Rainbow Mountain Resort

Rainbow Mountain Resort (formerly Sky-Hi Lodge) has been serving the community since the early 1900's. Nestled high atop a mountainside on 25 private acres, including a two acre pond, It boasts a spectacular view of the surrounding mountains. Welcoming both men and women of all lifestyles, we are open year round with our friendly and helpful staff ready to serve you. For photos and information go to www.rainbowmountain.com.

One of our guests wrote a review that says it best:

"Of all the places in the world I love, one of the best is Rainbow Mountain. For twelve years I have run themed weekends and twice a year I work with the resort and all of the staff. The buildings were built in the 1940's and codes were different then. The place has a charm of its own but the best part is getting to know the staff and making yourself part of the family, which takes about fifteen minutes on a bad day.

When you are a regular at Rainbow it's like taking a ride to grandma's for a visit with all the cousins. Rainbow thrives on holidays, especially Halloween, but every Thursday a familiar crew gathers for Karaoke. On Saturday nights everybody dances in the disco. As the weather changes in the mountains it’s simply beautiful to watch the mist roll over the pond located in the center. Not everything at Rainbow is brand new and shiny but the new owners know that and are fixing what needs to be fixed while maintaining the innate charm of the place. Frankly, I will settle for what they have if they promise to keep their smiles, their hugs and family charm. I like old-fashioned warmth and you can find it at Rainbow.

Did I mention the big porch? On a pretty day old friends sit there for hours and talk about everything and nothing. Just let Joey know if you need something to drink. Jayson and Rich are always around so there’s no reason to not let your needs be known. Finding flaws with Rainbow is like complaining about the Chelsea, or the Hotel Pennsylvania. You don't whine, you embrace it and be glad a piece of culture is still here." - M.Davis

Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes

Raymond Miller and Richard Spezzano stayed at Rainbow Mountain Resort on their first anniversary and found it to be a very special place. In 2011 the then owner was looking to sell the resort. Builders seemed to be interested in the 25 acres for what they believed might be housing projects. Raymond and Richard did not want to see this historic wonderful resort torn down, so they purchased the property and began restoring.

Pet Friendly Notes

In Summer season, there are several pet-friendly cottages available.
