Penn Hills Resort - Penn Hills Resort began in 1944 as a local tavern. Soon it grew in popularity and ended up with 500 acres and over 100 rooms. It specialized in honeymoons and romantic vacations and became very popular in the 1960′s. The rooms featured ceiling to ceiling carpet, heart shaped bath tubs and circular beds. It was titled as the ‘Paradise of Pocono Pleasure’ and was especially set for romantic excursions. It closed in 2009 when the co-founder died. It owed over $1 million in back taxes and the County of Monroe has tried to auction it off with no buyers. As of 2013 it remains vacant and groovy.
