Burlington, Vermont

The home we confirmed for our daughter’s wedding was changed a week prior. I was told by the manager that the owner had decided to use the property. Topnotch assured a comparable home that was “nicer and recently redone”. At check in I confirmed this again, Carol assured us that it was wonderful. It was not “wonderful” as evident by the large stains on the carpet. I’m limited in this review, a full review is on Top Notch Facebook. The food that they served my guests was embarrassing. The bride spit the second course into her napkin to avoid swallowing it. They omitted expensive elements like Vermont maple syrup and a saffron garnish replacing with a strip of red jar pepper. Detailed menu in writing was ignored, Topnotch served whatever was convenient for them. The bridal suite was a sad dark room overlooking the back parking lot. The Bride and Groom did not stay in that room. Topnotch has admitted that their internal miscommunication led to the “disappointing meal”. I have paid in full for the “disappointing meal” and all the other things they promised. You got me Topnotch, never again!

Not like it used to be

Have stayed at Topnotch many times beginning in 1998. The "old" Topnotch had a welcoming feel. There was a common area where after a long day on the slopes or a day of touring, exploring, or shopping you could return to the resort and relax, rest, visit next to the big wood fireplace with the moose head on the wall and unobstructed views of the mountains through huge windows with the sun shining in. The cookies and tea would come out at 3pm and everyone would show up for the little extraordinary treat. There was a sense of community with all the guests that congregated. I took many naps on the couches in that space. The redesign took that away. Now I feel that Topnotch is just like any other resort. There is nothing that sets it apart. The rooms are not much different than they used to be. The spa and pool areas are still very nice and the waterfall hot tub is wonderful. The exercise room is now closed after 7pm when the spa closes. What hotel/resort have you stayed in lately that closes the exercise area as early as 7pm??? I'm really disappointed with the make over and will probably look into staying somewhere else next trip. On top of all the changes, the prices went through the roof. It is sad to see a place with so many of our family's memories change for the worse. If you don't remember the old Topnotch, you'll probably enjoy it. But, I am not impressed with the changes.
