Nestled in the woods and accessible only by sleigh, the Ledgewood Yurt provides a one-of-a-kind dining experience in Killington, Vermont. It’s located just off the Northbrook Trail on Killington Mountain and resembles a structure used by nomadic Mongolian tribes over 2,000 years ago. Slightly sunk into the snow and sparkling with tiny white lights, the yurt’s impeccable service and cuisine will exceed your expectations. Here’s why a trip to the Ledgewood Yurt should be on your bucket list.
Enjoy a Meal at the Ledgewood Yurt
With its warm wood-burning stove and relaxing atmosphere, lunch at the Ledgewood Yurt is perfect for guests who need a break from skiing. The farm-to-table menu features everything from hearty soups and salads to signature sandwiches and entrees. Not sure what to order? We like the Vermont cheddar mac and cheese with crispy leeks and crushed salted pretzels. Or try the Ledgewood Reuben made with VT pastrami, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Thousand Island dressing. Wash it all down with a Vermont brew and you’ll be ready to get back on the trails!
Family Night at the Ledgewood Yurt is a culinary adventure for diners of all ages. Start the evening with a 20-minute sleigh ride to the yurt, then cozy up at a dining table made for groups of 6 or 8 people. You’ll indulge in a gourmet three-course meal that’s suitable for younger palettes. A fine list of wine, beer, and liquor is also available upon request. Family Night is $65 per person and space is limited. Be sure to book early!
Are you planning a special date night? Take advantage of the yurt’s incredible Dinner Excursions. Similar to Family Night, this event includes a sleigh ride under the stars and five delicious dinner courses. Signature dishes include bone-in Monkfish, cavendish quail, venison shank and wagyu beef medallions, and a maple bourbon chocolate bombe for dessert. The meal is $129 per person and is served on Saturdays from December to March.
How to Get There
Dinner guests should arrive at the Vermont Fresh Cafe located at the Snowshed Base Lodge at 6 p.m. The sleigh leaves promptly at 6:30 p.m. The yurt is not accessible by car, so if you miss the sleigh, you miss the entire evening! Be sure to dress in winter casual attire with appropriate footwear and outerwear for snow.
