Trail Creek Condominiums
Reviewed 11 March 2013

We stayed from March 3 up to March 7 and stayed in unit 42 (3 bedrooms). Decently furnished but a bit outdated. We were there with another couple and their kid, total of six. The unit came fully equipped with plenty of space. No need to bring anything from home. When needing something, we would call and get it quickly (soap, dishwashing liquid, towels, etc). Service was great and friendly. The unit came with a wood-burning fireplace. Lots of wood in the shed nearby.

The Trail Creek trail brings you right in the middle of the units so you do not have to walk or take the shuttle when coming back to your unit (ski in but not ski out). You may walk to the slopes. It is a 10 minutes walk going uphill but with your boots and your ski it looks much farther and too much of a work out for us! You may also take the shuttle it passes by every 10-15 minutes and it brings you to the bottom of the mountain close to the lift.

We would go back to the unit for lunch every day as it is quite expensive to eat at the various places on the mountain. There is an activity center in the middle of the Trail Creek units with a pool, spa and sauna and some games.

The mountain, the beast as it is called. Ski conditions were exceptional and we would barely wait at any of the lifts of gondolas. Lots of trails, half of them groomed. Lots of maps and directions and helpers (employees well identified with an i in the back of their coat) helping us find our way when we would get l

As a large family with grown up children we had two units ( 67 & 68) . Both were two bed units, 67 was on the ground floor and 68 on the first floor. 68 was nicer because it had a large loft/sitting room in addition to the main sitting room. There were 8 adults in all and with four bathrooms between the units there was plenty of space.
I understand that the units are each privately owned so they do vary.
The large log fire with free supply of logs in each unit was lovely, all siting around each evening discussing the days skiiing.
Compared to similar we have stayed in in Norway - these we're better.
Staff, without exception, were friendly and helpful.
Directions to the reception on arrival were poor but we worked it out in the end.
You can walk to the ski lifts but not easily, there are regular free buses you can get a couple of minutes walk from our units. You can bus back or. Ski back. There are two routes back, wiffletree trail took us almost right to our units.
The skiing was terrific with all ages being accommodated. Many ski lifts etc. note that the weekends were very busy for skiing but once you were up the mountains it was easy to find lots of peace.
There are snowmobiles near by and tubing a short walk away - we did not do these as we were too exhausted after a full days skiiing.
Restaurants nearby ok, quite expensive.
We hired two large 4x4 s
Highly recommended

Room Tip: As each room varies try to get a recommendation on individual condos. First floor better than groun...

Ok, so I have learned that the info on the individual units and what to ask for is the most important thing here. We were originally in unit #30... ugh. Decor and bed/bedding was stuck in the 1980's... large walk in closet and slightly bigger than normal bath were nice but the formica in the bath and kitchen were kind of worn, as were the glasses and pots and pans and silverware. This was annoying as I was sure to ask the raiting in advance and was told it was and A rated unit. Now I found out that the OWNERS (!!) rate their unit not a 3rd party so this is what happens. The breaking point was the owner of unit 31 next door bringing her 'puppy' with her and leaving it locked up in her unit while she went out and we listened to it whine and bark for 2 hours before she got home. When we called to complain after the first hour we were offerered another unit. Angie at Lodging was quick to get us set up in our new unit, #64, the next morning and we couldnt have been happier. It has a loft with a bed along with the one bed room, and updated kitchen and bath with granite. Look at other reviewer's pics to check it out. Its the one with the stuffed moose head (stuffed animal toy that is!) on the wall :) The unit was quiet and off the parking lot which we liked. Good glasses and pots and pans. Comfy bed in the main bedroom. So the net net is find a *specific* unit number to ask for and make sure to tell them you dont want to be moved so you know that unit will be yours when you get there. Then be sure to post a review here to help the next user find a specific unit that works for them!

Family went upto Killington for a long ski weekend in January. Condo was great - one bedroom with a loft and queen bed for the kids - practically a two bedroom. Nice galley kitchen with all of the basics, washer-dryer and a great wood burning fire-place. As a nice touch the place came with little for starters which really do the trick for starting a fire w out messing with kindling etc. Condo was nice - decently furnished, modern enough, good wifi. The slopes were about a 5 min drive up the road - regular shuttle service to the condos as well. You could walk it if you wanted but it would be a stretch to call it ski-in/out or an easy walk. Really a perfect ski condo. Skiing was solid. Ski school was really well organized and well run- we have a new skiier (age 8) and new snow boarder ( age 11). Instructors were super. Killington is geared more towards the younger set - restaurant options a bit limited - but plenty of jumping bars - just pick restaurants without a live band - but we did fine and will certainly come back.

Our condo (#35) was beautiful, cozy and easy to ride into from the slopes. It had a gorgeous kitchen and could sleep a lot more than 6 people if someone didn't mind an air mattress. The only 2 complaints I have: 1) The dryer took forever to dry clothes and 2) The comforter on the master bedroom mattress was obnoxiously heavy and hot. But without it, it was cold. I also noticed an employee coming out of our condo, but he did not take our trash, or drop off towels or anything. I felt like that was suspicious, but we noticed nothing missing. Overall it was a great place. Gorgeous views too.

we just returned from a 5 days stay at the trail creek condo. Check in was so esay, I booked everything online (lift tickets,lessons for my 11 years old , rental for everyone) and I had everything at my arrival.
the apt (#80) was great: we had a 1 bedroom (2 adults, 11 and 3 years old), the place was spacious almost a 2 bedroom. there was a mezzanine in the living room with a queen size sofa bed. It was very nice to have a fire place and plenty of wood (especially with the very cold weather we had). the shuttle is so convenient to go to the snowshed and coming back with the special trail was fun and apreciated.
at the snowshed or the ramshead, and at all the lifts the staff were very friendly and welcoming.
The magic carpets at the ramshead and snowshed was perfect for my 3 years old for is first time on skis.
Overall a very good first experience there!! If it was one negative point: the temperature of the pool was too cold for me!!

Just returned from 5 days at Killington. Our first trip there and it was terrific. 8 of us stayed in a 3 bedroom Trail Creek condo. Check-in was simple and quick.. thank you, Yannick!. Check-out was even easier... just checked-out over the phone since we had prepaid. Living room was big enough for all of us - so was the dinning room so we could all hang together. Bedrooms were big enough with good windows for light. The mudroom was large so we could drop all our wet/snowy gear there without a hassle. We didn't cook (really liked Domenic's, Baja Burrito and Suishi Yoshi) but kitchen was fine and well equipped. Beds were pretty comfortable and bathrooms were clean and functional. Great location. Not ski out but easy ski in. In fact Ski IN was so easy we had lunch at the condo everyday. There's a shuttle bus or a short/easy 10 min walk to the slopes. The condo was clean and roomy and well set up. Nice fireplace with FREE firewood (had to pay for kindling at Smuggs last year). We were there over New Year's and although it seemed full, it never seemed crowded, though the parking lot is tight/crowded. Trail Creek has it's own (small) pool, sauna (our condo had a private sauna too) and hot tub (with plenty of towels) which was all fine and a pool table and a few video games. It was just a convenient, comfortable place and we can't wait to return. The skiers/riders in our group loved Killington. Crowded (it was New Year's!) but not ridiculous because there's lots of terrain and lifts. Great trail choices for all the different level skiers/riders in our group. A beautiful, wonderful, fun place.
