Stayed here recently for a wedding. Overall, I would say this place is a bit rustic--- great if you're planning an outdoorsy weekend and want a step above camping, but not nice enough to warrant $200+ hotel rooms. No sense of customer service. When I made my reservation, we were promised a second floor room to have a better lake... More

I recently visited for a trail ride and also played some disc golf. The trail ride, led by Marisa, was excellent. Staff seemed very skilled at judging your riding level and acting accordingly. Got a nice look at the property from horseback. Trails were wooded and not just flat roads, which makes for a really nice ride. All equipment was... More

We stayed at the Fox Hollow cottage just up the road from the Inn and it was beautiful. The space was large, clean, comfortable, and felt very much like a log cabin. The view from out front door was stunning--a panorama of the mountains and the reservoir. We visited the equestrian center and also participated in clay pigeon shooting. The... More

We and our children and grandchildren, making a party of eight, spent five days at Mountain Top. We received unfailingly excellent and cordial service, extremely comfortable lodging with every conceivable amenity, tremendously entertaining activities of every description, etc, etc,etc. Everyone agreed it was the best ever.

I have always wanted to go to a "riding camp" for adults. I searched and searched and found the Equestrian Center at the Mountain Top Inn and Resort. Upon arriving at the equestrian center, I was warmly greeted by Arden, my instructor and trainer for 5 days. Arden, a 20 yr. old college sophomore has the maturity of someone much... More

We have stayed here twice in the winter and once in the summer (this past week). The vacation rental homes are all you could ever hope for - very nicely done with beautiful furnishings and spectacular views. The breakfast (included) is a hot buffet filled with blueberry pancakes, strata, French toast and more. The stone patio overlooking the jaw-dropping view... More

We visited the resort for dinner after visiting Leffert's Pond in hopes of seeing moose. We were able to recover our good humor after an excellent dinner and spectacular service. We saw why so many brides choose the inn for ceremony and celebration.
