One Romantic Getaway For Two

By

Tango road-tests a quick getaway two hours from New York City.

Looking for a quick East coast getaway for two? This past weekend, I went to the Skytop Lodge (www.skytop.com) in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, just 2 short hours from NYC and a step back in time. They have lots of accommodations, but we stayed in the main lodge and had a nice, quaint room with view of one of the many gardens on their 5,500 acres. Prices aren’t cheap, but they include all of your meals. Being somewhat of a foodie, I wasn’t expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised with the yummy food and impeccable service. The staff couldn’t have been nicer, and they were chock full of advice on things to do in the area with activities on property from hiking to fishing and the spa to nearby antiquing, gambling and amazing Callie’s pretzels. I even got to spy on a beautiful wedding taking place outside of our window amongst the just-in-bloom tulips. Oh, and don't skip the spa—relaxing, accommodating and top-shelf services rounded out the weekend. A word I don’t use often describes Skytop Lodge: genteel.{C}
