“the romantic get-away in the Pocono Mountains”
This place is on private property. Listing for informational purposes only. Please do not visit without express permission from the land owner. Penn Hills Resort was a honeymoon resort located in Analomink, Pennsylvania, in the Pocono Mountains that closed in 2009. Founded as a tavern in 1944, Penn Hills expanded to over a hundred roomsThe 500-acre Penn Hills grew in the 1960s to include a ski resort and a golf course. Guest villas featured floor-to-ceiling carpeting, round beds, and heart-shaped bathtubs. Distinctive, modernist streetlights from the 1964 World's Fair were installed, as well as an ice rink and a wedding bell shaped outdoor swimming pool. Billed as a "Paradise of Pocono Pleasure" and a place of "unbridled passion", Penn Hills catered to young couples who enjoyed archery and tennis and danced at modestly lavish New Year's Eve parties where the motto was "No balloon goes unpopped." In 2009, Penn Hills co-founder Frances Paolillo died at the age of 102 and the resort closed less than two months later. Monroe County took over the property in lieu of back taxes. Workers' final paychecks were never issued, and the resort owed the county over $1 million in back taxes. Already in serious disrepair, flooding and copper thieves damaged the buildings further, and the resort was abandoned. By 2012, Monroe County has sold several small parcels of Penn Hills. However, most of the resort was unsold. In January 2016, a group of New York investors purchased what remained of Penn Hills for $400,000. As of May 2016, they were still determining how best to develop the property.
We were able to see this from a distance. There are access points to enter, if you want to enter at your own risk. My children 10-12 were disappointed I would not take this risk. But there are many cars passing, so this would be a risk with children is not worth it. But they still enjoyed exploring a bit.
