Planning a Special Mother’s Day Weekend at Skytop Lodge

Apr 27, 2023

In existence since 1928 as a favored destination resort in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, Skytop Lodge is the perfect answer to the question of “how to treat mom this Mother’s Day.” This iconic resort represents the epitome of cultured early 20th-century elegance, natural beauty, service and appeal.

Why not honor that special woman in your life with a visit that truly expresses how you feel this Mother’s Day?

A variety of special events are planned for the weekend of May 12-14, to honor mom in style. Each mother will receive a fresh orchid corsage, and we have planned a delicious brunch buffet in the resort’s exquisite Windsor Dining Room on Sunday.

Additional planned events include a floral arranging session in our flower shop, kids and parent painting class, cash bingo games, a masterpiece painting class with complimentary Mimosas, and greens fees for a complimentary round of golf for mom, with one paying round. Note that some activities involve a charge, but other special events may be added!

Choose Your Style of Accommodation

Guests may choose from a variety of room accommodations including luxurious rooms in the historic main lodge, one of 20 reimagined rooms or suites complete with fireplaces and balconies at a secluded Inn, nearby Cottage kingsize and twin-bed doubles, and contemporary streamside or golf course cottages designed to accommodate up to five guests in spacious comfort.

Whether you plan a family getaway complete with extended family and lots of grandkids to honor the family matriarch, or a quiet weekend escape for a first-time mother, the beauty of the surroundings and the luxurious ambiance of this noted mountain retreat represents the perfect choice for a special holiday treat for your loved one. Come with a crowd, or come as a couple, and your stay is sure to be one to remember.

Although Skytop Lodge is historic, beautiful and traditional, there is no sense of outdated “stuffiness” or prescribed propriety here. It is a modern, up-to-date resort on par with the best destination resorts in the country, and has consistently won raves from guests who travel from near and far to enjoy it.

Skytop Lodge, in addition to offering great value for vacation stays, is a highly-respected site for family reunions, business meetings and conferences, weddings, and other notable celebrations.

Activities and Events to Satisfy All Interests

Activities abound in all seasons, from winter skiing and hiking to spring and summer boating to autumn golf getaways. Design and construction of the championship golf course at Skytop commenced prior to the construction of the Inn. The course, now public, continues to challenge and delight players of all skill levels.

The resort also features an Adventure Center with many scenic ziplines, a treetop course that offers exciting vistas from rope bridges, ladders and rope lines located up to 50 feet above the natural terrain, a paintball course, walking and hiking trails, fishing, boating and marksmanship events.

Mom and family can take solo walks through the property, or join a tour with a trained naturalist to view the area’s wildlife, birds and natural vegetation. A visit to Skytop Lodge has the potential to become a dynamic family bonding experience, an educational opportunity, and a relaxing vacation for mom all at the same time.

Enjoy Dining Options and Special Events

No two days have to be the same when you book a vacation at Skytop Lodge. The resort offers optimal room for personalization. Take your choice:

Windsor Dining Room

The mainstay of Skytop dining has been this traditional dining room, where guests and locals flock to enjoy fresh farm-to-table fare prepared by a master chef of inventive cuisine. It is full of variety and presented to please kids and adults alike. From shrimp on a skewer, or mac & cheese for the young set at lunch, to fresh salads and loaded burgers for adults, the formality of the setting does not intrude on the delight that accompanies dining in style. Former dress codes have been relaxed, even for dinner.

But that dinner, whether a stay is booked with or without a meal plan, may be the highlight of mom’s weekend! She may find it difficult to choose from among the taste-tempting starters, salads, sides and delicious entrees featured on the menu.

Lakeview Restaurant

Enjoy Mediterranean-inspired selections for dinner, along with a view of the water, at this contemporary golf-course dining room. An outdoor patio with a fireplace invites lounging over a cocktail at sunset or moving to a seat at the indoor bar prior to ordering your meal. Lakeview is open Monday through Thursday for dinner.

Weekly Special Events

From crafts classes to hayrides and campfires, tea and cookies, or culinary demonstrations, history tours or guided hikes, ping pong tourneys or charades — or simply late wake-ups and pampering by the family, your mom will be enchanted by the experience.
