I have been a season pass holder at Wisp for close to ten years. Two years back, new ownership took over. Their focus is on improving the hotel and cosmetics. That's nice, but it also means that mountain maintenance is almost zero. They have maintained dangerous conditions and will be closing in February when Whitetail and others remain open (with...

Dear TheB20850, Thank you for your review of Wisp Resort. We value your opinion and we also value facts. The facts are: Wisp Resort went under new ownership in December 2012. Wisp Resort does not own the hotel therefore has not funded the hotel renovations or improvements. We take the safety of our guests very seriously so we would like...

Have to say - do some research on prices. Booked to hotel - Yep. Really did not think about the cost for a ski package for three plus a ticket for me. Yes - I am the one that did not look before I leaped. So what was going to be a weekend of skiing came up to be just...

Decided to go to the resort for the first time during the holiday weekend. We arrived Saturday to find out that by 1PM, tubing passes were sold out for the rest of the night, however, we were able to purchase some for the following day. A new year's eve party with a DJ was advertised, but it was more for...

There is a nice indoor pool and restaurant and pub in-house. There are also many good places to eat close by. We went again and used their sledding slope during Christmas weekend. It was a lot more fun then.

We visited Wisp this past weekend December 9-11. While there was plenty snow on the ground there was nothing to do. Everything was closed other than the Mountain Coaster and ice skating. That was fun but after that we literally had nothing else to do. I was told over the phone other activities would be open but nothing was.

Nicole, Thank you for your visit with us last weekend. I apologize you were not aware all of our activities were not open. The weather finally cooperated on Thursday, December 8th and we were able to start making snow. While I'm sure it looked like there was a lot of snow here over the weekend, it was just the beginning...

Our family had a great time at this hotel. This hotel is not a plush, high end establishment and it does not pretend to be. This hotel reflects the outdoor loving community that it is located in. You can visit beautiful local state parks, swim in the huge hotel pool, eat at some amazing local eateries and play games in...

We booked a standard queen room last minute as a stopover on a long drive. The first room we checked into was horrible...it looked like a dark basement apartment with cinder block, bad plaster, and ridiculously dated furnishings. We headed back to the front desk and asked if there were any rooms that were more updated and were told we...

I stayed at Wisp for a family wedding; I was horrified when the bedroom in the king suite I reserved didn't have a window in it. That's not a bedroom, it's a closet, and potentially dangerous in the event of a fire. The next 4 suites the staff showed me, also didn't have windows in the bedrooms. Finally, the staff...

Spent two nights here in October which is, I guess, their in between season. Right from the start I noticed they did not have automatic doors to the lobby/front desk area from the parking lot. Between the luggage and the baby stroller, managing the double set of doors to leave and come in was a hassle. The pool area looked...

Thank you for taking time to review our property. I am sorry for the trouble you had during your visit. We are hard at work renovating several areas of our hotel. We are aware of how hard it is to check-in through those doors. That area was just recently added. We will be ordering automatic doors to aide in your...

I booked an expensive room which delivered on amenities and was quite clean. Staff were all courteous and professional. Nothing stands out as being excellent, but the basics were well done. I'll stay there again when in the area.
