I want to take my girlfriend for a weekend ski trip but am not sure where to go. We are both pretty low maintenance and we would prefer cozy to fancy. We would also like to stay within 4 hours of Boston. Thanks!

I stayed at the Vermont Inn with my Ex-wife a few years ago. We had a suite with a fireplace and a 2 person jacuzzi in our room. They had a great restaurant and bar too. It's about 5 minutes from Killington and about 3 minutes from Pico. Prices weren't too bad from what I remember.

I hear Powder Ridge has some super deals going on.

Oh you want something real? Pat's Peak, Crotched, Ragged, Gunstock, Waterville. All real close.

If you'd like a bit of challenge skip Loon and head to Cannon.

If you're really undecided, then just find a nice B&B near North Conway and wing it. Then depending on ambition/ skill / conditions, you can hit Cranmore, Attitash, Black, Wildcat, or even Bretton Woods.

has anyone had luck with using airbnb to get a place before near a resort?

I would second how important is the skiing on your trip vs. the hanging with the GF. That might make a difference in decision making :)

Both VT and NH have a lot of great B&B's. Definitely a cozier option than a condo or resort hotel. The place I mentioned above is an old farm house that was converted. We had a great time.

A trip the with GF is always tricky, if she is new to it I would say North Conway, plenty of mountains, plenty to do in less than great conditions and is very affordable if you search around. I just got back from a week trip with mine and we hit Smuggs, Jay, and Sugarbush. Have found some great B&Bs that are $40-$70 cheaper through expedia, hotels.com, etc. than booking through the B&B themselves.

We use Homeaway ands VRBO before in Nantucket and Mittersill. IT works out great.

I know this going to make me sound like a homer, but We very much enjoyed Sunday River, staying at the Snow Cap inn. There is a jacuzzi in the front yard, plenty of dining options, on and off resort, and the skiing caters to all skill levels. A good friend of mine likes staying at the Bethel inn and country club. There is a free shuttle to Sunday River and a break in the price for tickets. He related to me that the Bethel Inn and Country club was one of the more romantic places he has stayed.

Yes but the Pocono's would be a bit further than 4hrs. though.:grin:

Beautiful Mont Airy Lodge or is that Mountain Airy?

So 4 hour and 20 minutes from Boston to Poconos. I am 3 hours west of Boston and about 1 hour and 20 minutes for me to get to the Casino in Pocono Down and they just build new hotel their.


I think it is Mount Airy.

Beautiful Mount Airy Lodge was the jingle in the commercial. I hope it's been updated since then those commercials are over twenty years old lol
