Charming, well decorated two story cottage, built in 1928, on the golf course of exclusive Skytop Lodge. Within walking distance of the Lodge, the Inn and all amenities, the home was acquired for family use, and is now offered to discerning guests. Care has been taken to preserve the character of this roomy, yet cozy retreat. Numerous areas to lounge and four generous bedrooms and four baths assure your family a comfortable stay.
Holiday weekends carry a 4 night minimum.
The first floor has two living areas, each with fireplace, dining area with windows overlooking the golf course, two kitchens, a full bath and a very large master bedroom (king) with in suite bath w/ shower. A large screened porch allows out door dining and lounging.
The second floor has three bedrooms (one king, one queen and two twins) and two hall baths, both with tub/showers.
Many new appliances, full sized washer & dryer, and fully stocked kitchen that can be filled with your choice of goodies.
This is more than a 'house rental'; it is your second home on a resort, where you can do as little or as much as you like.

Instead of beach every year it was a real nice change. So much to do. Great location.
We rented this home as a place for the family to stay for my daughters wedding at Skytop Lodge. The home is the last one on Fairway Drive just before you get to the main entrance to Skytop. The home is extremely comfortable with two working fireplaces, the back porch invites you to sit and relax for hours.:)...the heat worked like a charm too as the temperature began to drop during our stay. Perhaps the best surprise we had was within 30 minutes of checking in, the power went out in our area do to a car hitting a power pole on the main street...for us, the lights flickered for a second and the automatic generator kicked in and we were the only ones with power for the next 8 hours...very nice addition for that unexpected emergency. The bedrooms are comfortable with adequate storage/closet space. You are literally 2 minutes from he Skytop Lodge so it was very convenient for us. We are looking to return just on our own in the future!
We were part of a two family trip to this lovely cottage on the grounds of the exclusive Skytop lodge. We chose Skytop because it is within 2 hours of NYC, and between our two families there are three teenagers who needed more than sitting at a lake, reading a book. The cottage is on the 15 tee of Skytop's golf course and because it borders the Lodge's property, we were able to use all of the facilities (swimming lake, boating lake, pools, game room, archery, tennis, crocquet, hiking trails, spa, driving range, golf course, Orvis trap shooting,restaurants, etc).We did bring bikes (recommended), fishing rods, and beach chairs and used them all. We had plenty to do throughout the week, with enough activities to keep everyone happy.
The house itself was perfect. It is clearly used for private ownership with everything being of the highest quality. The kitchen is small but perfectly outfitted with everything that we needed (even a lemon squeezer for the peck of lemons I brought!) Each bedroom was beautifully laid out, and had reading lights on both sides of the beds (being a reader, this is a big deal!). There are 4 bathrooms which completely worked with 7 people in the house. And best of all, the enclosed porch looks out onto the back yard and golf course. It was really perfect.
Although we are not golfers, we had a wonderful time, as there's so much to do. I would highly recommend this house for anyone who wants to enjoy the benefits of Sktyop lodge (and the Poconos) but not pay the expensive daily rates. It's a really lovely home.
