“Perfect.”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

I brought my husband here to celebrate his birthday. I think we uttered the word 'perfect' at least 1,000 times during our 3 day/2 night stay. :) We loved everything about our stay. The food was great, the snowshoeing was terrific and everyone on the staff was so kind and accomodating. Our room was very nice with a beautiful view. We loved having use of so many trails to snowshoe and explore. The sledding hill isn't just for kids - we had a ball zipping down it (walking back up made us realize we aren't kids anymore, though! Haha) It was exactly the trip we needed to recharge our batteries and to celebrate his big day. Rare is a place that we both say we want to return to before we've even left, but we will be back next year. Truly a beautiful, charming place to enjoy, refresh and renew!

Stayed in killington at a condo and wanted something I could do with my 3 year old and 6 year old. Found sleigh rides and sledding at mountain top inn. Wow! It was awesome and free! Great sledding hill. Resort seemed to have lots of fun activities am looking forward to returning! My kids loved the sleigh ride too. Ate at the tavern and service and food were great.

We are pleased you came to see us while you were staying at a condo at Killington. Visitors staying at area resorts and condos are pleasantly surprised to learn that use of the sledding hill is complimentary if they purchase a horse drawn sleigh ride and dine with us. Thank you for taking the time to include The Mountain Top Inn & Resort with your posted reviews.
Hope to see you again soon!

Stayed one night March 5th 2014. We where able to stay in a newly renovated cabin. The room had a fireplace and king bed and bathroom (nice shower). It also had a kitchenette but a table and chairs were missing. It also lacked a place to dry our wet ski outfits. Restaurant dinner service could use some improvement.

The highlight of our stay was the X-country skiing for 2 days. The trails were wonderful. The trail grooming was outstanding. Miles of rolling trails for all levels and great views. We hope that they maintain this level of trail conditions all season. We think it is a x-country skiing destination. We will be back. We live in Vermont and ski outside our home but this was a real treat.

Room Tip: Go for the cabins.

We appreciate your positive comments regarding your recent stay with us and in particular our Nordic ski trail system. As you noted, the cabins are brand new and still waiting for some of the furnishings. Your suggestion about a place to dry wet clothing has been noted; something we can easily remedy. I am sorry to hear that you had service issues at dinner; your comment has been shared with our Food & Beverage Director for follow up with her staff.
We hope you'll come back again to enjoy the resort; especially during the Nordic Ski season.
Best regards,

We recently spent five fabulous days at the Mountain Top Inn. Not fancy, but perfectly wonderful in every way!
Nordic Skiers will be hard pressed to find a better classic ski trails in terms of the variety of difficulty levels, length and scenery.
Beautiful views from the windows of our room at this relatively small, and very cozy inn--loved watching the kids (and some parents) go sledding down the big hill in front of our room!
On-site tavern and dining room share a common menu but each has a slightly different atmosphere. We opted for the tavern each night, although we had originally thought we'd go into town some nights for a change of pace. The menu had such a variety of delicious foods that we ultimately stayed and didn't venture out in the cold and dark, down the winding road to town! Staff in the tavern were absolutely some of the best anywhere--so friendly and accommodating. Special mention to the bar tender and the novel drinks on the cocktail menu. Cider never tasted so good!!
Our stay covered the last few days of the Olympics and we were thrilled to be able to watch our Canadian teams on the large screen TVs in the tavern, munching and drinking as we went.
Totally awesome place and one which we will likely return to next winter...and the next...and the next...

Room Tip: Ask to face the mountains, not the parking lot. Be careful to note the size and configuration of yo...

My husband and I have a place close to the Mountain Top Inn, but we still like to stay there once or twice a year. It is one of the most amazing resorts that i have been to. The staff is attentive and extremely gratious. We enjoy the views, the snowmobile trails and the kayaking in the summer. Mountain Top offers so many wonderful amenities. We always like to pass the word along to other travelers in the hope of them being able to experience such a great place.

Room Tip: Ask!! We like the rooms that face the lake.

Thank you Mountain Top staff for such an incredible weekend! Seriously, thank you for helping me surprise my fiancé with a proposal on your horse drawn sleigh ride. To top it off, the Valentines Day wine paired dinner was delicious. The live music, outdoor hot tub, excellent skiing conditions and wonderful customer service made this weekend one we will never forget. You will certainly see us again!

We stayed at the hotel for a wedding in September. The rooms were dated and the décor was just OK, I know they are trying to have a rustic feel but our room just felt old. We were hoping that the rooms would be a little nicer for the price of almost $200 dollars a night. The main common areas of the hotel were nice and had terrific views. The restaurant was decent but nothing spectacular. Overall we felt the hotel was not worth the price and would probably not stay here again

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay back in September. We always strive to be considered well above an average hotel; clearly we fell short of that goal. During the slow season in November we completed our plans for upgrading and updating the furnishings in our guestrooms; if you change your mind about returning (and we hope you will) we are certain that your stay will be much more to your liking.
