COTTAGE WITH SUMMERHOUSE AND POOL

Skytop Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3+ Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This vacation cottage located in Skytop, PA, is perfect for a romantic weekend getaway or a fun-filled vacation with the family. Located within walking distance to The Skytop Lodge, in the heart of the Pocono Mountains, a four season vacation region, this home's charm is evident in the craftsman details of it's 1930's origin. The original hardwood floors and heart pine moldings remain while the kitchen and baths have been refurbished with designer details. While the home's interior features are nostalgic and cozy, the outdoors explodes with a profusion of perennial flowers, herbs, and orchards which surround the 'lounging spaces' in the back yard, the summerhouse and pool.

The Skytop area in the Poconos has everything a top-notch vacation region sports, from fine restaurants and golf to ski slopes and antique shops.

My husband and I purchased this home when our daughter was an infant in the early 1990's. We were both professionals in the residential building industry, so our 'sweat equity' and contractor contacts have paid off over the years. We were able to do many designer upgrades to our home. My husband and daughter, Hannah, planted the apple, plum and peach orchards and I have a green thumb when it comes to flowers and shrubs. We enjoy all the fruits (literally) of our labor each harvest season. This home has been a 'labor of love' and we are pleased to share it with you!

Annie purchased this cottage in 1991

Our home has been a primary residence until early fall of 2010. In order to keep it 'in the family' and available for future family vacation traditions, we decided to share it (and, of course, some of the costs!) with vacationers who will enjoy it as well.

Napping on the couch in the Summerhouse, walking barefoot from the bedroom to the pool, showering outside (hot water!!) while looking at the mountainside, bicycling on the quiet backroads, walking in the snow around Skytop Resort, sledding down the hill in the side yard, and cross-country skiing!

This cottage was the perfect place for my family to stay at during our recent family reunion. From beginning to end, the owner was so helpful and gracious. The cottage comfortably housed 4 young children and 5 adults (including two rental cribs). And the living room and dining room worked well for the size of our family too. The bathrooms were very modern and it was quite helpful to have two full bathrooms to accommodate us. Saturday evening, after our large family dinner at the Skytop Streamside Lodge, we invited other family members back to the cottage. The summer house area was perfect for this. Some of our extended family members stayed at Skytop Lodge. The cottage we used was conveniently located to Skytop Lodge - comfortably within walking distance.

RELAXING AND PEACEFUL

  • 5 of 5
The eight of us stayed 3 wonderful nights while visiting the Poconos for our Son's wedding. The house was adorably decorated with antiques and curios throughout. The grounds were artfully manucured and there were many spots throughout the property to gather and visit. The pool was refreshing and relaxing, loved the deck with nice deck chairs and recliners. This is a great place to stay for a Skytop Lodge wedding or just to escape for a long weekend of peace and tranquility.

WEDDING WEEKEND AT SKYTOP

  • 5 of 5
We rented two homes for my daughter's wedding at Skytop Lodge. This house was our home away from home for the weekend. Working with the owner was fabulous and she went out of her way to make our stay comfortable. The home is in walking distance to the lodge so we didn't need to worry about driving. The home is comfy and the outside area is just beautiful. The highlight of our weekend was hanging at the pool for family time before the wedding ceremony. It was restful, quiet and far better than any hotel room. We all slept like a baby. Our wedding weekend was wonderful but being at this house made it magical! We are so grateful and promise you that you will feel the same way. Thank you!

HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful time we had during our stay at Annie's cottage. My family from out of town and my immediate family had the comforts of home while attending my son's wedding at Skytop. We loved it! It was honestly the best time with family. I only regret not having more time to enjoy it more.... two days was just not enough. Everything was clean and immaculate. It felt very inviting and comfortable. Thank you Annie. We would definitely come again but stay longer.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT IN EVERY WAY

  • 5 of 5
Another review posted describes our stay perfectly. We would add that Annie left some home-grown lettuce and onion in the refrigerator which was delicious, and talk about details - there were even sticks prepared for s-mores by the grill. You won't be disappointed in your stay at the Cottage!

SOOTHING...CHARMING...RESTFUL...COMFORT

  • 5 of 5
From the swing on the front porch, we watched a family of wild turkeys stroll by and deer graze. From the comfy lounges by the pool we watched the water sparkle. In the rainfall shower we felt the tension drain... This was the perfect place to calm jittery nerves before our daughter's wedding at Skytop on August 4th.
The cottage was immaculately clean. There were enough towels to accommodate everyone in our party with tons still left after four days-this includes my daughter who always finds it necessary to use three towels each time she showers! The beds were wonderfully comfortable with extra pillows and blankets if needed. The bags of ice in the freezer showed just a part of how the owner tried to think of every detail to make the stay at her cottage stress free. Each bathroom had amenities in it-just in case you forgot to pack your shampoo.
The kitchen had every kind of cooking necessity I could ever imagine. The coffee maker was fully stocked with everything needed for the morning caffeine jolt and I used the dishes in a rental unit for the first time in my life before washing them...they too were sparkling clean.
Each room in the cottage offered something different-too numerous to list here. Come check out the old books to read, the pretty antiques displayed in the cabinets, and all the old architectural design elements for yourself-you won't be disappointed!
The grounds were beautiful and well cared for-with flowers blooming everywhere. The surrounding area is also gorgeous-it is Skytop...
If I had to say one negative thing, it would be that there are not enough pictures on this site to do the cottage all the justice it so deserves!
Come to magnificent Skytop, enjoy nature and civility at its finest-and by all means, stay here.

Owner's Response: Oh my gosh. How incredible that someone enjoys all the things I do at our cottage. Thank you so much for the kind words. You make it so worth it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
All the best,
Annie
