History of Killington’s Summit Lodge
The Summit Lodge, the first lodge built in Killington, was established in 1960. Current innkeeper, Emmett O’Dwyer and his family purchased the lodge in March 2016 from long time Innkeeper Billy Bauer. Emmett and Billy spent over a year working on the transition for this purchase as they knew just how important it was to ensure that the values and traditions of the Summit Lodge were continued going forward protecting the heart and soul of the building and the business.
Setting foot through the doorway of the Summit Lodge is like stepping back in time. The Summit staff feel strongly that the lodge maintains the lifestyle of the classic New England lodge. The décor of hand-hewn beams, fieldstone fireplaces and prominently displayed antiques create a warm and welcoming ambiance. After a long day on the slopes, sink into an overstuffed chair and enjoy a signature Summit cocktail in front of a roaring fire.
During the winter months, our O’Dwyer Public House (located on-site) serves a complete dinner menu, including fresh salads and tantalizing appetizers. A full-country breakfast is also included with your stay. With the slopes only minutes away, take advantage of our FREE shuttle from the Summit front door to Snowshed Base Lodge and enjoy a day of skiing or riding.
Staying at the Summit Lodge continues to be a family tradition. We are proud to welcome back our past guests and continue the ritual of greeting third generation guests each year
