Get playful in the Poconos at this 3,000-acre, AAA Three Diamond Award-winning resort, tucked away in rural Pennsylvania. The Inn at Pocono Manor, listed on the National Registry of Historic Places and known as “The Grand Lady of the Mountains” after more than a century of welcoming guests, is better described as a lodge, with its period furnishings, rustic sporting activities and outdoor fun. Its very own sports club offers skeet shooting, archery, skiing, fishing and biking, and you get exclusive access to five square miles of mountain scenery, crystal-clear streams and abundant wildlife.
And after all the play – there are also hiking trails, pools, golf holes and games – comes the pampering, with The Laurel Spa offering a tranquil escape from the outdoor excitement. Massages, body wraps, facials, steam rooms and facials are just a few ways you can relax at this wellness destination. When it’s time to wine and dine, Exchange is a cozy spot for a dinner of eclectic fare. Then, catch a movie night if one is scheduled, or stop by Lamplighter Lounge for a nightcap and your favorite oldie on the digital jukebox – that is, if there isn’t a party happening on the dance floor.

How to Get There
I stayed at the Manor one night by myself for a quiet getaway. I was a little nervous staying somewhere by myself, but every person I interacted with who worked there was VERY nice and helpful which made my time there very relaxing. It's an older building but has lots of character, and the grounds are beautiful.
The Hotel is typical of an upscale Poconos Resort. I found my room to be very spacious and clean. There was lots of sunlight in the morning and the bed was welcoming and comfortable. The closet was large enough to stash a family of four. Only slightly negative comment is that the TV did not have a guide. When I came into the room I had to search through the various channels to find stations I was looking for. I did not use any of the resort amenities but as all guests was required to pay a resort fee. Overall this is a great place to stay
I visited this resort for a work retreat. It has a vintage charm that remind you of a classic poconos resort. The staff was courteous and accomodating. The rooms are small, as you would expect to find in a older hotel. It needs a refresh badly.
Hotel is more of a boutique hotel. VERY old and outdated. Nothing modern whatsoever in this place. Reminds me of one of the old hotels in south beach. Most people who stay here go skiing. Definitely a cheaper option then staying in the more pricey Kalahari Resort. They have coffee in the lobby in the mornings (complementary). Overall, hotel staff is pleasant. Activities at the hotel is typical resort-like prices. Recommend you hike the waterfall trail. In the winter, they usually have multiple fireplaces going (if not ask them and they will start one for you). Some nights they have the outdoor firepit going as well. For the kids, they have arcade games and a decent size swimming pool.
We took our grandchildren because of the indoor pool and other activities. We arrived Sunday around 2 to discover our reservation had been canceled. We had to go back and forth with Groupon and finally got it straightened out and got to a room at around 3:30 only to find the toilet did not work! The desk clerk did not pay attention to the fact that this room along with a few others should not be used. We were shown to another room which was fine. The pool never opened until the day we were leaving after being told it would open at 8 a.m. so our grandchildren would have extra time to swim before leaving it never opened until 10...we were in the lobby waiting from 7:45 a.m with 2 anxious kids. The front desk manager Krista was very kind and accommodating and did comp us for the extras on our bill as well as breakfast on the morning we were leaving and this was greatly appreciated but if the communication among the staff had been better it would have made our stay much nicer especially for our grandchildren. I do have to say the staff was friendly with the exception of the night desk clerk who was on the unfriendly side and acted as if it was a bother to help anyone. I would not stay here again.
