"A junk heap to behold"
This inn was in the worst ramshackle shape of any inn I have ever seen. The exterior picture we saw was a drawing I realize now. The snowy pic on this review covers all its ills. The inn is in bad need of restoration. It's paint is chipped and peeling. The landscaping is overgrown, weedy, as well as cluttered. What looked like a wildly spreading morning […] glory vine was overtaking the front porch, including its adirondack chairs! The inn sits on a corner, and except for the boarded up, abandoned building across the street, it was the worst building in sight. We did venture into the entrance lobby, and I must say that the interior looked generally fine, as had the pictures posted showing the interior rooms. We were then told to come back three hours later, because the maid either never made it in or had come in late, and our room wasn't ready. And, we were in the middle of nowhere! Yes, we left, took another motel room with lovely accommodations and closer to our final destination than claimed by the Salt Ash, as well. We, of course, cancelled, and lost two nights lodging, which had been paid for up front. We'll never do that again. I want to be able to cancel for any one of many reasons that might come up.

This is an old inn with charm. No handicap access and crazy steep stairs to get upstairs. Super small room and bath. I never saw any staff or got paperwork. At least they provided a fan for comfort.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location no personal contacts"
Place needs more if a personal touch, coffee in the morning , more feeling of security , options to buy a beverage in the beautiful resturant and barGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to ski mountain"
It was just what we needed for our family at last minute, though helpful we arrived late given room was over tavern.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"not worth the money"
The place wasn't worth the money. Choose to Killington but nothing around inn. Breakfast want included which in my eyes ruined the b&b feel. Wouldn't book againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Roughing it roughly"
Overall impression was of a nice restaurant/bar that wasn't open. Entrance not clearly marked...... Room was cold, toilet was not seated properly on the floor, therefore it rocked. Tub was rusty with no heat source for the bathroom.Genuine Expedia guest review
"An inexpensive hotel close to Okemo and Killington"
The room was clean, small bathroom and comfortable bed with Direct TV and free Wi-Fi,but that's all you're getting. Fine for two days skiing and staying overnight but would not recommend staying longer. There are zero amenities so bring soap! A lot cheaper than staying on the mountain. I would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"An easy stay if you plan to go skiing in Kilington"
Simple rooms. Fit one person comfortably. The hotel is ~15 minutes from Killington, so quite simple for being there when the ski day starts.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Killington & Okemo"
Very charming inn that is 15 minutes from Okemo and under 20 minutes from Killington. There is a ver nice bar and restaurant inside the inn, perfect for apres ski or a nice dinner. I stayed in the Notch room, which was usual for a B&B: somewhat dingy and not a lot of the creature comforts. If all you're looking for is a place to stay while you go skiing, […] then this place is great - cheap rates and close to the action. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, rough on edges, good value, good reataurant"
Stayed in "Union" room: very small and very rustic, but clean, and bed comfortable. Larger rooms available. Hotel owner MIA on arrival and never saw him-given key by very helpful bartender not associated with hotel. Spearate heat ok, but room was cold on arrival. Hot water very hot, handle came off in shower but it worked. No AM breakfast. Restaurant […] and bar in hotel but separate owners. Restaurant was excellent quality, apparently chef has a good following. Recommend eating here even if you don't stay. We had a room above the dining room side (not bar side) and it was not noisy. Suspect rooms could be noisy if crowded-we stayed on a Thursday night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Do not waste your time or money"
I do not recommend this place at all. It was extremely unclean and dilapidated. Save yourself the time and money and look elsewhere.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly but rustic"
A little further away then I thought it would be to ski area. Friendly staff but a bit rustic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Family ski vacation"
Both the staff and owner were extremely cordial, helpful and friendly. The location to Killington ski resort was a bit of a drive [20 minutes] but only because the resort itself takes about a good 10 minutes from one base lodge to the other. The Inn was extremely easy to find as it's located on the corner of Rt. 100 and Rt. 100A [anyone who frequently […] drives to most of Vermont's ski resorts will be well aware of Rt. 100]. Facilities were really old and could use a little modernization [thin walls, creaky floorboards, slightly worn carpeting in areas etc.], however it is the way it is in order to preserve the classic Vermont lodge atmosphere which it captures really well. Linen though, was clean and fresh. For a small Inn it was a bit disappointing that they only offer breakfast on holidays so plan to eat elsewhere if you have an early start. The restaurant however has nice food for lunch and dinner. This is a perfect place to stay if your intention is to spend most of the day on the mountain and/or exploring the neighbouring towns. Pricing was moderate and I found numerous sites that often have great deals for the Inn, so hunt those down and you wont be disappointed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay but a bit out of the way"
This is a good place to stay if you are in the area. It is a bit out of the way - not alot of restaurants or amenities nearby and you do NOT get cell phone service but it is quiet, clean and cute. We stayed on a weekday so there was no breakfast but the room was nice and since there were only 2 other families staying there we were able to play board […] games and pool in the common area without being crowded. The owner is pretty amenable to anything you want to do - have pizza delivered, pull out board games, bring your own food and drink, ect. Very laid back, make yourself at home atmosphere. Just be prepared for the owner to not always be around since he runs the place by himself (which is only a problem if you expect to be waited on hand and foot) and also expect to be pretty much in the middle of nowhere. Other than that its a super cute, romantic, fun place to stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Tiny room, but the last one available."
We were very surprised at the size of the room, but it was very clean and we were only going to be here for one night. Breakfast was adequate, nothing fancy. No bar available. We would not stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst room ever - Straight out of a horror movie"
This was the dirtiest room I have ever booked in years of travel. There was hair and dust everywhere. There was painters tape on the walls. It was 50 degrees in the room. There were no rugs. It smeeled of mold as well. This room was worse than a $19 room where you would go when you hit rock bottom in life. My wife and I left and drove 5 hours at night […] to arrive back at home instead and lost a day of our weekend getaway. It was really that bad. Never stay here!

"Worst Hotel I ever saw!"
When we arrived there was no staff, just a note on how to get to the rooms. Rooms were 100 degrees and floors felt like you could fall through them. Hotel was old and toilet in one of the rooms was not cleaned from previous guest. We had booked 3 rooms but left and drove to Rutland and stayed in another Hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Qualité de l'auberge à réévaluer"
L 'auberge est très mal localise, n'offrant aucun service aux environs, à l'intersection de 2 routes, au bas d'une pente et à quelques mètres de la chaussée. Avons refuse de dormir dans de telle chambre aux fenêtres sales, à la décoration non renouvelée, au tapis de propreté douteuse, petite et dont les couvertures de lit n'inspirent pas confiance. Le […] prix d'un tel hébergement est vraiment trop élevé. Avons du payer la moitié du prix pour annuler la chambre. Malgré les avis d'Expedia.ca qui nous a assure, au début octobre, qu'il n'y avait aucune autre chambre disponible aux environs de Woodstock, avons trouve à nous loger dans un motel plus convenable que le Salt Ash Inn. Donc cette nuit nous a coûté très cher! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very deceptive online reviews! NOT family oriented and horrible accommodations."
04/08/15 Hair A Chalfont, Pennsylvania
My family and I planned our first snowboarding trip to Vermont and looked online and read reviews to find a nice B&B. This came highly recommended online and the reviews were good. We went snowboarding at Okemo then came back for our first night at Salt Ash Inn. It was snowing and we were hungry. When we arrived it was cold and musky in the house, our room located in the "attic" was old and musky. The beds lumpy and scratchy covers. The bathroom located in the room, the lightbulb shorted out and then we couldn't turn it off all night. NO cell phone reception! No extra toilet paper (had to go searching...WHAT?!?!) The breakfast was only offered on Sunday (we stayed Monday too!) and it was kinda crappy. Cold cereal...we are in the Maple syrup capital of the USA ! We were told NO breakfast on Monday....crazy! We tried to order a pizza for delivery but was told by the pizza place they were too busy (understandable) and we could drive and get it....we tried but you are located at the base of a small mountain and it's being closed for landslides in summer of 2015...need I say more, we couldn't get up the mt. and my husband drives a snow truck. I had a panic attack about staying another night but we did bc we couldn't find anyone to tell about our experience. When we checked our early on Monday we picked up the house phone and was answered "WHAT" and very curtly. Obviously they have a tech savvy person for their reviews. DON"T STAY!!!!!
"ILL mannered innkeeper makes stay a nightmare"
03/26/15 jimrock914 Wethersfield, Connecticut
My wife and I ski race in New England, mostly Vermont, all winter long and always travel with our 100lb dog. We arrived at 9:30 pm and found that the access to our 2nd fl room was a icy steep open back tread exterior stairway. Every dogs nightmare. I had to leave early in the morning to register for our races and left my wife to walk the dog. I returned to find that our dog "froze" on second step and would not go up or down the stairs. My wife pleaded on the phone with the innkeeper to unlock the door to the interior so the dog could go down the inside stairs. The alleged innkeeper, Alan, refused and offerred her no help at all. He would not even leave his room! Other guests tried to help her but the dog wanted no part of the stairs. I had to carry him down and back. We had no time to waste so we left for our races. During the day we found another place to stay. We returned at 4:00pm. I now met Alan for the first time. I told him that we were checking out and he raised his voice to me, blamed our dog, my wife and myself. Then, in his own defense, he said " when your wife called me this morning I was passed out". This happened at 7:30am at a B&B! When we returned home after the weekend, we found that he charged us for the three days that we had planned to stay!! I am 64yrs old and have never experienced treatment like this anywhere. There are many fine warm and welcoming places to stay in the area. This is not one of them!
We stayed here for one night after skiing at Okemo. We checked in after a day of skiing and the person at the front desk was really friendly. He brought us outside and down some steps that were covered in ice to another building where our room was. The heat hadn't been turned on so the room was absolutely freezing, and we couldn't turn it up past 68. 68 is NOT warm! If you have guests coming and you know which room they'll be in, I would think you could at least turn the heat on. We slept with hats on it was so cold. And being a "b&b" when you serve cold cereal in the morning is a joke.
"New Years saved"
This review is a little late- my group including my boyfriend, his sister and another 4 friends was over this past New Years. Most of us had never been to the area and did not realize that we needed to book a rental home many months in advance. We started looking in November and were discouraged when we could not find any homes. Then I found the add for Salt Ash and we were relieved. We rented 3 rooms and had the best time. The location is actually great- it is located between both Okemo and Killington/ Pico so were were able to check out all three. The owner Al is awesome, you kind of feel like you are staying at his house as your see him around the property and in the restaurant for dinner. Some previous reviewers complained about the noise, but we didn't have any problems. It's true, the free breakfast is lacking a little (Eggo waffles, cold cereal, coffee, juice), but it's free and you can't beat the price of the Inn overall. Also, Kelly's restaurant was awesome- great food and employees. We ended up eating there most nights because then we didn't have to worry about driving after having drinks. They did run out of a few menu items, but always improvised and more than made up for it. Overall we had a great time!
"Low frills but quaint"
We stayed at the Salt Ash Inn for a spontaneous weekend trip to ski Killington. Our room was small but nice and cozy. We read reviews about it being cold so we packed an electric blanket and we were fine. The room was actually not very cold, but you do want extra warmth after a day of skiing. If you go into your stay with realistic expectations, you won't be disappointed. The breakfast is very basic - just coffee, juice, toast, cereal, and instant oatmeal. If you're looking for a BnB with the emphasis on the second B, then look elsewhere and on a different (higher) price range. The restaurant (Kelly's) is excellent. Good service and the food is great. Adult drink selection is limited to beer, wine, and hard cider, but the atmosphere is very Vermont. The location is great -- 10 minutes from Killington's Skyeship gondola and 20 minutes from the main K1 Lodge. We really enjoyed our stay and we would stay again. It's a great bargain and you get exactly what you pay for.
"The Salt Ash Inn has character and soul, almost as much as the fantastic staff."
I stayed here with a group of friends over New Years on our ski trip. It is the perfect place for anyone who wants an experience worth remembering. If you want bland and predictable you should stick to Holiday Inn Express. Al and his staff provide a friendly, laid back atmosphere that really allows you to forget the outside world and enjoy the present. Kelly's, the attached restaurant and bar, is run by a former pro-snowboarder, who's passion for good food matches his abilities on the slopes. The food was so good we ate there 3/4 nights. Okemo, Killington and several other resorts are all within a 20 minute drive. Salt Ash Inn is one of a kind, and if you don't have a great time it's your own fault.
"Salt Ash Win"
12/17/14 Kurt S Ronkonkoma, New York, United States
This place is awesome! Quant inn tucked into the hills of Plymouth VT, Long trail Brewery is right up the road as are Okemo and Killington. The staff is fantastic, very polite and helpful. Great beer on tap at the bar. The rooms are very cozy, I stayed in the moore room which holds 5 people and has a separate room with a queen bed which is great for families on a vacation, and you really cant beat the price. All around amazing place. Can not wait to go back in the summer!
"Best BnB EVER!!!!"
12/15/14 Wiley G West Orange, New Jersey, United States
Do you fancy a quite place to hang up your shoes after a long Vermont hike or Bike ride down the Vermont country roads? How about relaxing at your own personal restaurant and bar after a great day on the mountain? Well the Salt Ash Inn provides awesome affordable, cozy Vermont living not far from local mountains. Its also less than 15 minutes from the FAMOUS Long Trail Brewery Co. (amazing beer!). My wife and I stay at the Salt Ash every time we come to Vermont and love it!!!!
"Cozy, Quaint, and Full of Character"
12/15/14 b00gie0n NYC
I cannot express enough how wonderful The Salt Ash Inn is. I spent a weekend up there with a bunch of friends and had the most amazing time. The entire place has a super homey feel, with an adorable fire place, cozy rooms, and really sweet staff. For the price of the rooms, I felt that my friends and I got WAY more than we paid for!! We spent time there in early December (a few days a ago) and are already thinking of taking another trip up from New York in the summertime. The only reason I was at all hesitant to write a review was because I didn't want everyone to find out about this place and drive the prices up. Can't wait to visit again!
The whole place was so cute and way bigger than it seemed online!! There were balconies in a lot of rooms and a huge backyard with a fire pit. Very beautiful with the nicest people running the place!!
