The price for a room at the Upper Pass Lodge cannot be beat! The people who work there are very wonderful and so helpful - Vince (the manager) and Carol (who works in the restaurant) are great! We stayed there one night. We had an economy room on the 2nd floor - small, but clean. There was a space heater,...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 June 2016

We have now stayed at Upper Pass a number of times, both in and out of ski season. We love the proximity to not only Magic Mountain (a few steps away) but to all the areas we like to visit while in Vermont. Its staff, especially Manager Vince, are consistently warm & welcoming. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Back...

Spent two nights here in mid-November with surprisingly mild weather. The lodge is in a convenient location, especially in the winter if you want to ski. For us at that time it was easy to get to Lowell Lake and the town of Weston. The manager was very helpful and personable and our stay was very low-key with interactions in...

I've never written a TripAdvisor review before, but my wife and I had such a great time at the Upper Pass Lodge I had to get on here and share our experience. Vince and everyone on staff were super friendly and chill. The rooms were simple, clean and comfortable - an awesome value for the price. The restaurant is great...

This was my second time at the Upper Pass. Loved it again! Vince was a great host, again! I took my parents with me this time. We all had a great and relaxing time. This time the bar and restaurant were open. The food was delicious and the staff was friendly. I'm going back as soon as I can.

We had a wonderful one night, last minute stay. Wish we could have stayed longer. Would love to return during the ski season! The location is really great, set back near the base of Magic Mountain. Very close to Chester, Ludlow, etc, if you want to go out for dinner. There also is a nice restaurant and bar on the...

We had a great stay! The service was outstanding! It's been a very long time since I've stayed anywhere and had this level of service. The food was great and, again, the service was the best! The staff was so friendly. The lounge, where we spent our evenings, was very comfortable and felt like I was at home.

Coffee made daily along with freshly baked muffins, pets allowed, immaculately kept bathrooms, comfortable pillows and staff that makes one feel right at home. The leather couches in the great room are cozy. It's centrally located between Weston and Chester and close drive/bike ride to Lowel lake. A real gem in the Green Mtn state.

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback and for the kind words. My apologies for the soiled bedspreads. No excuse, we must have missed them.
