Everything You Need to Have a Great Time
Our Labor Day vacation rentals have your ultimate comfort in mind. Tastefully furnished to optimize your experience, you’ll love the well-appointed living spaces, luxurious bedrooms, and fully equipped kitchens. Take advantage of our basic rentals or treat yourself to a vacation getaway with some more extravagant features. Check out our rentals with outdoor hot tubs so you can enjoy the crisp mountain air from the calming hot waters in the comfort of your own yard, all while gazing at the bright summer stars. If hot tubs aren’t your thing, find a rental with an outdoor gathering space for cooking on the grill or even better, a bonfire for hot dogs on a stick followed up with an encore of smores – an American summer tradition not to be overlooked no matter the current state of our world.
An Exceptional Holiday Weekend to Soak Up the Sun
While we’ll keep our fingers crossed that Labor Day weekend brings us some of the seasonal events we’ve always enjoyed, such as the KMBC Bike Bum Race Series and the Cooler in the Mountains Summer Concert Series, rest assured there’s still plenty to do to soak in the last days of summer. Choosing a rental with GetAway Vacations puts you in a prime location to relax, adventure, and explore while still keeping you and your family safe and isolated. Killington, Vermont is the East Coast’s largest outdoor playground, so it’s easy to get out and enjoy new scenery as often as you want.
Some of our favorite local activities include a hike to Thundering Falls, an ADA accessible trail for patrons that explores the beautiful woods and ends at Vermont’s 6th largest waterfall. No doubt that reaching the end of this trail and soaking in the truly magnificent sight of the roaring water spilling over the rocks will leave you feeling energized and fulfilled. Looking for a bigger challenge but don’t want to wander too far from town? Don’t underestimate the long-distance Appalachian and Long Trails that both cut through the Killington, so you can easily tackle a section of the trail to suit your fancy. Another favorite spot to visit before the weather turns cold is Twenty Foot Hole, a swimming hole that’s sure to delight.
With a vast trail system, it’s easy to rent mountain bikes from a local outfitter and hit the trails for some breathtaking views of mountains and forests alike. For a day on the water, rent some kayaks and enjoying slicing through the sparkling waters of Snowshed Pond while marveling at the view of Killington Peak. Another local favorite is Chittenden Reservoir, a paradise for paddle boarding and fishing that requires a scenic drive through the mountains to get there. Pack a lunch and make a day of it!
Self-guided adventures are always exciting, but sometimes it’s nice to have someone else guide your adventure too. If you’re looking for something that requires minimal exertion but maximum heart rate, purchase tickets to the summer gondola ride to the top of Killington Peak to revel in unobstructed views of the mountains while breathing in that fresh mountain air. Another option is to soak up the summer sun (while you’ve still got it) on the golf course. Whether you’re looking to play 9 holes or 18, you’ll love the fresh green grass and early autumn breeze found at Killington Golf Course and Green Mountain National Golf Course.
While this Labor Day may find us all looking for thrills in a solitary manner, there are still plenty of options for places to visit. As the calendar turns into September, this is a great time of year to stock up on the bounty of summer produce, so be sure to visit Green Mountain Sugar House to stock up on local treats to bring home. Maple inspired-anything will be a big hit this fall, not to mention some delicious Vermont cheese to go with a bottle of wine when the weather turns cold and you’re looking for a relaxing evening by the fire this autumn. Speaking of fall, be sure to check out Billing Farm & Museum while the weather is optimal, and the maple trees still provide shade for a day of fun, animals, and Vermont treats.
Wherever your adventures take you, rest assured there are still a plethora of delicious restaurants ready to cater to your whims – whether it’s a bountiful breakfast to fuel your day or a dinner-to-go as the patio of your welcoming vacation home calls your name.
This Labor Day may stray from your traditional plans, but it will not disappoint!
