Plan a Fall Weekend Getaway from New York

Oct 22, 2018

Itching to get out of the city? Tucked high up in the mountains, there’s a 5,500-acre outdoor playground waiting for you. Hear that? Yeah, that’s the trees talking. They’re telling you to come to Skytop Lodge.

If nature’s calling doesn’t convince you to book a room ASAP, maybe the fact that it was just named in Men’s Journal as one of the 16 Awesome Trips You’ll Actually Want to Take This Fall will. It’s clear you’ll find what you need here. So much so, you might be tempted to go country for good.

When planning a weekend getaway from New York, you’ll want your itinerary to pack a punch and also allow time for relaxation. We’ve put together some tips to make the most of your time as you reconnect with what matters most.


Tip #1: Say Hello to Mother Nature   

There’s a distinct difference between walking along city pavement and hearing leaves crunch beneath your feet. The sounds of nature will replace the routine noise of home as you’re greeted with a crisp hello. It’s an absolute must to breathe in as much fresh air from the Pocono Mountains as you can. You’ll feel yourself getting lighter and calmer by the hour. Sink into that feeling and take it back with you as a little mental escape when you need it.


Tip #2: Do Something Adventurous

Skytop Lodge has something for every adventure level. A quiet and easy trail hike. Archery Tag, also known as “dodgeball with bows and arrows.” Kayaking on the glistening lake. Take your pick. To say we specialize in adventure is an understatement.


Tip #3: Get Some Personal Care

Relaxation looks different for everyone. If you’re into skin and body care, treat yourself at the Spa. Stimulating, healing and innovative spa services will detoxify, rejuvenate and relax. Just need some simple solitude? Take your morning coffee on a nature walk right outside your door.


Tip #4: Check Out Delaware Water Gap

If you’re interested in taking a day trip, head to the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area about 45 minutes from Skytop Lodge. The epitome of the fall season comes to life here. This family-friendly activity will have you appreciating all that the Pocono Mountains have to offer. You can drive through, or get out and go see the waterfalls.  


Before you know it, you’ll feel reconnected with yourself and each other. Ready to plan your getaway? Book your best Fall Getaway and save, plus receive up to $100** Resort Credit.
