“Best choice for Vermont experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

This Inn and resort has pretty well everything you can ask for during all four seasons. A recent visit (last week of April) was too late for skiing and too early for horse back riding or pool but the quiet and serene atmosphere coupled with a warm welcoming feeling and professional staff made for a wonderful stay. Due to a major renovation and beautification project at the inn building, which is soon coming to an end, we were upgraded from a booked inn room to a free standing villa complete with 3 bedrooms, wood burning fire place and jacuzzi tub in one of the 2 bathrooms. Handled professionally and courteously at check-in, our initial disappointment of having to stay in a building undergoing construction noise was quickly assuaged by our new exquisite accommodations. Excellent WiFi at no charge in the Inn as well as in the villas is a nice feature. Dinner in the Tavern was a culinary experience, the limited menu allowed the chef to shine in the entrees chosen; the wine list is extensive and tends to be pricey; it surprisingly lacks any selection of French wines but lists many Californian and Pacific Northwest wines. The included breakfast was equally sumptuous with daily special omelets and good tasting coffee! For light sleepers the totally quiet nights surrounding the inn promise a good night's rest! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return whenever we can.

Last August, I was struggling to find a place for my husband and I to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary. I had just returned from a 2 week seven country European tour and preferred something a little low key. After much research, I was introduced to The MTI. Of course, I immediately referred to the traveler's bible (Trip Advisor) and was pretty impressed by the comments of past guests. Therefore, we settled on MTI.

Upon our arrival, we were blown away by the view. The lush green grass, the beautiful mountains, and the peaceful lake set the atmosphere for the serenity that we both needed. Later in the day, we decided to walk down to the lake to take in the view up close and personal. As we started to make the trek, we didn't have to walk too far because the GM Khele gave us a lift. Very kind and thoughtful!

I could go on forever about everything. The food, accommodations, service, and activities all exceeded our expectations. My husband and I left marking MTI as "our place". So, when the opportunity presented itself for us to return we did just that. We completed our second stay last Thursday-4/17.

Although there were no
activities, we enjoyed the tranquility. There was no lush vegetation and the lake was like a barren field, but the scene was still amazing. Being able to access beautiful views no matter where we were was priceless.

During our stay, MTI was undergoing extensive renovations. As a result, we were awaken by the construction the first morning of our stay. Later in the day, my husband encountered GM Khele and briefly mentioned the disturbance. Khele was very apologetic as he was unaware that the noise could be heard in the guest rooms. He immediately offered to move us away from the noise. The upgrade was amazing! He offered to help us move and provided nothing but first class service. He even remembered us from the summer!

Since our return, my hubby and I cannot stop talking about how much we needed MTI in order to de-stress and refuel.

MTI is truly a gem in VT. We are grateful to the staff for your hospitality and for always making our stay an enjoyable one. We are looking forward to seeing you soon.

I am not one to write reviews, but after our fourth stay at the inn, I finally had to give it the credit that it's due. Each time we have stayed the staff (from front desk, to house keeping, to the tavern staff) has gone above and beyond to meet our expectations. The rooms are exquisite and the views are spectacular. I highly recommend!!

I went with a group of friends the last weekend of March. We stayed in a beautiful home, dined at the Inn, scrumptous, skied, went sledding, relaxed a tad by the outdoor fire and the list goes on and on. We are looking forward to another awesome time at Mt. Top.

My wife and I needed to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life, and returned to Vermont, a perfect location to do so. This was our first stay at the MountainTop Inn. We were greeted by a friendly, knowlegeable staff that was more than eager to please with bag assistance, room upgrades, and info on the local scene. Room was clean, well appointed, and offered spectacular views. Far enough off the beaten track to give you the solitude you want to decompress, close enough to make short trips into town and the surrounding countryside to explore shops, towns, breweries ad vineyards. A great deal of activities were also on site, sledding, cross country, etc. We will return

If you are a nordic skier and thinking about getting away for a skiing vacation, you can't beat the Mt Top Inn and Resort. The cross country skiing is superb with over 50 kms of trails to suit every ability. Whether you are a elite athlete or a beginner skier, you can choose from wide trails with sweeping views of the surrounding mountains to the more intimate trails that wind through the expanse of the Green Mountain National Forest land. We had a beautiful room overlooking the Chittenden Reservoir and the surrounding mountains. The staff was very friendly and made you feel right at home. We had a delicious dinner in the tavern located within the Inn and enjoyed the many choices of food at the breakfast buffet in the dining room the following morning. We only stayed one night and skied about 30 kms per day so we didn't have time to try the horse drawn sleigh ride or a snowmobile tour.

This was a 3 day/2 night Mom/Daughter get away! We read good reviews so thought this would be a nice place. They were wrong...this is a FABULOUS to stay!! The staff is friendly and like family. The rooms were beautiful, spacious and comfortable! And the food...breakfast was definitely like Mom was making it and dinner was such comfort food! The local ingredients added to the wonderful taste at both meals!!
The property had so much to offer!! We visited in 03/18-3/20. The hot tub was incredible, the trails for cross country and snow shoe were so well taken care of and amazing! My daughter and I enjoyed the backgammon game as well as the tea/coffee/hot cider offered 3-5pm! We wanted to enjoy the yoga classes and the spa but didn't have the time!
Relaxing at the bar, enjoying finger food as we were talking to the other guest was so much fun! The staff had a wonderful way of making everyone feel like old time friends!
We look forward to returning!!

Room Tip: All rooms are GREAT!! bring your own pillows!!
