If you're one of those people who likes to head for the hills to escape the "dog days of summer," there's no better area than the Green Mountains of Vermont. And a perfect place to head for is the Mountain Top Inn and Resort,
11 miles from the popular Killington Ski Resort complex.
Located in Chittenden, Mountain Top is a four-season resort that's great for couples or family getaways. Some of the summer activities you can enjoy onsite include horseback riding at the resort's full-service equestrian center, hiking, mountain biking, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, pontoon boating, fly fishing, and clay pigeon shooting. The resort's activities center also offers plenty of indoor activities for those rainy days, as well as concerts and other entertainment.
Another attraction of Mountain Top is its gourmet restaurant, which brings the sophistication of big city dining to a country setting. The restaurant's tantalizing "New American" cuisine menu features such mouth-watering dishes as
Buttermilk Calamari, Pumpkin Ravioli, Maple Salmon, and Rack of New Zealand Lamb. There is also an extensive wine list, and in fact, the restaurant's special "Wine Dinners," held periodically during the year, are usually sold out.
There are 41 rooms in Mountain Top, which has undergone extensive renovations since the resort was taken over by Steve and Lauren Bryant in June of 2002. The renovation was highlighted by the introduction of a floor of luxury mountain lodge rooms, with whirlpool baths and oversized beds.
