Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday lodge in Bristol - Sky Lodge

Lodge, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Nestled on a hilltop overlooking the surrounding countryside you'll find Sky Lodge, an Adirondack Great Camp style Stone Lodge. Built in 1927 as a weekend escape from city life, the Lodge remains an ideal getaway. A place like no other, the Lodge is built of stone and features much hand fashioned ironwork original to the building. Rate includes the entire Lodge and surrounding private woods and trails.

Located in the scenic Finger Lakes region, the area provides guests with much to experience, while the Lodge provides a peaceful retreat. Whether you want to spend a relaxing day hiking the trails surrounding the Lodge and enjoying the view from the tower, or if you would prefer to explore local wineries, golf courses, shopping, and other attractions, the Lodge is the perfect place to spend or end your day.

For wintertime fun we are located 10 minutes from Bristol Mountain Ski Resort offering premiere down hill skiing and snowboarding, and 5 minutes from Cummings Nature Center with miles of groomed cross country and snowshoe trails (rentals available). Warm up with a hot cocoa by the fire when you return to SkyLodge, or jump into the 2 person jacuzzi and watch the snow fall outside. During the holidays the Lodge is decorated with a 15 foot Christmas tree and all of the trimmings!

Set on 34 private acres, the Lodge has plenty to keep guests happy on-site. The Lodge has all of the amenities of home, including a fully-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, a outdoor stainless-steel gas grill and much more. The Lodge also provides some added luxuries including a massive, central stone fireplace in the Great Room with two upholstered rocking chairs to curl up in, a Jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom, a tower with beautiful views, hiking trails, and your very own edible landscape. It is also located in close proximity to wonderful shopping, antiquing, wineries, parks, scenic drives, and much more!

About Julie Kopf

Tom and Julie Kopf are the owners of Sky Lodge. They purchased the Lodge in 2007 and spent two years renovating the Lodge and turning it into a place where people can come and find a real retreat. Almost every aspect of the Lodge was made over in the process, from the Tower to the hand-crafted beds, created by Tom. They live in the Bristol Hills where they have raised their twins, Becky and Jimmy and are now raising their two Maltese pups.

Julie Kopf purchased this lodge in 2007

What makes this lodge unique

There is no place quite like the Lodge. An Adirondack Great Camp style Stone Lodge, the building already stands out as unique. It also has much of the original ironwork, including a huge original chestnut farm table and benches that is perfect for the family to gather around. The Lodge is a place that people should be able to relax in. It is set on private 34 acres, so is peaceful without the worries of the world. We have tried to make it as user-friendly as possible, providing a fully-equipped kitchen, and by providing linens and towels for our guests. In addition, we've created the perfect place to sit back- actually a few of them: the chairs on the deck, the huge, comfortable couches in the living room, the custom-upholstered rocking chairs by the fireplace, the chairs in the tower room, the claw foot tub in the main bath and the Jacuzzi in the master bath! Does life get any better?

Fantastic Property! Peaceful, beautiful getaway.

  • 5 out of 5
I highly recommend this property. The Lodge is beautiful, has a great history, and is equipped with everything you need. Tom was very helpful and accommodating and communicated well. I was travelling through the area and spent two nights at the lodge. The property has a great hiking trail, and town is close enough to enjoy the restaurants. Thanks, Tom and Julie for managing such a nice property!

A Great Escape

  • 5 out of 5
Peaceful, serene, secluded, magical, breathtaking - just a few of the words that come to mind when thinking of Sky Lodge. Tom & Julie have done a magnificent job in both restoring and furnishing this lovely home. If ever wanting to "escape from it all", Sky Lodge should be your destination. Once you have experienced a stay, you will want to return again and again. We are already planning our next visit this winter.

What A Wonderful Time!

  • 5 out of 5
Just got back from four days at Sky Lodge. Hard to describe how wonderful and beautiful this place is.
The pictures cannot fully convey the warm and inviting feeling in this lodge, the gorgeous views, the charming town of Naples and the peace, relaxation and joy you feel from being there. The owners are very friendly & helpful. Always ready to make your stay a pleasant and memorable one. The five of us watched the sunrise every morning from the front porch and could not believe the beauty of it. Looking to get away and leave it all behind for awhile and connect with nature and family/friends - this is the place for you!! Loved it - we will be back!!

As Close To Heaven As You Can Get

  • 5 out of 5
When I first saw the picture of the porch at Sky Lodge in a magazine advertisement I knew that was the place I wanted to sit and enjoy a few days of total relaxation. I invited my sister, cousin, and a friend to join me in some time to escape reality. We hoped the pictures were not lying...and as we are now making plans to return with our families, we realize they only began to tell a story. This place was beyond any other "get a way" any of us had ever experienced. We heard every bee buzz, the hummingbirds' wings flap, and most of all we heard each other. We laughed, cried, played kid games, and enjoyed just being at the lodge.
Tom and Julie accommodated our every need and offered great hospitality. We felt like we were right at home and were able to truly enjoy the view. The historic place was spotless, neat and incredibly decorated with history. We are looking forward to returning year after year as "the girls," but to also bring our families to see what a magnifcant place this is to make lasting memories.
We thank Tom and Julie for putting all their time into such a treasure that allowed us some time to just breathe, put life into perspective, get our priorities in order, and feel a sense of renewal.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words Michele. We are always happy to see people come up to unwind and find what they were looking for. You and your group were a pleasure to meet. One of your girls has already set a date to come back with her husband and kids. We look forward to meeting all of your families.
See you soon,
Tom & Julie

great spot for a winter retreat

  • 5 out of 5
Tim and Julie were amazing hosts at this wonderful retreat, completely accessible but not overbearing. It is even more lovely than the photos. Tim had a fire going and the place was immaculate and warm. The views and hiking trails were lovely, the kitchen worked great. I would recommend this spot highly and hope to return again. I loved the big comfy couches and the cool old ironwork. Some of us went to snowshoe at the nature center and visit Naples....I was happy just staying by the fire and relaxing.

A magical place to get away from it all

  • 5 out of 5
My girlfriends and I planned a weekend to reconnect and take a break from the hustle and bustle of daily living. The healing and relaxation began with our drive to Sky Lodge (easy to get to and not far from the City). We were warmly welcomed by Tom and Julie, and were awestruck at the beauty of Sky Lodge and its surroundings. We ran through the Lodge shouting like children! The pictures on the website cannot do Sky Lodge justice-it is a slice of heaven! If you are looking for a get away that isn't too far from "civilization" Sky Lodge is for you. We were able to cross country ski and spend the afternoon in Naples without feeling worn out from driving around. My favorite part might just be sledding down the hill. It really was a magical weekend, just what we needed to get us through the rest of the winter. We have decided to make our girls weekend an annual event at Sky Lodge!
