My wife & I had a wonderful weekend at Skytop with my college buddy and his wife. The king room in the main lodge was spacious and very comfortable. The food was delicious. Our server the first evening was a bit aloof, but the next two days our new server, Camille, was fantastic. She remembered little details, like my wife preferring skim milk in her coffee, and brought it without us having to ask.
The highlight of the weekend, hands down, was the harvest lake stroll, with food and wine tasting stations set up around the perimeter of the lake. I am a big wine enthusiast and I was very impressed with both the quality and quantity of the wineries from all over the world that participated.
The golf course was a bit beat up, no doubt from the large groups of wedding guests that have no clue about golf etiquette. My buddy & I got out early for 9 holes on the back and breezed through the course. Those who were playing 18, however, were in for a long round due to the abundance of really lousy golfers.
Some areas that could use improvement were the difference in Skytop being rated very good rather than excellent, such as the reservation system and the check-out process. It appears that Skytop uses two different reservation systems which are not integrated and they assign two different confirmation numbers to the same booking - very confusing. Also, it was not possible to book the AARP rate on-line, I had to call for that. The check-out process requires the guests to wait in a long line to receive a print out of the bill and to hand in the keys. Not very efficient.
