Welcome to the Jay Peak Region at the Top of VT‘s Northeast Kingdom

If it is covered bridges, spotted cows and farmers’ markets you seek…look elsewhere. This is the Top of VTTop of VT: Find accommodations, activities, dining, retail and the services.

It’s not that you won’t find such things up here. It’s just that they’re so…tame. The Top of VT is a bit unruly. An area of the Northeast Kingdom (NEK) in the Green Mountains that resists being defined by postcard images. Where people  find a place where the clamor and confusion of everyday life is replaced by preciousness stillness and views of boundless expanse; where they discover a community shaped as much by weather and wilderness, as the quirky culture that comes with living and working along an International border.

So yeah, we’ve got bridges. They just moan with a bit more history. And the spots on our cows are more lopsided than most. And as to our Farmers’ Markets, well, lets just say we live our life  “Farm to Plate’.

This is such a great time of year for Weddings in Vermont. Beautiful covered bridges, farm fields with cows to gaze at, all while taking in the fall foliage like nowhere else and don’t forget the local farmers markets.

Come on in and see what’s waiting for you in the Jay Peak Region at the Top of VT.

Snowshoe Lodge

The Snow Shoe Lodge & Pub , is the best spot in the Jay Peak area for live music, après ski atmosphere and nightlife.  Located in Montgomery Center, at the corner Main Street and Rte. 242  (locally known as the Mountain Road) across from the Montgomery Arts Center and the local grocery store.


The “Shoe is owned and operated by a couple of local firefighters, John Zartarian and Pete Fix. After moving to Vermont, they quickly became involved with local community, from construction to cooks, bartenders to wait staff, each made a niche for themselves in the local bar and restaurant environment. Their love for the community brought them together in the local fire department, creating the team for The Shoe.

The Snow Shoe Lodge & Pub is dedicated to the local community, as well as the many “Out of town” visitors that walk through our doors. Our goal for quality service, food, spirits and entertainment for all of our customers will never be unbroken.

Come in and share stories, get a pint of the local beer or enjoy a glass wine. Our kitchen staff is always coming with inspiring and delicious dishes, not to mention our rave worthy burgers and pizza.
