Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keyj Easier then renting a vacation home
You have all the amenities of home, can cook your own meals, go out to eat at numerous restaurants in the area and keep yourself (and your kids) busy without leaving the property. Or, you can go do just about anything you can think of in this area such as boating, swimming, biking, hiking, fishing or visit the numerous sites in the area. If you come for a weekend, you will not have time to do it all, but you will want to come back and fill in a couple more bucket list items you were not able to do last time you were there.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GAVisitor27 Beautiful, condo-like property in the mountains
Mt. Ascutney used to be a ski destination, but the ski lodge and lift had financial difficulties and had to close down (later to be consumed by fire). Holiday Inn Vacations has taken over this property and is in the process of giving it a major face-lift and renovation. We stayed in one of the newly-updated buildings, which was very tastefully decorated, very comfortable and quiet. Now the mountain is covered in hiking and mountain biking trails, which are fun for the outdoor enthusiast. Unfortunately, the hotel does not provide a map for these trails -- they are available for purchase, however. I used this hotel as the base for several day-hikes in southern VT and NH, and it was fantastic. Beautiful, large pools were refreshing after a day of hiking. The only thing missing: hot tubs. What kind of mountain resort (former ski lodge) has no hot tubs? A nice soak would have been the perfect way to relax after a few long days of hiking the Green and White mountains!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ADK-Matt Very Friendly staff and spacious villa's
Recently stayed at MT Ascutney Resort well traveling to Maine, it was a good half way point from our home. The 3 bedroom villa was very nice and clean and accommodated my family of 6 with no problem. My children enjoyed the pool after check in. We opted to eat at the restaurant on site. The food was decent, and it was convenient not having to drive anywhere to eat. The resort is about 15 minutes away from the nearest town. The staff was pleasant and helpful with any questions we had. I hope to make it back, maybe during peak leaf time to enjoy a long weekend of peace and relaxation.

Stayed here with my fiancée for a week and loved the one bedroom villa we stayed at. The room was very spacious, quiet, and clean with the bathroom and bedroom on the second floor, a deck, and a full kitchen. There is no Verizon service here so keep that in mind, but the wifi was mostly good and there are TV's and DVD players with movies to rent at the front desk. We used the swimming facilities as well as the fitness center, which was up to par. We even attended a spinning class that was tiring but fun! Finally, the Maple Kitchen restaurant is an excellent option for dinner.

Excellent experience at the resort which I found to be very clean and comfortable. We stayed for the STAB mountain trail system which was also top notch

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 11aside Lost Potential
I can see how this "resort" can have the potential to be a destination for many, but unfortunately our stay fell very short of a resort experience. Property layout and what they have to offer is more than most hotels. Hiking and fishing on property is a welcome change. Walking distance to Brownsville General Store is great too!
2 bedroom villa set-up is great. Full kitchen and dining area provided alot of room. Fold out couch was also a plus for the kids. Very spacious layout. and for the most part it was clean.
Unfortunately the following negatives are going to taint the experience:
-blood stained comforter that we asked to have removed. they brought a new one and didn't take the stained one so we stuffed it in a closet
-no maid service for the term of our stay
-had to remove our own trash from the room each day
-had to request new/clean towels and remind them that we still hadn't received maid service - brought towels, no maids
-pool isn't clean which is disgusting. you can feel the algae slime on the walls of the pool.
