Fodor's Expert Review The Mountain Top Inn & Resort
195 Mountain Top Rd., Chittenden, Vermont, 05737, USA
This cross-country skiing and horseback riding haven has stunning views and laid-back yet luxurious accommodations. There's a full equestrian center with dozens of horses, a beach with kayaks and canoes, and a summer camp for kids. In winter, there are tubing hills, snowmobile tours, sleigh rides, and ski and snowshoe rentals, so you can enjoy the 37 miles of trails. Three suites have fireplaces, as do the cabins. A spa that the resort describes as "rustic-luxe" offers a full range of treatments in its 6,000-square-foot wood-panel, slate-floor facility. The Highlands Dining Room features local foods in a slightly formal setting; the Mountain Top Tavern has a casual publike feel.
