Where I Stayed: 

Chateau Resort & Conference Center – This was your typical resort/conference center hotel. Nothing overly luxurious but I would say make sure you save some time for the outdoor pool surrounded by towering trees. Also, if you can, reserve you and your loved one a suite. The rooms are split level and you walk up a spiral staircase to get to your bed. Makes you feel like you are in a very fancy treehouse.

Where I Ate: 

Shawnee Craft Brewery at Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort – My time at the brewery was easily the highlight of my weekend in the Poconos. We had a beautiful farm to table meal and (even thought I am more a wino than beer kinda gal) the beer was lovely! You can also glamp on property so I will definitely be back!

Desaki – A very large, family friendly hibachi and sushi bar. The food was overall very good and the sushi options are endless. If you are looking for a quiet time with your significant other this is not your place. Desaki is very family/kid family. If you do want to stop by I highly suggest going during lunch.

 Where I Visited:

Kalahari Resorts & Conventions – The next big resort in the Pocono Mountains. Just opened July 1 and has the country’s largest indoor water park. Again, very family/kid friendly (ie. a kids spa) but there is a in-pool bar. So win-win for everyone!

Camelback Lodge – This was our first stop. One of the original resorts in the area that has a large indoor waterpark with a special glass ceiling where you can catch a tan indoors! I was told they will have ski-up access this winter so I will definitely be back to check that out.

What You Should Pack:

This is by no means all that should be in your suitcase, but there are certain things you should not leave home without.

A maxi dress with a denim jacket tied around your waist is the best way to be prepared for warmer days and cooler evenings. A cross body bag is a must as the Poconos is a very active destination and you want your hands free. Also, it rains often in the summer so I would invest in a good pair of rain boots. Lastly, I highly suggest wearing a one piece bathing suit. You will most likely be at an indoor waterpark and it will be covered with kiddos. So keep your ity bity bikini at home.
