Stunning Killington Family Rentals in Vermont
Maybe you’re planning a big ski-trip with all your extended family, or perhaps you’re just looking for an intimate weekend vacation with your partner and children—either way, we have something for you in our portfolio of family rentals! Our vast array of Killington vacation rentals includes options from 1-bedroom condos in the heart of town, 3-bedroom rentals, to exclusive and secluded 8-bedroom ski chalets, and everything in-between! Many of our properties have a convenient “Ski-On, Ski-Off” feature, where you can zip to the trails right from the front steps of your vacation home! And good news, you don’t have to rent a vast mountainside home to take advantage of this highlight—quite a few of our Ski-On, Ski Off family rentals in Vermont have just one or two bedrooms.
Whichever Killington family lodging you choose to stay, you’ll find fully-equipped kitchens for having family meals in the comfort of your rental, or maybe outside under the Vermont summer sky. Amenities differ from home to home but can include perks such as private hot tubs for taking a soak after a vigorous day of hitting the slopes, fireplaces for snuggling around in the evenings, and stunning mountain views. You’ll always find towels and fresh linens, and other amenities can include firewood, paper towels, toilet paper, and other extras.
When it comes to family activities, there’s no shortage of fun to be had in our family rentals in Vermont! Other than zipping down the mountainside, there’s an array of seasonal recreation to participate in. When it’s winter, celebrate the season by going on a real horse-drawn sleigh ride at Kedron Valley Stables, or take one of Killington Ski Resorts “Snowcat sleigh” rides, where the sleigh is pulled by giant Snowcat machines. In the fall you can enjoy hiking trails in beautiful temperatures and bring a picnic to watch the leaves change—they also make a vibrant backdrop for family photos! It’s also a terrific season to go apple picking at nearby orchards such as Mendon Mountain Orchards. When it’s summertime, go for a horseback trail ride, or a mountain bike adventure.
For dining out in Killington you’ll find numerous family-friendly restaurants offering children’s menus, among them Casey’s Caboose, Domenic’s Pizzeria, and the Back Country Buffet. At Casey’s Caboose you can even sit inside the namesake caboose located in the restaurant. Domenic’s Pizzeria has all of your favorite pizzas to choose from; the adults will enjoy the good selection of local craft beer from around Vermont too.
Exciting Family-Friendly Activities in Killington
There is something for everyone to enjoy when traveling as a family to Killington. Since a majority of our Killington vacation homes feature ski-in/ski-out access, you will want to take advantage of the incredible skiing conditions during the winter. Killington Mountain is popular for locals and visitors alike due to its incredible trails. Introductory lessons are available for children and adults alike to ensure they are ready to take on the mountain. Once everyone has a bit of practice under their belt, you will be ready to hit the slopes together. Don’t pass up on this exciting family-friendly activity!
Additional ways to have fun with the whole family include a trip to Pico Adventure Park. This local attraction allows kids of all ages to enjoy a variety of activities including a rope course, zip line, bouncy trampolines, and more. The weather is clear during the spring, summer, and fall seasons, allowing your family to get the most from being outdoors. You can also take a beautiful hike around Killington. Thundering Falls Trail is a simple yet gorgeous hike to the infamous waterfalls in the area. Expect a light walk that is less than a mile to the picture-perfect destination. More rigorous hikes can also be found in the area for older children and adults to enjoy. Deer Leap Trail is a moderate-level hike with plenty of elevation. When you reach the end of this 1.9-mile hike, you will find incredible views of the surrounding area. Make sure you do not forget your camera!
Last but certainly not least is a visit to Gifford Woods State Park. This local state park includes more hikes like those mentioned above and more. Your family can relax by Kent Pond and set up a picnic. Gifford Woods State Park actually features part of the infamous Appalachian Trail that your kids may have learned about in school. We recommend visiting this park during the fall season when all of the leaves are turning to beautiful shades of red and orange.
