“Classic Vermont--Rustic comfort”
Reviewed October 18, 2011

We attended a meeting at the Mountain Top Inn, Chittenden, and couldn't have been more impressed! Front desk help was instant and accurate with every request -- views from all rooms as well as decor quite impressive--food service and entertainment/activities delightful! Don't forget if you are there in the summer, and fit enough to hike a mile uphill after the trek down, to walk the little road to the lake, it's simply stunning! If you love to get out and see the sights, nearby shopping, history, nature and food experiences are numerous, however, it's difficult to think of leaving the comfort of the inn and its rustic setting once ensconced. Honestly the most pleasant setting and professional service we've experienced in 16 years of consecutive meetings! (NOTE: we rate the "fitness center" category excellent even though the "fitness center" consists of trails for hiking and horseback riding, a lake for canoe trips and swimming, a tennis and fitness courts, and indoor Zumba classes. It's just the kind of fitness in fresh air that will keep one truly healthy)

Room Tip: We were there with 16 other couples/individuals and they all were impressed

We are always pleased to know that when someone travels to The Mountain Top Inn & Resort for a meeting, they are able to combine business and pleasure. Certainly your review reflects that you succeeded in doing this during you visit in July. Thank you so much for sharing your experience and your creative thoughts regarding our “fitness center”. That is a wonderful tribute to our staff knowing we are #1 for you after 16 years of meetings. Hopefully you will have the chance to return for a completely relaxing and fun stay with us in Vermont.

If you are looking for the cozy feeling of an inn, this is the perfect retreat for you! Top notch food prepared with care can be enjoyed in causal clothing from your day spend outdoors. A wide range of outdoor activities include hiking, free kyaking, horseback riding, cross country sking, sleigh rides and much more. The bed, linens, and service are excellent. The rooms that face the mountains offer spectacular scenery, but there is no elevator service. The trip to the third floor is a steep 30 steps. This can be difficult with bags, children, or a bad knee. Be sure to ask the floor level of your room becasue a "2" does not necessarily mean the second floor.

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay with us. It is rewarding to know that we have created the sort of ambiance that a “classic New England inn” is known for with our travelers. As such, being an historic inn we do have the challenge of no elevator and appreciate your tip to future guests regarding how the rooms are situated in the Lodge. We always have a member of our staff available to assist with the trip to the 3rd floor. When you return to see us, be sure to request a room on the lobby level if that is your preference.

We stayed in the main inn for three nights at the beginning of the foliage season. We checked in after the sun went down but we were immediately impressed with the location and how beautiful the place was. We had great service when checking in and were happy with the room that was provided. The room was clean and spacious.

When we woke the next morning we were difinitely amazed at how spectacular the view was. Our stay there was a great time and we had a nice interaction with the staff. They were always friendly and helpful when it came to suggesting things to do in the area. They also washed a load of clothes for us when we inquired about a laundry facility so I was impressed with that. Breakfast was good and their steak was amazing for dinner.

We did a horseback ride, pontoon boat ride, and clay pigeon shooting with Brian. He was easy to talk to and made us feel comfortable.

The resort is not the cheapest place to stay but you get what you pay for. The views and the service exceeded my expectations and I would recommend this to anyone visiting the area.

The Mountain Top Inn is an all around wonderful resort. My family and I recently spent a weekend in one of the chalet homes, which was absolutely beautiful. The views over the Chittenden Resevoir and Green Mountains are spectacular. The chalet was very well kept. We enjoyed a fabulous dinner in the dining room as well as a hearty VT brunch on Sunday morning before leaving. The staff throughout the resort was all very welcoming and accomodating. We also spent an afternoon horseback riding through the resorts numerous, well-kept trails. This place truly makes you appreciate the beautiful state of Vermont. I would recommend this place for a romantic weekend with your spouse or a fun, activity filled weekend with your friends and family.

I've been to the Mtn Top Resort for several winter Girl's Weekends in the past 5 years and have nothing but wonderful memories of my time spent cross country skiing, snowshoeing and catching up with old friends in the hot tub after a day spent in the fresh VT air. The rental homes are fabulous and I always leave feeling pampered and rejuvenated! The food, accommodations and location are spectacular and I highly recommend it for outdoor enthusists!

Stayed at the Mountain top for a long weekend in May of 2011 with my wife and had an all around great time. We took advantage of the lake by going out on the kayaks and took a pontoon boat ride. The views were amazing and our room was spectacular, we stayed in one of the suites called Highmeadow. We ate dinner at the mountain top both nights, not only the food but the service was outstanding. We were able to sit out on the patio at night by the fire pit, which my wife really enjoyed. I would highly recommend this resort and I will be returning next year for another long weekend!
