A grand old lodge in the Poconos
We have stayed there twice and been very happy with it both times. The lodge is a throwback to an earlier era, with a huge lobby and hundreds of acres of grounds. The staff was friendly, and the hotel offered a ton of things to do for both us and our daughter. The restaurant was good - meals are included in the price. We particularly liked the fact that they seat you at the same table for the entire weekend, so we got to know some of the families at nearby tables.
Unique Quality: Our favorite thing about Skytop are all of the activities that they offer for families. You can swim in the lake or in their indoor or outdoor pools, row a boat in their lake, play golf or tennis, go hiking, or just relax and read a book in their library. In winter they also offer ice skating, a small ski hill and a toboggan run. For kids, they have a day camp, a playground, a miniature golf course, and activities such as face painting and hayrides. We especially liked the Saturday night dinner dance, where all of the guests get dressed up and dance to a swing band.
