  • Great Family Fun!

    by AnneSchmitt on 2019-05-22 03:09 am

    This is one of those great, old fashioned family resorts - like the ones in movies or TV shows like The Marvelous Mrs. Maizel or Dirty Dancing. Tons of activities for all ages including hiking, golf, tennis, paintball, swimming, and many other adventures. Activities all day and evening for everyone. The meals are family style, dress for the dining room, etc. The food is pretty good - perfect for families, but not necessarily foodies.

  • Wonderful Anniversary

    by rainsfordphilip on 2019-05-21 06:37 pm

    With crisp mountain air, beautiful scenery, and an amazing lodge, what else could one ask for? My girlfriend stayed a night to celebrate our 1 year anniversary.

    We arrived early to be able to take advantage of some of the hiking trails and to see the grounds a little, but were able to check in to our room early.

    Although we were handed a list of activities when we arrived (some of which seemed tempting), we were there to celebrate, so we simply relaxed while being in each other's company.

    This was an amazing place to get away from every for a Saturday in the spring. Not sure about other months/ seasons, but it was a wonderful time.

  • Old World Luxury Delivers Momentous Meeting

    by David S on 2019-05-18 05:09 am

    Skytop Lodge was the perfect setting for our business group who needed to get away from the day to day operational views and begin to think differently in order to discover solutions for the organization.

    Skytop Lodge was the perfect setting to step away from our world view and walk into updated old world luxury.

    The meeting space featured a wall of windows that led out to a flagstone porch, where we had lunches, small group meetings and walks to the putting green to open up the mind between meetings.

    The staff Emily, Miguel, Brian and Orlando fulfilled and problem solved for our emerging needs over an entire week of long days with multiple speakers and small group work. We had 50 people, which the hotel and ample meeting space with a variety of lobby alcoves served our real-time needs as they emerged through an ever-changing week.

    The blend of inspiring outside activities and options combined with the old world luxury that helped us deliver inspired actions that will have impact in our business.

  • Relaxing stay in a lovely setting

    by debg926 on 2019-05-16 05:41 pm

    We spent two nights at Skytop in the main lodge in a Premium King Garden room. We enjoyed our stay and left feeling refreshed. The setting of Skytop is lovely. All of the staff were warm and friendly.

    Our room was comfortable, a decent size and had a nice view of the garden in back. When the flowers are in bloom, the gardens must be beautiful. The other, front, side of the hotel also would have great views of Skytop Lake and the mountains. If I return, I would try to get a room with such views.

    Our room had updated bed linens, drapes and bathroom, which was small but very functional. Some of the furniture seemed a little worn, but overall the room was very nice. A nice bonus for me was that plush robes are provided.

    We did not have neighbors for our first night. On the second night, we had neighbors on both sides. The walls are thin so we could hear them initially. But I think everyone was respectful of the thin walls and kept noise to a minimum. We slept without interruption.

    The lobby of the main lodge is charming. We love historic hotels. There are several dining options on-site. We ate our dinners in the Windsor dining room as they were great about accommodating a dairy allergy. Our first meal was just average. Our second meal was quite delicious. The breakfast buffet also was very good. Breakfast was included in our room rate. Otherwise, the buffet appears to cost $25/pp. If you prefer a lighter breakfast, there is a small coffee shop with pastries.

    There are a myriad of activities at the resort, particularly on the weekends. I can only imagine the number of activities as the weather warms up. We did two hikes at the resort. You can get the trail map online or at the front desk. It lacks some detail but you can figure it out on the trail. Our first hike was 10 miles. We went to Goose Pond and then swung by the Indian Ladder waterfalls on the way back. From there we followed the Waterfall Ramble, which included a stream crossing to access the Trout Stream trail. Fun hike. The next day we visited the Leavitt Waterfall, maybe a 4 mile loop.

    We also did the History Tour for $10/pp. We really enjoyed learning about the hotel's past. There is an observation deck that is accessed from the 4th floor of the main lodge. It was created during WWII so that volunteers could watch for enemy airplanes. From the deck, you get wonderful 360 degree views of the landscape.

    We did not use the small spa on the 4th floor of the main lodge. But I went up and checked out the waiting area after hours. The lounge area seemed dated. I think the hotel should consider building an addition with a spa. It would be a nice enhancement.

    Bottom line: We had a lovely, refreshing stay and were never bored.

  • Beautiful, Peaceful Resort; Great for Families

    by LaurenJ2511 on 2019-05-07 10:41 am

    We stayed at Skytop Lodge in April, and it was wonderful. It's a bit like stepping back into time. The staff is top-notch, the decorations are classic, and the atmosphere makes you want to turn off your electronics and soak in the beauty.

    There is soooooo much to do. We spent a lot of time outdoors, hiking, playing games, and just sitting in the beautiful scenery. The restaurants were good, the pool was very enjoyable, and the game room was great for the kids.

    I appreciate you taking the time to write your thoughts about Skytop. You touched on all there is to do and our fabulous Activities Dept. is very appreciative. Their goal is to match our guests needs with all of our outdoor and indoor offerings, and it appears we were successful.

    Ready to welcome you back!!!

    All the best,
