Virginia Ski LodgingFrom Resort Lodges to B&Bs
One of the most important parts of any ski-cation is knowing where you are going to be sleeping and storing your belongings. The Virginia resorts all have exceptional facilities either on-site or nearby. Or, your options (and potential savings) become even greater if you’re willing to stay offsite and drive in for your skiing. No matter if it’s just you or if you’re bringing along a bevy of friends or family, we can help you find the right Virginia ski lodging for your trip.
Virginia Ski Lodging for Bryce Hill
Bryce Hill has some great options for lodging. Chalet High and Bryce Hill Condominiums both offer quality rentals that can fit from 2 to 8 people per unit. If you have more people in your party, Creekside Realty is located at the entrance to the resort and has units that fit up to 12 people. If you want to stay offsite, New Market is only a half hour away and has a Days Inn and a Quality Inn. There is also a Super 8 that is roughly fifteen minutes away in Mount Jackson, but during peak ski season it books quickly.
Resting Your Head at Massanutten
The great thing about New Market is its location. It’s located about halfway between Bryce and Massanutten. The Blue Ridge Inn in New Market is an amazing value. Rooms range from $40 to $55 per night; it’s also a highly rated place to stay. About a half hour south of New Market is Massanutten Resort.
Massanutten has several properties onsite. All of them are excellent for weeklong or overnight stays, and some are mere steps away from the lift area. The onsite rentals sleep between 2 to 12 people and most have full kitchens, fireplaces, and a private deck. If you want to be close to the skiing, check out the Summit, Shenandoah Villas, or Eagle Trace at Killy Court.
Virginia ski lodging is also available off resort. The Mountainside Villas are one option for an upscale rental. The villas are all two bedroom, but they also have a pull-out sofa and a loft with two daybeds. Massanutten is also close to Harrisonburg. Several chain hotels are there, from Candlewood Suites to a Hampton Inn. If those are all booked, Staunton is a half-hour to the south and has more hotels easily accessible by the interstate.
Overnighting at Wintergreen
There are many options if you want to stay onsite at Wintergreen. There are individual guest rooms in the lodge, which sleep 2 to 4 people. For larger parties, the condominium rentals have up to five bedrooms, and there are houses with up to six bedrooms available. For an even larger group, the Blue Ridge Retreat house has 9 bedrooms and 10 and a half bathrooms. Peak cost for the Blue Ridge is $1590 per night, but split up among 20 people, this can become a steal at less than 80 bucks per person.
Offsite, Staunton is about an hour away by car. Waynesboro is half that distance and has four local chain hotels, all within minutes of the interstate. Another option for staying offsite is the Mark Addy Inn. This quaint bed and breakfast is a half-hour away by car. As an added bonus, there is a free three-course breakfast every morning at 9am.
The Omni Homestead Resort
If you’re like a lot of people who ski at the Omni Homestead, you’re going stay at the Omni. The Omni Hotel Group runs the resort, which centers on the property. There is a wide bevy of rooms available to choose from. The most luxurious is the President’s Suite, which features 1500 square feet, two master bedrooms, each with their own bathroom and each with their own pedestal tub. All of the rooms reflect the southern hospitality and charm that has defined the Homestead since its founding.
Offsite, there are a large number of privately owned inns north and south along SR220. The King’s Victorian Inn is very close, but if you’re willing to drive a few minutes, the Warm Springs Inn is a charming little bed and breakfast inn that would highlight a cozy ski-cation for two. For a standard chain hotel, Covington is fifteen minutes south of the Omni Resort. There are multiple chain hotels there, including a Holiday Inn, a Best Western, and a Budget.
