Time travel really is possible at Skytop Lodge. After crossing over a beautiful lake bridge, my husband and I were transported back in time as the sight of this magnificent structure came into view. In this beautiful mountain setting, we were immediately treated to quick and efficient service from the friendly front hotel staff. Walking into Skytop is like walking into the Roaring 20's. The hotel lobby is absolutely breathtaking with its vintage furniture, massive fireplaces, original wood decor and grand piano; all just waiting for Jay Gatsby and Daisy to enjoy. Our room was clean and spacious with a big closet, full length mirror (great for dressing for dinner) and a newly renovated clean bathroom. The bed linens could have been a little newer, but the bed was comfortable and clean. The breakfast buffet is simply amazing. There were made-to-order omelets, Belgian waffles, pancakes, large assortments of pastries, different hot meats and juices. I was just out of shoulder surgery with my arm in a sling and the wait staff carried my plates of food for me. The wait staff in the dining room was attentive and friendly. The food in the Windsor dining room, Tap room and Tea room is first class. All the food was prepared and presented wonderfully. We had large portions offered at all of our meals. Complements to all of the chefs. We took advantage of the many activities the hotel has to offer. Of special note is that the many children who were visiting were not glued to their phones--they were playing games, both inside the lodge and outside on the beautiful grounds. We especially enjoyed the "horse racing" venue. We were in a room full of enthusiastic guests and we cheered for our "horses" as they came down the stretch. The young man who was doing the calling for the horses was fantastic We also enjoyed the outdoor pool, which has beautiful landscaping around it. Speaking of this, this resort has spectacular landscaping full of gorgeous flowers on the grounds. We enjoyed long walks around the massive grounds and the fun evening bonfire complete with toasting marshmallows on sticks. There is even an old fashioned ice cream parlor which serves up great mid-day food if you need a snack. Don't miss the original elevator, complete with call bell and sliding brass door. I can see the great Gatsby emerging from Skytop Lodge and being very pleased. As we left, the wonderful bellman helped us with everything we needed. The hospitality at this resort is wonderful and as my husband and I left, we exchanged wistful glances when we drove over the beautiful lake bridge that took us back into the present.
