Hello Friends! Please join me in celebrating a big birthday on Thursday, April 21, 7pm-on in our new home in the Poconos! I hope you can make this a weekend getaway since there are so many awesome things to do here in the mountains. If you will be staying for another night or two, I can organize horseback riding, wine trail tour, antiquing or go for an easy hike and see the beauty of the mountains. Just let me know when you RSVP if you intend to stay a couple nights.
As much as I would like to accommodate everyone to stay at our home, we just don't have a house big enough (says the ex-New Yorker). Some of you are camping on our property (yay!), but if you want accommodations near our home, please see my recs below. All of these places are no more than a 10-12 minute drive and have been vetted by myself and/or friends. Place to avoid – Rainbow Mountain (believe the reviews). I recommend reserving rooms ASAP as April is when things out here start picking up and rooms get booked up fast!
Our address is 409 Pierce Ln, East Stroudburg for googling distances.
Great location in downtown Stroudsburg aka "Main Street USA" vibe. You are walking distance to Cafe Duet, a gem of a cafe here. Great coffee and sandwiches! There are other bars and food options all walking distance.
Shawnee Inn & Golf Resort
Beautiful historic resort on even more beautiful grounds. They offer a lot of free activities for guest and non-guests every day such as ax-throwing, natural walks, golf cart tours of the grounds, and there is a brewery on site with fire pits etc!
They also have lodges available if you want to go in as a group!
Nostalgia at its best! DeerHead Inn is a world-famous jazz club with a few rooms upstairs. It's located on a really charming street of Delaware Water Gap, with a coffee shop, antique shop, ice cream parlor. And you can also spend a night listening to jazz downstairs or walk to Sango Kura for ramen and sake!
