Bottom Line

The 96 rooms in the Pointe at Castle Hill offer a picturesque home base for enjoying outdoor activities in southern Vermont. Decor here fluctuates drastically: Some rooms are charming and filled with antiques, while others are more generic. Suites are bright and offer full kitchens along with modern bathrooms, while all rooms have flat-screen TVs and tea and coffee-making facilities. Families might appreciate the on-site game room, indoor pool, and pet-friendly attitude of this hotel. Free shuttle service to Okemo Mountain is convenient during the winter ski season, but some guests complain about dated furniture and far distance from airports.
