Mountain Top Inn & Resort, just a short drive from Killington, is Vermont’s only resort with a full service equestrian program. While offering accommodations and activities all 4 seasons of the year, the equestrian programs are available in summer months only - June through October.

Set on 700 private acres and abutting the Green Mountain National Forest, riders have easy access to over 40 miles of trails. With meadows, woods, streams and sweeping views of a 740 acre lake and the surrounding Green Mountain range riders will experience some of the most scenic trails in New England.

The Resort's Equestrian Center comes alive June through October, catering to horse riders of all levels - novice to advanced. Guests will enjoy guided trail rides on horseback with breathtaking views, lessons in English or Western, introduction to cross-country jumping, dressage and more. Working with many of the same horses for years, the staff can help each rider choose the perfect mount. Or if you prefer, bring your own horse and take advantage of on-site stabling.

Mountain Top Inn & Resort offers luxurious accommodations with classic & luxury lodge rooms & suites, luxury cabins and guest houses. In addition to the riding programs, in summer guests have access to fishing, boating, a private beach on a pristine mountain lake, heated pool, disc golf, tennis, volleyball, clay bird shooting, hiking and cycling trails. In winter, guests enjoy quintessential Vermont activities such as cross country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, sledding, snowmobiling and horse drawn sleigh rides. The resort also offers free daily shuttles to nearby Killington for Alpine skiing.

Year-round, guests have access to a full service spa & salon, hot tub, fitness room and sauna. Also on property guests enjoy creative cuisine in the Mountain Top Dining Room & Tavern, In summer months outdoor terrace seating takes full advantage of the spectacular view.

Within just a few miles, guests can visit several of Vermont’s local breweries/wineries/cideries, the state’s largest year-round farmer’s market, antiquing, retail shopping, golf, a wide variety of outdoor activities, scenic drives (with covered bridges and the world’s best foliage!), farms, ‘maple sugar makers’ and more.

Mountain Top Inn & Resort’s central Vermont location makes it a short drive from all points in the Northeast and because of its ease of access to major northeast cities and airports, it has a wide appeal for nation-wide and international travelers.
