Our Story

The Viking Motel has been owned and operated by the Spiesicke family for over 40 years. Originally built by professional football player Jim Kershaw in the early 1960’s, the motel was first called “Longjims.”  Kershaw sold the Wilmington, VT property to the Olson Family who renamed it The Viking Motel.  The Spiesicke family bought the motel in 1978 and has since enjoyed welcoming costumers from all over the world to this area which they love so much.

The Viking Motel, Wilmington VT - Hans and Denise

Like so many businesses and homes in Wilmington, VT and the Mount Snow Valley, the Viking Motel was hit hard by Tropical Storm Irene in 2011.  The storm, which flooded the town of Wilmington, VT and much of the Deerfield Valley, wiped out the homes, businesses and the livelihoods of dozens of people in the area.  The Viking Motel is grateful to have remained open since the storm and we owe much gratitude for all the local support we have received.

Hans and Denise are grateful to be able to continue to offer the best of affordable lodging near Mount Snow and look forward to welcoming you to the area.​
