Discover The Experience of Skytop Lodge

Skytop Lodge

My family and I recently returned from Skytop Lodge and I cannot say enough about the awesome days we spent there. Skytop Lodge is a stunning piece of history that sits upon 5,500 majestic acres atop the picturesque Pocono mountains.

Although this resort is only a 1.5-hour drive from our home in the Catskill Mountains of Upstate New York, I never heard of it before this summer. Even though I have traveled to the Poconos more times than I can count, this was an entirely different experience. From the moment we arrived, until the moment we left, we could not look at the old world charm of the stone lodge without being in awe.

Vacationing at Skytop means taking a step back in time. While they have all the modern conveniences we have come to rely on, it is the 4 pm afternoon tea time you look forward too.

Tea time is served in the main lobby or Pine Room and features an assortment of large, fresh-baked cookies, ice-cold lemonade and an assortment of teas. Once you have made your selections you can choose to enjoy your treats in the main lobby or as we did sitting in rocking chairs on the porch overlooking the grounds.

My boys loved the little chipmunk that decided to join us for tea and cookies. He was very polite and ate a small piece of whatever cookie you gave him.

Downstairs the arcade really takes you back to a time when families were unplugged and played games of ping-pong or went to the malt shop AKA the Tea Room where you will find an old-fashioned luncheonette counter reminiscent of an old-time soda fountain. Order up an egg cream or one of the “World’s Greatest Milk Shakes.”

The halls are peppered with photos and artwork of the Lodge and the many events that have taken place there since 1928. The dog shows, sled races, golf tournaments, tennis matches and so much more. All around you will find pieces from the rich history of this historic resort.

Climb the stairs of the Lodge all the way to the Skytop Observation Post  which was used for spotting and reporting enemy aircraft during WWII.  It was manned around the clock by volunteer staff, guests, cottagers and townspeople. for the duration of the war. The observation tower has views of Skytop’s 5,500 acres as well as the Delaware Water Gap and beyond. It is a great place to take photos and just imagine what it must have been like to be a lookout during the war.

Spending time out in nature is something I think a person should do every day, whether it is a morning walk, having coffee admiring the birds in the feeders or a challenging hike, it is good for your mind, body and soul! Skytop has trails throughout the estate property that let you embark and gaze upon the peace and beauty of nature at its finest.

All kinds of trails are available, guided tours, self-guided tours, trails suitable for strollers and trails that are much more challenging. They take you to crystal clear waterfalls, pristine lakes, mountain vistas, ancient forests and more.

The forests are alive with all kinds of wildlife, downstairs there is chart where people list what they saw that day. While we were there, someone spotted a black bear on hole 11 on the golf course, a family of otter swimming under one of the falls and so much more. Beyond that there are blueberries and huckleberries galore.

Downstairs in the lodge there are wildlife exhibits of live snakes and turtles, booklets about wildlife and guides you can take if you are brave enough to venture off on one of the trails yourself.

One of the highlights of our time at Skytop was the time we spent with their naturalist Rick Koval. Rick took us on a tour of the butterfly house and a guided tour of falls. The butterfly house is new and you can take a tour where you will learn all kinds of interesting facts about butterflies and get to feed them. It is utterly informative and absolutely amazing. There are many great photo opportunities too! Check out the caterpillar that looks like he is smiling in the collage below.

The hike with Rick was a real treat. After your first hike with him, you will be scanning the activities’ sheet to see when the next walk or hike with him is.  Rick kept parents and kids engaged with his wealth of knowledge about the trees, flowers and wildlife found in the northeast Pennsylvania region and hands-on learning and tasting along the way. Who knew sassafras smelled and tasted like Fruit Loops?

Lodge 31

He showed us some of the most poisonous mushrooms, we did not taste test those but took his word for it. We all got hands on with nature and wildlife like the adorable newts we met along the way. The highlight was the beautiful waterfall we all stopped to admire and as we reach the end of our hike we immediately wanted to know when and where the next one was.

Lodge 33

After a nice hike it was time to hit the pool. Choose the outdoor or indoor pool or do both since they are connected. Relax and unwind on a chaise while your kids and maybe your husband if he is like mine, cannonball to their hearts desire. Then swim laps in the lap lane of the indoor pool. There is a kiddie pool and large hot tub for adults to soothe sore muscles in.

There are plenty of choices for dining. In the morning there is complimentary coffee and tea in the lobby along with fresh fruit and some fresh-baked goodies. If you are looking for a full breakfast, you can eat at the Windsor Dining Room.

The Windsor Dining Room serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Their cuisine is innovative and supports local farmers and ranchers. Everything is served in a classic setting. Be aware that no jeans, t-shirts, hats or shorts are permitted. On Saturday evenings, jackets are required for men. Ladies and children are also required to wear proper attire.

We really enjoyed the Tap Room, it is more casual and nice for families. They serve a full menu of traditional pub fare including lunch, sandwiches and dinner. I had a BBQ brisket sandwich that was so good my husband could not wait until I said I was too full to finish it! There serve large portions and the food is amazing.

The Inn-Between Deli is conveniently located in the Inn at Skytop between golf holes 9 and 10. The deli serves a light sandwich and salad menu. We found the Inn-Between Deli to be very convenient when we were at the lake and beach with our kids.

Also located at the Inn is the Lakeview Dining Room. Enjoy your meal in a relaxed setting overlooking one of Skytop’s lakes and award-winning golf course. The menu is extensive and offers something for everyone. Jackets are not required but jeans, t-shirts, hats or pool attire is not permitted. The front desk staff can assist with any questions about dining options and make reservations for you.

At night enjoy a marshmallow roast around the campfire or have fun playing Bingo with the other guests, movies are also shown in the afternoon and evenings. There is even a Camp in the Clouds for kids and so many other activities.

Even though in our first few days we had quite a bit of rain it was not constant and in the times of clearing we still were able to do so much. The last couple of days the weather was beautiful and while we did not believe the place could be more beautiful it was. Every time we went about we discovered something new and yet there was still so much we have not experienced.

Besides The Lodge there are other choices for accommodations on the property like the Inn at Skytop, The Cottages and the Stream Side Cottages. We chose the Lodge because we wanted the full, rich experience that only staying in the Lodge can provide.

skytop the inn

The Lodge guest rooms were newly renovated in 2015 and the inspiration for their design was Skytop’s history, traditions and the natural beauty of the Pocono Mountains. Incorporating that rich history with today’s modern conveniences led to the three signature designs of the Lodge guest rooms: Water, Garden and Mountain. There are also individually designed suites inspired by Skytop historical figures.

Our Garden theme room was gorgeous with a view overlooking the gardens, outdoor pool and the butterfly house.

Three dormer windows let in the natural light and let us peer down on everything below. In the closet were 2 large umbrellas, 2 handcrafted walking sticks and 2 luxurious robes. Waiting for us when we arrived was a plate of fruit and cheese along with flatbread crackers and a note from the staff.  The housekeeping service was excellent and made sure we did not want for anything.

skytop garden room

The valets were so accommodating and friendly it really was like coming home every time we came back from an activity, hike or trip into town. Shay at the front desk is a real treasure and always had a smile on his face, upon check in he remembered speaking to me the night before and went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for our stay. Christy, director of group sales worked her magic to make sure we had everything we needed. The smiles were genuine as was the desire to really help guests have the best possible experience.

Down by the Inn, a short walk from the Lodge is a lake with a beach area. There is a large inflatable island of fun out in the lake that my kids just loved. There is a sandy beach area that is filled with lounge chairs, tables, beach umbrellas and more.

Nothing is overlooked at Skytop, the pool area has stacks and stacks of soft, fluffy, cabana striped beach towels. Down by the lake there are sand toys galore kids can use as well as more stacks of soft, fluffy towels. There are ample lounges, chairs and tables at both pools and on the beach. In the pool area they have fun noodles, diving rings, balls and other pool toys.

The grounds are impeccable and off the porch you will find a nice large playground for kids, a lawn chess set, a kid size golf course and so much more. All kinds of lawn games are available like crochet, volleyball, badminton, lawn bowling and more. If you are the competitive type, there are tournaments you can take part in.

If you are a golfer, you will love the award-winning golf course with spectacular views and the ability to see a variety of wildlife as you are teeing off.

Among the beautiful perennial flowers the gorgeous butterflies and birds. A white gazebo adorned with flower boxes filled with vibrant, red and white geraniums awaits. Take a seat in one of the comfortable rocking chairs and spend some time listening to the calls of area birds like the Northern Cardinal.

Meet The Bottersnikes & Gumbles Today on Netflix #Bottersnikes

Do you have Netflix? We do and we love it. I don’t watch TV or even cable much, but Netflix is something I check out when I have time and I can always find a great documentary or original series or movie to watch. Netflix is the world’s largest internet TV service and it is not hard to understand why.

I want to share some great news! Netflix released their newest kid’s series, Bottersnikes & Gumbles Today!

Bottlesnikes Gumbles

This series is based on the beloved children’s books by S.A. Wakefield that were published in Australia and the UK between 1967 and 1989.
Bottlesnikes Gumbles book

The setting for this series is a fantasy kingdom of rusting junk and abandoned things AKA junkyard. Bottersnikes & Gumbles is geared to boys and girls ages 6-9 and having 2 boys in that range, I can tell you they loved the advance premier we watched together.

The animated graphics are amazing and the characters are awesome! Tink, Willi Bounce, Happi, Merry, Float, Jolli and Toot are the Gumbles.

Meet The Gumbles Graphic

The Gumbles live on Junk Highway in a Gumble Tree with an old school bus on it.

bottlesnikes gumble tee

As you might assume from their names, they are fun-loving creatures but they are also quite adventurous. Their bodies have the ability to be stretched or squashed just about any way they want to. The way they move around is called “gumbling” and their favorite snacks are grubs which you might expect are plentiful living on Junk Highway.

Bottlesnikes stretchy

While all this sounds delightful in a Gumble sort of way the Bottersnikes are not. The Bottersnikes live in Snike Hill and are ruled by the most awful Bottersnike, King Bottersnike.

Bottlesnike grumpier

They are not fun-loving like the Gumbles, they are mean spirited and more than that, they are stinky, lazy, selfish and mostly evil creatures. They don’t look nice either, they have hard, scaly skin, sharp teeth, claws and ears that glow red-hot when angry, which is almost all of the time!

Meet The Bottersnikes Graphic

They enjoy a diet of rusty nails but their favorite treat is mattress stuffing. One thing they really don’t like is water, if they get wet they shrink! You can check out more on their website and follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. This series is very entertaining, I hope you check it out with your kids and let me know what you think in the comments.

This review was made possible by iConnect and Bottlesnikes & Gumbles.  I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine.”

Find Out Why You Should Watch “The Martial Arts Kid” With Your Family

If you are affected by the high heat index or it is raining buckets and you are looking for a good movie to watch with your family, I have one to share. The Martial Arts Kid, recently released on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download from Traditionz Entertainment is an action-packed, family-friendly movie.

Martial Arts Kid

Robbie (Jansen Panettiere) is a troubled teen who seems to find trouble over and over in his Ohio hometown. Hoping to help him straighten out, his beleaguered grandmother sends him off to spend the summer with his aunt and uncle, who own a martial arts school in a sleepy, Florida beach community.

A new state and town is not enough to keep Robbie out of trouble. He ends up in very hot water when he makes the mistake of getting friendly with the girlfriend of Bo Whitlaw, the town bully. Knowing he is in deep trouble Robbie reaches out to his Uncle Glen for help.

martial arts kid photo

With his Uncle’s help Robbie learns how to stand up for himself and protect others. It is a fun family movie that may spark conversations on bullying and protecting others without becoming a bully yourself. It is an entertaining film about good versus evil that may intrigue youngsters to join martial arts. The Martial Arts Kid has the Dove Family Approved Seal for ages 12+, but with caution that the entire family could watch it, if not for some language and intense fighting scenes.

Check out the Trailer HERE on YouTube. Follow The Martial Arts Kid on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

ALSO STARRING:  Teen actress Kathryn Newton, who starred in Paranormal Activity 4 and has been seen in such hit films as Bad Teacher and in roles on such popular television series as Supernatural; Don “The Dragon” Wilson, an 11-time world champion kickboxer who has scored 47 knockouts, is a European Martial Arts Hall of Famer and a veteran star of more than 30 action films, including such box office hits as Batman Forever and Say Anything; and Cynthia Rothrock, who holds six black belts and is one of the first female martial arts action stars, with over 50 movies to her credit.

If you do watch this, let me know what you think in the comments.
