With views of the Green Mountains and Chittenden Reservoir, The Mountain Top Inn & Resort offers visitors a glimpse of picturesque Vermont scenery. And the resort takes advantage of its natural beauty, providing guests with boat tours and horseback riding during the summer and cross-country skiing and sleigh rides in the winter. Recent visitors also applaud The Mountain Top for its rustic lodgings filled with bright red accents, wood flooring, plush linens and multi-head showers. Others rave about the top-notch restaurant service at Highlands Dining Room and Mountain Top Tavern. The only caveat: the steep nightly rates. However, recent guests say the exquisite service and ambiance is worth every penny. You'll find Mountain Top Inn in Chittenden, Vermont, about 15 miles northeast of Killington.
