We have stayed at several resorts that to an urban dweller would seem to be well off the beaten track. Of these, Mountain Edge is certainly the best. We spent five days during the low spot between early Autumn and Winter. We had a one BR suite on second floor with full kitchen, overlooking road. Our room accommodations were nearly perfect. Television was excellent, free Wi-Fi in room with excellent response.
The entire staff, Tom the owner, GM Jesse and his front desk staff, maid service, spa, restaurant, were without exception courteous, helpful, and always friendly. The restaurant is the Mountain Spirit Tavern. Its chef, Paul, offered surprising and well-prepared creations. The restaurant had a minimum staff because of the season, but still provided excellent food and service. The restaurant serves only an evening meal; a nuisance only, since we did have a kitchen and there is a breakfast place down the road.
A game room/library is on the upper floor, supplied with overstuffed couches, board games and reading materials. The resort has an elevator, important for people with walking difficulties. Swimming pool is perhaps nine meters long, in any case long enough to do short laps. Heated pool is close to 104F (40C). Exercise room was well appointed.
The down side? Distances, mostly. The resort has an attached General Store with convenience store prices. The nearest grocery store and shopping area are in Newport, about eleven miles away. Another good restaurant, Bubba’s, is about two miles down the road.
I suspect this place changes its personality when the snow is on the ground and the resort fills up. But for Autumn touring, I have not seen anything better. I agree with the sentiments in other recent reviews. Mountain Edge Resort is a very nice place to stay.
