Improvements made to the resort, which was built in 1959, are many, said resort general manager Aaron Black, including orienting the lobby to show more of Mt. Mansfield; renovating guestrooms with hand-made furniture, native textiles and hand-painted artwork; new treatment experiences called “Pathways to Wellness” at the spa; new outdoor spaces for weddings and retreats; and a new design for the ballroom and meeting spaces. Also new is a restaurant and bar, The Roost, with a second restaurant, Flannel, replacing the former Norma’s. The hotel, a pet-friendly one, is part of the MetWest Terra Hospitality collection of boutique hotels. For information and booking, visit www.topnotchresort.com, or call 800-451-8686.
