Hillside Inn is located off Nanak Way, the first road on the left going up Killington Road.

In 2018, Killington Resort purchased the Mendon Mountain View Lodge to begin offering housing to employees. This lodge consists of 39 rooms, a full kitchen, a lounge and community space. Due to the increased need for housing, the resort rented the Hillside Inn this past winter and finalized its purchase on April 15.

This lodge consists of 90 rooms, laundry, and two lounges. A communal kitchen will be added as part of renovations this summer. Both locations are on the bus route for transportation to the resort and to Rutland. Together, both properties will house over 275 employees, creating one of the largest employee housing options offered by an employer in the state.

“After purchasing the Mendon Mountain View Lodge in 2018 alongside the continued trend of a tight housing market, we knew we needed to provide more,” said Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort and Pico Mountain. “The purchase of the Hillside Inn is a critical step in meeting the needs of staffing in the future. We are committed to continuing to look for innovative ways to support our employees in finding housing throughout the community.”
