The Trailside Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls
Killington, Crossroads of Vermont, Vermont

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Clean, updated rooms with hardwood floors, comfortable beds, and lots of natural light
  • Very clean, spacious bathrooms with updated fixtures and large showers
  • Cozy common area with a flat-screen TV, fireplace, and board games
  • Beautiful, tranquil surroundings
  • Adjacent to Green Mountain National Golf Course; close to Killington Ski Resort

Cons

  • No TVs in rooms (a pro for some)
  • No restaurants, and closest dining options are a 15-minute drive away
  • Hidden fees (e.g. for clean linens and towels daily)

Bottom Line

The Trailside Inn is a bit of a contradiction, in a good way. It looks (and smells) brand spanking new, with gorgeous pine wood floors throughout and new furniture. Yet there's still a rustic, lodge-like vibe here -- there are no TVs in the rooms, and the surroundings are, in a word, tranquil. It lacks the quirkiness of a B&B (which some will appreciate), and instead favors a cleaner, less cluttered look. It's a good choice for couples looking for some alone time in a secluded setting.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In a quiet corner of Killington, a drive away from anything

The Trailside Inn is just off a main road, adjacent to the Green Mountain National Golf Course. The surroundings are typical of this area -- serene, peaceful, and at most times sleepy. It's about a 10- to 15-minute drive downtown to Killington's restaurants.

  • 1-hour-40-minute drive to Burlington International Airport
  • Adjacent to Green Mountain National Golf Course
  • 10-minute drive to downtown Killington's shops and restaurants
  • 10-minute drive to Killington Mountain Resort
  • 17-minute drive to Killington Golf Course
  • 45-minute drive to Quechee Gorge, with nearby shops, antiquing and restaurants
  • 1-hour-5-minute drive to outlet shopping in Barre
  • 1-hour-7-minute drive to cheese tasting at Cabot Creamery
  • 1-hour-45-minute drive to Shelburne Museum

 Bottom Line
