Reviewed March 13, 2012

What a beautiful view! The drive is worth it!

The Mountain Top Inn and Resort is located at the top of a mountain, with views of peaks around the area, and access to all sorts of winter sports and summer fun! Located close to a lake, I was foaming at the mouth for the summer to get there, so I could do some fun swimming in some fresh water.

I stayed with a wedding party in chalet divided into three floors, with multiple beds, rooms, and little coves to hide in. The construction and decor was elegant, the kitchen had a chef's set up. The bed's were soft and comfortable, and the entertainment was geared towards all levels! They even had little foam dart guns for the young at heart!

The food at the restaurant was reasonably priced, but tasty. Bring your own food because the closest grocery store is in Rutland, and the local country store offers a limited, but convenient, selection. Rutland is a little bit of a drive away, but I would recommend taking route 4 to the Woodstock Farmer's Market in Woodstock, the food is fresh, and Vermont pure, so all of it is delicious.

This place is for the romantic couples who are retired, and the adventurous outdoorsperson who has a hankering for some wilderness. I saw cross country skiers gliding across fresh trails at night, and smiling couples in the restaurant in the morning.

My advice? Check it out.

My husband, daughter (9) and myself stayed here for a few nights to go skiing. We had a room on the first floor (115) with two double beds.

The room itself was fine.
Pros-It had a beautiful view, great bathroom, ample seating and storage, flat screen TV and the heat worked well.
Cons- The beds were very soft and the headboards were very squeaky any time anyone moved. This room was LOUD in the morning (not necessarily the fault of the hotel-more the guests who think that because they are up at 6 AM, everyone else should be)

The staff were all fantastic. Very friendly and helpful, even going as far as to get us a bourbon the night we arrived after the bar had closed!
The food was very good. We had dinner there twice and both meals were very good. The breakfast buffet was also very good. There were plenty of choices (scrambled eggs, strata, waffles or french toast, cereals, etc). The only thing was the pastries seemed a bit blah in comparison to the other options.
We loved the bar. They had a great selection of wines, beers and liquors. The pool table was fun. They had a musician there one night that was fantastic!
One evening they brought in a magician to entertain the guests, which our daughter enjoyed. The sledding hill is craaaazzzzyyy fun!
The evening cookies and cider were also nice touches.
I very much enjoyed our stay but would stay again next time only if we chose a different style room in a different location in the inn.

Room Tip: The first floor hall is extremely LOUD in the morning!

Thank you for taking the time to write a very detailed review, with mostly “pros” and a few “cons”. We really appreciate your feedback and we are pleased to learn that you plan to return. Needless to say we are never satisfied when a guest is not 100% happy with their stay; and we have shared your comments with our staff so we can make every effort to improve in the areas where we need to do so. We look forward to seeing you again at the Resort!

I enjoyed a two-night February stay at this cozy, charming, and luxuriously comfortable resort. It was my first visit and I was more than pleasantly surprised. It is a welcomed oasis, away from the traffic, noise, and crowds of urban D.C. and into the peaceful, beautiful, and serene outdoors. I came by myself (after visiting relatives in nearby Rutland) and although it seemed that there were only family groups or couples as guests, I found it very suitable for a single. I stayed in the gorgeous Lago Vista suite--the view was incredible! The bathroom reminded me of an Italian villa--beautifully designed and crafted. I was also so impressed with the genuinely friendly, efficient, and accommodating staff both in the lodge and the ski center. These people seem like they really enjoy their work. The bartender and hostess were especially cool. This is a stress-free place, casually elegant, and the food is great! I highly recommend this unique, one-of-a kind property.

Our family just returned from the Mountain Top Inn, and we had a wonderful time. The property is quite lovely. Generous common rooms with comfortable chairs to have a drink or play a board game, or even talk to your spouse! Lovely, and comfortable rooms. We were so pleased with the up to date bathroom and fresh decorations in the rooms! The staff was so accommodating, making so many extra efforts on our behalf. I look forward to returning soon.

We stayed at "The Jewel" house, which is part of the resort. It is almost impossible to describe how wonderful was this house. Although you could tell by the pictures that it looked great, we were impressed when we first saw it. The furniture and appliances are top quality. Staff is fast and friendly.
Hope to be back there. Check the pictures!

We stayed one night here. the staff were amazing and attentive. the tavern and restaurant cozy and warm. offered sledding a realy plus. there is a nordic ski (xc ski) walking distance where you can rent skis. location is quiet, away from it all. good place to unwind.

note: while this is a wonderful property it lacks some "resort" amenities; namely no fitness center and part time spa. there is a outodoor pool.

Room Tip: all rooms in process of being updated. Suite has an amazing jacuzzi tub and shower.
