Poconos Neighborhood Spotlight: Pocono Manor

Posted by John Holahan on Feb 4, 2017 7:00:00 AM

Poconos-Neighborhood-Spotlight-Pocono-Manor.jpgThere’s an old saying that “fences make good neighbors.” That may well be true, but here in the Poconos we think there’s more to the story than that. If you’re considering building a new home in the region, paying attention to who different neighborhoods is essential!

One of our neighbors here in the Poconos isn’t even a person—it’s a community! Pocono Manor is an unincorporated community in Monroe County. It’s a gorgeous area comprised of more than 60 homes and 150 lots.

The community even has it’s own historic district! Pocono Manor Historic District is a national historic district located in Pocono Township and Tobyhanna Township  encompassing 75 contributing buildings, one contributing site, four contributing structures, and four contributing objects on the historic resort of Pocono Manor.

If you’re looking for something that represents the Poconos history as a resort destination, you need look no further.  Wikipedia reports that, “The resort community was established in 1902, and includes an Inn, recreational complex, and dependent cottage community. The cottage community was originally developed by Quakers and the cottages reflect popular early-20th-century architectural styles including Stick/eastlake, Shingle Style, and Bungalow / American Craftsman. The Pocono Manor Inn was built in nine sections between 1902 and 1949.It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.”

Poconos Manor, however, isn’t just about the past. The Inn at Pocono Manor proudly carries on the resort tradition of the area. In addition to 240 guest rooms and suites that are decorated in the period style of this century-old hotel (but provide all the modern comforts of home), guest have their choice of an abundance of activities at any time of year. Here’s a quick look at the seasonal activities available to you as a guest.

And if you want to have a little bit of summertime fun even in the heart of winter, you can do that at the nearby Kalahari Resorts and Conventions, which will soon be the largest indoor water park in the United States. At their indoor water park you can splash and play in the water to your heart’s content regardless of what the weather is doing outside!

Fences may make good neighbors in some places, but in the Poconos, we prefer neighbors that offer great sights and activities. It’s just one more reason why discerning homeowners come to visit—and end up staying here to live!
