Activities/Attractions: The Killington Region is an all-season vacation destination. With some of the highest and most varied mountain terrain in New England, Killington is the choice for outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds. Killington Resort is one of the largest ski areas in the world - 95 miles of skiing and snowboarding terrain, many of which also support mountain biking and hiking when the snows have melted. The famous Appalachian and Long Trails transverse these mountains.
For less rugged adventure, this spectacular mountain setting is home to two PGA golf courses, with 12 area courses just a short drive away. The Killington Region is known as the heart of Vermont for more than one reason. Ideally located in the center of the state, it is the perfect base for all of your Vermont adventures. The Inn is ideally located right on route 4, 1/4 mile up the road from Killington Pico base lodge, making the Inn at Long Trail one of the closest inns to Killington. Also the new Green Mountain Golf Course is only minutes away.
McGrath's Irish Pub at the Inn at Long Trail in Killington is the area's first and foremost Irish pub.
"The public areas of the Inn were charming and rustic. Nice fireplace area with plenty of seating, sunny TV/game room well stocked with games/reading material. Didn't use indoor hot tub, but it looked good. A hearty and prompt breakfast was included. Dinner was also included on two nights and were the best meals we had during our stay. Pleasant Irish pub, good pub menu, with live Irish music on weekends. Nice mix of locals and guests. Note: Pub plays Irish music 24/7, requests for a wee bit O' anything else politely denied. All around a very pleasant and comfortable place to stay with a friendly staff and reasonable prices. Would recommend and stay again."
"Tucked away between Deer Leap and Pico Peak, this inn is the perfect find for hikers and nature-lovers alike. I stayed in their fireplace suite and found the fireplace so welcoming to come back to in the chilly Vermont nights. And at the low prices that the suites go for, I couldn't imagine a better deal. The owners of the inn are incredibly friendly and embody good ol' Irish hospitality. A wonderful hot breakfast is included with the stay, served in a rustic dining room built around an original Deer Leap boulder. At night, the Irish pub buzzes with locals and houseguests who crave their famous pint of Guinness. Overall, I was very satisfied with the stay and will definitely return there on my next visit to Killington."
"I stayed here one night for some day hiking and loved it. The rooms were decent and cheap, and the whole place had a rustic Adirondack-type look to it. The crowd in the pub was great - a mix of locals and hikers, mostly thru-hikers on the Appalachian and long trails so you can get some great stories. The room came with a full breakfast, which was definitely not "continental". I ordered a little extra and paid $1.90 for a huge plate of food. I'll definitely come here again."
"This is a great place! The owners (Murray and Patty McGrath) are wonderful, friendly people. The country decor of this establishment is superb. Best of all, the Guinness (on tap) is the BEST you'll find ANYWHERE! It is poured slowly, and NOT over chilled! Also, the Friday and Saturday night bands provide excellent Irish/folk music. Don't miss the Inn at Long Trail. It has been a favorite of mine for MANY years."

"I love this place. We have stayed at the Inn at Long Trail twice and have always had a great time. Good location, the best food, and nice rooms. Have stayed in the country bedroom (no TV) and it was small. Stayed in the fireplace room last November 03' and loved it. You get a TV, fireplace, and a rustic feeling. A+"
"We loved this place. We were looking for what we perceived as a typical, rustic Vermont experience, and that's what we felt we received. If you are looking for 5 star, this is not your destination. The rooms and bathrooms are a bit dated and basic, but very clean and comfortable. So what was so great about the visit? They have a big communal living area with a fire place, comfy chairs and don't seem to mind if you sit all day. There is a games room with puzzles, etc. There were no kids staying there during our stay, but they are happy to have families staying. There is a big spa that sits about 10 people. We got the dinner bed and breakfast package. The food was pretty good, but the deserts were outstanding (apparently the chef is a pastry chef, and it shows!). Waiting staff were cheerful. The Irish pub on site is good fun, and plays live music, and it's great not to have to go outside to get home. Owners were exceptionally friendly. We'll be back!"
