Another fabulous weekend
Reviewed 4 days ago

Our group enjoyed another fabulous weekend at Mountain Top! We experienced top notch service in the restaurant and recommend the grilled tuna dinner and cocktails. The breakfast buffet was varied and delicious. We took scenic walks around the resort, mountain biked on the many trails in the woods and paddled around All the staff was friendly and accomodating. The scenic view of the lake and mountains is pure and peaceful.

Fabulous amenities and even better food!

Had a wonderful stay this past weekend with a group of women friends. Everything from check-in, to accommodations (they have many different types of houses to rent or typical inn rooms), to available activities, to the friendly service, to the view and most especially the food was just perfect.

Best View In Vermont!
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The moment we walked into the registration area, I walked right past the front desk and directly to the huge windows overlooking the gorgeous mountain view. The rustic beams, furniture and decor complimented the country setting.

The hotel staff was very helpful in offering information on local hiking, so we followed their advice and took a beautiful stroll down to the beach. Apparently, there is an old town that has been submerged under the water after it was flooded. Some areas are over 80ft deep!

Wandering through the halls, there are several historic photos and news articles decorating the walls. Dwight D. Eisenhower and Jennifer Aniston are a few people that have stayed here in the past.

There is a restaurant and tavern located on the property, both serving excellent food options with an amazing view. My husband really enjoyed his steak and I had the lobster ravioli, which made my eyes roll into the back of my head lol.

Breakfast was just as delicious. Being a visitor to Vermont, I had to try the blueberry pancakes with Vermont maple syrup. Every single thing was delcious. From beginning to end, we really enjoyed our lovely stay here.

Clean, nice furnishings, captive audience
Reviewed 2 months ago

The Mountain Top Inn is a nice slightly above average facility. It is very clean and comfortable but I was left with the impression that the staff, though cordial were not going the extra mile to please their clientele. The food selection on the menu is very limited. Upon completion of our stay I felt that the management organization running this facility was cutting corners. They need to encourage the staff to be a little more animated when serving customers. I also felt that there was a lack of attention to detail. They need to do better especially when you look at the prices they charge.

Picturesque Resort
Reviewed 2 months ago

This is a beautiful resort with picturesque views all around. The staff was polite, helpful, and very competent. Our room was spacious and clean and had views overlooking the lake. Their lobby has a comfortable sitting room with ample seating and beautiful views. This is a popular wedding destination, although that was not our purpose for visiting. The complimentary breakfast is AMAZING! I ordered the raspberry and chocolate chip pancakes and my wife ordered the meat omelette--both were amazing. We love this chef. Their list of amenities is long--visit there website for a full list. We will surely visit again. I would definitely recommend them to a friend.
