    Here's my review from another site, where the lowest rating was 'terrible': “There's no rating lower than 'Terrible!'?” Too bad, there should be for this place, e.g., 'Awful!', 'Stay Away!'. At any rate, to continue: Want to ski at Ascutney? You can't, the skiing is closed for the winter. Want bread at Brown's? You can't get any, there isn't any put on the table. They will toast you a hamburger roll if you ask. Want service at Brown's? You can't get it, there aren't enough wait staff in attendance to give you service. Want heat in your condo or room? If the temp outside is 55 or above, there isn't any. The corporation has decided, from the comfort and warmth of their location in Orlando, FLORIDA, that you can't have any. A space heater will be provided for you until the temp goes down. Want your room cleaned as part of your rates? You can't get it, they don't provide it. You'll have to pay either $15. a day or $26. a day, depending on which front desk person you ask. Want a towel exchange instead, for $7. a day? Don't bother, they SEEM to be typing in your request, but then don't bother doing it. Want to have your party together in one building and think you're getting your request in the contract? You can't get it, since they don't honor requests. Want something to drink out of in your bathroom? You can't, they don't provide cups, you'll have to ask for cups from the front desk. Want a nice stay at a well-run, efficient, customer-friendly resort for a decent price? Well then do not stay at the Ascutney!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Room Tip: To choose a good room, go to another hotel. Do not go to the Ascutney!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The mountain is currently closed/out of business for skiing (Jan 2011) but the lodge is very nice. Huge, remodeled rooms, nice staff. Full sized fridge, full stove, microwave, dishwasher. large table, tv, fireplace, dvd player, free wi-fi. Nice workout facility (separate building) with giant pool, squash courts. All around nice. 20 miles from Okemo.

    This is one of the worst places we ever stayed. The owners are updating, but it was very run down, to the point of balconies sloping! When we returned to our room at the end of the second day, it had STILL not been cleaned - trash was overflowing, so we called the front desk and were informed there ""wasn't housekeeping"" in our particular building!! What hotel doesn't do houskeeping?! Also, room was extremely tiny with NO amenities. Coffee pot, but no coffee, no fridge, no toiletries, barely room to turn around. Also, despite claims, there is nothing to do for miles around - one tiny general store a few miles up the road. Fall scenery was pretty, but next time we'll stay in Stowe or Burlington. We heard several others in the lobby complaining about various issues during our stay. The so-called spa was run down and not even available during our stay. Really dreadful.

    The brochure for Orange Lake Ascutney, in most instances, does not correctly reflect the merits of the facility. During our 5 night stay, housekeeping never visited our room and a related query to the less than friendly front desk was that they did not clean the rooms every day. During this query we asked for additional towels, which they did furnish that one time. Dirty towels were allowed to accumulate in a pile on the floor of the bathroom during our entire stay. Only one of the five restaurants reflected in the brochure was open, and on our first evening the less than friendly Matre-D referred to a 25 minute wait which evolved into more than an hour, and then it took 30 minutes for the less than spectacular food to be served. The lack of restaurants was compounded when we found there were no decent restaurants within 30 miles of this remote facility. The room had no Kitchenette, and while there was a coffee pot, there was no coffee available in either the room or front desk. The walls were apparently not well insulated as we could easily hear conversations in the adjoining room. While the room rates were very reasonable, the facility itself did nothing to add to the breathtaking views surrounding the facility.
