Going Green At Skytop

A member of the National Trust Historic Hotels of America and Green Hotel Association, Skytop Lodge sits atop 5500 acres including deciduous and evergreen forests, scrub oak forests, rocky outcroppings, a rhododendron swamp, a glacial bog, and small grassy meadows, which have all been held in conservation since 1928.

Skytop Lodge received the coveted PMVB Green Tourism Achievement Award for our conservation and ecological efforts here at Skytop Lodge! With a history tied to nature, Skytop has always made efforts through awareness and preservation programs, and working with some of the country’s top ecological organizations.

How We’re Green

  • Recycling of plastic, glass, cardboard, aluminum, paper and composting
  • Guest linen re-use program based on guest preference
  • Preservation of nearly 4,500 acres under Pennsylvania “clean and green program” in essence, land that dedicated as agriculture and not developed
  • Conscious purchasing efforts of recycled products whenever possible
  • Employment of a Naturalist and Historian to assist us in the preservation of Skytop
  • Partnerships with Salvation Army to donate materials for reuse instead of waste/landfill
  • Use of green materials throughout resort-recyclable mattresses, carpet etc.
  • Use of LED lights throughout resort to reduce electricity usage
  • Replacement of windows with thermopane low-E
  • Installation of steam boilers to reduce fuel consumption and improve efficiency
  • Installation of a new irrigation system in our golf course to improve efficiency and also reduce water consumption
  • Install of digital programmable thermostats to improve energy efficiency
  • Installation of computerized heating and cooling throughout the property for programmable efficiency

Clean the World Organization

Skytop Lodge is proud to announce that we have joined the global hygiene revolution by partnering up with Clean the World, an organization that helps save lives and preserve our planet by recycling the used bar soap and bottled amenities left behind by guests and distributing them to those in need. Hygienically recycled products are distributed to relief shelters within the United States and to 100 countries around the world. With a history tied to nature, Skytop will continue to make efforts that enrich and strengthen our beautiful natural surroundings for generations to come, all the while helping those less fortunate.
