We stayed at Skytop Lodge during COVID and had a wonderful family vacation. Our room was in the recently renovated Inn which is where the golf center is based. Our room was a nice size just have a few issues to fix such as a toilet not mounted to floor so could not really use it. But if some construction issues fixed rooms will be very nice. They have a snack bar available with limited menu and hours. Also the Lakeside restaurant had just opened back up weekend we were there. The outdoor patio with food and drinks was wonderful great service. It is small so with Covid only a few groups can be accommodated but wonderful. The food and service in restaurant unfortunately was not great. I think since just opened have some kinks to work out. Hopefully will get better. The food and restaurants at the main hotel were fantastic. We loved all of them. Great service and food at each of them . Really happy with moving dining outdoors as much as they could . We felt all staff was very good at COVID wearing masks and following guidance. Fellow guests were also very respectful we were there over Labor Day weekend and had no problems. We had so many things to do. We loved our nature walk / hike with Rick. He was fabulous with every one in the group. I have never been interested in hiking and he made nature just so interesting. Loved it plus the views and trails stunning. We kayaked & golfed and lots of pickle ball. Prices very reasonable . Our favorite turned out to be ax throwing. It was a blast. We have adult kids. The couple who run it make it so fun. They have you games / competitions against others which was fun. Having adult kids the only thing we wish they had was some type of music etc. at night to hang out and listen to. Might be because of Covid no bars. But missed evening things to do after dinner. They did have s’mores and outdoor movie! Only other comment is closed the beach on Monday Labor Day during afternoon to do a lifeguard training. That was a bad time to do it in middle of day holiday weekend. Do it early morning or evening end of day but not prime time during people’s vacations. Wasn’t happy to not be able to use beach that afternoon. Said would take only a couple of hours but seemed like a really poorly planned time to shut it down for life guard training! A great place for a family vacation!

From start to finish, we had a great experience. The grounds were beautiful, and well-kept. The most impressive and rare part of all was that I left a pair of expensive earrings in the hotel room. I called up a few days later after realizing they were missing and they immediately transferred me to security who not only had them, but shipped them back to me overnight. They wouldn't even let me pay for shipping! Again, so impressed by the stellar customer service and integrity of the staff.

This was our first visit but will not be our last! Everything was just lovely - from the grounds, trails, activities and room. We stayed at the Inn with a view of the stream that was very scenic and peaceful. The staff at the Inn were terrific - especially Chris and our housekeeping group. The Lakeview Restaurant had just reopened and we enjoyed 2 excellent dinners there - you would never have known it was opening weekend! Thumbs up to the Taprrom for casual fare - soup, burgers & pizza were all tasty. The breakfasts in the Windsor were very nice, also. We enjoyed our naturalist tours with Rick - very informative. The trails that we hiked/ walked were well maintained and scenic- especially the waterfall! Evenings by the campfires were fun and the musician outside on Sunday evening was excellent! I would buy his cd!! All in all, it was a great escape and we thank everyone at Skytop for making it perfect!

This is a first-class, family-oriented resort with no shortage of things to do. The lodge was built in 1928 I believe, and it is quite literally something from a different era. We stayed there (for the 2nd time) in August 2020, during the Covid pandemic. I thought they generally did an excellent job of managing the need to keep the guests and staff safe, without going overboard. Pretty much all of the facilities and activities were open, with social distancing precautions of course. For the room itself, we had a "Junior Suite" in the Lodge, which had a King bed and a pull-out sofa. It was about the size of a standard hotel room, but was plenty big enough for the 3 of us. The bathroom appeared as though it had recently been renovated, and everything in the room was very nice, with the exception of the lamps next to the bed, which were falling apart and had no electric outlets built into them. My only complaint with the room is that it was attached to both adjacent rooms on either side (with locking doors of course), and a lot of noise traveled through those doors. You could hear almost every word that your neighbors said if they were talking loudly. Fortunately, the people next to us quieted down at a reasonable hour so it didn't keep us up, but I imagine this could be a problem at times. We ate at most of the dining areas in the resort (the Lakeside restaurant in the Inn was closed for renovations during our stay). The Windsor is the main dining room, and has a very old-school feel. In fact, the last time I stayed here several years ago, a jacket was required for men. I don't know if the policy has changed, or it was just because it was the summer, but it was not required this time. There is a dress code, however, though it is not strictly enforced. It was not uncommon to see people wearing tee shirts, sandals or hiking gear, for example. It was also not uncommon to see kids running around during dinner, and we had to ask the manager to tell people at a table near us to stop blasting their electronic devices. So, I think they need to decide if this is a formal restaurant or not, and make their guests comply with whatever decorum would be expected for that type of a restaurant. The menu is extremely limited for dinner, with only 6 entrees.Overall, the food was decent. Our room rate included breakfast, which was a different story. It's mainly geared around a breakfast buffet, which was not very good. Due to Covid, they have a server walk around the buffet and give you what you want, one person at a time. Because there was only one server most of the time, a line formed and it took forever. Also, virtually all the food in the buffet was cold. They also have a breakfast a la cart menu, which i usually ordered off of and was good, however it only has egg dishes - omelettes or 2 eggs with sausage/bacon, etc. I think they would be better served to expand the a la cart menu and have more options that can be made to order. We also ate at the Taproom for lunch one day. It has a limited menu - burgers, sandwiches, wings, pizza, etc. - but everything we had was good. Due to the lack of variety, for 3 of the nights we had dinner off the resort. There is a town (Mountainhome) nearby that has a handful of restaurants. The Pour House was quite good if you are looking for a bar & grill type of place with good food. We participated in a lot of the recreational activities that they offered. I played the golf course, which was nice. We rented a canoe ($15 / hr) to go fishing on the lake a couple days. We did the Adventure Course (ropes/zip lines) - Cory, our guide, was fantastic. Played archery tag at the adventure center, ping pong in the game room. My daughter went to the beach on the swimming lake every afternoon and loved the inflatable obstacle course. The hiking is fantastic - quite literally some of the best I have seen in the state of PA. There are easy hikes and difficult hikes, multiple waterfalls, and hikes that are so steep that you need to use ropes to pull yourself up (Stable Trail leading up to an awesome overlook, the trails at the bottom of Leavitt Falls, and the trails at the top of the Indian Ladder falls). Service across the entire resort was generally fantastic. Be aware that there is a significant service charge added on top of the room rate, and many activities are in addition to that, so not cheap by any means. Overall, it was a great stay and I'm sure we will return.

The Good: - Awesome trails with strollers including a waterfall trail - Beautiful property for great pics - Clean room at the Inn (and newer) - Lake was the highlight for the kids - Food was really good but expensive (we did take-out the entire time) - The market has milkshakes! The BAD: - NOT COVID FRIENDLY. 80% of employees didn't have their mask on properly or for their entire shift. At the market and Callaways (these are dining areas), mask was below nose. At the lake, employees would take off mask. The cleaning lady DID NOT HAVE A MASK ON! Not even around her neck/chin. That's scary. - The night before our last day, our room (110) had a LEAKING CEILING in our bathroom the whole day! We told the host to make sure if someone comes to fix it, to properly put their mask on (as in over their nose too). The maintenance man had it below his nose and was in our bathroom for a good amount of time. We were annoyed that we had to have someone come in to fix the ceiling and we were potentially exposed. When we check-out all we got was a "sorry." We shouldn't have had this issue at all. - There was many lines to get into the lake, and the guests were NOT social distancing or wearing masks. Employees did NOT ask everyone to put on masks or social distance. This is not safe. - They said Lakeview restaurant would be open during our stay. It was not and it's still in construction I guess. I just hope they make some MAJOR changes related to COVID-19 safety. DO not come if you're worried about the virus.
