I don’t live in Pennsylvania anymore, but I’ve always been interested in the few historic Pocono resorts that still exist, and now it looks like there’s one less. I never made it further than the lobby of the Pocono Manor Inn, but it was on my list to try and stay there some time, but that isn’t ever happening now. Looks like the newer addition from 1925 is still pretty intact, but I bet the owner uses this as an excuse to level the whole thing and build something modern.


The place I worked out of of college used to do an annual strategic planning retreat at the Shawnee Inn in January, when the place was empty and the rooms where dirt cheap. I hated that job, but did enjoy the hotel. Fortunately, that one is fireproof and should be around for awhile.
