I am giving this place 1 Star because of the proximity to Stowe Mountain, its only about 3 miles down the road and the shuttle to the mtn picks you up right out front. Everything else about this Inn is awful. I knew this was a basic Inn, nothing fancy, so I had low expectations, but it was worse. From...

So a room was available here and it sounded good. The cost was very reasonable. After we checked in we realized why. Internet throughout the property was a lie at best. The innkeeper suggested it mght work for us if we sat in the library. The room was tiny, even by New York city standards. Our closet at home was...

Mountaineer is the best of what you dream of in a Vermont ski lodge.... comfortable and modern common areas where guests gather to share the events of the day, snacks and beverages, excellent meals....always a big hot breakfast that is tailored to your personal preferences. Ned and Royal make folks feel like guests have come home for the holidays. Close...

The location is good and the inn keeper is friendly. However the room are musty- small- and the sheets were so scratchy that it was like a body loofa every time I moved. Not too comfortable. The communal space is great and the innkeeper cooks a great breakfast. The huge hot tub is a plus.

We stayed here as a group of 6 (in 3 rooms) for the Green Mountain Adventure Challenge. It was a perfect location for our group. The common areas are large and comfortable with big screen TV's and a common fridge to store beverages. The inn does not have a liquor license, but they allow you to bring your own beer...

This Inn is owned by an older couple that take much pride in their business. The building and grounds are well kept. They have a large pool, patio area and deck. The included breakfast was a nice treat. The only downside is that they do not have air conditioning in the rooms.

We had the opportunity to ski Mt. Snow for two days in March. The Mountaineer Inn was recommended by friends and we were very pleased we stayed there. It has the atmosphere of an old fashioned ski lodge where you can mix and mingle with the other skiers.The owners go out of their way to make sure all guests feel...

If you are planning a ski trip to Mount Snow you cannot choose better location, at the very base of the slopes. However, do not expect 5 star hotel. Our room was very small and with outdated furniture. But it was clean and the bed was comfortable. The price of the room included breakfast, which was really good. The Inn...

I've been coming here for over 25 years, it's like going home. The food is great Ned and Royal are great, we come with the Delaware ski club. When we are there were treated just like family, I recommend all big or small groups to go. If you're expecting a five star hotel this is not the place for you....

Front desk staff was friendly and helpful and made great recommendations for food and area hangouts. We checked in very late and the staff made it convenient for us .

“Rooms do not have AC but you won't miss it - VT nights are breezy and cool.”

“Ask for an upper level room at the end of the hall. The walls are thin and if people don't take a second to hold their door or if they are heavy steppers they will definitely wake you up.”

“Rooms on the south end are closer to the hottub area. Rooms on the north are closer to breakfast, but also closer to the stairs — as in all VT construction, you'll hear folks walking up and down. Though it's very quiet at a reasonable hour.”
