4 Reasons Why You Should Spend Halloween in the Poconos

Oct 15, 2018

There’s nothing like the hauntingly beautiful lakes and forests of the Pocono Mountains. Spending Halloween in the Poconos surrounded by nature is a unique way to appreciate everything you love about the fall season. Harvest festivals, corn mazes, and kid-friendly activities right outside your door are all possible when you stay at Skytop Lodge.


Here are four reasons why we think you should spend Halloween with us in the Poconos.



  • Treat Yourself with a No-Trick Treatment



Prefer the supernatural side of Halloween? Indulge in the healing powers of crystals with a Crystal Healing treatment at the Skyview Spa. No tricks, this treatment employs crystals and stones combined with Reiki energy healing techniques. Specific crystals and stones are used to correspond to each chakra. Each crystal has a different healing vibration. The stones attract positive vibrations that attract positive events. Each crystal will then be attuned to your personal energy to continue your experience at home. Out with the bad, in with the good.


  1. Go on a Haunted Family Nature Hike


Put on your storytelling hat and let the kids use their imagination with a haunted nature hike. As the leaves crunch beneath your feet and the owls hoot in the distance, keep your eye out for Halloween-themed findings. Can you spot a cloud that looks like a ghost? Who will find the oldest-looking tree in the woods? I wonder who else has walked this trail before us? We recommend the Trout Stream Trail or Pine Trail for this fun family activity.  


  1. Spooky Corn Maze at Klingel’s Farm


Known for its spooky corn maze, Klingel’s Farm is all about fall fun and it’s only a 45-minute drive from Skytop Lodge. The 11-acre maze is different every year, and there are “corn helpers” nearby if you need help navigating through. Plus, head to the pumpkin patch or produce stand to do some picking. The fun lasts through early November. Check the website for schedules and pricing.
