Top 3 Reasons to Choose Jackson Gore at Okemo Mountain Resort

Over Memorial Day weekend, we were guests at Okemo Mountain Resort, all opinions are mine.

We had such a wonderful time visiting Okemo Valley in Vermont this Spring. The weather didn’t completely cooperate for the first portion, but we had one of the most perfect days of the season right before we left. The sky was a perfect blue and the air seemed so fresh and clean. I miss it already!  It was our first time visiting the area, so we really didn’t know what to expect. Our first stop was Jackson Gore Inn of course to check in. This is one of Okemo Mountain Resorts many accommodations offered in the valley. Driving up to the resort on that cold rainy night, it was clear that we’d hit the jackpot. Talk about instant mood changer! This place is in an ideal location, slopeside, nestled right at the base of the mountain.  After being greeted cheerfully, we were told that we’d be staying in Adams House. This is one of their more spacious off the 3 places to stay in the village which offers a little more privacy than staying closer to all the action.  Their Adams House has heated indoor parking, which was awesome! We parked and ran off to our room to see what awaited!

HUGE! Yes, our “room” was huge! I’ve actually lived in smaller apartments, true story. I felt like a kid at a candy store, racing from room to room to check the place out.  I officially fell in love with the master bathroom that had his and her sinks. Ah! This would be a good weekend.


Top 3 Reasons to Stay at Jackson Gore Inn 

There are a million and one great things I could say about the Inn, but I figured I would sum it up into just 3. Don’t want to ruin any fun surprises that you might encounter when planning your own trip!

1. Awesome Location.  Jackson Gore Village is located slopeside at the base of a mountain. This resort is surrounded by beautiful mountain views.  It is located centrally to area attractions and good eats in the Okemo Valley area of Vermont.  Not that you’d necessarily ever want to leave, the resort itself is practically a vacation on its own!

2. Amenities.  At Jackson Gore there are many room options. You can choose rooms that sleep as many as 12 guests! Our room could sleep up to 8 with a master bedroom and two pull out beds. We had a full kitchen and laundry! The rooms are very roomy and comfortable. We had two bathrooms and my favorite of favorite things was the electric fireplace! Of course the rooms were furnished with flat screen TVs too. I also loved the small dining table making it easy to cook and eat right in your own comfort zone. Great for family bonding on vacation.

3. Family Fun.  Jackson Gore Village makes for the perfect family vacation in Vermont. There is literally something for everyone. One of the most fun things we did was head to the Adventure Zone where my son jumped 30 feet into the Amp Energy Bag or their awesome mountain coaster the “Timber Ripper” which I went on 3 times in a row. It’s located right in the resort, we could walk there in just a minute from our room. We also enjoyed their Segway tour which was a totally awesome adventure. They also have golf and many other fun things to do all in your reach.

One of the other things that I just loved is that they have large fire pit right at the resort. It’s lit up nightly to enjoy, it is also within walking distance right at the resort.  Now on to other things to do there! They also have tennis, a basketball court, a gym and a vacation wouldn’t be complete with pools!

We loved the outdoor/indoor pool. The very large pool starts indoors and leads outdoors. There is also a sauna and steam room to enjoy as well as a hot tub! This is just one of the pools available to you if you choose Jackson Gore.

So, as you can see there are lots of reasons to stay at Jackson Gore in Okemo Valley! Head over to the Okemo Mountain Resort website for details or to book your stay!
