I took my 2 adult daughters here for a New Years escape. My youngest recently turned 21, so we visited the Library Bar as soon as it opened. Bookcases, fireplaces and Booze, how could you go wrong? We arrived January 2nd so the Lodge was still decorated for Christmas...so Beautiful!! Hallmark movie stuff folks! We enjoyed walking around, taking in the multitude of trees and pleasant fireplaces. ALL of the staff was extremely nice, from the shuttle drivers, to the Concierge, to the dining room servers! We stayed 2 nights so we were able to enjoy all the restaurants on site, all very good to excellent. Our room was clean and warm & cozy. We missed the Axe throwing (only available on Friday & Saturday) so we tried our hand at riffle shooting, turns out my older daughter is a sharp shooter! We all enjoyed the visit and are planing to return. Highly recommend.

Very nice, elegant, vintage feel and well-kept facility. Staff was friendly. Only problem--NO HOT WATER--yep, nothing that could ruin a room, a stay and a vacation more than that--I mean, for $1,000 a night--you should EXPECT that--DON'T STAY IN TH E MAIN OLD LODGE-- NO HOT WATER! And the pipes busted all over the lobby when we were there--and we had no showers or hot water (not sure about the other buildings--I would ask if I were you--but don't stay in the main lodge--just don't--old everywhere)--I'm back 4 days later to alter the review--no hot water for 3 days and they charged us $1,600 for our stay AFTER the hot water main broke under our room and deluged the entire lobby. Yeah. Sort of a slap in the face.

Customer Service: We visited SkyTop on Christmas eve for the first time. The decor, grounds and customer service did not disappoint. It's classically and beautifully decorated for the holidays and made for a great escape from a long day on the couch. Worth the trip. But the star of the show was the staff and they are the reason we will be back! The host at Windsor restaurant was warm, welcoming and witty. Our server, Alex, was attentive, genuine and just fun. He took pride in his work and it showed (can be rare these days). The GM, Jeff Rudder is a wonderful conversationalist that really seem to take pride in making everyone feel welcome and heard. He made his rounds with guests and gave fun area tips and advice. Solid leadership that has clearly trickled down to many staff members. The doorman was also a kind and patient soul. I can't say enough about the customer service. We look forward to returning in 2022 to explore all that Skytop has to offer. Side Note: The food at Tap House was anything but typical bar food. Everything from Nachos, to soup and even the vegetarian pasta was full of flavor. We will definitely be back and look forward to trying the Library Room and coffee shop next time. Cheers and Kudos to everyone on the staff who made our holidays sparkle just a little bit more.

My wife and I visited Skytop lodge about 2 years ago in the summer. We stayed in a king size bedroom on the 4th floor at the lodge and really enjoyed our stay. The room was cozy, clean, and had the authentic lodge in the woods feel. We recently decided to go as a family and rented one of the cottages. (Cottage 45 was horrible). Big mistake. I will list all of the pros and cons of our stay. There are a lot of pros however our decision to rent the cottage led to more cons. Pros Large space Close to the Lodge Can control your own temperature Functional appliances: gas range stove, large refrigerator, new microwave & toaster oven The lights work Good parking 3 bathrooms 3 large bedrooms Large living & dining room Easy code access Cons Alex the owner was a bit rude and did not greet me when we arrived to ask questions. He did not want to talk but instead repeatedly said come back at 3 pm. He also asked to verify my name twice. All of the bedrooms smelled old & musty like wet dog or old and wet material, all of the towels & linens smelled, and there was dust, dirt and garbage swept in corners. (Seemed like a rushed job of last minute cleaning) The oven wasn't clean at all. I was told there would be an extra bracelet for an additional guest. There was no extra bracelet and our guest decided to leave before nightfall. The tea kettle wasn't clean for years Not sure if the cottage was cleaned for many years The small bedroom near the kitchen (bed was hard and the bathroom faucet sprayed every where. The walls were marked, scuffed and dirty The water pressure in the house was low and the water was warm but not too hot. The Master suite had a very hard & uncomfortable bed The linens all have an old damp smell The small bedroom with the ensuite had scuff marks on the walls and dirty walls No lan phone to call the main lodge Ran out of toilet paper on the 2nd day Small tolet leak in the master bath **Only 1 con at the lodge. The bar tender at the Library bar at the main lobby was rude and we witnessed microagressions from her. My family and I are Latino & black. We are all different shades of brown. We were 5 -10 minutes late to a bartending class at the Library bar at 4 pm on Monday 11/8/21. Mike the concierge (who was great) walked us over to the bar. There were only 2 people sitting and enjoying drinks as they were deep in conversation with the bartender. We waited patiently to be acknowledged as Mike asked the bartender if we could squeeze in and attend the bartending class. The bartender intentionally or unintentionally replied to him" well that's tough because the class is over" Mike apologized to us and we said its ok. The bartender decided to make a shocking comment " you folks work here don't you?" We were confused and I said no we are guest and showed her my blue Skytop bracelet. She then said we'll "you look like the type of people who work here." We were all in awe. The bartender and the couple sitting at the bar were all caucasian. The bartender (very un-enthusiastically said " we'll if you really want to learn how to nake a drink ok. We apprehensively decided to sit down at the bar. The bartender continued to engage with the couple and ignored us for a few minutes. At that point we all looked at eachother and felt unwelcomed and decided to leave. Later we ran into a Manager at the lodge named Connie who apologized on behalf of the Lodge and said we are so sorry that you experienced that.

I was very disappointed to read your review and certainly wished you had a better experience while enjoying the amenities at Skytop Lodge. I will be following up directly with those individual team members. That being said, the accommodations you reviewed above were not at Skytop Lodge nor part of the Resort. Skytop Lodge is not responsible for the conditions of the homes that are privately rented by homeowners, therefore please relay your disappointments to the homeowner directly. All the best, Jeff

We just spend the weekend at Skytop for a brief get away without our kids, unfortunately our experience was sub par, especially when compared to similar priced getaway destinations driving distance from NYC. Below is a breakdown of our experience to hopefully shed light for future travelers and management on our specific experience. Food: overall disappointing, our orders were frequently wrong or forgotten with multiple errors over the whole stay (e.g. tuna steak came well done instead of rare, chicken wings came out under cooked, potato salad potatoes were raw, dinner bread was stale, osso bucco was underwhelming all around to name a few instances). front desk/ concierge: from the moment we arrived, it was apparent that this was the key factor that had most to improve on. We arrived at 6pm, no bellhop, no valet (understood w/ COVID times), no guidance what so ever when you get out of your car. The front desk doesn’t guide you to where elevators are/ where your room is, they were unhelpful welcoming you to the property and giving a general overview, and were unaware of basic questions like where is the bellman or where to park. When asking about dinner options were advised to talk to the concierge, who was actually hiding under the desk to take what seemed like a personal call. Shortly after we were met with a bit of destain when talking about a lack of diner seating options since no reservation was made in advance. We called ahead nearly 2 weeks in advance and were not told about the need to reserve dining options, not advised of the hourly activity options and therefore were unable to partake in many of the weekends options. Staff: overall everyone serving at the bars & restaurants were pleasant and attentive, however may have been lacking some training since errors were frequent and constant. Our bartender didn’t know her own wine list, our waitress was quickly overwhelmed when several tables arrived at once and others forgot whole part of our order completely. Ambiance/ experience: the main lodge, grounds and inn are all charming and rustic, everything you would want from this sort of experience. However there was a suggested dress code that was clearly not enforced what so ever. We experience people wearing sweat pants, tshirts, hiking gear and hoodies… definitely detracting from the finer dining experience. There were also children running around the dining room, and families were clearly seated all throughout the restaurant instead of separated from couples/ adults looking for a less of an Applebees type of night. Facilities: The main dining room was charming, however could not regulate temperature & humidity (not sure if it’s over the pool) and the smell of fish wafted from the entrance as you crossed the threshold. There were dead birds out front of the window at the pub style lunch spot and the lake front dining experience could use update but overall seemed the nicest of the options. Hotel room: what you would expect from an older hotel. We stayed in the main lodge, rooms were compact, but clean and charming and cleaning staff was very friendly and on top of things. Beware that TVs are logged into people accounts who stayed in your room before you… not my concern, but I feel bad for those whose accounts are logged in still. Ground & outdoor activity: this lived up to the hype and was probably the sole redeeming factor of the stay. Fields, trails, activity areas are well kept and sportsman guides were wonderful. I hope this review doesn’t necessarily deter future guests, rather sheds light on areas that need to be improved to compete with weekend escape destinations for families or couples that are at similar high price points. Although my wife and I are not planning on returning we didn’t witness many families enjoying themselves and assume we may just have had a “perfect storm” of mishaps one after another.
