Skytop Lodge Skytop, Pennsylvania

4 of 14

This Dutch Colonial stone resort overlooking a 5,500-acre forested estate in the Poconos has long been a respite for city-dwelling Northeasterners. Despite the buttoned-up vibe (dress for dinner, kids!), the outdoor activities are endless—from mountain biking to paintball—and there’s a new adventure center with a climbing wall. The resort goes all out for holidays and theme weekends.

Guest Tip: The Rosenbergers of Philadelphia, now on their 20th year of visits, go for Mother’s Day, when the resort hires a photographer to take family portraits and serves a seven-course dinner followed by dancing to a 16-piece orchestra.

(Doubles from $582, including meals.)
