He hit the road right after grabbing a bite and filling up the gas. We have about a 4 to 5 hour drive ahead of us and I'm determined to do it in less. I am amazed at how beautiful the state of New York is. I think you always think of the city and forget about the state. We came through Geneva and Seneca valley on the way to Watkins glen. It overlooked Seneca lake and was lined with vineyard after vineyard all overlooking the lake at varying heights. It was very nice and extremely ...
... t "win" the "battle". I might be small, but I can pack away a few plate fulls....and then a few more plate fulls after reaching my "comfortably full" feeling. So these places are better off to drop off my check - but - keep my Pepsi full, or else I will countinue to eat......just to eat, and "win" the "battle" of the All You Can Eat Buffets. After over stuffing my belly, we hiked back down 61 to the trail head. We only hiked 5 miles to the camp site (it was around ...
Woken by alarm. However, I had alarm set for 8.30 instead of 7.30 and Gab already gone for the van before we woke. I had reheated pasta and cold pizza from last night for breakfast. Left about 10 to go to Palmerton Pennsylvania to see our friend Steve Obremski. GPS 'Judy Garmon' took us on lots of back roads as well as highways. It was pretty and interesting - some poorer neighborhoods as well.
Steve was ...
... Not a great selection of their own beers, but a good selection of local beer. And if we looked just right between the trees located across the highway from the restaurant, we could actually see the river - the Susquehanna River, I believe. We have crossed and re-crossed that river about 20 times over the past week. It runs from New York south through Pennsylvania and into Chesapeake Bay in ...
... crossed up and lost in Scranton. The GPS took us to the Steamtown Mall which, if I had only know, is one way to get to the museum. Finally, we found the entrance and parked. Once inside I ran into another Veteran.(You should never let two veterans start talking; they can waste an entire day reliving past adventures.) We were hungry so we walked through the museum yard and up the ramp to Steamtown Mall food court. A major disappointment because the only things open ...

Great for Kids
We loved the accomodations and the numerous activities available for children. We stayed four days and enjoyed our stay very much.
Stay in the Galleria Suites, they are large and new.
Great Staff, we would return for a longer viist.
Not the best
stayed last Feb. when storm hit - could not leave on date expected - left later - we were able to upgrade room - but room old - in need of updating - buffet style for breakfast and dinner - food was fair - I have two boys - they were not crazy about the food choices.
Food Stinks - Facilities Good
We loved this resort - perfect for kids under 10...but the food was terrible! Filet Mignon tasted like rubber, the scrambled eggs were powdered-based and smelled horribly, nothing was seasoned, and everything tasted as it if was prepared, frozen, then thawed out. Pasta sauce was drenched in oregano and most dishes are beyond bland with frozen vegetables as a side dish. Rice and pasta were sitting in water for such a long time, that everytime it was presented, it had grown to the size of a potato! No toast with breakfast - ever! And, what ever happed to bacon as part of a breakfast buffet? Very poorly selected and prepared. NOthing was fresh or desireable enough for the next day. Both the Lodge and the GAlleria restaurants are in need of a new chef and catering manager..desperately!
My husband and I stayed at the villa with 2 kids last winter. The villa was wonderful. Clean and cozzy. We loved outdoor activities and wilderness. The meal plan was fine. However, everything was over priced. We could have much more fun and a longer stay anywhere in the world for what we paid for Split Rock. It sounded like much more than it turned out to be.
AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS!!!
This place is a joke.
My wife and I were 100% dissatisfied with the resort and it's amenities. Poor service, horrible food, antiquated and outdated facilities, not to mention a management staff that does not know the meaning of customer service.
If you like 1970's decor, prison food, poor service, etc., then this is your place!
Not a dump in the poconos
the place is far from being a dump in the poconos,rooms were spacy,very well decorated and very clean.whole place was clean and very pretty.food was great and a good menu.staff was wonderful.lake was just beautiful.so much to do there also.most beautiful were the people friendy deer who roam the resort grounds...i will go back often as we can.great for kids and adults
Three of my friends and myself spent May 31st - June 7th at the Westwood Villas at Split Rock Resort and loved it. We woke to the sound of nature!! There were deer in the front and the back yards. They stood and looked and you allowing time for pictures! It was almost as if they were posing!! There were chipmunks every where. It was awesome. The resort itself was great. Lots of room for all of us. They even had an adjoining room to both bedrooms that held a sauna and a hot tub! This was very nice. The villa was clean and nicely decorated. The only thing it did not have was a washer and dryer in the villa itself. I am use to staying at resorts with a washer and dryer in the room which makes things much nicer. However, they do have guest laundry facilities available to you. There were many amenities at the resort, but we were so busy sightseeing that we never used any of them. It would have been nice to be able to go to the lake, but the weather was rainy and cold. Who can predict what the weather will be like when you plan a vacation???? We had a great time and the people at the resort were very helpful whenever we had a need or a question. I would highly recommend Westwood Villas. I plan to return when I know the weather will be warmer!
Great Staff, Lousy Food
I took 4 teen girls last December for a long weekend. The suite was dark and shabby, but clean and in working order. The food was lousy and overpriced, but the staff couldn't have been nicer. The girls went to the movies, bowled, played bingo in the lobby, listened to the band, and had a wonderful time. I sat in the whirlpool and relaxed by the pool, knowing that the girls were safe and happy under the same huge roof. I would go back again but not with the meal plan.
Great Get a way
My husband & I spend weekends at the Villas at Split Rock whenever possible. We enjoy the units and the facilities. We booked a week there for Thanksgiving several years ago and the "kids" ( 15-21 yrs had a great time. We travel extensively for business reasons, but when we're ready for a weekend get away - its either Split Rock or Caesars Pocono Palace.
A Dump In the Poconos
Don't bother. The place is falling apart, the rug and bedspread had cigarette burns and the gratuity was included in the price. Never again!
