Easily accommodated 4 branches of the family and each had the their own bathroom. It was negative 3 degrees the first morning but the stone fireplace kept us cozy and plenty of firewood was provided. The "mold" others had mentioned in reviews was not observed. 3 hepa air filter machines were available but weren't necessary. The proximity to the main Lodge is fantastic. The facilities and activities at the Lodge are outstanding. We had to leave a day early and Alex graciously gave us a credit for one night to use in the future, which the family can't wait to use next year!
Roomy cottage with nice screened-in porch, good bathrooms and easy walk to Skytop Lodge. Wristbands give access to the amazing grounds and many activities for all ages. Kitchen has new appliances and plenty of gear to cook for a crowd - and the restaurants at the Lodge are delightful, especially the Taproom. Don’t miss the Library Lounge and the Observation Deck! The cottage is a cozy but spacious 1920s gem whose decor could use some editing and updating.
This property was perfect for our family reunion. The large bedrooms on the main floor were perfect for my 90 year old mom, and porch and living room had more than enough room for all 10 adults. The close location to the Skytop Lodge and access to their dining and activities worked perfectly for our group.
My extended family has been coming to the Skytop Resort since the 1940s. This was the first time we stayed off property, and it was a very pleasant experience. We were a group of 13, including three generations, and having the use of an entire house made this a great trip. We loved all being together instead of in separate hotel rooms. The house is old (as disclosed in the description) but the location was an easy walk to the Lodge, the house was very well stocked with kitchen essentials, and the beds were mostly comfortable. The twin beds could stand to be replaced as they were the least comfortable. The house itself could use a fresh coat of paint and some updating, but it was charming, comfortable and spacious. The hosts were communicative, and responded to issues promptly. We will definitely rent this property again.
Finally got the family together for a getaway. There were so many things for everyone to do, we were never bored. Skytop is beautiful. We hiked, biked, rented canoes, swam, hot tubbed, did the tree obstacle course, golf cart tour. Everyone was so friendly, really great place!!! Our favorite activities guy was named Gibson what a great kid!!!
We had a wonderful stay at Cottage 45. It was the perfect size for our group of 3 families. The place was clean, homey and comfortable. The weather didn't cooperate for us, but we all still had a great time since we had access to everything at Skytop and were able to keep the kids entertained with the arcade and indoor pool. We would absolutely go back.
We had most of everything we needed. Capacity was great! Linen's was satisfactory. Location was great. Atmosphere was comfy!!!!
Beautiful fall weekend with family and friends. Plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the house and Skytop activities.
While this property is well-worn, it was clean and has a great floor plan to accommodate a large group of people. Also, it's proximity (an easy 2-minute walk) to Skytop Lodge makes it an ideal place to enjoy Skytop Lodge's excellent facilities.
We had an excellent stay! The house has an amazing layout with large rooms and many beds and slept all of us comfortably. The house was extremely clean, everything worked great and in great condition. Since the house is so close to all of Skytop’s activities, it was super convenient to come back to the house after an activity to eat/nap/whatever. It is important to note that Skytop is a resort in the Pocono mountains, and this house fit that image, it was truly a perfect cabin in the woods. The owner Alex was super helpful and engaging, and we found no trouble checking in at all. We will no doubt come again. We have stayed at the lodge before, but I would highly recommend staying at this house because you can sleep your whole family no problem, and like I said, it has an amazing location to everything.
