Mountain Top Inn has enjoyed a marvelous evolution during the past century, engendering a long tradition rich in history. The Mountain Top Inn was originally the barn for the Long family’s turnip farm in the 1870's. In the 1940's, William Barstow, an associate of Thomas Edison, purchased the farm because his wife, Francoise, wanted an overflow lodging option for guests arriving from the city. Throughout the ensuing years, improvements and additions to the original building were made, however still maintaining the integrity of its Yankee origin and the beauty and ecology of its natural surroundings.
