When thinking of ideal, family-friendly lodging in the
Londonderry, Vermont area, the Snowdon Chalet first comes to mind.
Situated in one of the most beautiful Green Mountains of southern
locations, I like the Snowdon Chalet for its clean rooms, bucolic
location with nice views of Magic Mountain, friendly service, and
reasonable rates that come in much lower than so many lodging places in
Vermont -- not even close in many instances. Comfortable beds, a
private bath, free WiFi, in-room refrigerator and microwave oven, a
free breakfast, BBQ grill, covered patio area with tables and
chairs and a pet-friendly policy enhance the Snowdon Chalet's appeal
that much more.
That the Snowden Chalet is not one of those high profile, all-inclusive
Vermont resorts doesn't matter to us. We'd rather enjoy the great
outdoors of Vermont and wonderful nearby attractions to instead
experience an all-inclusive Vermont travel experience! Plus, not
paying all that money for an upscale resort allows us some extra cash
to explore more of this idyllic region, or have a fancy meal out. We
especially like the lack of pretentiousness at the Snowden Chalet.

Many attractions are within close proximity to the Snowdon Chalet. In
the winter, downhill skiing and tubing opportunities abound at Magic
Mountain, Bromley Mountain, Stratton Mountain and Okemo Mountain.
Okemo is the farthest away -- only 18 miles and Magic Mountain, the
closest at one mile away. Additionally, cross country skiing
opportunities abound with the Viking Nordic Center two miles away, Wild
Wings Ski Touring Center and Yoga nine miles, and Okemo Valley Nordic
Center just 18 miles.
Vermont state parks include Lowell Lake State Park and Jamaica State
Park, while great hiking opportunities exist at West River Trail in
South Londonderry and the Log Trail at Stratton.
Several dining, shopping, and art gallery destinations further help the
appeal of this region with the Vermont Country Store in nearby
Weston perhaps being the most famous attraction. The Vermont Country
Store has been in business since 1946 and specializes in Yankee
bargains, Vermont-made clothing, heartwarming merchandise from
yesteryear and just about anything else under the sun.

It wouldn't be a stretch to spend several hours at the Vermont Country
Store, given its vast selection of merchandise. With dark wood charm
and a cavernous, but sweet smelling experience -- from the scented
candles to the incredible fudge -- the Vermont Country store is a
classic general store that isn't so general. Wonderful clothing,
candles, kitchen gadgets, furniture, and so many hard-to-find items
from yesteryear are amongst the 5,000 great products available at this
New England legend.
Additionally, Weston features the Weston Priory (a community of
Benedictine monks offering mass and prayer time) and a nice mix of
Vermont artisans, museums and antiques, as well as “world class
theater” at the Weston Playhouse. The town common, in the heart of
town, is one of New England's classic village greens -- a great place
to relax and reflect and take in the small town vibe.

Londonderry and Weston have great Vermont small town charm, so it's
heartwarming to know that a place like the Snowdon Chalet provides a
great, affordable foundation to traveling this quintessential Vermont
area. I highly recommend it!
Chalet is located at 4071, Route 11, Londonderry, VT. Tel.
