Skytop Lodge

What makes us who we are? What makes Skytop the perfect Poconos Mountains destination? Is it the 5,500 acres of natural wonder? Our storybook setting? The endless experiences and adventures like the hiking, the Tree Top Adventure Center, or the world-class dining? Perhaps it’s our accommodations? The old-world charm of the Lodge, the Inn, or the Cottages? Or the fact that a world of wonders is right here, so far away from it all yet so close.

Skytop is the perfect Poconos Mountains experience. Blending natural wonder with breathtaking beauty, impeccable service and world-class amenities, Skytop stands alone as the premier Pocono Mountains resort. With family, with friends, or with that one you can’t live without, we invite you to experience Skytop for yourself. Schedule your time at the top today.
