HOME! We got home today around 1:30PM. Nice ride home not much traffic did about 375. Even though it wasn't a lot of mileage the ride seemed like it took forever. Shane and I both were moving a little slower as each day wore on but today when we looked at each other all we could do was smile. I said you look like I feel and he said back likewise :) :) Had the joy of unpacking the bike and trailer. That trailer is the best thing ever. We had another one and ...
Stopped for lunch at a Rt 84 Country store high on a hill. Saw some unique items. Lake Wallenpaupack is close by but no time for tubing!! LJ
I played packman for free and saw a cool 8N tractor and a huge teepee. RJ
There was plenty of interesting things to examine, making it a well worthwhile visit for lunch. PJ Onward to New York ...
... a candy store which sold beautifully decorated toffee apples and rows and rows of other confectionary, lots of chocolate including chocolate covered strawberries.
We then drove to the biggest water park ever in the Pocono Mountains. This area is also a ski facility in the winter. There was all sorts of fun slides, beaches, wave pools (salt water) and sand. Really well done, we sat in the heat & swam in the cool, along with thousands of others, but it ...
... supermarkets are shiny & feel clean when you walk into them.
This little town, Milford, was established in 1700's, the homes here are very cute, most of them are two storey, wooden and have wee verandas out front with hanging baskets, not much garden & small lawn, the same as in the movies like 'To Kill a Mockingbird'. Wonder what it was like here back in the 1700's.
June 25 - July 9, 2014 (Days 56-69) Thanks you, Christian, Andrea, Alexander, Max and Christian for a great vacation for us. It's always wonderful being with you! We had lots of fun things to do with each other.
Until next time...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Inn at Pocono Manor
If you want old world charm and a family feeling, go to Pocono Manor. The hotel has that old world charm that makes you feel warm and comfortable. Walk out the door and nestle yourself in the trees. Go for a swim, play golf or go to the Spa.
We met for a family reunion and we re-booked before we left. The children were thrilled and the adults were busy. The staff made us feel so comfortable that we felt like family.
We met all types of people that felt the same way we did; couples celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, reunions or friends getting away for the quiet weekend. The size of Pocono Manor and the array of ammenities lends itself to everyone!
Can't wait to go back.
Stay away from this hotel!!!
My husband & I stayed at the Pocono Manor for a convention. Our room was absolutely the most disgusting hotel room I have ever been in. The ceiling light was full of dead bugs, the curtains had yellow stains on them, the bathroom had hair in the tub and on the floor and mold around all edges. The bed was so old and uncomfortable that we got no sleep and were in pain the next day. No amenities - no minibar, no room service, horrible bath products. Old furniture and an ancient TV. Others in our group had the same problems. Such a shame - with some upgrading and staff changes - could be charming. When we complained - the staff refused to listen, would not even look at our room to confirm the filth & refused to get the hotel manager. Unprofessional to say the least. Needless to say - we left early. Would never return and I advise everyone to stay away.
What a wonderfully charming place! We havent been to the Manor in quite awhile and when we went back we were overwhelmed with the improvements and upgrades that have been done to this property. They must have spent an obscene amount of money on these upgrades, from the spa to the golf course we just enjoyed every minute spent there. We cant wait to return.
Overall A Good Weekend
I surprised my wife with a weekend to Pocono Manor Resort and Spa over Labor Day Weekend 2004. As we pulled onto the property we were overtaken with how beauitful the property is for an older hotel. Our room was equally as nice. Must have been some recent upgrades because the bathroom hard marble on the walls and there was a flatscreen t.v. We stayed on the sixth floor, and the only problem we had was the air conditioner did not work. However it really wasnt a problem, since it was cool outside we slept with the windows open. My wife and I got a couples massage, and loved the spa, it was worth every penny! We got the package at the hotlel that included meals. The dinners were great, but the breakfast was worth skipping. Overall we liked the place and would stay again, however I thought it was a little pricey for the overall package.
Gross! When we got in our room we discovered it hadn't even been cleaned! The bed wasn't made, the old linens were still on it and there was dirt and hair covering every flat surface! The staff was horrible and there was absolutely nothing to do. We left right away of course and they offered us 4 free nights or $100. WHAT????!!!!! Ok, so 4 nights in the hotel is worth $100 to them? I don't get how a place like that stays open.
Spa Fabulous, Hotel Horrible
The Pocono Manor was horrible. The hotel is over 80 years old and it shows. As with a previous reviewer, we had problems with the heating/air conditioning unit in our room. It was extremely loud, and turned on for a few minutes and then off for a few about every ten minutes, making sleeping, talking or watching TV extremely difficult. Speaking of the TV, it was a 13 inch color TV that was approximately 25 years old! The bed was also quite uncomfortable. We thought the food was okay and the service excellent, with the exception of the evening Maitre'D; we asked our server to ask the him to tell a couple who kept receiving cell phone calls to turn their phones off or to go outside, but he did not do anything, forcing me to confront the couple, causing a scene.
The only good thing about the Pocono Manor resort is the Laurel Spa (a recent addition). The staff was first rate and the service impeccable. We would go to the spa again, but would stay somewhere else.
NOT a great value here. This is a very old lodge and gives you a glimpse of what another world might have been... but it is time to modernize! My husband took a terrible fall in the dark, icy parking lot, I found a chard of wine bottle cap in my child's meal, other guests found left-behind pills of all colors under their child's hotel bed. Careless service, poor quality, out-of-date facility that needs some attention. Until then, learn about this place in the history books.
We had a great time
My family had a great time here. Old Hotel (100 years plus) but charming, no glitz old world much like old resorts in Europe. We were there for dog sled races and sking, they have a great Spa.
What a Dump!
The Pocono Manor is an incredibly-overpriced dump. We were there in the winter, and the in-room heating when on every 10 minutes. It made such a racket that no one in my family got any sleep! The rooms were large, but with little furniture. The bed was unfomfortable, and for $189 a night! The room had no minibar, and a TV from 30 years ago. I asked about using the indoor pool, and they said that would "open it up" for me if I asked. The food was absolutely disgusting as well. We checked out early after one night, which we have never done before. Don't go there.
Horrible and Tired
Food - horrible - couldn't eat my dinner Rooms - small Sheets - ripped Service - not much No room service No full length mirror in room No hairdryer in room Pool - gross Gym - equipment old For the amount of $ charged, definitely not worth it. Go somewhere else!!!! TRUST ME!
