Originally built in 1912 as summer home for the Wycoff family, the Sullivan family purchased the property in 1932 and opened Hill Top Inn on July 3, 1933. While the building has been expanded and upgraded throughout the years to accommodate private events, the original hardwood floor and large stone fireplace are the centerpiece of the restaurant. Now over 85 years later, the third and fourth generation Sullivan family to own the restaurant are still here daily to care for our guests every day.

My husband and I had a fantastic experience working with the entire staff of the Hill Top Inn for our wedding. Our ceremony and reception were both hosted at Hill Top and we have no complaints about how things went. The food and beverages were excellent, the ceremony and reception areas were beautifully decorated, and the location has an unbeatable view. Every member of the staff was personable and attentive that day, and Kaylee and Mike were incredible during our year-long planning process. I can't recommend their services enough!Sent on 09/04/2018

Great job by Hilltop Team
The Hill Top Inn team did a great job for our daughter’s wedding in October er.Sent on 01/08/2019
The wedding and reception were beautiful. The food was great. Everything went off like clockwork. The team’s hard work was evident throughout the day, they were efficient and effective. Kaylee's personal attention to detail was obvious.
We especially appreciate their flexibility and can-do attitude as we changed plans during the day as the weather deteriorated. The worsening weather ended up having no affect on everyone’s good time.
The wedding and reception were so enjoyable, our nephew was inspired to propose to his girl friend at our house later that evening! Clearly the great work by the team influenced his decision!

We held our son's wedding rehearsal dinner on Friday, August 3, 2018 at the Hill Top Inn & Restaurant. I highly recommend, and have already recommended the Hill Top Inn to many friends. The food was outstanding. Kaylee Morse assisted us in planning the event, the staff was friendly, professional, and competent. The view the restaurant has is unique to the Hill Top. Our family and friends that attended the event were able to relax on the outdoor deck in front of the fireplaces and didn't want to leave at night's end. Great job staff at the Hill Top! Top notch service and atmosphere!Sent on 08/07/2018
