Fantastic service in picturesque setting
Reviewed 1 week ago

This is the first time I have stayed here & we will be back. In the winter, there was a huge hill for sliding, ice skating, but unfortunately there weren’t many trails open for cross country skiing. The food at the restaurant was great & the service was fantastic.

Best man in a Vermont Winter Wedding
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Recently was a part of a wedding in February 2019 at Mountain Top. My biggest regret is that we didn't stay longer. We rented a cabin (Four Pines) and comfortably split it between four couples. Each couple had their own bathroom and it was always stocked with towels. Full kitchen and multiple hangout locations. The shuttle was able to take us from house to house or house to lodge and the driver was very friendly. Food at the lodge was excellent and the barn was the perfect setting with a beautiful view. Also would like the mention that the officiant for the ceremony was perfect. Brought tears to our eyes and was concise. Would highly recommend him. Lots of activities on premise and close to many ski resorts. We would definitely come back in any season

We highly recommend Mountain Top Inn & Resort to anyone getting married or just looking to get away. We have been there for both. We booked a cabin and guest house for our family during our wedding weekend and it was like we had our own private mountain top place. The flowers by Meadows Edge were beautiful. The Salon hooked me and my girls up! Cassie was so helpful throughout the process and the food was amazing! The grounds are so peaceful. You can navigate the trails in all directions. It’s a perfect getaway any season!
Accommodating, friendly staff.

Winter Wedding/Family Holiday
Reviewed 1 month ago

We hosted a destination wedding/family vacation for a week in December 2018 at Mountain Top. We had an amazing time and would highly recommend Mountain Top both for vacation and for a wedding.
We planned the wedding from Texas with only one prior visit to Mountain Top. The staff were very accommodating and I felt very comfortable with the process and our communication. Cassie made sure everything ran smoothly on the day of the wedding and the Mountain Top staff were very quick to address any concerns we might've had for our guests. They picked up guests, ran items back and forth between houses and the event space, and were very dedicated to making sure everything went perfectly. Guests in our party stayed in the lodge, in the houses, and in the cabins and everyone enjoyed their time and the activities offered. Our guests were so impressed with the food at the wedding, too!
As for our stay, we really enjoyed the houses on property. They were a good way to have the family all together, but each have privacy. The resort is small enough, too, that you never feel overcrowded with a bunch of other people.
We really enjoyed ourselves and would go back in a heartbeat. Maybe summer next time!

Perfect Winter Getaway
Reviewed 1 month ago

I had a great one-night winter getaway at Mountain Top and it was just what I needed. The staff was extremely friendly and professional. I stayed in Ike's View, which had an amazing view overlooking the Green Mountains. I happened to stay over on burger night in the Tavern, which was especially tasty. The best part? You get the serenity of the Green Mountains with Vermont's largest ski resort just a short drive away.
