Simply the bestReviewed on 11/03/2014 Heather M
Words can not describe how wonderful the MTI and staff truly are. I never once felt like just another bride, despite them holding weddings all year long. My family and friends were free to enjoy the amazing location, the fabulous service, leaving my husband and I free to soak it all in. Views, food, bar, outdoor ceremony - everything we wanted all in one great location. We chose this venue for the feeling we got from the moment we drove up to visit, and I am could not be more pleased with our choice. Just the best.
A great experience from beginning to endReviewed on 6/01/2014 Shen L
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!
An Amazing Experience!Reviewed on 5/08/2014 Katherine S
My wedding weekend was truly the best weekend of my life because of the Mountain Top Inn. The location was beautiful, the grounds of the Inn are well kept and maintained and the staff is absolutely incredible. Chelsea, our wedding planner, took care of every detail. No matter how big or how small the request was, Chelsea and the rest of the staff at the MTI made it happen. My husband's favorite beer is Switchback, so they made sure to have it on tap. I wanted to make sure I had the chance to sample my wedding cake and the rest of the desserts at my wedding and Chelsea made sure to put a sampler of desserts in my room for after the wedding. I had a very specific vision of how I wanted my wedding to be and Chelsea not only listened but made every detail of my vision happen flawlessly. I emailed her incessantly for almost a year and she never seemed to mind and always answered me promptly. The week before the wedding, she made sure to check her emails on her days off in case I needed anything. The rest of the staff is also top-notch. The bartenders at my rehearsal dinner and reception were so professional but at the same time were so fun and personable. They were the life of the party! No request was out of the realm of possibility. The servers also went out of their way for us all weekend. Everyone we met at the MTI during all of the trips up to visit prior to the wedding for planning purposes to the weekend of the wedding instantly became our friends and did everything they could to cater to our needs. We had our wedding in the off season so we couldn't use the boat house for our rehearsal dinner but the MTI let us rent a vacation home and it worked out so well! The food, from the rehearsal dinner to the reception to the farewell brunch was spectacular. All of my guests were raving about their meals! The Mountain Top Inn is a venue that allows you and your guests to get away for the weekend. It's a great place to have a well done, quality event that still allows you to feel as though you can customize your wedding every step of the way. You can plan your wedding exactly how you want it, down to every detail, or sit back and let the amazing, experienced wedding planners do it for you!
Absolutely Amazing ExperienceReviewed on 11/21/2015 Stacey S
Our wedding day turned out to be nothing short of perfect, thanks in large part to the phenomenal staff at the Mountain Top Inn. Everyone, down to the person driving the van that brought my husband and I to our cabin after the reception, was so warm and friendly to our guests and us. The food was perfect, the coordinator (Caitlin) was fantastic, and honestly, could the view be any more perfect?! (the answer to that is no!) I'd recommend this place to anyone, no questions asked.
Beautiful location for a Vermont weddingReviewed on 10/05/2015 Liz
Our wedding was absolutely amazing and the Mountain Top was a huge part of that. It's not just that the setting cannot be beat. We had an awesome experience working with Caitlin, the wedding coordinator from MTI who was paired with us. She helped our day flow seamlessly -- we had absolutely nothing to do on our wedding weekend but show up and get married! The food, while on the expensive side, is delicious. The barn is beautiful, and climate controlled which is great for a hot summer or cold winter event. We had a great time relaxing on the Chittenden Reservoir before our rehearsal dinner, using the Inn's beach, kayaks, and stand-up paddle boards to enjoy the water. The chalets and rooms we rented were likewise of very high quality, though again they are on the pricier side. We look forward to celebrating our anniversaries here for years to come!
Perfect Vermont Wedding Venue!Reviewed on 8/30/2015 Jessica W
We got married this past July at the Mountain Top Inn and everything about our day was perfect. Our coordinator, Caitlin, was so organized and made everything so easy for us, she was fantastic to work with. The staff at MTI was so incredibly accommodating with every aspect of our wedding, and the food was excellent! The venue is on the more expensive side, but it is worth every penny. We already booked a weekend in the spring at MTI so we can enjoy the property without any wedding responsibilities...we absolutely love this place!
I had a fabulous wedding week at the Mountain Top Inn. I have not seen many prettier places to get married and our guests were absolutely taken aback by the views. Since both families were coming from a distance away, we made a large family vacation out of the trip for the week leading up to the wedding. Definitely take advantage of all of the amenities that the inn has to offer--kayaking, paddle boarding, pool/hot tub, horseback riding (extra $). The lodge itself is very beautiful, but if you have enough people, definitely stay in the vacation homes. Many people chose to do that and had a wonderful time. I would recommend both Four Pines and Wintergreen for larger families, but by far the best house (with the most amazing view) is the White Birches home where my husband and I stayed for the week. We also had our backyard barbeque for our rehearsal dinner there and the views were amazing--not to mention the 20+ horses that were wandering around the fields behind. Our guests raved about the food, both at the events and while they were staying at the inn. The ceremony was up on the "knoll" overlooking the mountains and the water. Not only were the views breathtaking, the landscaping was exquisite as well. Our reception was down at the beach pavilion (only 60 guests), and it was the perfect size and a beautiful location on the water. I would recommend eating in the pavilion and dancing on the deck outside--that way, you have enough space for both. While the ceremony and reception locations are spread out throughout the property, the staff was very quick and accommodating with shuttle rides whenever they were requested. We could not have had a better week there. Thank you!
We can't explain how happy we were that we went with MTI as our venue for our wedding. We had looked at multiple venues but as soon as we stepped foot on the property we KNEW it was it. The inn was beautiful, the views were amazing, the barn was a perfect place for our wedding, and the accommodations (houses to rent) were above and beyond. We wanted a venue where everything could be in one location and MTI offered all of this and more. We had out of town guests rent houses in groups to save money and make a mini vaca out of our wedding weekend. We were able to get almost 1/2 of our wedding guests to ski at Killington the day before while the others, went xc and sledding at MTI. Now, I am a foodie and was so worried about the food...but it all came out hot and delicious! They set up everything and took it down and i was stress free on my wedding day! We had an outdoor ceremony in March (yes) where it snowed and MTI did an amazing job at working us to get a snow cat for our pictures, a sleigh ride to hold all of the wedding party as the entrance to the ceremony, hot chocolate for the guests, etc. We worked with Jodie and she made sure everything went perfectly and she never let me see her stress as I am sure she knew I would start to stress. Wedding was perfect and Jodie was there every step of the way to ensure our day was PERFECT. Our guests had SO many compliments about the service at MTI; welcoming, friendly, accommodating, etc. Go with MTI if you love that rustic/barn/outdoor venue.
Absolutely Amazing Venue!Reviewed on 4/21/2015 Erin B
This place is truly amazing! The staff at The Mountain Top Inn and resort were great to work with, so friendly and accommodating. Our coordinator Caitlin, went above and beyond our expecting and we were truly blessed to have Caitlin help us every step of the way. All of are friends and family are still talking about how much fun they had at the Mountain Top. My husband and I love this place so much that can't wait to visit and make an annual trip to celebrate our anniversary.
Wonderful New England VenueReviewed on 10/07/2014 Jennifer L
We loved working with Mountain Top Inn for our September wedding. The wedding coordinator made sure that our weekend was filled with fun and love rather than table settings and cake deliveries. They truly are professionals. Our guests loved their time in Vermont, and there are a variety of housing options for different price points.
Had a beautiful day!Reviewed on 4/16/2014 Gayle H
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!
A splendid eventReviewed on 1/28/2014 Audrie L
I had a wonderful wedding in the Barn at The Mountain Top Inn and resort. Over 100 of my family and friends gathered and stayed for the weekend. The resort staff was attentive. The food was beautiful and delicious. The location is outstanding and picturesque despite rainy conditions. Khele and Leah made our day something very special for us and our families.
Beautiful setting, great value, service needs workReviewed on 11/24/2013 Phillip D
We loved this location and everything about it! The food was great, and there was so much for guests to do over the weekend. Our only complaint is our experience with the wedding planner. She was slow to return emails, couldn't seem to remember the details of what we wanted (we had to continually correct her), constantly tried to push for us to spend more money, and didn't seem to be enthusiastic about her job. To her credit, she had everything together on the day of the wedding and we had a wonderful experience. Would recommend to others.
Beautiful venue with top-notch food and serviceReviewed on 10/02/2013 Kirsten S
We had our wedding at the Mountain Top Inn last month and couldn't be more thrilled with how it all turned out. We had our ceremony up on the knoll (the sun came out just long enough for us to squeeze it in!) and our cocktail hour and reception in the new barn. We worked with Chelsea, one of the two coordinators for the Mountain Top, from the moment we signed the contract. She was incredibly helpful, answering every single question I had and providing guidance throughout the year leading up to the wedding. And on the weekend of the wedding itself, she and the staff of the Mountain Top took care of everything including setup of our decorations, corralling everyone for both the rehearsal and the ceremony, coordinating the vendors, etc. Because of Chelsea and the staff, my husband and I were able to relax and enjoy spending the weekend with our family and friends. Every single element of the service was top notch. JR, the bartender, worked with us to get our signature cocktail perfected (and made sure we always had one in our hands at the cocktail hour and reception!), the wait staff was incredibly professional and friendly, and every single member of the staff was happy to help anytime a question arose. In fact several of our guests commented on how wonderful the service/staff was. I'd be remiss to not mention the food as it was fantastic. We received a ton of compliments on the prime rib but people also enjoyed the chicken statler and autumn risotto too (and the sides were all delicious!) To produce such good food in such large quantities is challenging but the Mountain Top did an amazing job. And the food was very reasonably priced. Our guests had a great time all weekend (several took advance of the activities on site on Saturday morning, including kayaking, clay shooting, tennis, etc.). And they loved having everything - including the rehearsal dinner - on site. We were absolutely thrilled with how the whole wedding weekend turned out and can't wait to return to the Mountain Top to celebrate future anniversaries.
wedding venueReviewed on 9/21/2013 Michele P
We had a wonderful wedding at the resort. The food was excellent and Lauren the wedding coordinator was amazing. My only recommendation for improvement is that many resort guests went through the barn while I was setting up and even were so bold as to touch my wedding favors and decorations. I think the barn should be off limits unless accompanied by a resort staff member (for potential brides and grooms). Other than that, I was very pleased with my experience.
Beautiful!Reviewed on 11/13/2012 Jennifer G
The first time I saw this place I fell in love with it! The folliage was perfect for my wedding. The staff is helpful and communicate often! I had a Sunday wedding, so no venue fee. The food was a little expensive but nothing you wouldn't expect. The lodging was wonderful as well. They offered me rooms at the same rate as the comfort inn. My final cost included rooms, food, rehearsal dinnner, the whole deal (minus the cake and the flowers). I can't say enough good things! everything was wonderful!
Amazing for weekend wedding!Reviewed on 11/12/2012 Jennifer G
The Mountain Top Inn is amazing for a weekend wedding location. All guests can stay right on location which is very convenient and our group was the only ones there so all our guests got to know each other! The rooms are so cozy. We had all guest at our rehearsal dinner 'hoe-down' which was great! The food is amazing and Chelsea the wedding coordinator is great to work with! The tent on location is really beautiful and the entire tent has wood flooring! Can't say enough good things!

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.
Gorgeous placeReviewed on 7/24/2012 Liz B
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.
The Mountain Top Inn is Superb!Reviewed on 6/28/2012 Emily K
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!
A great place to have a wedding!Reviewed on 4/14/2012 Samantha N
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.
End of Summer WeddingReviewed on 2/07/2012 Julie D
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!
Amazing!Reviewed on 12/23/2011 Tanya V
Perfect venue for a rustic outdoor Vermont wedding. Can't pay for the views you get here.
The Most Wonderful Wedding!Reviewed on 12/19/2011 Erin S
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!
