    Literal perfection

    Where do I begin? We got married at Mountain Top Inn & Resort on 7/16/2022 and it was truly the best day of our lives. But lets back up- we booked the day TWO YEARS prior and despite being two years out- we were immediately connected to a planner. Our planner Chelsea was with us from day one and was always so communicative, patient and supportive. One of our favorite things about getting married at Mountain Top was having a excuse to visit the beautiful place numerous times over the planning process. We've stayed in the Inn, the cabins and houses on the property- all of which are clean, comfortable and beautiful! The wedding weekend was truly a dream- we had over 100 guests staying on property and everyone had the time of their lives. The rehearsal dinner down at the lake was picturesque, well run and food was delicious. The photo-ops are gorgeous and the vibes are casual yet elevated - a chic Vermont summer camp dream! Saturday, our wedding day was even better. Everything was setup exactly as discussed, everything ran on time thanks to our incredible day-of coordinator Rachel, the food was amazing. I could go on and on! Truly not one thing went wrong- all expectations were exceeded and now we get to have Mountain Top as our special place forever. Our guests can not stop saying that it was the best wedding they've ever been to. The VIEWS cannot be beat and the way MTI runs a event is the perfect mix of elegant, casual and comfortable. 11/10 would recommend! Thank you Chelsea, Rachel, Jay (beverage manager) and all the other INCREDIBLY kind MTI staff that made our weekend so special.

    Incredible and Seamless Wedding!

    The Mountain Top Inn and Resort made our wedding magical. We had a complicated and involved wedding with 3 days of Hindu and Jewish ceremonies. The inn helped us with the planning and made everything run seamlessly.
    Chelsea helped me plan every detail for over 2 years. She kept track of every single email, answered every question, made sure everything was organized and in one place. She also made adjustments to the seating/food/decor at the last minute, a week before the wedding, which I really appreciated.

    Gayle did the decorations for us and she was incredible. We had ceremonies across 4 different locations at the Mountain Top Inn and Gayle made every single one of them look magical.

    Taylor, our day of co-ordinator was incredible. She came to have a meeting with us on her day off. She ran around personally delivering welcome bags to every guest. She worked tirelessly for us, starting at 8 or 9 am and going till well past 10 pm. Everything was seamless because of her. I was so relaxed at the actual wedding and able to enjoy myself because I knew Taylor was handling every detail.

    Our guests raved about all the staff at the inn (bartenders, waiters, shuttle drivers). They were all very friendly and helpful and willing to go above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and happy.

    Would highly recommend the Mountain Top Inn for any wedding!

Easily, the Mountain Top Inn is among the best wedding venues, if not, THE best wedding venue in Vermont. The food and view of the Chittenden reservoir is always second to none and the staff is friendly and courteous. I highly recommend Mountain Top Inn for your wedding, or any other function... you will be glad you did!

Beautiful views of the countryside and the new barn is a great addition. I love to bring my cakes to the Mountain Top and be part of the action there.

I first photographed a wedding at The Mountaintop Inn & Resort in July of 2004. Not only is the location breathtaking, but the staff went out of their way to make sure the guests and vendors had whatever they needed. I was extremely impressed with the ease in which the days events flowed and how pleasant it was to be working at this venue. The guests were able to be there for the weekend and many of them commented to me how fabulous the resort was and how relaxed they were able to feel at this wedding. I didn't want the night to end! This has been the case consistently over the years and the Mountain Top remains one of my favorite places to photograph weddings. Very highly recommended!
