Unexpected stop for lunch
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The views are spectacular and the interior decor has an elegant but rustic vibe. The Maple BBCue wings are heaven and the Tavern Burger was 5 stars! What a great relaxing lunch with family! I would definitely return here again one day.

Beautiful view

We stayed here on a Monday night in the off season so it was not busy at all. The hotel is beautiful with mountain and lake views. The inn is nicely decorated with wood and nice furnishings. The room was nice with 2 beds, one was a little squeaky & bouncy, but the bathroom and shower were a good size with a large closet. We ate dinner in the tavern and had the best ceasar salad eve. The pad thai was not good, it was more sweet than traditional pad thai and would not recommend it. My husband got a burger with bacon jam and said it was one of the best burgers he has ever had. The staff were pleasant and the woman at breakfast was very sweet, engaging and was attentive to our needs. Breakfast was good, had a mix of hot and cold options, it was a nice variety. We use the outdoor hot tub which was nice & had a great view of the mountains. The barn where the spa is seems brand new with a nice bathroom to get changed in. I used the sauna as well and the spa staff were very nice. We also went to see the horses and the staff offered us carrots to feed the horses which was extra special for our son. As we went to see the horses, the care taker was taking 2 horses out into the pasture and talked to us for about 15-20 min about the horses which added a special touch to our visit. We had a wonderful time and recommend it for folks looking to relax and have amazing mountain views. We didnt go down to the lake as it was mud season and didnt want to walk or drive in the mud.

Absolutely Amazing!!

If you want a relaxing break away from it all in a beautiful location with wonderful scenery, then this has it all. We stayed at the resort for a long weekend and rented guest house Grand Vista. The house was absolutely beautiful!! I did find it strange having a pool table in the downstairs king room but hey each to their own. The furnishings were lovely and the views from the living room were amazing. The wood burning fireplace was just lovely and relaxing and I love the fact it was all set up for us ready to go when we arrived. We ate at the tavern one evening and the food was incredibly good. The staff at the resort are very professional and the service was really good. This truly is a wonderful place and I hope I get the chance to go back.

Fabulous views...lovely!

The location is quite remote, we were sorry we couldn't have stayed longer. It's a lovely place. The hotel was busy with a rather gorgeous wedding...but although the staff were evidently busy, we still received a great welcome and service.
Unfortunately we had one of the smaller rooms at the front of the hotel, but it was still beautiful. Lovely comfortable room, bathroom and relaxing public areas and lounges.
The restaurant was excellent, both for the evening meal and breakfast.

I visited the Mountain Top resort with two friends for a cross country skiing adventure. The trails were excellent and well groomed and the staff were very helpful and absolutely delightful. All of the amenities were excellent. We had a terrific time and I recommend this resort without qualification to anyone seeking an outdoor adventure.
