This year, my family stayed for a weekend in January, in the FULLY renovated cottage. Skytop has been a family tradition for years, in which we started staying in the summer months, but for the past several years we decided to come for both the summer, and winter. Our trip nothing short of excellent. From the time you pull up... More

First off, the staff was quite accomodating to myself and my family. The only rude person I encountered was a woman (I believe her name was Dora) at the front desk. She was absolutely miserable. I made a comment about her to my husband and another employee remarked back to me, "Try working with her everyday." I think she should... More

We spent New Year's Eve and New Year's Day at the Skytop and my overall rating says it all. I was going to write a concise review on this site and send a letter to Douglas Hustad, President and General Manager of Skytop along with a copy to Historic Hotels of America. In the meantime, I completed in detail the... More

I booked my weekend through booking.com on December 30th 2014.I was under the impression we were staying in the lodge. It took us over 2 1/2 hours with traffic when we pulled up to the lodge. The semi frozen young lady who I guess was the bell girl told me I was at the inn. I left my boys (husband... More

They can't be serious! Their claims to be "luxurious, exceptional, elegant, and having unrivalled old-world charm" is so misleading! I am in the travel industry, and by no standards does this lodge come even close to their claims! What really annoys me, is not only the false representation of their level of accommodations, but the price tag to go with... More

This was an "awesome" trip. My wife and I stayed here from Friday January 9th and unfortunately checked out Monday January 12th. What a way to celebrate her birthday! The property itself sits a top one of the most beautiful locations you will ever see and the lodge itself is breathtakingly Victorian, that is for sure. It is like stepping... More

My family of 30 have been spending a holiday weekend at Skytop Lodge for almost 10 years. We like the lodgie feel, the activities for our family, and having our meals included. The lodge itself is old but classy and could never be duplicated with all the woodwork in the main lobby. The huge oriental rugs give the great room... More

A beautiful old resort in the mountains, Skytop's location, is the main reason to visit. The hikes to 2 different natural waterfalls, golf, lake swimming, and other outdoor activities can't be beat. The difficulty is trying to maintain the small intimate feeling in such a large resort. The food and service are quite good, but inconsistent. The remodeled cottages are... More

This was one of the most impressive vacations spots I've ever been to. The service was out of this world (on a par with The Greenbrier in its hey day). The food was spectacular. the hotel was all dressed up for Christmas and couldn't have been any cozier. Highly recommend going on one of the many hiking trails too. Rick... More

Skytop is surrounded by extraordinary beautiful nature. The lodge itself has a castle look as well. The interior, however is old and not well maintained. There is a difference between antique looking furniture and simply old worn out furniture. Although it is understandable that Skytop is historical and wants to keep the “old” look, there is no reason to keep... More
