Expensive with very little to show for the cost. They charge a 22% facility fee so you can empty your own garbage, make your bed, call for clean towels. Rooms are dark and the furniture can best be described as shabby chic. In the Windsor dining room the service was perfect, unfortunately you cannot get your $30.00 steak grilled as requested. The excuse always begins with "Covid" . Enough with the covid excuse. It has been 12+ months . For a 4 diamond resort you could do much better.

Reservations were in, money was paid, excitement was building and we were already making our breakfast and dinner reservations. We tend to try to find places with lots of activities and most importantly a pool. Partially a preference and partially a necessity as our second child is most comfortable in a pool due to an underlying disability. Very disappointed to learn today that the pool would be closed for cleaning the week that we will be visiting (which is only a little over a week away). Our only option was to cancel and request a refund. I generally don't write these reviews and no way that the staff could have understood our personal situation but the general lack of accountability is what resulted in this review. They took reservations and at the time and I suspect did not have plans to clean the pool and had those plans been in place they should have communicated at that time. My interaction with the staff was "you would like to cancel? OK no problem you will have a refund in ten days". Not even an attempt to put themselves in the customers shoes who now has to re-plan a vacation that is a little over a week a way. I've been to resorts where the pools are painted overnight with little to no customer impact and this establishment is shutting down a full week for cleaning. Although it does not affect us personally they also informed me that my refund would take 10 days to process which within that time we will be traveling to a new destination. If a family did not have the means to float a new trip it could be a problem. Its just bad customer management. On the bright side perhaps we dodged a bullet and this wasn't really the place for us from the start.

Sky Top Lodge is our home away from home. Our children, 5 years and 3 years, love it and always ask “can we go to Sky Top?” I love the charm and history of the hotel. The staff are friendly and welcoming. From the moment we arrive Robert is at the front to welcome us when we pull up in the car. Rey also greets us with a smile and takes our luggage. My favorite place is the lobby with its dark mahogany wood and wood burning fireplace at one end. There are plenty of couches to sit, read and have a coffee. The rooms are clean and beds comfortable. We spend most of the time wondering around the grounds outside. The kids love to just run all over. Between the pool, arcades, crafts and other activities there’s enough to keep them busy and tire them (us) out. After all the play we enjoy the hot cocoa and cookies served in the lobby. We love the marshmallows by the fire after dinner. The front desk gives you sticks and a bag of marshmallows. Tip - bring some Graham Crackers and Hershey chocolate to makes s’mores. Lastly, our favorite meal is breakfast. Fernando, our waiter, is great. He’s so nice and always quick with our coffees/ pastries. The kids always laugh with him. What makes this place so special is not only the amenities and hotel but the people who work there! Will definitely be back.

I was very excited to get away on a mini vacation with my family. We had a few dissapointments along the way. I reached out about 1 month before my trip to schedule dinner, activities, etc. I emailed back and forth with a concierge (Tiffany). She booked a dinner for us which was great but I also asked to book skiing, snow tubing and skating. I was told skiing was not open until President's weekend so she did not book skating nor snow tubing at that time and recommended I reach out to book a few days prior to my trip. I emailed her again 4 days before my trip and after a bit of back and forth I was unclear of what reservations were confirmed. For the next two days I followed up and receive no response from her. I then called to confirm the reservations I had 1 day prior to my trip and was told that I only had a ski lesson booked and the person i spoke with (Tara) was surprised it was still in the system as a deposit wasn't recorded. At the tail end of my conversation with Tiffany she mentioned a deposit was required for the ski lesson but did not ask me to call in to make the deposit. I expressed my frustration to Tara who then had an events person call me the following day who booked me for snow tubing luckily. Prior to that Tara informed me that reservations for activities should really be requested via phone. At no point did Tiffany suggest I pick up the phone and call nor did I think I needed to. In this day and age a lot can be done via email so I thought I was taken care of. Fast forward, we arrive for our weekend getaway and the staff is very friendly from the bell men to the front desk staff. We checked in early (WIN) and relaxed a bit before our snow tubing activity. The snow tube staff were wonderful! They all were very friendly, welcoming and made the activity super fun for the family. We then chose to go swimming but the pool was full and we had to wait for a few people to leave before going in which was fine. We were able to get a dinner reservation at the Tap Room for 8:30pm. The atmosphere was casual, the staff was friendly but the food is pretty bad. We ordered a ceasar salad and marguerita pizza to share for me and my husband and my daughters ordered off the kids meal. Theirs was ok but ours was not very good at all.

Needed to get out of the house and Skytop was definitely the right choice. Even though PA shut down indoor dining, we had an excellent filet mignon dinner from the Windsor dining room delivered to our room! Walked on all the beautiful trails and then enjoyed hot chocolate and cookies in the Pine Room while we relaxed near the fire with Christmas music playing the whole time. Beautiful Christmas decorations are everywhere. Watched from several different views as a huge snowstorm fell all around. The breakfast was also so good and delivered to our room. We had the breakfast sandwich on a bagel and my husband said it was the best breakfast sandwich he ever had. That's saying a lot because he's from New York and he always said the best breakfast sandwiches only came from New York! If you have a choice of staying home or coming here to Skytop before or after Christmas definitely come to Skytop. We are totally refreshed and ready to go back to the grind but we will be back very, very soon and will be telling everyone about this oasis from the outside world.
