast and you can sit at a long table and talk to other guests.Everyone was so friendly.Such a great place.
I have visited almost more than fifteen ski weekends over the last three years. This is the only place for me. Great spot. Lots of different ways to stay here, from large groups to solo bunkers. Love it. Nice owners, great on site hosts, good company apres ski.
After booking my stay, I received a greeting from the lodge on my e.a.t. Upon arriving it looked small from the outside, but was I wrong upon first glance. The people were super nice and showed me the map (yes a map, it wasn't small) to my room. The neighboring room was playing some annoying music quite loud, but I was so tired, I didn't care. I fell right to sleep, and it was one of the most peaceful sleeps I had all week! Went down for breakfast and choices were minimal, but it worked. My first time in a B&B. Very nice place overall
my wife and I honeymooned here in 1968 and it has not changed the same great lodge.The ownership has changed but not the warm friendly atmosphere. The manager Victoria had everything ready for our arrival. We had breakfast each day at sugar and spice the price was reasonable and the food was delicious and plentiful. The lodge has a cold breakfast but we oped to spoil ourselves after all it has been 50 years since our first honeymoon. You don't need air conditioning they have window fans and you are in Vermont summer nights are cool.
This a a place for folks who are interested in the great outdoors instead of pricey, stuffy hotels. Turn of River Lodge is your place at the mountains that you're sharing with friends you haven't met yet! This was our first stay here. We'll definitely be back. It's just like a place we stayed at when I was a kid. Put your feet up, have a drink, play solitaire or invite others to play cards or a board game in the great room/dining area. Or just share stories and tips about the local skiing and beyond. There a microwave and large guest fridge. A great fireplace and plenty of wood. Indoor storage for skis and boards. Clean and plenty of hot water in the shower. A variety of rooms and sleeping arrangements. The hosts are accommodating. There are a number of regular guests who were friendly and welcoming too. Not a lot of protein with breakfast. I brought microwavable eggs to augment the continental breakfast. Great coffee. Fresh, store-bought bread and bagels. Cream cheese and peanut butter are also served with breakfast. They have a room for waxing and tuning your skis or board. I had a great time, my 18 year old daughter was along. She really liked the dorm style room we had the first night. I like it fine. It's a great way to stay near the mountain at a very reasonable price. I liked the private room we had later too. The après ski beverages are BYOB and that's great too. If everyone is checked-in, they turn off the lights on the sign. The Lodge is a little hard to see at night when the sign is off. Coming from Killington Rd it's on the right, second house after Hemingway's, just about across from the Pasta Pot.…
The lodge is right on the main road so it's easy to find. It's in a pretty scenic spot. We were a party of 8 so we booked a room with 7 bunkbeds and on extra bed in another male-dorm. The lodge is quaint and clean, and the continental breakfast is quite satisfactory. They even had almond milk for vegans. :) The staff was very friendly and it was nice to socialize with other guests at the lodge by the fire on the first floor. Plenty of parking space too. The only thing to keep in mind is the rooms are very narrow/small with just walking space between the beds. It's alright if you're sharing with your friends but I wouldn't recommend to share it with strangers especially since it's only 1 private bath. If you don't care about a hotel experience like I do, and your main goal is to ride the slopes, I recommend the lodge.…
