- Heading to the ski school and fitness center in your hotel
Have a winter getaway to remember at Jay Peak Resort’s Stateside Hotel & Baselodge. You’ll have a whole mountain of snow for Alpine skiing, with no less than 78 trails, slopes and glades. You’ll also have the resort’s ski school, to take you from the bunny hill to the black diamonds. The terrain comprises 385 acres, and is graced by the most snow in eastern North America.
When you need a break from the slopes, you can hit mile-away, property-owned The Pump House indoor waterpark, which has a 65-ft. chute, a Flowrider, a lazy river, a kids’ area and more. There’s also an indoor skating rink, Ice Haus, where you can get your wintry fix in another way. Year-round, you can unwind in Taiga Spa, or enjoy social events and shops (for ski, skating or surfing gear, natch), as well as your recently redeveloped hotel’s diner, base lodge, fitness center and bar. There’s truly something for everyone here.
Good to know
Please note that water-park access is not included.
Please note that a resort fee of $25 per room, per night will be added on the payment screen. The resort fee includes use of the resort shuttle, parking, Wi-Fi and entrance to the ice rink during public skate hours. These are limited to public skate or stick-and-puck scheduled hours, which can be found on the hotel’s website.
Your room is one of 85 in the recently redeveloped hotel and baselodge. The new Stateside Hotel is ski-in, ski-out and rooms feature a TV and Wi-Fi access, plus a comfortable bed or beds and great views. You’ll also enjoy a private bath, mini-fridge, coffee station and microwave.
As a guest in the hotel, you’ll be just upstairs from the Bullwheel Bar and Howie’s Restaurant and Bar. The first mixes après-ski cocktails – not that you can’t treat yourself to a drink without skiing first – and the second prepares meatloaf, breakfast skillets, sandwiches and other American eats. There’s also The Foundry, which opens for more hours of the week than the others. These are just a small selection of the eating and drinking spots at the resort, of course; there are more in the other buildings throughout the property. They run from comfort-food destination Alice’s Table in Tram Haus Lodge to Mountain Dick’s pizza (which has a beer-and-wine license of its own).
Give your muscles a break from outdoor adventures at Taiga Spa, where the list of massages includes deep-tissue, Swedish and hot-stone options. You can also come here for manis, pedis and waxes.
Jay Peak Resort sits in northern Vermont, on its namesake mountain, one of the Green Mountains. There’s fantastic snowboarding and skiing (downhill and cross-country) in the winter, thanks to the 78 trails, slopes and glades. You can take lessons in the first at the ski academy or head there with any children you’re toting along.With the exception of nearby Old Stone House Museum and the Orleans County Society, recreation in town revolves mostly around the all-seasons getaway. This is thanks to the NHL-sized skating arena, used by local hockey teams; the massive waterpark, with areas for both children and adults; rides on Vermont’s only aerial tram; and the year-round events.
How to Get There
I recently visited for an outdoor bluegrass concert. The hotel is modern and clean. Check in was easy and staff friendly. Breakfast was included, which was very good. The location of the hotel to the outdoor concert setting was excellent as it was adjacent to the stage. The only concern I have with my experience is the fact that Jay allowed concert goes who did not purchase a hotel room to camp over night in the parking lot. Many people slept in their vehicles and the morning parking lot resembled a Woodstock aftermath. I am all for allowing people to camp - I just think Jay needs to create a camping area separate from the hotel's parking lot.
Several days ago my wife and I stayed at this hotel. Located at one end of the resort it is approximately a five minute drive to the main base area (Tramside), where the gondola to the mountain peak and water park are located.
The hotel was neat and clean as was our room. However, other than a sofa bed that had been well-used there was nowhere else to sit.
When I asked what the resort fee (approximately $25) covered I was told wifi access, a shuttle bus between all parts of the resort and the ability to make free calls anywhere in the world. Being frequent travelers we are used to having free wifi and have the ability to make wifi calls for no additional cost. As a result the resort fee provided little value.
Finally, there is a restaurant on the second floor that provides a good breakfast (with a good view of the mountain).
All Resort personnel was very personable and knowledgeable.
3rd family visit to Jay Peak Resort. 1st time for a hockey tournament and 1st time at Stateside Lodge. The overall Jay Peak resort is gorgeous, spotless, and has tons to do. Waterpark, two arcades, rock wall climbing, ropes course, movie theater etc. Hotel Jay is our favorite, but Stateside is a good option to save $$ while still having a beautiful room. We're in a regular 2bed hotel room at Stateside for this trip. It has a mini fridge and microwave. Coffee maker not my favorite..it uses those paper coffee pods and some odd brand of cheap coffee that tastes horrible. This hotel has a diner but nowhere else to just get a cup of decent coffee without driving over to hotel jay which is a good mile away down steep hills not something I would recommend walking to. Our Room has huge closet and lots of extra hooks, benches, storage spaces which is nice. Cons....Our hockey team is scattered throughout multiple properties here and none have rooms together despite our requests. We did have a function room for a team dinner last night which was nice. The wait staff was nice, but ran out of plates, didn't have tablecloths on tables, kept running out of salad dressing etc just seemed odd given the expense. Overall I definitely love the resort amenities but everything is expensive here. On top of price to stay being $800 up for a wknd including waterpark passes, you have resort fees, taxes, and then another $50 per day charged to credit card at ck in for incidentals which they credit after you ck out. You cannot use cash, cks, or debit cards for the $50 daily fee either so luckily my husband had a card with him as I don't. Overall we'll likely be back but it's pricey.
