If you'll be looking to stay south of the Gaps ride, your best bet may be in the Killington area, intersection of Rte 100 and Rte 4. There isn't much between there and Rochester. You can get a decent room in Killington in the warm (no snow) season for only one arm or a leg. ;-) Cheaper places are available over in Rutland.
That's a lot of crappy road riding from LI for just a single day of fun. Might want to stretch your time in VT out if you can.
