I got married in 1995. We chose a honeymoon package from the Penn Hills Resort. I didn't know much about the Poconos at the time. I just heard people say "We honeymooned in the Poconos." Thinking this was the perfect destination for our honeymoon, we started checking resorts online so we would have a really nice honeymoon. Yeah right! Don't get me wrong, I had a great honeymoon because I was with the man I love. He made it special and a good thing because the resort well, I don't want to use foul language in this site: and I won't -you get the drift. I don't know if this resort was in a bad area of the Poconos. I didn't know if there was even a bad area of the Poconos. By the way, I don't even know if this resort still exists or is under a new name. I hope someone has taken it over and turned it into something better. I truly hope so! Anyway we bought a package deal. I highly recommend you don't buy one of these honeymoon packages. The reason: the meals. There were so many meals included in the package. You have to be there on time or at least before the meal ends or no meal. When you are venturing out in the area, remember, be back on time! Who wants to have time constraints on their honeymoon? Not me! There were not many people at the resort either. The area had little for activities. We did horseback ride and visited Bushkill Falls. Other than that, I don't remember anything worthwhile. Nowhere else to eat other than the resort and the food was nothing to brag about either. The cabin was nice. The resort sits right on the side of the road, a regularly traveled road---that you have to cross from the cabins to the restaurant. It is really odd that it sits by a very well traveled road. And they call it a resort. We made a big mistake! I enjoyed our time together though. One time a family member took his children and wife to the Poconos and booked at Mt Airy. Well needless to say he asked for his money back and got it. I guess the regulars of the area call it Mt. Scarey. Maybe things have changed since 1995. I'll stick with Gatlinburg, Tennessee!
