Great location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect Stay for Wedding

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a home at Skytop without being in the hotel or in their cottages, this is absolutely the one. We had a family member getting married at the resort but we all wanted to stay together. We ended up having 12 adults and five kids with plenty of room. This has a Nice rustic, cozy atmosphere and you cannot get any closer to the resort and amenities. We played golf, we walked to the clubhouse. We walked to the wedding. We walked to the pool. We walked to dinner. We could not be more satisfied with our stay. Thank you so much. We are actually considering this as the small annual family reunion site after our stay due to the space and all of the activities surrounding the area!

Christmas Week Family Time

  • 5 of 5

This cottage, located on the Skytop Property, provided our family with a wonderful opportunity to spend Christmas Week together. There was ample room for our party of six adults and seven children, with even a bedroom left over!

We arrived late on the evening of the 26th due to hazardous ice conditions. To our surprise and delight, a lit and decorated Christmas tree awaited us. That set the tone for the remainder of our stay.

The home has a large, wood burning fireplace which we kept lit for most of our stay. (Make sure to bring your own wood). The kitchen has a small table, and working appliances, and there is a dining room to seat the family for meals. There is a master bedroom and three additional bedrooms downstairs, plus three bedrooms upstairs.

The pictures of the cottage do not give justice to the size, which is more spacious than one would think. Even in the dark of winter, it never felt cramped.

Skytop Lodge is about a three minute walk away. Tubing and horseback riding are within walking distance as well. The whole Skytop Property is actually within walking distance if you are up for it, but there is also a free shuttle available which runs regularly.

The Skytop Lodge is a wonderful place during the Christmas season. Our family took full advantage of all they had to offer, and the cottage was the perfect place for our family to stay.

Skytop house

  • 5 of 5

This large house is the closest house to the Skytop lodge. It takes about two minutes to walk to the lodge. Great house. Plenty of space for large families or even a couple of families. Really nice setting and the house has everything you need for a short or long visit. We have gone two years in a row and are planning to go back again. Perfect location to all of the activities in the area. The lodge offers free transportation to/from the house to Skytop events. Highly recommend.

Extended family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cottage in August and had a wonderful time. The house is much bigger than it seems and easily held all 14 of us. The different rooms being individually air conditioned was great since so many of us liked to sleep in different ways. (the colder the better for me). The location of the cottage is amazing as it was a five minute walk to the main lodge where you can do any activity you can imagine. SkyTop is an amazing property and being able to rent a house instead of multiple rooms for the extended family made this vacation dream a reality.

Extended Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Cottage 45 July 2016 and had a fantastic time. This is our second time staying at the cottage and it won't be our last! There is room for everyone and all of the rooms have window AC units so that makes it very enjoyable during the hotter summer months. We enjoyed having morning coffee on the screened in porch trying to decide on what we wanted to do for the day. Everyone can find something to do with all of the activities available...we spent a lot of time at the pool relaxing, taking great hikes - West Rim Trail and Indian Ladder Falls, cooking awesome meals and I think we participated in all of the activities on the lawn behind the Lodge which is a very short walk from the Cottage and we enjoyed skeet shooting this year, with some of the younger of our crowd going 3 times!. The Lodge is a special place that takes you back so make sure you spend some time enjoying it, check out the activities board, stop in the Tea Room (great shakes!), the Tap Room (casual, great food and drink), the Library Lounge or just sit on the large back porch in one of the rocking chairs and enjoy. The Cottage, the Lodge and the grounds/activities always make our time there so enjoyable and relaxing...we really feel like we had a vacation!!...if you can't tell, I would highly recommend staying here!

What makes this cottage unique

Closest private house to the Skytop's main lodge.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Shannon – Thank you very much for opening your Skytop cottage to us. It was perfect. We had a blast. The lodge is amazing to look at and wonder around. Once we found our way around we found plenty to keep us busy. We took your advice and hiked out to the Indian Ladder Falls with the whole family (Ages 3 to 72). Later in the afternoon my husband and I and our 7 year old son did the hike to Leavitt Falls – what a sight, after all that rain the falls were massive. Very cool. The dog sleds were closed for Spring cleaning – we’ll have to check that out next time.

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed ourselves. The house was immaculate and had everything we needed. Our favorite room was the dining room with all the windows, we had great meals and played games and had a lot of good laughs around the table.
