I am not actually staying there but it seems like a nice place. In the evenings it can be quite cool and would probably be ok without ac

How are the rooms in the Condominium?  clean?   comfortable?  I would like to go from August 30th to September 4th.  Should I take the condo even though it has no a/c?  any decent attractions there or am I going to sit like a "klutz" in the hotel?
I was there around that time  2 years ago with their supplied fan it was OK although I'm sure some people would find it uncomfortable.

As far as attractions go there are some and you definitely won't have to sit and Klutz during that duration especially that you have a shabbos there.

as mentioned up thread they provide a Concierge to help you plan your attractions

Thinking of staying at the Killington Grand Resort for Shabbos would Vermont Menucha be okay with me davening in their shul? according to google maps it's a 6 min walk although it may be a steep hill to climb?!)
Also does anyone know the hashgucha on their Shabbos food should I decide to order there?
