Was just there recently and went boating, swimming, horseback riding, and a shooting range. You can also go to Mount Airy Casino if your into that stuff. I actually stayed there and it was very nice

I stayed in the Mount Airy Casino during the week not for shabbos. Its not within walking distance to any shul and I dont think any hotels are unless you stay in the scranton area but you'd have to check into that.

As has been discussed before, stay away from all 3 of these places, unless they have been totally renovated.

+1

Years ago we used to go to their resorts all the time especially when they had the family resort too. Although they are cheesy it was definitely worth the SPG points and you got much more than just a hotel with food, activities, entertainment.....

2 summers ago we went to Pocono palace and had a horrible experience. When we were checking in the Manager comes to the front and starts warning us that if we have a baby with us they will kick us out as if we had one in our trunk!!! Its possible they had such an experience with other frum people unfortunately, but that was no excuse for accusing us and I gave her a piece of my mind! The champagne tower was extremely outdated and run down and the air conditioner barely worked. Of course we filed a complaint with SPG and got our points back.
