Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Historic country inn halfway between Killington Ski Resort and Rutland
  • Individually decorated, clean rooms; some with fireplaces and poster beds
  • Solid breakfast included in nightly rate
  • Seasonal outdoor pool, plus a tennis court and a playground
  • Discounted day passes to a nearby fitness center complete with a lap pool and Jacuzzis
  • Free Wi-Fi and parking

Cons

  • Restaurant only open for breakfast
  • Common spaces could use some updates
  • Small in-room flat-screen TVs

Bottom Line

The Vermont Inn is a historic, family-run property in tiny Mendon, located halfway between Killington Ski Resort and Rutland. It has classic New England decor throughout and an overall cozy feel, but common spaces could use refreshing. Rooms are homey if not luxurious, and vary in size and configuration. They all have small flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and clean bathrooms, and some have features such as four-poster beds, fireplaces, and jetted tubs. The pub offers a wonderful breakfast that is included in the nightly rate; for lunch and dinner, guests must go elsewhere. The property was featured on the Travel Channel show Hotel Impossible, during which it received an upgraded, shabby-chic look in the Bridal Suite and improved landscaping on the grounds.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Near two wonderful ski resorts, as well as Rutland, the second largest city in Vermont

The Vermont Inn is in Mendon, a tiny rural village halfway between Killington/Pico ski resort and Rutland, the second largest city in Vermont. It's not exactly the area to come to for excitement, but that's usually the point. There are a few golf courses and hiking trails, but most excursions require driving to Rutland. It's not the type of place for someone who needs constant excitement, but it's perfect for anyone (especially couples) who want to hole up for a weekend. Okemo ski resort is just over a 40-minute drive from the hotel.

  • 1-hour-55-minute drive to Burlington International Airport
  • 5-minute drive to downtown Rutland's shops and restaurants
  • 9-minute drive to Killington Mountain Resort
  • 16-minute drive to Green Mountain National Golf Course
  • 22-minute drive to Killington Golf Course
  • 43-minute drive to Okemo ski resort
  • 50-minute drive to Quechee Gorge, with nearby shops, antique stores, and restaurants
  • 1-hour-38-minute drive to Shelburne Museum
  • 1-hour-19-minute drive to outlet shopping in Barre
  • 1-hour-48-minute drive to cheese tasting at Cabot Creamery
