Gingerbread WeekendsDecember 7th - 9th; 14th - 16th; 21st - 23rd
Have you ever seen a life-sized gingerbread house? Little elves scurry about creating the perfect Holiday atmosphere as you celebrate with loved ones during the most wonderful time of year!
The theme of this year’s Gingerbread House is “Santa’s North Pole Home.” See our life-sized gingerbread house and learn how to make your own gingerbread masterpiece! Enjoy a weekend full of Holiday cookies, hot wassail, holiday stories, Victorian caroling and dozens of other family-fun events. Parents will love the delicious holiday themed meals and will enjoy holiday culinary presentations while their children delight in visits with Santa and a fireside reading of "T'was The Night Before Christmas."
The gingerbread house is perfect setting for a family portrait! The public is welcome to come to the Lodge to see the house and the beautiful Holiday decorations. We invite you to stay for lunch or dinner (additional charge and reservations required). While visiting, you can enjoy the amenities of the resort such as ice skating, sledding or skiing for an additional charge.
Construction of the Gingerbread House will begin the Monday after Thanksgiving. Come to Skytop and get in the spirit of the season!
Enjoy hot wassail and holiday cookies at tea time. The family will have fun ice skating after dinner. Relax by the roaring fire in the Pine Room while listening to the sounds of The Doug Smith Trio.
The ladies of the Skytop Flower Shop will demonstrate how to make holiday crafts. You will also enjoy gingerbread decorating and meeting the Skytop baker who created the life-size gingerbread house! Children and adults alike will feel their holiday excitement grow with a reading of “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Participate in a traditional Yule Log ceremony before dinner. Touch of Classics and strolling Victorian carolers will provide the evening’s entertainment.
Enjoy Skytop's traditional holiday brunch.
In the spirit of the season, the Skytop Family has arranged to donate up to $10,000 to assist those affected by Hurricane Sandy. A percentage of each reservation goes toward our contribution so join us anytime through the holidays and help us reach our goal!
