Not for the fine dinning crew! Clean, comfortable, hot shower, tv, phone. Cell phones have NO reception!! Land lines in the rooms. But there is wifi. Bar open only on weeekends. Dogs allowed w.stipulations. No food is offered here, coffee in am if you want to make it but no milk! Inn is great building built in 1700's updated but original wood planking. Quite rooms, comfortable beds, check in is a bit different, keys sometimes are left on front desk. Gentlemen isn't chatty at ALL! Some rooms sleep a lot others smaller.
Found this location via expedia when looking for last minute properties to stay in this general vicinity. It's off on its own but I love non traditional hotels so this fit the bill. You go into the restaurant to check in. The person that helped me was very personable and friendly. My room ended up being in the carriage house. When i opened the room door was pleasantly surprised to see the size of it and decent size bathroom as well. All very spacious, especially for one person. Only thing I would note is that the room was very cold when I got there, eventually heated up to a comfortable temperature. Had a good meal at the restaurant as well, very convenient that way. Also close to Killington and just a generally beautiful area. Glad to have come across it.
Where to begin...let's start with the Inn itself. It's freezing, there's a nice woodburning stove in the lobby, but no fire in it. There's no one to check us in, the bartender has to call the owner and ask how to do it. The room is...well, pretty bad. Bathroom is straight from a trailer with the tiniest shower imaginable. It was at least quasi clean. Maid service was off and on and getting fresh (thin & rough) towels wasn't easy. For the location and the potential this place has to be great, I was sadly disappointed. I promise I won't be back! :-(
Check out our review on Expedia with pictures. snow not removed and no onsite innkeeper. Stayed in loft over bar, 3 beds. 51 degrees at check in. Gross stains on bed and furniture, we slept on top of our sheets in clothes. bathroom drain backed up. toilet brown. we left after one night but non-refundable policy mean we forfeited other nights. We are ski family perfectly fine with 2 or 3 star accomodations as long as it is clean. Avoid.
Walked in to an empty cold building that looked like a bar/restaurant with CLOSED written on the chalk board above the bar. We walked around looking for someone and could not find the innkeeper. I noticed a key and a sheet of paper on a table. It was a note welcoming us and the key to our room. Upstairs we found the room, again cold. I found a thermostat, and got the heat going, however it was limited to 68 degrees. Great for sleeping, but not for a shower. The room and bath were ok and the bed comfortable. Next morning again no one around so I made some coffee per instructions on the wall. It maybe a good place to stay during the summer or perhaps for winter sports, however I did not feel we were treated correctly, not for the price charged. Book through Expedia. The reviews are not true.
My wife and I ski race in New England, mostly Vermont, all winter long and always travel with our 100lb dog. We arrived at 9:30 pm and found that the access to our 2nd fl room was a icy steep open back tread exterior stairway. Every dogs nightmare. I had to leave early in the morning to register for our races and left my wife to walk the dog. I returned to find that our dog "froze" on second step and would not go up or down the stairs. My wife pleaded on the phone with the innkeeper to unlock the door to the interior so the dog could go down the inside stairs. The alleged innkeeper, Alan, refused and offerred her no help at all. He would not even leave his room! Other guests tried to help her but the dog wanted no part of the stairs. I had to carry him down and back. We had no time to waste so we left for our races. During the day we found another place to stay. We returned at 4:00pm. I now met Alan for the first time. I told him that we were checking out and he raised his voice to me, blamed our dog, my wife and myself. Then, in his own defense, he said " when your wife called me this morning I was passed out". This happened at 7:30am at a B&B! When we returned home after the weekend, we found that he charged us for the three days that we had planned to stay!! I am 64yrs old and have never experienced treatment like this anywhere. There are many fine warm and welcoming places to stay in the area. This is not one of them!
We stayed here for one night after skiing at Okemo. We checked in after a day of skiing and the person at the front desk was really friendly. He brought us outside and down some steps that were covered in ice to another building where our room was. The heat hadn't been turned on so the room was absolutely freezing, and we couldn't turn it up past 68. 68 is NOT warm! If you have guests coming and you know which room they'll be in, I would think you could at least turn the heat on. We slept with hats on it was so cold. And being a "b&b" when you serve cold cereal in the morning is a joke.
This review is a little late- my group including my boyfriend, his sister and another 4 friends was over this past New Years. Most of us had never been to the area and did not realize that we needed to book a rental home many months in advance. We started looking in November and were discouraged when we could not find any homes. Then I found the add for Salt Ash and we were relieved. We rented 3 rooms and had the best time. The location is actually great- it is located between both Okemo and Killington/ Pico so were were able to check out all three. The owner Al is awesome, you kind of feel like you are staying at his house as your see him around the property and in the restaurant for dinner. Some previous reviewers complained about the noise, but we didn't have any problems. It's true, the free breakfast is lacking a little (Eggo waffles, cold cereal, coffee, juice), but it's free and you can't beat the price of the Inn overall. Also, Kelly's restaurant was awesome- great food and employees. We ended up eating there most nights because then we didn't have to worry about driving after having drinks. They did run out of a few menu items, but always improvised and more than made up for it. Overall we had a great time!
We stayed at the Salt Ash Inn for a spontaneous weekend trip to ski Killington. Our room was small but nice and cozy. We read reviews about it being cold so we packed an electric blanket and we were fine. The room was actually not very cold, but you do want extra warmth after a day of skiing. If you go into your stay with realistic expectations, you won't be disappointed. The breakfast is very basic - just coffee, juice, toast, cereal, and instant oatmeal. If you're looking for a BnB with the emphasis on the second B, then look elsewhere and on a different (higher) price range. The restaurant (Kelly's) is excellent. Good service and the food is great. Adult drink selection is limited to beer, wine, and hard cider, but the atmosphere is very Vermont. The location is great -- 10 minutes from Killington's Skyeship gondola and 20 minutes from the main K1 Lodge. We really enjoyed our stay and we would stay again. It's a great bargain and you get exactly what you pay for.
I stayed here with a group of friends over New Years on our ski trip. It is the perfect place for anyone who wants an experience worth remembering. If you want bland and predictable you should stick to Holiday Inn Express. Al and his staff provide a friendly, laid back atmosphere that really allows you to forget the outside world and enjoy the present. Kelly's, the attached restaurant and bar, is run by a former pro-snowboarder, who's passion for good food matches his abilities on the slopes. The food was so good we ate there 3/4 nights. Okemo, Killington and several other resorts are all within a 20 minute drive. Salt Ash Inn is one of a kind, and if you don't have a great time it's your own fault.
