Although their website is good, it does not completely do it the proper justice for how elegant this Lodge is. When you start up the driveway the stone building and architecture is so impressive. You are greeting by the Valet, the Bellman and the Doorman. The lobby is exquisite with a fireplace, elegant furnishings, large windows, and doors that lead out to a porch with rocking chairs. The entire layout of the Lodge is perfect.
The front desk is wonderful and check-in is a delight. We arrived early and our room was ready and to our surprise, we were upgraded to a mini-suite. Our room was 338 and it was roomy and very comfortable. In addition, it had 6 lovely windows with great window treatments along with several books for your reading pleasure. Cleanliness excels in this fine establishment. Everything was so clean and fresh which added to your total comfort. You knew by this time that you were in store for an outstanding time and experience at the Skytop Lodge.
The Windsor Dining Room is comparable to a very fine New York City restaurants. The tables are so nicely arranged with beautiful linens and fine china and silverware. The staff is so attentive and the food is fabulous---not like most resorts that give you "cafeteria quality". The food preparation, quality and taste is impecciable.
The grounds, lake, activities, including dog sledding and carriage rides were beyond expectations. This is above and beyond the usual inclusive Resorts that you stay at. I would compare our stay to a Fairmount Hotel with meals and amenities.
The large spacious indoor pool, children's pool and hot tub were lovely. As you opened the door, you found these lovely lounge chairs with a towel rolled on it---very impressive. In addition, they had a young man who kept the pool in immaculate condition and slip-free. They had a lifeguard who was exceptional at her job and made the level of the pool area enjoyable for adults and children. There was no loud screaming, running, jumping, diving or splashing, yet everyone was able to enjoy the pool area at any age.
They have wonderful indoor activities along with Card Rooms, Library, Tea Room, Tap Bar, Gift Shop, Flower Shop and Spa again with an outstanding staff.
The evening entertainment was fabulous and everyone who was there had a great evening.
This Resort is a must as it is beyond any resort you have every visited. We highly recommend the Skytop Lodge for any age group, and we will revisit it again and again. You can truly believe my review as we are people who do an extreme amount of traveling both for business and leisure. We have been very fortunate to have visited some of the most fabulous places in the United States and all over the World, but our stay here was truly wonderful.
Thank you, Skytop, for a fabulous visit.
