I love historic hotels, so made a detour to stay at this one. I am glad I did- the lobby is wonderful, as are all of their historic pictures. The rooms have been updated, so they don't have a lot of historic charm, but ours was comfortable and clean. The grounds are great to walk around, with several trails and...

Other reviewers noted that the property was "dated", I have to say that is completely untrue~the property is meticulously maintained and everything is beautiful. The furniture in the main hall and the library is gorgeous, leather and upholstery all new, the library bar is classy and stunning with granite bartops, our bartenders Tara and Joseph were wonderful. There are activities...

Dear rtnovell, I enjoyed reading about your recent visit to Skytop. I appreciate your feedback about our team and agree that Tara and Joseph provide excellent service.

We just returned from a weekend at Skytop Lodge in the Poconos. If you are an outdoor lover you will be mesmerized from the minute you pull in the scenic drive. At first glance, the Shining comes to mind, but then a warm fuzzy feeling takes over when you see the porch with trailing red geraniums, white rockers and moss...

Lobby atmosphere was good and grounds were beautiful, but not too much more positive to say. Food was overpriced and indoor golf/play area was very lacking. Staff were average. Room was very small and extremely hot. Would not recommend and would not go back. We ended up going to the casino close by and spending most of our time there.

I had been looking at Skytop online for almost 2 years. We finally bit the bullet and made our reservations for a romantic weekend away in early November. I had scoured their website and reviews on multiple sites - all were very helpful. I have to say that my partner and I are both very patient, pretty easy-going people. We...

My husband and I were looking for a weekend getaway that wasn't too far from NYC and was more affordable than Mohonk and Woodloch, and Skytop totally delivered. I usually prefer a more modern hotel, but Skytop's charm and amenities more than made up for it. We spent two nights during a perfect fall weekend, here are some details: Hotel...

Stayed in a premium king room at the main lodge for one night. We arrived on a Friday about 1pm to check in. The first room we were given had only a roof/air conditioner view even though the description stated a stunning view of mountains and lake. We refused the room. The second room might have had a view from...

Dear Fred F, Thank you for sharing your recent experiences with me. Skytop is an historic hotel and many of our rooms have different floor plans, and no two rooms in the Lodge are identical. The descriptions on the website convey the approximate room size and view. I do hope that you will visit us again in the near future....

I visited for one night only, my wife's birthday, our stay was beautiful, a quaint, quiet, personal room in the cottages. Our dinner in the Windsor room, sadly, bordered on disaster. Both dinners were served so quickly we barely had time to breath after opening courses. And both our fish entrees were overcooked, drying out what should have been remarkable...
