Great place to stay and super convenient to Okemo...less than 10min drive to the mountain. Beds are very comfortable, room was very neat and clean with a nice New England/rustic decor. Unlike a previous review, we had no issues with noise or light...you just never know wherever you stay what your "neighbors" will be like. We've stayed here before during non-Covid times and complimentary coffee is served in the morning in the office for guests. Although that is not possible now, I'm sure it will be in the future. There are several great coffee shops/cafes in town to get your morning fix. Hope to be back in the summer!
We stayed 2 nights a the motel when skiing at Okemo. Very friendly check in experience. Room was clean and beds comfortable. Room felt big due to cathedral ceiling. Loved the view of okemo from the window! Able to bring our dog. Great location for Okemo! Will be back.
We booked two nightsbut we did not stay a second night. Our experience was not good. We arrived around 7pm after a pretty harrowing drive. I went to check in and found the door locked. There was another customer and after waiting in the cold for a bit I used the phone to let the house manager know I was there, thinking this was what guests should do. I had a gruff reply instructing me to wait. I thought it would be quick otherwise he would have given me instructions to wait in my car. I waited in cold drizzle for 10 minutes while he kept chatting with the other guest. I should have made a dash to the restaurant. Then he led me to believe there were only three restaurants still serving in town, but didn't think anyone was still doing take out now that it was after 7. I told him I had my kid with me and needed to get her some dinner. He was no help. When I googled restaurants later in our room I saw that actually there were many that had still been opened at that time. We went to our room and found the fridge unplugged, minimal outlets, a television with poor reception, and no coffeemaker. For $250 they could at least plug in the fridge prior to a guest's arrival. And definitely have a mini coffeemaker. At 10pm guests arrived with very loud dogs on one side of us that would not stop barking. At 10:30 guests started having a very loud argument on the other side of us. I called to let the manager know, and maybe he spoke to them, but the banging and door slamming continued on into the night. I would recommend strongly that this inn makes an investment in curtains. The outside lights are bright and the shades that are currently in the room as window treatments. don't block them out. I had to sleep with a pillow over my head. Needless to say that both my daughter and I didn't sleep well at all. And as a result we decided not to stay the second night. So disappointing. We clearly made the wrong choice in booking here..…
Presidents weekend stay, room was extremely clean, smelt like it had been disinfected, bathroom spotless, beds clean and comfortable! Room was spacious and the proximity to okemo is wonderful (5 min drive) restaurants close by some even within walking distance. Owner was very nice, check in and check out was quick and easy. Will definitely add this place to my list when we take another VT ski trip.
I really appreciated the safety and convenience of direct access to my room, during this time of COVID-19 - no need to interact with other guests or utilize common spaces. My first floor room was spacious, spotless, modern/updated, and quiet. This privately owned motel is managed as if it were a B&B- great hospitality, friendly, well-maintained, responsive. The view of Okemo mountain, a-5-minute drive down the road, has been a welcome sight each morning. Highly recommend The Timber Inn for your Okemo area visit! Thanks to the Heitsmiths for a great stay!
