Hotel at a Glance: Pocono Mountains Villas
Located in a secluded part of Pennsylvania’s pine-fringed Pocono Mountains, Pocono Mountains Villas provides a balance of having close access to the surrounding nature and enjoying the perks of staying inside their resort room. Here, there’s plenty to do outside, including horseback riding, golfing, and local shopping. On the other hand, guests may choose to spend their vacation indoors and cozy up with a book in the comfortable living-style villas available here.
Villas: Choose from a studio, one bedroom, or two bedroom villa. Each room is spacious, with hardwood floors and floral decorated linens. Larger villas feel like homey living spaces and include kitchens and couches to act as a home away from home.
Activities: Take advantage of the surrounding area with year-round activities including horseback riding. In the winter, guests may rent snowmobiles, go snow-tubbing, and visit an indoor go-kart race track while in the summer guests can rent boats and rock climb.
The Warehouse Tavern and Grill: This modern bar and restaurant serves up specials to resort guests and their full-spread menu includes wings, sandwiches, signature salads, and their hearty Warehouse chili.
Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains: Hiking, Trout Fishing, and Historical Towns
The Poconos region of northeastern Pennsylvania accounts for some 2,400 square miles of mountains, lakes, waterfalls, and forests. The area has been a popular vacation destination ever since Pennsylvania Quakers opened a hotel here on the Delaware River in 1829. Today, the Poconos draw more than 25 million annual visitors, thanks to year-round recreational opportunities and stunning natural scenery.
The warmer months are a great time to explore the region’s lakes and wooded hills. For spectacular hikes, check out Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, where you can trek to dramatic waterfalls or follow a 27-mile section of the historic Appalachian Trail. A handful of little towns full of antique shops and galleries nestle in the mountains, too. You’ll find boutique wine galleries and historical mansions tucked away on country roads, including the late 19th-century Asa Packer Mansion, which is open for tours, in the borough of Jim Thorpe.
