We know Topnotch very well as during the years 2002 through 2008 we spent many family vacations there both in the winter and the summer. Our last visit was 2008. My husband and I just recently returned and spent a week end there and I have a mixed review of the resort which has new owners since we last stayed... More

Topnotch is a beautiful resort. Wonderful outdoor pools and great indoor pool too. The scenery is gorgeous! Pricey but very, very relaxing atmosphere. We have stayed there three times so far-in the summer. It must be wonderful in the winter with the outdoor firepit. Would go again!

I'm one of those people who VERY rarely writes a review. In this case, my review is a great one. Upon arriving at Topnotch, Lucinda was extremely helpful in checking us in and sharing bits of information about the resort and area.

I have been going to Topnotch for my whole life. From après ski and cookie hour to swimming in that BEAUTIFUL pool, I've seen in all shapes and forms. I have to say, it came as quite of a shock to me when the hotel changed completely. Not for the worse or for the better. It has some amazing characteristics... More

My family and I spent two very relaxing nights at the Topnotch Resort while we were in Stowe. We could not have been happier with our decision to stay here.

This was our second time staying here and we were really looking forward to the quiet, relaxing weekend away. Sorry to say, we won't be back. If you are a couple looking for a getaway place, don't go here. We love kids, but it looked like Disney at times; kids everywhere! They do have two pools...a family pool and adult... More

We just returned from Topnotch, spending three nights there for our 41st wedding anniversary. I selected Topnotch because it was dog friendly. I'll return because they were extremely nice to two-legged folk as well! ALL the staff stands out for being friendly, helpful and professional.

We had a great time at Top Notch, where we stayed for 3 nights with our kids- I would not recommend the place for couples without kids though, as it can get really noisy by the swimming pool and the quiet pool is too close to be really quiet. Diner is good though probably not as high end as you... More
