A Luxury Hotel to Explore

Skytop Lodge is an exceptionally beautiful location and the perfect place to stay while you explore all that the Poconos has to offer. The Inn at Skytop is a favorite destination. Reimagined in 2020, it is a private hotel that features 20 rooms each with a private balcony (so you can take in the beautiful sunrise and sunsets with your loved one). Select from several styles of rooms, all well-appointed with sweeping views of the golf course and surrounding landscape. The bathrooms are relaxing with jetted tubs. There’s even a gas fireplace for those cool evenings when you want a cozy atmosphere.

Enjoy a Meal at Lakeview Restaurant

Lakeview Restaurant is an onsite destination like no other. When you step into the space, you will have floor-to-ceiling windows that open up to views of the surrounding landscape. It’s certain to be a memorable occasion.

Enjoy some appetizers and drinks al fresco here, perhaps around the fire pit. Sample our signature cocktails and enjoy Mediterranean entrees. For couples, ending an evening at Lakeview Restaurant is perhaps one of the simplest and yet most romantic experiences. Afterward, sit back and simply talk or watch the sunset. Sharing a few memorable meals like this together is always something you’ll want to do during your trip.

Hiking for Couples – A Time to Come Together

The Poconos presents so many opportunities to do things together with your significant other. However, at the heart of this is hiking. Getting outdoors, being immersed in the environment, and having time to yourself really matters. The good news is that when you stay with us at Skytop Lodge, you have access to some of the best hikes for all skill levels.

In fact, when you take our guided walk with our Naturalist (if you would like to), you have the ability to see some 175 species of birds and wildlife throughout the area. You’ll learn about the otters in the waterways and the bobcats that seem to be hidden in their habitat. These hikes are informative, but also restorative. You’ll feel better by spending some time outdoors surrounded by nature. We encourage you to check out one of these options:

  • Lake Trail – This is an excellent option for a hike that is about 2.1 miles. It takes you to the Lodge and the lake. The views of West Mountain are stunning.
  • Stable Trail – Another fantastic option for couples is the Stable Trail. It’s just a half of a mile long, though there are some slopes and switchbacks. It takes you up Dutch Hill Road where you’ll see the lake, Camelback Mountain and the Delaware Gap.
  • Leavitt Falls Trail – There’s nothing more inviting than a waterfall and that’s what you will find on this 1.2-mile trip. It takes you to Leavitt Falls, and though there are some slippery areas, it can be a rewarding experience.

There are many other hikes as well. These are some of the most scenic experiences you will have. For couples, these hikes are a good way to build teamwork and open your mind to something other than a smartphone.

Take on Some Adventure

Skytop Lodge is one of the best family resorts because of the Adventure Center. There are so many activities to engage in, depending on what time of the year you decide to visit Pennsylvania. For couples, it’s a fantastic experience and well worth a trip on its own. Here, you will find ways to challenge yourselves, work together as a team, and just blow off some steam. Some of the activities that may be available include:

  • Rock climbing
  • Treetop adventure course
  • Archery Tag
  • Snow tubing in the winter
  • Skiing in the winter months

Which of these experiences would you like to do with the special someone in your life? Embrace one or two of these activities and book them for your next visit with us.

Enjoy a Few Meals Together

Skytop Lodge offers a number of restaurants and dining locations. We encourage you to check out each of them when you visit us for a trip. Stop in at Windsor for a fabulous breakfast – enjoy it right in the garden if you like. The dinner meals here are fabulous and all locally sourced from farmers and ranchers. If you want a fast and comfortable lunch, check out The Taproom. Enjoy the perfect glass of locally brewed beer with your meal.

At the end of the day, nestle into the Library Lounge. It’s the perfect place for a savory drink in a more intimate gathering. The bookshelves here are lined with numerous pieces and the historic photos on the wall will give you a taste of the area’s history. Enjoy a glass of wine and conversation as you wind down for the day.
