Just got back from a trip to Chittenden and the husband and I stayed at the Fox Creek Inn for an evening. We booked one night there and one night at the near by Mountain Top Inn. I am still kicking myself for not staying both nights at the Fox Creek Inn.
#1: The service is amazing. We were served home baked cookies and warm drinks right off the bat. The fire was roaring and everything felt clean, homey and sweet. The proprietor Susan is a GEM. I left my burberry coat there (had a heart attack when I figured it out) only to find that she had already delivered it to our hotel and it was waiting at the front desk! Now that is great customer service.
#2: There's a bar! She has a great wine list, which is crucial because lets face it, Vermont is pretty rural and you gotta trek into town to get a drink otherwise. So you can come home from a long hike or ski session and grab a bottle of wine to relax to.
#3 Price. The Mountain Top Inn was almost double the price and so not worth the cost. Its a lovely place, and we only stayed there because it was the wedding venue. But unless you are thinking of getting completely trashed at the wedding, just stay here and enjoy a nicer, quieter room at a way better value.
Highly recommend it here and would definitely go back if I have to visit the area again.
