What a GREAT Vacation!

I travel extensively. The combination of terrific golf facilities, dining, outdoor activities and lodge make Skytop best resort of its type. Skytop deserves its Four Star Rating.

We enjoyed the picturesque house located on the 5th tee. The bedrooms were surprising large. The house combines old-world charm and need to have high tech amenities (e.g., broad band internet and flat panel TV). The house was clean and well maintained - very important considerations for my family.

We really enjoyed ourselves and plan to be back next year.

Great location

I stayed here with my family in August and we had a fabulous time. The resort is really fantastic. In the past we stayed at the hotel, but the cost is about $500 per night per room and this year we had a bigger group so we thought we would stay at a house on property. Every generation really enjoyed themselves. The kids learned to play golf, I spent time at the spa, we hiked, biked and swam as a family. We all loved the live entertainment at the hotel each night.

The house is a really nice. It is one of the original cottages on the resort, and is the closest private house to the lodge. The cottage is wood shingled, and has nice wood floors and wood trim throughout the house. The house was very clean when we were there. The kitchen floor is old, but clean, and I understand it is being replaced soon. It has 7 bedrooms. 6 are really quite large (as large as most hotel rooms) and one that is a bit smaller but it still has a full size bed in it with a dresser and a chair. The kitchen is on the small side but has all new appliances and nice cabinetry. The dining room seats about 8-10 people and the living room has a really nice fireplace and a big plasma TV with digital cable over it. What was so surprising to us was how big all the bedrooms were. When you email the owners, they will send you a brochure with lots of pictures of the house.

The house is definitely really nice but if you are planning on spending a lot of time cooking or have a large group that wants to hang out at home, you may want to have a house with larger public areas. If you want a nice house in a great resort, close to everything and have bedrooms to spare than this is a great place for you. Even though we were a big group we found ourselves spending more time hanging out together at the lodge and doing activities than at the house. I would absolutly recommend this place and have already told several of my friends about it.

Roomy and convenient

Six adults and four small children stayed here for the weekend. There was plenty of room, yet it was quite cozy. Enjoy the proximity to Skytop lodge (an easy walk, even in the cold and snow), as well as the use of Skytop facilities. While the adults were busy cooking, unpacking, packing, the kids enjoyed a number of videos. Our three year old is still talking about the large selection of children's movies! There are a number of signs in the house guiding you through the heating procedures/rules. The house was clean and well stocked. Bring your own bath/hand soap. This is an older home and so you will hear the pipes creaking especially at night. We had a good laugh describing the noises, but we were so tired at night from a day outdoors, it really didn't keep us awake. I would definitely consider staying there again.

Family Vacation

This is the second time we visited Skytop and the first time at this house. The location of the house was perfect for access to all Skytop lodge activities. It was a perfect family vacation with plenty of space for ourselves, 4 grown children, their spouses and 3 grandchildren. The house was very clean, rustic with a great dinning area. The kitchen is small but clean and adequate. We cooked one dinner and 4 family breakfasts there. Our grown children enjoyed the sky top lodge spa and I recommend dinner at the lodge.

Skytop Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 24, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
A niece from New York (we are all from Massachusetts) was getting married at the Skytop Lodge on the Weekend of October 5/6 2013, and the expense of a stay at the Lodge for our family group of 10 would have been astronomical, but we found Skytop Cottage and jumped at the chance to stay in a cozy looking place that would sleep all of us under one roof at a substantial savings.

The accommodations here at the cottage were great - very rustic and charming, but with modern conveniences (the wide-screen TV and Wi-Fi connection). We loved the quiet and almost private feel of the area, and the rooms and sleeping quarters were spacious, clean and met all our needs nicely.

As an added bonus, on the first evening, we sat out on the porch and got to watch a small herd of deer across the street as they grazed in the open field...the deer were then shortly joined by a flock of wild turkeys, none of them seemed to mind that we were taking pictures - as long as we kept our distance.

All in all, not only would we stay here again, we will recommend to friends and other family members that Skytop Cottage is a destination worth traveling to - even if it is only for a weekend get-away, no special occasion needed!
