Celebrate in Style
GetAway Vacations has an abundance of vacation rentals throughout the Killington, VT area, so the only question is what experience are you looking for? In the early days of spring, you can likely count on some snowy slopes at the ski resorts (though naturally we can’t guarantee the weather). If this is your jam, you might be interested in booking one of our ski-in ski-out condos. With a prime location that can’t be beat, guests also love having access to resort amenities such as a workout center, pool, and hot tub. On the other hand, some of our guests would rather find a little slice of heaven similar to a remote cabin in the woods. From a tiny mountain bungalow to an extravagant mountain retreat, we’re sure we can help you find the perfect spot for you and your guests to find some solitude and adventures on your own terms. Another great option is renting a Cinco de Mayo vacation rental within city limits. Enjoy the small-town charm of Killington, with only 800 permanent residents, and find a Cinco de Mayo celebration to join.
No matter what type of rental you choose, rest assured that all of our vacation homes come standard with all the amenities you require. To start, a fully equipped kitchen with full-size appliances is included. Stock the fridge with your favorite foods and beverages and know that you’ll have all the gadgets to cook your favorite meals. In other words, the salsa, guacamole, and Coronas will stay cold in the fridge and you can easily whip up some delicious tacos on the stove. Stream movies or play games with your guests in the fully operational dining and living areas. And finally, at the end of the day, retire to a private bedroom furnished with quality mattresses and luxury linens to ensure a good night’s rest.
Cinco de Mayo Activities in Killington, VT
Killington is a small town, so you probably shouldn’t count on a parade or festival to commemorate this exciting holiday. Instead, this area of the green mountains is the perfect location for celebrating on your own terms with the people you choose to travel with.
To start, Killington is home to two downhill ski resorts: Pico and Killington. If it’s been a good season, you can take advantage of the final days of snow and spend some quality time on your skis or snowboard. There aren’t many places in the world where you can ski one day and spend the next sunbathing on the shoreline of a nearby lake, but that’s exactly the case here in Killington. With rental companies willing to deliver all of your needed gear to the water, you’ll be ready to soak up the rays of spring sunshine on the clear water of Kent Pond. If it’s too early in the season rent water gear, you can still take advantage of the spring weather and pack a picnic to enjoy by the water. However the weather falls (or shines), you can almost certainly count on the snowy mountains offering a perfect backdrop to your Vermont retreat.
Other activities that guests love to partake in this time of year are hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and renting ATVs. The hundreds of acres of mountain terrain offer a unique outdoor playground that never gets old. However if you prefer to keep your adventures close to town, a favorite spot to explore is the Thundering Brook Falls. This easy, handicap-accessible trail leads you to the sixth largest waterfall in Vermont. This is a great time of year to visit because the water levels are at an all-time high with the snow runoff, creating a truly magnificent sight.
It’s not Cinco de Mayo without tacos! Luckily Killington has you covered with a few delicious hot spots. Baja Burrito, located at 2685 Killington Rd, is a great spot to grab some food and a beer. Taco X, located at 2841 Killington Rd, gets rave reviews for their laidback vibes and amazing food.
Make this Cinco de Mayo truly a special one with good friends, good fun, and good food. Book your vacation rental and enjoy Cinco de Mayo in Killington, Vermont!
