How to Get There
I just got back here after staying here for a second time and both times were great. First time I stayed in a one bedroom suite in the summer. This room was so spacious and fit 5 people comfortable. I loved the kitchen because we could bring snacks and food for the kids. My second stay was in a room with 2 queen beds and this room too was nice. Beds were comfortable and didn't hear noise from surrounding rooms. The rooms were clean, well maintained, and very spacious. Rooms were in the South Tower.
The best thing about this place is the outdoor pool. It's so large and warm. Also, there's a nice hot tub and indoor pool. The indoor pool is a good size also. The pool area was nice, but there was a lack of seating and most of tables and chairs were taken. We also used the tennis courts which were good. My kids used the paddle boats on our previous visit and they had a good time doing that. Also, took a walk on one the the trails. There are a lot of things to do there for everyone in the family.
Staff is very friendly and helpful.
First time to this special place. The resort is outstanding. The staff, everyone we encountered was super friendly. Not a cross lad or lass in the lot. Spend a few more bob on a suite with a patio. The views are out of this world. Every meal was better then the last one, The out door pool, heated to 80F. The resort is great.
Purchased snow tubing tickets a few weeks ago, but due to bad weather two weekends in a row, we were unable to go at the time we had picked. Guest services was incredibly helpful and allowed us to change the time twice, which, for me, was so helpful. Really glad they allowed us to do so! Really great customer service.
Meanwhile, I also read that Bear Creek is great for learning how to ski/snowboard, so I decided to try out the adult Discovery snowboarding program for my cousin and me. Best decision ever! Price was very reasonable for what was included. Once we passed all the small technical lessons at the bottom of the hill, we went up the slope and spent almost 3 hours just practicing. We totally lucked out by getting LT Dan as our instructor. Fantastic guy and was incredibly patient with us. Gave us really great pointers and let us learn at our own pace. While I was up there, I was watching a few other instructors teach and they weren't nearly as good or patient with the other students. It takes a lot to teach properly and be able to adjust according to the student's needs and LT Dan has definitely achieved that. (Side note: there was a lady down at the bottom of the slopes that was super helpful when we first were learning, so shout out to her as well!) A lot of the younger instructors weren't as helpful, but were still good with the kids. Glad we got a seasoned veteran to teach us, or else I would have been lost the whole time.
Now that we know this place exists and that it's a lot closer to us than Camelback or the others, we will definitely be coming back. We wanted to stay overnight, but decided not to at the last minute because we were unsure of our plans. However, we will most likely make a weekend out of it next season!
A lot to like about this place.
1. Its much quieter than downtown Allentown.
2. Beds are comfortable
3. I liked the breakfast setup. A small place with excellent selection. I had a fruit cup and vegetable omelet first morning and fruit and bagel next morning. Good coffee, free newspapers.
4. We also had dinner at the large formal restaurant. Food there was pretty good, excellent service, pricey
5. The one thing I didn't like was the bathroom toiletries, imported.
Love it here! Cozy clean modern rooms. Enjoyed going to sleep with the fireplace! Plenty of interesting seating areas. Heated pool fun in winter! Indoor hot tub more fun for the kids. Hot tub was great also. Restaurants are always good. Slopes are small but lines aren’t usually too bad. A great family trip!
