Mountaintop Lodge Bed & Breakfast – Family Friendly B&B Review

Mountaintop Lodge

Our Weekends in Pennsylvania series latest stop in the Poconos was at the Mountaintop Lodge in Lake Naomi. I was invited up as part of a Media Weekend/Girl’s Weekend hosted by Cashman & Associates. I had a wonderful time learning about the Lake Naomi Club community and what a great area it can be for a couple’s weekend, girls’ weekend, and trip with the kids. In fact, I can’t wait to bring the kids back.  Today, I’d love to tell you about this fabulous bed and breakfast in the Poconos, the Mountaintop Lodge. Later this week we’ll talk about where to eat and what kind of activities Lake Naomi has to offer.

 

Traveling to the Mountaintop Lodge was pretty easy. Of course, I was a little freaked out when my GPS didn’t recognize the Poconos, but then I remembered that I do know how to get to the PA turnpike and my nerves were calmed. Coming from near Atlantic City, it was just around 3 hours and a pretty easy ride. Atlantic City Expressway to 42 North, then over the bridge I went. I took 76 East to the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Mountaintop Lodge was just off exit 95. I kid you not, there were no crazy turns or switching off and onto major highways. If I was going to drive alone on a road trip, this was one of the easiest I could have done. It was also a beautiful drive with mountains green on one side and covered with snow on the other.

 

When I arrived at the Mountaintop Lodge Friday afternoon, I was greeted by a Jersey girl, no less. (We’re everywhere.) We talked about how she spent her summers in Cape May and her winters in the Poconos. If a Jersey girl was willing to leave the shore then there must be something special about this place. I also met Carolyn, in charge of the Lodge she too was just as courteous as the rest of the staff. Then, I grabbed by bags and headed into my room to get settled in.

The Mountaintop Lodge offers many kinds of guest rooms. I stayed in a traditional room, great for a trip with your special someone or if you are reserving a few rooms with your girlfriends. I snapped a few pictures for my readers and then got unpacked. With a closet and dresser, the room offered plenty of space for storing my clothing. Once unpacked I set of to explore what else the Mountaintop Lodge had to offer.

 

Mountaintop Lodge First Floor

  • A common, large, living area with plenty of seating and a game table.
  • The Coffee and Pastry Shop offers fresh-brewed and specialty coffee drinks, smoothies and Italian sodas, along with homemade pastries. The chocolate bark was my favorite.

After I explored the Mountaintop Lodge I had a delicious cup of strawberry tea and headed back to my room for a quick rest before dinner at the Lake Naomi Clubhouse Restaurant. We’ll tell you more about the Clubhouse Restaurant on Wednesday. For now, let me tell you more about the Mountaintop Lodge.

In full disclosure, this is a sponsored post from the Mountaintop Lodge and Lake Naomi Club. We were provided with a room and breakfast at no charge. Our parking was included. These things were arranged so that we could review the Mountaintop Lodge for its family friendliness.  However, our opinions are honest and based on our experiences at Mountaintop Lodge.
