We had heard good things about the new Pump House water park and just wanted to give it a try. We stayed only 1 night but were allowed to enjoyed the water park on the day of our arrival and the day after. We stayed in a regular room at Hotel Jay which is the best facility at the resort. The hotel is connected to the Pump house and is just across from the ice skating arena. The room is large and equipped like a studio-apartment with a dinning table, kitchen appliances (stove, small fridge, toaster and coffee maker), dinnerware, etc. It also had a beautiful fireplace. The room has a convenient open closet with many hooks and hangers. Another big plus of hotel Jay is their room key system. The hotel does not use magnetised card, instead it provides all guests with a bracelet to unlock your door and it serves as your day pass for the water park.
We paid less than $ 200 for 2 adults and 2 children for our 1 night stay that included the water park for 2 days. We also received a coupon booklet as a bonus. Those coupons booklet usually don’t have much value, but not in this case. We received a $ 10 gift card which we use for the family arcade, on top the $ 6 arcade card included in the booklet and the helmet and skates rentals for the Ice Haus. We booked the hotel through Jay Peak's web site which entitled us to get a $ 25 gift card upon our arrival which we used for dinner.
There are a few things Jay could improve upon. The 11 o'clock check-out time is too early. The rooms don't have a directory and the information provided upon check in is minimal. You are sort of by yourself to figure out everything the resort has to offer and that's plenty! Hallways are also noisy.
This short break was a great family gateway. We got way more value than expected. We are looking forward to going back.
