I grew up in Vermont and really wanted to return to my home state for the big day, my husband was on board with this and we both wanted something rustic, fun and classy. The Mtn Top Inn is all these things! The ceremony site is beautiful! Both reception sites are very nice - I can't speak to the barn b/c my husband wanted the tent and we loved it, but the barn seemed nice too. The food was good, the backdrop and setting is phenomenally beautiful. We used the Mountain Aire Lodge to house us and several members of our bridal party for the weekend and it was amazing. It's a bit pricey but well worth the splurge!! The resort staff and our wedding planner, Lauren are all laid back and want to work with you to make your day exactly what you want. My husband and I have only the best things to say about The Mtn Top Inn/Resort, our wedding and our day! Thank you, Mountain Top Inn!
My husband and I got married at The Mountain Top Inn last September and had the most wonderful experience. Both of our families are out of state so we chose the venue, not only for its beauty, but because it was able to accommodate all of our guests and offered something for everyone. From the start, their wedding coordinator Chelsea was extremely hands on. If it wasn't for her I may have lost my mind, especially because Hurricane Irene hit the weekend before we were supposed to get married. When the resort had no power and I was frantically emailing and trying to call, Chelsea got back to me the minute she could, calmed my nerves and assured me that everything would still go just as planned for our wedding..and she was absolutely right! Everyone arrived, with only minor detours, and I didn't have to worry about a thing. Chelsea and the resort catered to Mike and I to make sure we had the most perfect day. We couldn't thank Chelsea, The Mountain Top or any of our vendors more, they will forver be a part of our most exciting day!
I was married last month at the Mountain Top and it was fabulous. Leah was my coordinator and she was great. The planning was easy as Leah walked us through all the steps.The food was delicious, and everything went off without a hitch. The location was gorgeous, which made for excellent pictures. The price was reasonable for such a beautiful location. We stayed in one of the honeymoon suites and found it to be perfect for what we needed.
My wife and I got married at the Mountain Top Inn a few months back and it was truly a terrific experience from beginning to end. Chelsea was our wedding coordinator and she was super professional from our first interaction with her. She was super-responsive to our many questions and also proactively made sure we were thinking about details that we needed to think through.
The wedding weekend itself was terrific. The memory that best exemplifies our experience was after my wife and I went down the sledding hill in our wedding attire. We came back into the lodge invigorated, but cold and covered with snow. The staff had drinks waiting for both of us, a hot toddy for my wife and something called 'liquid fire' for me. That was pretty much how things went the entire time -- really friendly, attentive, and thoughtful service.
The venue itself is beautiful. We wanted a rustic venue close to nature, but also a place where all our guests could stay on-site and Mountain Top fit that right to a tee. The event barn is a modern space with a rustic feel to it. It can accommodate a few hundred people, but did not feel too large for our wedding of about 90 guests. We had a winter wedding so many of our guests went skiing at Killington which isn't far away, or did cross-country skiing (there are a number of trails on the Mountain Top property). Pretty much everyone took advantage of the sledding hill, since they have sleds available for anyone to use at any time.
A word about food - the food at the actual reception was great, but we were a bit underwhelmed at the tasting. Mountain Top does two tastings a year where they bring together all the couples who are getting married in the upcoming months. This way, you get to taste a wider variety of things, but I think that doing things this way makes quaity control a bit harder. For example, the salmon that was a bit dry at the tasting was perfectly cooked at the reception itself. I guess it's better to have the food come out well at the event than at the tasting, but something to keep in mind. The restaurant at the inn itself is terrific and we had many great meals there.
Anyway, to sum it up, Mountain Top is a beautiful venue in a beautiful setting with really good food and great service. Highly recommended if you're looking for a wedding in a rustic venue without compromising on the creature comforts!
Amazing. All of the guests loved the many, many activities. The food was exquisite! The view is beautiful and I had the most amazing wedding.
Fantastically beautiful inn - great place for a get-away. it's expensive, but we got a living social voucher, which made it a steal. Amazing foods, activities, and views.
I cannot say enough about the Mountain Top Inn for the most beautiful and romantic Vermont wedding setting. My husband and I came across the Inn totally on accident when we were visiting from New Jersey for vacation, and we were stunned by the mountain views and the feeling of being at home there. We were newly engaged, so we went back home and looked for something comparable for the next year...Needless to say nothing in our area came close, so we decided to book our wedding here and we were so happy that we did!
The staff is excellent, including the professional and calming wedding coordinators, and everything from the views to the gorgeous grounds, delicious food, and top-notch, responsive service was above and beyond our expectations for our wedding.
Thank you MTI!
We held our wedding here last month and it was awesome! Our wedding coordinator (through the Mountain Top Inn and Resort), Chelsea, was so helpful throughout the entire planning process all the way to the day after the wedding. She made what seemed like a terrifying and daunting task of planning a wedding a pleasant and not so scary experience. From helping us pick the perfect location for the ceremony to reminding us that we would need table linens, she was on top of everything! The wedding itself was everything we could possibly have imagined and more. The staff, the facilities, the food, and the views were absolutely amazing! Our family and friends can't say enough good things about the Inn either and are hoping to go back this summer for a visit.
Perfect venue for a rustic outdoor Vermont wedding. Can't pay for the views you get here.
My husband and I were married at the Mountain Top Inn this past October, 2011. From the beginning of our planning through the wedding, the inn was wonderful at accommodating all of our needs.
The Mountain Top has a special event coordinator, Chelsea Howe, who was always available to answer any and every question I had as they arose during my year of planning. She was in contact with my vendors, and also had wonderful vendor recommendations. During our wedding weekend, she was present the entire time, and made sure everything ran smoothly.
To give a few more details about the available services - we had 170 person wedding, and 7 different catered events over the course of the weekend. Friday we chose a buffet style BBQ dinner, we had brunches planned for both Saturday and Sunday morning, a soup/salad/sandwich lunch on Saturday, the cocktail party and of course the reception, as well as late night "munchie" food in the tavern following the reception! All of the food is made in the kitchen at the inn, so there is no need to bring in outside caterers (except for the wedding cake). They had SO many options for food, my husband and I had a hard time deciding what we wanted to offer at each event. They also had a full bar, and provided our favorite types of beer and alcohol during the course of the weekend.
Almost all of our guests chose to stay at the inn, which provides guest rooms, cabins, and chalet homes with nightly rents. Transportation was provided between the inns and chalet homes (although within walking distance) which was necessary on our wedding weekend because it rained almost the entire time!
A note about the rain - it didn't affect the wedding at all! Although there is a beautiful outdoor arbor/alter/chuppah for the ceremony which we were really looking forward to getting married under, the ceremony was moved inside last minute and was still beautiful.
On the day of the wedding, I didn't have to handle a thing. Chelsea managed all of the vendors, and the tent, tables, and decorations were set up perfectly. She was there during the ceremony to tell everyone when it was their turn to walk down the aisle, and was there at the end of the night to make sure the kitchen was ready with the late-night pizzas we ordered for our guests!
I could go on for days about the breathtaking mountain views, but you honestly have to see it to believe it. The weekend was perfect, and everyone told us what an amazing time they had, and how beautiful the location was. No one seemed to mind about the rain at all!
I honestly can't say enough wonderful things about our experience at The Mountain Top Inn. The accommodations were warm and beautiful, the service was perfect, the food was delicious, and I would recommend this venue to anyone!
My wife and I were married at the Mountain Top Inn 8/7/11. We are from Boston, and were on the fence about the destination wedding concept. We visited the Inn and our apprehension immediately dissolved. The staff and Chelsea treated us like royalty, and made the whole process a fun adventure from start to finish. On the wedding day, the food was perfect and everything went picture perfect. All of our friends said it was the best wedding they have ever been to- and they were not just being polite! Absolutely A+ in every regard!
Thanks Chelsea and everyone at The Mountain Top!

I couldn't have asked for a better venue. Mountain Top inn made my wedding, having those amazing views, great food and amazing service. As it was a little on the pricey side it was well worth the cost. Would highly recommend Mountain Top Inn!
Our wedding at Mountain Top Inn exceeded our expectations! The setting is picturesque, the staff is friendly and accommodating, the food was exceptional, and there is a variety of activities for guests to enjoy! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue! We highly recommend Mountain Top Inn to all future brides and grooms!
We had our wedding at the resort. The location is absolutely beautiful. The staff is extremely nice and they worked very hard to make our day magical.
Besides being one of the most beautiful places in Vermont, the staff at Mountain Top is willing to go the extra mile to make all your wishes come true. I don't think they said no to me once. Any decoration and request was quickly granted. This of course made planning the day so much easier!
I love the Mountain Top Inn & Resort. It is special to Geoff and I as we met in Killington. The Mountain Top sits atop a hill with a scenic view of Killington and Pico over the beautiful reservoir. Our wedding was October 23rd, one week after peak fall foliage and Killington already started blowing snow on the trails so we had a win-win situation. The weather ended up being warm enough to hold outside after a brief snowfall in the morning. The sun came out and warmed up to about 50 degrees. The views from the trestle were breathtaking. A horse drawn carriage with two white horses, named Jack and Jill, took me up the hill to the ceremony site! A full moon rose over the mountains and glistened off of the reservoir at night. The entire event from Rehearsal Dinner to Sunday brunch was truely magical!
The Mountain Top Inn was such an incredible place to hold a wedding, from the beautiful views to the coziness of the inn. It was fabulous from start to finish. On top of it, it was very affordable. We had a wedding on a tight budget and stayed right in line with it.
