A Skytop Christmas Party

Well, we were on the road again! My DH and I packed, loaded up the car, and took a journey all the way up to Skytop Lodge in the Poconos. This place is amazing! It was our second time there for a party and I can't say enough about it. They treat their customers like royalty. And the Christmas party was tons of fun, too. Lots of great food, friends, and plenty of dancing! In fact, my feet are still hurting...

The culinary staff put together this yummy looking (and smelling) gingerbread house that would have made Hansel and Gretel envious. Loaded with icing, candies and HERSHEY'S chocolate bars...I was gaining weight just looking at it. All the baking must have taken awhile...a thousand pounds of gingerbread later. Guess they're not too worried about being "green."

The entire place is made up of 5500 acres...lots to do even in the wintertime. This picture was taken the first day before we started our hunt for vintage finds.

We woke up the next morning to a winter
wonderland. But no worries, Skytop even has its own ski slopes and ice skating rink!

Don't be envious but I was at Skytop too this past November and witnessed the first snow of the season. In a word -- magical. Mother Nature and of course John Serrao, the onsite naturalist, provided a wonderful nature walk as both my son and I discovered black bears, beavers and more shared the same path at Goose Pond.

What a great place indeed.
