Pros: Lovely older couple who are very friendly. The food, and flexibility of the hosts as to timing of breakfast was also very nice. Perfect for one night or two. Too small for a longer stay, unless out all day….[for example - if you are there to ski]. You can tell they take a lot of pride in their home and treat you like a special guest.
Cons: Room was a bit small but adequate. A little to close to road, so one could hear traffic.
Pros: hospitality was superb, breakfast was a feast...
attention to detail is excellent, the owners truly go out of their way to please you... only 20 minutes from Jay Peak, it is a great alternative to expensive mountain lodging. You won't be disappointed!
Cons: if I had to say something, the bed was a little soft for my liking...
When visiting Lowell, The Rendezvous Bed & Breakfast is a great choice to consider. Guests looking to stay active can check out the nearby cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, and snowboarding, and free perks include WiFi, self parking, and full breakfast daily.
Cons: Unless you're skiing or at the water park, this place is overrated. Garbage all over sidewalk near entrance of hotel. Air conditioner did not work, bathroom sink separate from toilet and shower area (awkward having to open doors to wash hands).
Cons: I thought it was connected to water park but it is a separate area; a different hotel on property connects
Pros: Scenic location
Cons: The odor in the room, the large unpaved parking lot that was a long distance from the hotel, the lack of any restaurants and other amenities within reasonable proximity.
It's a manufactured ski resort (no town nearby, no atmosphere.) it might be good for skiing but not worth the drive or the $ for their small, crowded water park.
Pros: The diner in the hotel was surprisingly good. Good food, good value.
Cons: Very noisy rooms, expect a bad nights sleep. Water park is far smaller than the photos suggest (if you can stand the noise, your kids will lose interest after an hour or two of waiting in lines.) The hotel overcharged me, apologized but no refund!
Pros: It went green.
Cons: Yes the breakfast was buffet (below average) and super expensive. $50 for 2 adults and 2 kids.
Pros: The resort was amazing! Our kids loved the Pump House indoor water park and did not want to leave. The staff was incredibly helpful and went above and beyond to assist us. We are making Jays Peak our new family vacation destination!
Pros: We were at Jay Peak for a wedding and were pleased with the accommodations.
great skiing and resort atmosphere
Pros: cottage layout and cleanliness, accessibility to shuttle bus
Cons: no bathroom on bedroom's floor

Pros: Small but cozy rooms. The restraint serves excellent food too.
Pros: It was quite and calm
Cons: Too expensive for the space given. No room to workout.
Cons: Room was hot with no AC upon late night arrival, staff was nice and brought us fans the next day but our first night was uncomfortably hot. Also the water has a smell and taste that isn't very pleasant. I chose to brush my teeth with bottled water.
Pros: Retro ski inn with a great staff in a perfect location. The food served is on point. Perfect place to stay while skiing Jay.
Cons: Tv and rooms were outdated but I wasn't there for these amenities.
Pros: It was a quaint hotel with a nice public space downstairs. Fireplace felt very good as it was a very cold day. Staff was very friendly.
Cons: Room did not have as many beds as I expected. The shower stall was way too small and very hard to shower in. Our room must have been located directly over the kitchen as it was very loud with banging noises and a radio playing. Too expensive!
No public space except at the restaurant downstairs which had chairs and tables but lighting was set to low so reading was difficult. It was also loud during dining hours and we had to compete with dining customers for space.
Pros: Parking at the premises was free and convenient. Food was the only other good thing ... DO NOT STAY HERE
Cons: Do not stay here. Housekeeping did NOTHING. Bed was awful. Room was cramped. Cigarette smoke from kitchen area drifted up to our hallway and room. Cold were halls, room, bath. Thermostat setting for room temp did not function. DO NOT STAY HERE.
I would recommend going for the winter season because there will probably be more to do when you get to Jay.
Pros: I was very with the attached restaurant, it was delicious! Also the rooms were small but felt like home so it was nice to stay there 2 nights.
Cons: Because it was in a small town and it was not the season to be there I think the service was a little slow and not always there 24/7 but it was really a great place to stay.
The first room they gave us had flys and lady bugs all over the ceiling and window. The second room, very small.The tv was on top of the frig. (which was the biggest item in the room?) the bathroom was big, almost half the size of the room.. in the bathroom. the tolet seat was cracked, the ceiling fan cover was falling down, the shower head was huge and shot water out like needles. The lighting was poor. Just poor space management for that size room. I have stayed in b/b alot but this was not good, no coffee set up down stair for guest. In this area other than the large add very nice lodge at jay's peak ski resort, There was no other hotels to stay at.. The inn was WAY OVER PRICED.At an average price ofxxx per night for three nights. I guess if you are there for only the sking you might over look some of this. The grill down stairs was nice and the food was good.
Cons: rooms very small,
The Jay Village Inn is a great choice for a stay in Jay. The restaurant is the perfect spot for a bite to eat, and after having fun at the seasonal outdoor pool, you can unwind with a drink at the bar/lounge. A spa tub, a sauna, and a garden are other highlights.
