We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful resort. The place is super clean and pretty. There are several restaurants to eat in. The pools were so nice. I really can't say anything bad, there are activities some you have to pay extra for. All good a bit pricey but worth it.

My husband & I met our adult kids & grandkids here for a couple day’s getaway. Everyone was so nice, especially Danielle at the front desk. It was disappointing that the lake was closed to swimming temporarily. We were still able to kayak, use the heated pools, zip line, hike trails, & visit the butterfly house. There are other activities. We chose these. It’s a beautiful property with a relaxing vibe.

Its a great place for a winter escape we actually were there winter of 2020 but the app wont go that far. The only downside was the housekeeping. Overall it was amazing. So many activities and great people that work there. The property is homey and warm. Im definitely going back.

Our misadventures began as we checked in. The check in person gave us our room keys in a folder marked room 221. Up we went with our suitcase in tow, tried the key several times without success when a woman's voice from inside the room expressed alarm at our efforts. Back down to the lobby - turns out room 221 was not our room and without any apology we were handed another folder with the proper room number. We get into our room in the old Lodge which room has a very large bed and very little room for anything else. No chair to sit on, no desk. The bathroom has a very slender rectangular shower in which I can barely wash my feet because while I am slender and just over 6 ft, there is barely enough room for my to bend my knees to reach my feet. I can't imagine if you are slightly larger how you would use this shower... Night one ended for us around 11. We were awakened at 1pm by shouting in the adjoining room. Two parents were arguing about something with an adult child. After 1/2 hour, I called the front desk but no one answered. So adding to the legend of ghosts prowling the halls of the old Lodge, I trudged down to the front desk in my pjs, rang the desk bell and finally someone appeared who then called security to address the situation. After this experience, we were offered a move to one of the cottage rooms but we declined since we already had activities planned with others at the time of the offer. Night two ended for us around the same time, only this time right as we were turning off the lights, a loud vacuuming sound came from outside our door. Throughout the night, we heard a softer sound but not enough to keep us awake. Turns out a pipe had burst and we had heard a dry vac cleaning up the water and a dehumidifier to get rid of the dampness. So how come we still have 4 stars - the grounds are beautiful. We were there for a meeting with three of my wife's siblings and their spouses and we had plenty to do. A walk around the lake, kayaking on the lake, clay shooting for some, the wildflower walk (a shout out to Rick who led the walk and is responsible for the spectacular wildflower meadow- we learned so much that we want to try at home), toasting marshmallows by one of the fire pits and swimming in the pool. Plus the food was quite good. While the Taproom was decent (not so much the server who started surly and went downhill from there - despite a request to honor an avocado allergy, the server huffily replaced the fish tacos which came out with avocodos). But the Lakeview restaurant dinner was quite good (including moroccan chicken, goat cheese and asparagus flatbreads and cavitelli with lemon, asparagus and ricotta) and that server (Rachel) did an outstanding job. And another shout out to the ice cream (from the local dairy Mannings) in the downstairs Market - in a fresh baked waffle cone - I might go back just for that. Breakfast is a strange set up. Unless you are a breakfast buffet person (and I am not), your only option are some overly sweet baked goods at the upstairs Market. The music on Saturday night got us all dancing. Just sitting on the porch rockers looking over the flowers and lawns was a great way to relax. So yes, 4 stars. PS, management did take $200 off of our bill for our misadventures.

I booked a Premium King Garden Room on the website (had my choice of that or a King Inn View) to surprise my husband for our 15th wedding anniversary. I received the confirmation a few minutes later. The next morning I received a voicemail saying there was a problem with my booking. When I returned the call I was told that they had no Premium King Garden Views available and they said they could move me to a Cottage King. While she was explaining the situation I went on their website and tried to make a booking for the same dates. My choices were a Premium King or King Inn View. I asked the CSR why, if there were no premium king room available on those dates, could I still book one. Also why weren’t Cottage Kings available when I made the true reservation and still weren’t available? Her answer was because there were technically still Premium Kings available, but they would need to move me. She ignored the question about the King Cottage. I initially said yes to the Cottage King, however, will most likely cancel. If their reservation system is this bad before the visit, I fear how bad the actual place is like. Certainly doesn’t seem like a place to celebrate a wedding anniversary.

Shocking experience at this expensive hotel… paying $600+ per night to stay at this place and me and my dark complexion wife can’t get any service at the restaurant in the lodge (Taproom). We waited for 30 minutes… all surrounding tables were being serviced fine … after 30 minutes I went to the bar and complained…still nothing… finally we gave up and had to drive to a local bar (PourHouse) just to have dinner….UNBELIEVABLE!!!! Pour house is great…highly recommend for any non-white guests at Skytop Lodge

My sincere apologies for your unfortunate experience at the Tap Room. Skytop Lodge welcomes guests from all backgrounds and ethnicities and I can assure you that racism, bigotry and discrimination of any kind has never and will never be tolerated at Skytop. I will be further discussing this issue with our Team. Please reach out to me directly if you'd like to discuss. Best regards, Jeff

Skytop is a great place for a special occasion celebration. Its quiet enough in early June(minimal kids) Ample activites( fee for most) and the resaurants have great service and food. Be wary of The Library lounge and expensive cocktails. Rabbithole rye old fashion was 29$ yikes! Not justified. All in all a good experience in lodge accommodations and Windsor dining. Trying Lakeview tonite. Review to follow.

We stayed in one of the rooms in the Inn. It was large and had a small porch overlooking the stream and a fireplace. Although you had to walk, drive or take the shuttle to the lodge, it was a great place to stay. The main lodge was absolutely beautiful. Make sure you climb to the observation tower and explore the full lodge, so that you know what is available. There is an indoor and outdoor pool, a recreation area with video games, a pool table and an air hockey table, on site restaurants and bars, lawn bowling, corn hole boards, bike rentals, etc. Unfortunately, when we visited the outdoor amenities were not available because of the season (but for the 8PM smores around the campfire that we missed both nights). We did, however, hike the lake trail and the trail to the waterfall. Both were easy walks in a very scenic area. If you take the correct path after viewing the waterfall, you will come across a creepy cabin in the woods (which we did not walk towards) and an area that clearly used to be where the dogsled and dogs were kept. We ate in both the Windsor (in the temporary space) and Lakeview. At the Windsor we had 2 entrees and 1 dessert. Both courses were absolutely fabulous. At Lakeview we had an appetizer, 2 entrees and 2 desserts. The appetizer and the entrees were again absolutely fabulous. The desserts less so, but still good. I would say that the drinks on the menus are a little lacking in both locations though. The margarita was so-so and the house sangria at Lakeview tasted like grape juice (with no fruit in it). However, one night we went into the bar and asked the bartender (Naya - who was amazing and filled in all over the restaurant from what we could see) to make whatever drink she makes best and she made the most amazing gin drink (and I do not like gin). It was so good, I asked for the recipe! We also had some coffee (which was so-so) and some baked goods from Corner Roast. The bagel and biscotti were delicious and the woman behind the counter advised us that all of their baked goods (including the bagels) are baked on site. Aside from the obvious room and food being great, all of the staff were very friendly and very helpful. Everyone we ran into went out of their way to make you feel welcomed and important, despite the fact that we could clearly see that the restaurants and probably the other areas of the resort were short staffed. Whatever management is doing here is clearly benefiting them in the form of very hard working and customer service oriented staff. I can't wait to go back during the summer/fall season to try out all of the on-site amenities and have another great weekend! Thanks, Skytop Lodge!

I was married at this hotel 23 years ago so I do have a soft spot for the hotel. Overall, my recent two night trip with my husband was very nice. Our room (404) was small but clean. Keep in mind though that the bathroom is tiny and there are very few drawers available for clothing since the dresser and entertainment center/refrigerator were all in one piece of furniture. We had a few minor maintenance issues in our room that I brought to the attention of the front desk. We enjoyed drinks in the Library Bar the first night then ate dinner in the taproom because the Lakeview restaurant was not open until Thursday night. I had a delicious salad and grilled chicken sandwich. The portions were very generous. My husband had a tuna wrap and he said it was ok. For the second night, we went to the Lakeview Restaurant. The food and waitress service were great. The bartender could have been a little more pleasant when I asked for a suggestion of a fruity cocktail. There were no other people in the bar so she certainly wasn't busy. She seemed a bit surprised that I asked and really did not come up with anything overly interesting. I had the salmon and my husband had the gnochi. Both of us thought the entrees were great and really enjoyed the baklava cheesecake. I did notice that the hotel had made quite a few great updates since we last visited in 2018. However, I think the lobby definitely needs a refresh and the entertainment center and bathroom door in my room were definitely showing their age. Even though everything was not perfect, the great things about this hotel including the food, grounds, indoor pool, back porch, etc. will keep me coming back.

Cons: Rooms....very small but since we were very busy its only for sleeping....the beds are full size..no queens. Food...we had bad experiences with both restaurants....under cooked chicken wings...nachos that were atrocious. The breakfast buffet was subpar...cold potatoes and only one omelet station. Pros: lots and lots of activities. Concierge was very helpful. Rooms were clean and beds were pretty comfortable. The market had great coffee and breakfast items...stick with that for breakfast. Wish the beds and rooms were roomier .
