Vermont Business Magazine There’s snow place like Killington Mountain Lodge! MCR — the country’s fourth-largest hotel owner-operator — has acquired the 102-room winter wonderland located next to the largest skiing and snowboarding area in the eastern United States.
MCR is operating the Killington Mountain Lodge as a Hilton Tapestry affiliate. The hotel will have a grand re-opening as a Tapestry in November 2021. (Fair warning to The Pickle Barrel and Wobbly Barn: A sizzling new nightlife destination cometh to the 802.)
In the meantime, book your room and grab your poles because Killington Mountain Lodge is open and ski season is in full swish. Nestled in the Green Mountains of the Appalachian Trail, the property is a mere mile from the Killington Ski Resort and minutes from Pico Mountain. Enjoy a free continental breakfast (top it with the house condiment: maple syrup) before heading for the hills. Spend the day speeding down nearly 150 open trails. They don’t call it the Beast of the East for nothing!
After a bluebird day on the slopes, treat your aching muscles to a dip in the hotel’s hot tub — the biggest in Vermont. The water is heated to 96 degrees or higher daily and there’s plenty of room: The hotspot fits 20 people comfortably.
Not into skiing or soaking? Relax near a roaring fire and read poems by onetime Green Mountain State laureate Robert Frost while sipping a strong cocktail. Or just chug maple syrup from the bottle — it makes everything better!
The Killington Mountain Lodge sits on the sixth hole of the par 72 championship Killington Mountain Golf Course (otherwise known as 2617 Killington Road) and features:
- 102 pet-friendly rooms and suites, all with mini-fridges and many with private balconies
- A free daily continental breakfast
- Expansive common areas with two stone fireplaces and a pool table

- Free fast Wi-Fi
