The Mountain Top Inn is a fine lodge. Note that if you're skiing though you likely want to find a spot closer to the ski resorts. Most of this lodge seems to focused on weddings and events. The sauna is part of the spa closes at 2pm daily so don't plan for an after ski sauna. Also the resort fees seem a bit much when most resort activities are closed Sunday - Wednesday. Otherwise pleasant stay and the resort staff were friendly and helpful, just limited in options.

Manager horrible
My husband ,sister and I dropped off my son at college in Vermont. We wanted to mini vacation at this resort . I called to get a 2 bedroom suite . They recommended the suite we booked it . When we arrived the main hotel has beautiful views . We were told to go to our room which was 3 min drive away. I paid double the price of a room at the main hotel. The suite was part of half of the house. No view and a small spiral staircase. My husband happened to sprain his ankle earlier in the week . I went to the front desk to get another room . I even asked for a single room with two beds and would pay the price and no refund if it was less. They gave us the other half of the house which had more stairs and two twin beds on first floor. I went back to ask if they could give us a single room w 2 Queen beds . But because of a wedding we could not get it .also we could not use tge pool or jacuzzi because of the wedding. I then said we will have dinner then check out and drive home . We had driven 4 hours there and was driving now 4 hours home . We got hone at midnight. I called management the next morning. Not to get refunded but to let them know and maybe get a discount on the room we paid 500 a night plus for the 300 in the dining room . Even a future stay for the inconvenience. The male manager treated us awful. At one point I asked why he was laughing ? He eventually comped our room however with his condescending ways I will not return . The service at the restaurant was very good
