"The World is a Book and Those Who Do Not Travel Read Only One Page." - Saint Augustine
Close your eyes and imagine being transformed to the beautiful forest of Narnia, crisp fresh air, peaceful solitude, flocked trees as far as the eye can see and the chill of fluttering snowflakes quietly kissing your nose. Well, it may be impossible to magically appear in a C.S. Lewis novel, but the ethereal Mountain Top Inn & Resort in the quaint town of Chittenden, Vermont left me feeling like I was right in the middle of the storybook classic.
Barns, covered bridges and country churches dotted the hillside, and while it was not Christmas, the townspeople let the decorations adorn their houses and businesses for as long as possible. Cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, sleigh rides, ice fishing and sledding are a few of the activities that can be enjoyed just minutes from your trailside cabin, or if you prefer to relax, be sure to indulge in a hot stone massage or soothing pedicure with the snow-covered mountains as a backdrop.
If you ever find yourself in the beautiful state of Vermont be sure to make a pit stop at the Mountain Top Inn & Resort.
