Breakfast and lunch was good. Dinner was not. My husband order beef Ribs and it had too much fat on it and appeared to be from a baby calf. I ordered lamb and it was not good. My husband order a cheese cake ($48.00) for my birthday and it was overpriced. Most of the event, activities cost were not included. There was a cost for the following; table hockey, billards, and rental fees on canoning, fishing, montain biking and they even charged for hiking up the hill (so sad). The room was small and the entainment was awful-only three elderly people attend the night event. The swimming pool was nice as by four and eight year old enjoyed the warm pool and our credit card got over charged (I have to call for them to make the correction). I wouldn't recommond this place to anyone as the place is beautiful but the cost is over prices. The recreational activities were short and most involved a fee.
I recently stayed at Skytop in the grand lodge with my wife and two children. We had a wonderful weekend chock full of things to do. I cannot believe peole can come to a place like this and not find something to do! We went skiing, skating, sledding, cross-country skiing swam in the pool (while I relaxed in the hot tub! I'm not as young as I used to be!) The food was fine. Well prepred, good selection and plentiful. I am not sure what they serve for weddings as one reviewer wrote but remember weddings are banquets. We got ample choices on the menu for all of our meals, which were included in the price. We got the Family Fun Package which also included our recreation. It's a bit pricey but at the end of the day if you had to pay for all you get I think you'd wind up paying more. We stayed in a mini suite and our two children slept on cots. The room was fine. It was clean and had new furniture. You have to remember this is an historic building and some of the things are old but very clean and well kept. If you want modern you'd be fooling yourself by booking an historic hotel. We love historic hotels. They are a throw back to the way it used to be. Something we all could use right about now! I would recommend Skytop to anyone especially outdoor, active families. We are thinking about going back in the Summer. With more of their land (I think they have 5,000 acres) available there must be a ton of things to do. I'll let you know.
The only thing that we didn't like was that they had a rude employee who was a life gaurd in the summer and he worked in ski lodge during the winter. This employees name was Matt something I think. He was very rude to my family both times we went. I think skytop needs to maybe get rid of him
We went to the skytop for a wedding, and we left starving! The only appetizers that were offerred were cheese and crackers, (not even high end cheese and crackers) and veggies and ranch dressing. They had a tray or 2 of appetizers that they walked around with, but when they got to us, the tray was empty, and they did not bring out more. When the lousy cocktail hour ended, the Matre D sent us in to the Board of Directors meeting instead of the wedding. When we got downstairs, we gave the waiter $10 to get us some drinks. He came back with the drinks, and a $56 bill. he said the open bar was not open right now, when we didn't immediatly pay, management came over and demanded the money, we paid so as not to create a scene at the wedding. The waiter should have told us that the bar was not open yet, and that we could either wait for the bar to open, or pay for the drinks. We would have waited. When the meal came, everyone cleaned their plates because there was not much food, and we were all starving. Everyone ate the cake and bread because we were so hungry. My mother was a banquet waitress for years, and when I told her about the cocktail hour, she was schocked.
The veiw was beautiful, the place itself is beautiful, but I would never recommend anyone to have their wedding there.
We had a great time at the wedding, as the Dj was great, but we looked for a diner on the way home!!! It seems that the Skytop expects everyone to pay for the view, and they won't notice that there was no food. Well, we all noticed.
i have been to Skytop three times and have never been disappointed with my stays there as the rooms are elegant,clean and comfortable the meals are exceptional,their main lobby is a great place to relax and read a book or talk with friends especially in the winter when the fireplace is lit.The grounds surrounding the Main Lodge are beautifull and meticulously maintained.I would book through yahoo since the rate through the lodge will cost much more.
If you're looking for a beautiful place to stay this is it! I've stayed here many times over the years. I have alwasy found the staff to be plesant and helpful. The bellhops are awesome and so fun to talk to. THe rooms are beautiful and if you have a few extra minutes, take a trip away from the main elavator. There's the original down at the other end of the hotel, past the Pine room. It's a little spooky, but worth the trip.
Yes, the prices have gone up but this resort is still worth it. The pools are great and going at Christmas was fun. There was a gift exchange and a Yule log. SUmmers are better, though, because you can go swimming and hiking. THey offer a range of activities through the year, such as guided hikes, hayrides, etc. that should not be missed.
Also, don't forget about the theme weekends. I enjoyed the Poe weekend myself, because I am a hug Edgar Allen Poe fan. Give it a try. I know you'll love this place as much as I do.
The best things at the Skytop Lodge: the pools:awesome, the rooms: devine, the gameroom: it's all about the activities, and the gardens, patio, and lobby: spectacular and magnifecent. The feeling of the Skytop is full of country and relaxation and having friends and family around you. You can enjoy everything- just you wait and see!
