Set on 3,500 acres on the western edge of the Poconos near Jack Frost and Big Boulder Ski Resorts, Pocono Manor Inn and Golf Resort hails back to 1901 when it was first conceptualized.
Set atop Little Pocono Mountain, this resort offers historic touches and charm with scenic beauty. The 257 guest rooms are appointed with period furnishings of mahogany furniture and patterned rugs.
Offers two 18-hole golf courses, cross country skiing, and substantial meeting space.
Pocono Manner sits pretty on the top of Little Pocono, and spreads out to 3000 acres; and the largeness extends not to just the property width but its hospitality too. It's hard to pin-point what gives Pocono that special element which brings back her visitors. Some route for the unforgettable old world charm, which includes the really old books in the library. The old world ambiance is not what your routine holiday resort would give, and the hospitality has not worn out yet, in spite of the whole century it has been going on. You might almost think that a ghost might pop round the corner any time; in fact you can locate a few ghost stories here and there. The wear of the property shows at places, but adds its effect to the ambiance, and there aren't any compromises on comfort.
The other come-back-here element at Pocono is the uncompromising standard of hospitality of the place. The staff really delivers what the brochures promise and sustains the tempo long after the welcomes fade elsewhere. The warmth of that special treatment lasts till your final minute at the Inn. This same fact makes you want to come back every time you leave Pocono Manor after a stay.
The conveniences are all there in spite of the old world look. Your room will have high speed internet, you can use the pools indoor and outdoor as well as the fitness room, and special events like family movie nights and evening entertainment - all complimentary with your basic bookings. Check with what package you have opted to see if you can also avail treats like a four-course dinner in the elegant dining room looking at the mountains. The Chef usually treats his guests with lip-smacking fare including great desserts. Some of the packages give you Spa specials, others have Camelback ski passes; yes, the famed Camelback Ski fun is just ahead of the resort. Unlimited golf is another offer with a specific package deal. Check this link for details. Pocono Manor

In case your guest list runs into a couple of hundreds too, the Manor people will handle it perfectly well; they have been doing this for over a century, see? The wedding packages think of everything you need like a Maitre d' Service and white napkins, and offers a complimentary overnight room for the happy couple, complete with champagne and strawberries.
