Looking for a quick weekend getaway from New York City?  The Pocono Manor Resort and Spa can provide you with the perfect convenient getaway with your whole family.   There are many family-friendly activities to look forward to, many of which are in the 3,000-acre property.  What attracted us was the fast escape from the city that allowed us to get away with a quick family road trip.  It is less than a 2-hour drive away, which is a kind of trip we are always looking for.  The resort has something to do for everyone; go for a relaxing time or an adventure filled one.  Great for families, friends, and special occasions as well!

It isn't modern by any means, they do have some visible upgrades but is a dated resort in which I find you have to be willing to enjoy the charm that the property provides.  There are old photographs of the resort dating back to the very early 1900's, and the beautiful lobby and common areas are perfect for photos with family and friends.  The resort has been welcoming guests since 1902!  There are beautiful views surrounding the property, making it a popular place for weddings and other special occasions.  Our room had two double beds and a pull out sofa sleeper, along with two bathrooms.  Not our favorite part of our stay but we didn't spend much time in our room with all the beauty and fun that awaited us outdoors!

We loved that there was so much to do on the property, we visited the petting zoo and my kids enjoyed quick "pony" rides.  My son was looking forward to the horseback riding trail ride, but the trail rides are offered for ages 10 and up - a bit of info I missed when planning our trip.  Luckily there was plenty of other activities to keep him and everyone busy and happy.  My husband enjoyed a round of trap shooting, followed by our first experience with BB guns.  I snuck in some time on bicycles that were readily available to at the Manor Sports while my children played Bean Bag Toss.  After a long day of fun outdoors, one that included a visit to the adorable little playground area, we spent the majority of our evening in the indoor pool.  Unfortunately, the majority of my personal photos from our visit got lost with a technical glitch on my phone, but I was able to capture some great ones to share with you all.

I love nature, and being surrounded by it.  The Pocono Manor is a great place for families that are looking for resorts with plenty of activities to keep everyone busy.  We stayed for 2 nights and could've used more time enjoying the activities on the property.  The activities are available with an additional charge, for more information on planning your stay, visit poconomanor.com.
