Pristine lake is the centerpiece of this scenic, luxurious mountain resort

What is a mountain resort without an adjacent, crystal-clear lake? The Mountain Top Resort has the best of all natural worlds for those seeking a scenic escape into the mountains of Vermont. Nestled on a mountain on 700 private acres of woods and meadows, the resort takes full advantage of a 740-acre lake, offering everything from kayaking, fishing (for bass, walleyes, perch and sunfish) and paddle boarding to pontoon boat cruises. There’s also a Kid’s Pond that’s great for frog-catching. Views of the lake, meadows and mountains are everywhere, including in luxurious accommodations that range from main lodge rooms and suites to cozy cabins for two and guest houses. Even the heated outdoor pool and the restaurant have magnificent views.

Four seasons of the year, the lake is the center of activity at this resort with breathtaking views

At the Lake Morey Resort, the water is the center of many of the resort’s activities and the backdrop for everything from the Lakeside Dining Room to the heated pool and hot tub. There’s kayaking, canoeing, motor boating, paddle boarding and pontoon boat tours on the 600-acre lake. You can even rent a speedboat with a licensed driver so you can water ski, go wakeboarding or tubing. In the winter, there’s pond hockey and a 4.3-mile ice-skating rink that skirts the shoreline. Water views come with many of the resort’s 130 rooms and suites and all of the four private curated lakeside cottages (one cottage has a wraparound porch that will make you feel you are on top of the water). Cottages also have private docks.
