My husband and I spent two days and one night at Skytop Lodge, where we found ourselves amid the peak of fall foliage in late October, surrounded by the most beautiful hues of yellow, red, and orange, reflecting off the lake at Skytop. An encircling walking trail presented a pleasant option to stroll around the lake with many picturesque photographic opportunities.

Our room sat above the 18th hole at The Inn at Skytop. A wrap-around deck style balcony stretched across the length of our room and the rest of the second floor rooms, facing the golf course below.  Our favorite feature, our own in-suite gas fireplace, offered instant warmth and true ambiance. The room also featured a flat-screen television, full size closet, loveseat, desk, and bathroom.

Customer service at Skytop Lodge surpassed all expectations. The Inn’s Windsor Dining Room overlooked part of the lake, and the wait staff truly aimed to please. The cuisine selections matched the upscale atmosphere of the lodge, and truly satisfied the palate. The food alone is an exceptional reason to visit the Skytop Lodge for a romantic weekend getaway.

On the lower level of the Lodge at Skytop, a tea room offered a quick bite and a variety of hot and cold beverages. While it was nothing glamorous, the turkey clubs we enjoyed with chips really hit the spot for a late afternoon lunch.

Skytop Lodge also offers a lunch buffet in the two main dining rooms, with such selections as fish, pork, chicken, and more, with dessert options and hot beverages as a finishing note.

All in all, we enjoyed a completely amazing time at Skytop Lodge. The atmosphere, the food, the activities, and the customer service all contributed to a perfect romantic anniversary weekend getaway.
