Steak, glorious steak.
The Wobbly Barn is the steakhouse of your dreams
Open 20-some years and going strong, Peppino’s is the place to go for pasta on the mountain. This is Italian food at its finest. Don’t be discouraged by the crowds … it is worth the wait.
For fine dining the way the locals do, Birch Ridge is the place to be. Self-defined as ‘refined, not rustic,’ you’ll feel very much as if you’re having supper in Grandma’s formal dining room.
For those days – or nights – when you just don’t feel like trekking out for lunch or dinner, we have a solution for you. Moguls Sports Pub is located directly across the street from Killington Mountain Lodge.
About an hour’s drive from Killington Mountain Lodge on Route 4, you can reach Vermont’s own ‘Little Grand Canyon,’ Quechee Gorge. It’s the state’s deepest gorge, formed by glacial activity more than 13,000 years before your visit!
Truly a hop and a skip from Quechee Gorge, you’ll discover a natural wonder known as VINS – that stands for Vermont Institute of Natural Science. Explore the Gorge, then head to the nature center. It’s easy to do both activities in one day.
Life on our mountain might be like a box of chocolates, but at Lake Champlain Chocolates, you know what you’re going to get. And, in case you haven’t put milk and cocoa together by now, that’s some really good chocolate.
Roaming the streets of Downtown Middlebury is like roaming into a living history. In fact, the village is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The buildings, although aging, are incredibly well maintained. They house a multitude of inviting local shops, book stores, restaurants, art galleries.
If you’re looking for a special souvenir to commemorate your visit, you’re sure to find it at Danforth Pewter. The factory and associated store are located in Middlebury, but almost every little town we’ve visited near Killington Mountain Lodge has a Danforth store.
