With over 5,500 striking acres to explore, Skytop Lodge is the ultimate destination for your luxury vacation in the Poconos. From a round of golf on our award-winning course to fun and playful outdoor adventures, everything you need to create your perfect escape is In Our Nature. Located high up in the Poconos, Skytop Lodge is where you’ll find the best resort activities, including our exclusive Archery Tag and Treetop Adventure Course, idyllic local dining, and spacious, cozy rooms of all kinds.

If you’re looking to plan your next getaway in the Poconos, Skytop has exactly what you need to leave your worries behind. Here are a few reasons why Skytop Lodge is the perfect place to book your next adventure.

1. Skytop Is Stuffed with Activities

How will it feel when you successfully scale a mountain before rappelling back down? What about when you tackle the treetop adventure course high above the ground? Skytop offers hiking adventures, paintball, ziplining, and archery tag, plus a huge pool where everyone can go to have some fun.

Not everyone is going to want to push their limits, but those who have been stuck inside their homes for months might see this as an opportunity to get out and feel that adrenaline rush again. It takes coordination and perseverance to make it through an obstacle course or learn to shoot a bow-and-arrow, and each new activity allows you to grow and step outside of your comfort zone.

The mountains are a great place to put aside your fears and start embracing the risks and wonders of nature. Everything at Skytop is meant to engage and create lasting memories from the moment you walk through the doors.

2.  Unique Lodging Opportunities

In the Poconos, you’ll find locally grown ingredients from nearby farmers and ranchers, unique craft wines, and stunning views to keep you company as you enjoy a meal with friends and loved ones. Here are a few dining options to consider when staying at Skytop Lodge.


Farm-to-table in the Poconos is not a trend, it’s a way of life. Skytop’s own garden, as well as local farmers and ranchers, provides the ingredients for Windsor’s inventive and inspired traditional cuisine. Windsor is where guests and locals alike gather for breakfast, lunch, and dinner to enjoy a menu that changes according to the seasons.


The views at Lakeview do not disappoint. Guests look out at one of Skytop’s lakes and award-winning golf course while enjoying contemporary Italian cuisine. Lakeview’s menu offers something for everyone, including daily happy hour on the patio.

The Taproom 

The Taproom is a perfect place to gather with friends and family for great food and even better memories. Try some of the local craft beers on tap, rare liquors and an array of award-winning wines by the glass which pair perfectly with a regional, bistro-style menu.

4. Time for You

At Skytop, you’ll find various ways to treat yourself to a little luxury. When your days are filled with so much hustle and/or bustle, a day to relax in the middle of the mountains is just what you need to start feeling it all melt away. Or if you’re feeling particularly motivated, try a game of golf on a mountain-style track that will keep the ball rolling over hills and along tree-lined fairways. This challenging course is a fun twist on the standard rounds you’re playing at home.

Whether you choose to blow off steam with a massage, on a treadmill at the gym, or through a round of golf, the goal is to start detoxing from all the physical and emotional strain that you put yourself through on a daily basis. From pollution to a lack of sleep, your body can only handle so much. Breathe in the clear mountain air and take in the beauty around you, so you can start getting back to the finer things in life.

5. Comfort at Its Finest
