For Serious Riders
The Mountain Top Inn & Resort
$$$ – $$$$ Mid-Priced to Luxury
In the US, finding an equestrian vacation that doesn’t include the ‘dudes’ (as in dude ranch), is a bit of a challenge. But offering a riding-centric destination that also includes Western and English style riding (plus clinics in jumping and other areas of specialty) isn’t what makes The Mountain Top Inn & Resort so special.
It’s the location that really sets it apart. Nestled in the heart of Vermont, Mountain Top is exactly how you imagine Vermont: rolling hills, scenic lakes, leafy forests and Cape Cods. Inside the Inn, the picture book continues with cozy, classic (but not stuffy) New England-style rooms.
Mountain Top Inn boasts many amenities and diversions, but their horse riding truly does set them apart. Guests have 350 acres of gorgeous countryside that they can ramble over, either with one of the horses from their stables, or on their own mount which they can stable at the Inn during their visit. Rides are fully customized to meet the ability and desire of the rider and is open year-long. There’s also a lakeside beach to relax by, a spa for pampering, yoga, hiking and all the other vacation necessities to enjoy. Still looking for a good excuse to visit? Say you’re going for the antiquing.
