Skytop Harvest Lake Stroll: An Historic Lodge at Fall Foliage Time
One Day Tour ~ Sunday, October 11, 2020
Fall Foliage should be at or near peak during this tour. This morning, we head west to the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, where we make a stop at a local farm stand. Here, each person will get a pumpkin to bring home (included), and time to shop in its farm stand and nursery. Next, we visit The Skytop Lodge, an exclusive 5,500-acre resort in the heart of the Poconos. Since 1928, it has been affectionately revered as “The Pride of the Poconos.” Listed on the National Register of Historic Hotels, it stands as a beautifully maintained tribute of a bygone era. The many public areas of the hotel are elegant and extensive. The manicured grounds feature gardens, walking paths, a lake, and more. Our visit coincides with the annual Harvest Lake Stroll which takes place amid the fiery foliate and crisp autumn air as we get to celebrate the sights, smells and tastes that make the harvest season so spectacular! There will be a variety of mouthwatering food and wine from local and national vineyards (included) available to sample throughout the afternoon. Time is also provided to explore the resort and grounds on our own. After a relaxing day of immersing ourselves in our pleasant surroundings our time will speed by as we reflect on our amazing experience during our return home.
